From 1up.com : "While much of the game resembles the impressive just-released 360 version, one of the key new features can actually be found within the confines of the system's controller. The tilt function in the PS3 controller allows players to try out their follow-through motion for free throws using the motion sensitive capabilities.
Graphically, Visual Concepts president Greg Thomas explains that the developers have been able to process more "math" through the PS3 architecture, helping the performance and the aesthetics of the game. We couldn't really see an immediate difference beyond some better reflective textures on the court and the sweat that appears on the player models.

Excerpt: "#22 Detroit Lions (Tecmo Super Bowl)
Before Detroit was the 0-16 laughing stock of the NFL, the virtual Lions were surprisingly good in the early '90s.
The Tecmo Super Bowl Lions were led by Mel Gray and Barry Sanders. These two players alone could carry your offense and decimate almost every defense in the game. For some reason, Barry could not be tackled, and to make matters worse, Mel would run pretty much every kickoff/punt back for a touchdown.
These two players alone make the Tecmo Super Bowl Lions worthy of a list that is not associated with losing."
