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.

Majesco is making an NBA licensed game for Kinect called NBA Baller Beats which uses a real ball.
