Xbox 360 owners can now go download the demo for NBA 2K11, arriving three weeks ahead of the full game's release. PS3 owners were still waiting as of 5pm MDT (9am AEST) but the demo is expected on PlayStation Network today.
The game gives you one five-minute quarter of Lakers-Celtics on the pro difficulty, but you may only play as the Lakers. The audio commentary is also removed, but the pre-game animations are there to give you a sense of how a big game will be presented.
The free download clocks in at 715MB. You can queue it up here on Xbox Live Marketplace.
