'NBA 2K13' demo available on PS3, Xbox

Freestyle stick or shot stick? Remember when that was the hot debate over the proper use of the right analog controls?

After all these years, 2K Sports finally found the right answer: Both.

Check out the video above to learn all the new controls for ‘NBA 2K13,’ and then head online to play the game for yourself as the demo is now available for the Xbox 360 and PlayStation 3.

Finally a game where I can use the right stick to stutter step, crossover, and go behind the back, before using the stick a second time (while holding the left trigger) to throw one down right in my defender’s ugly mug.

Gamers will also be able to use a button to shoot the rock if the stick is too complicated, but after the playing the game for a bit, I have to say, once you learn how to use the control stick with the shot stick, it’s a match made in hoops heaven.
