When Majesco announced NBA Baller Beats, I think some people suspected that it was some kind of dumb joke. Maybe that was just me. But, as evidenced by the above trailer released during E3 2012, it is a very real game where you bounce a basketball to the beat of music.
An interesting element of this ad is that it features an inverted color scheme. Every other trailer of this nature would put one person of African descent and surround them with whiteys. And, of course, it's the pale-skin who screws up while playing. Typical prejudice. The white man is so poorly represented in videogames, it makes me sick.
We're sending Jonathan Holmes to check out NBA Baller Beats on the show floor a little later in the week. Brace yourselves for that.
