The lights are on
Just when you thought the music genre was running out of ideas, Majesco unveiled a bizarre NBA-licensed entry for the Kinect. While at a glance it may look like a simple dribble coaching game, NBA Baller Beats is a music game at heart, combining the musical precision of games like Rock Band with a physical basketball. Watch the video below to see Game Informer's Bryan Vore show off his dribbling moves as Majesco's Tony Chien explains the history and different features of the game.

Nah, ill scip this but i like the idea. Maybe if theres a sequal.
Although I won't be purchasing it- this is actually a really neat idea, because imagine what we could integrate into Kinect and Move and other things in the future. :D
I don't have a kinect, but even if I did the only thing that would result from this game would probably be a basketball lodged in my tv.
Sounds weird, but it looks will it works with precision.
I think this is the most interesting concept, next to in-game voice commands, that they have come up with on the kinect. I do not have a xbox or a kinect, I hope that they actually pull this off. Although rage quitting this game will result in a ball smashing everything in the room.
Pretty cool concept, but how many gamers are there that like both basketball and have Kinect? I know I wouldn't buy this game if I had Kinect.
I think my parents would have thrown a fit if I tried to dribble a basketball in front of the TV when I was kid.
It's certainly a neat idea though.
You know what? Good for everyone here. This is a crazy, but inspired, idea. It's certainly fresh, so I applaud it. I also like the idea of a Rhythm game that doesn't need a peripheral - MOST PEOPLE should have a bouncy ball somewhere in their homes, if not a basketball proper.
This looks pretty cool. I suck at dribbling, so maybe this can help me get better at that.
