This NBA Kinect Game Is A Joke, Right? Right?

This NBA Kinect Game Is A Joke, Right? Right?

Majesco has tonight unveiled a teaser trailer for an upcoming game called NBA Baller Beats. It is… look, just watch the clip.

That’s rapper Common narrating the trailer. The aim of the game is to bounce a basketball — in your living room — in time with the music, then when certain prompts appear, perform some kind of a basketball move. Like Guitar Hero. Only… with a basketball. A real one. In your living room.

I watched this three times convinced it was a joke, but nope. There’s a USA Today piece on it, which adds the game will feature music from “Kanye West, Gorillaz, Run-DMC, Skrillex, Common, Tiësto and Them Crooked Vultures”, and that it’ll feature full NBA licensing.

Amazing. Majesco, you’re either crazy or have balls of steel. Basketballs of steel.
