NBA Baller Beats sells 3,000 U.S. copies in debut month photo



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.

NBA Baller Beats a grim portent for home furnishings

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

Football sure has its ugly side, whether it's match fixing, hooliganism, and John Terry's wandering hands. Football Manager, for all its accuracy, never takes into account any of these things, but Dirty Sexy Soccer does. It'...more

Review: Kinect Sports Rivals

The original Kinect Sports for the Xbox 360 did exactly what it set out to to do. It didn't set the world on fire or reinvent gaming as we know it, but it showed that despite some gimmicky features, the Kinect actually w...more

Review: Rusty's Real Deal Baseball

During the first hour of Rusty's Real Deal Baseball I babysat one of the titular character's 10 kids, played a 4DS, and fed him donuts while I listened to his marital problems. I'm glad Nintendo decided to make this game.more
