Something as niche as a full-price basketball rhythm game for Kinect sold only 3,000 copies in its debut month? While unfortunate, you can hardly be too surprised. According to the NPD by way of Joystiq, that's how NBA Baller Beats performed in the United States during September.

Perhaps the original pitch showed promise -- I'd be curious to see how this got greenlit in the first place -- but one has to admit that the odds were clearly stacked against NBA Baller Beats being a success. Just because there is a gap in the market doesn't mean it needs to be filled.

Majesco is making an NBA licensed game for Kinect called NBA Baller Beats which uses a real ball. Above is a teaser narrated by rapper Common which promises a gameplay demonstration this June at E3.  I have just one question: Did nobody at Majesco have a mother to tell them not to bounce a ball in the house?more

EA spent tons of money on this 'kooky' 'viral' Madden trailer

I bet the people involved had a lot of fun shooting this offbeat Madden 15 commercial. It's also an obviously expensive production (beyond the celebrity costs) meant to be "weird" and, hopefully, shared (viral) over the Net....more

Pro Evolution Soccer 2015 declares 'the pitch is ours' in November

I'll be honest, I haven't played a Pro Evolution Soccer game since the PlayStation 2 days but after the series lagged behind EA's FIFA juggernaut for the last few years, I'm keen to try the series again on a current-gen platf...more
