Majesco Entertainment has announced today that they are bringing NBA Baller Beats to Kinect for the Xbox 360 this Fall, and have lofty goals of destroying your living room with a basketball. You see, while most games on Kinect simply involve the person flailing their arms and legs up and down, and having the Kinect sensor ‘see’ them, Majesco has a unique vision to literally force the player to bounce a basketball in the middle of their living room.
What better way to teach a young aspiring athlete to learn how to control a basketball by forcing them to learn in a small space in the middle of their house? That is unless Majesco expects people to hook up Xbox 360′s and Kinect units outside, on an actual basketball court. Either way, this Fall, NBA Baller Beats will attempt to teach you how to play the game right inside your own home!
From the press release that was sent out this morning,
Aspire to perform like a pro in NBA Baller Beats as you train alongside your favorite NBA franchise unlocking songs, difficulty levels, and over 100 posters and trading cards showcasing NBA players’ greatest moves. The music is your guide as you master ball handling skills, dribbling, and baller moves with a real basketball as Kinect technology tracks your every crossover, pump fake, behind-the-back, around-the-world and more! Become the ultimate baller and increase your stamina in single player mode, break it down and practice different skills in Move School mode or show-off in multiplayer mode and go head-to-head against up to 8 players – the highest score wins bragging rights. No matter the level of your skills, players of all abilities will enjoy getting off the couch and raising their game with NBA Baller Beats.
The NBA Baller Beats soundtrack features a mix of music across decades and genres including hip-hop, rock, and old school classics, with tracks from Kanye West, Run DMC, Gorillaz, Them Crooked Vultures, Common, Tiesto and more. Majesco Entertainment will unveil NBA Baller Beats gameplay, as well as additional soundtrack artists and songs, during the annual Electronic Entertainment Expo held in Los Angeles this June before setting out to give fans a try at exclusive basketball camps this summer.
