2K has been going on about all the new features and tweaks in NBA 2K13 for awhile; now it looks like they're finally putting their money where their mouth is, as a demo for the game has just been released. As of now, you can grab it worldwide on LIVE, and in North America and Europe via PSN.
This trial version lets you play through last year's NBA Finals in a single five-minute quarter as the Oklahoma City Thunder or Miami heat. Online quick matches are supported, too, and Kinect owners can try out the new voice recognition feature which lets you call out plays and such. Old timers should keep in mind dribbling has been remapped to the right analog stick.
Hit up your service of choice now to grab it ahead of the October 2 launch.
