Majesco Entertainment Launches NBA Baller Beats on Kinect for Xbox 360

I’m taking a slight break from covering Mercedes-Benz Fashion Week to let you know about a new interactive video game launching today – NBA Baller Beats. I had the pleasure of attending the preview for this unique video game in July and was wowed by how it allowed the player to develop real Basketball skills and get a real workout (check out my video of a player trying out the game later in this post).

NBA Baller Beats is the first ever motion-based sports video game that requires you to actively play using a real Spalding Basketball in an interactive beats-driven experience. Players earn points while dribbling the basketball to a hot soundtrack that includes Kanye West, Common, Skrillex, LMFAO and more. The video game comes bundled with an official, full-size Spalding® NBA game ball replica for $59.99 and features Deron Williams, Brooklyn Nets point guard and two-time NBA All-Star, on the cover. Not a great Basketball player? The game has Move School where you can practice difficult moves like the cross-over
