NEW YORK, NY — (Marketwire) — 07/23/12 —
In anticipation of the upcoming launch of ‘NBA Baller Beats‘ (Kinect for Xbox 360), Majesco Entertainment (NASDAQ: COOL) invites NYC media to get their hands on the first ever full-body motion-based NBA video game that lets players perform like a pro using a real basketball. Join two-time World Champion and NBA veteran Kenny Smith, along with New York Liberty player Essence Carson and teen baller phenom Jashaun Agosto, as they demo the game that challenges players to master ball-handling skills by dribbling and performing moves to the beats of an eclectic soundtrack.
The music is your guide as the Kinect motion sensor captures every movement of both player and ball to create an entirely new basketball gaming experience. NBA Baller Beats will come packaged with an official Spalding NBA game ball replica and will make its debut September 11, 2012.
For more information on the video game, please visit www.NBABallerBeats.com
