Mess. Watch it here: Read More »

At the LA Sports Club In New York, TNT’s Kenny Smith unveiled NBA Baller Beats (produced by Majesco Entertainment), a new video game on Kinect for Xbox 360 that’s essentially Guitar Hero with a basketball. The game itself is relatively simple: As a song plays on your Xbox, different basketball moves flash across the screen for you to perform: right-handed dribble, left-handed dribble, crossover, behind the back, through the legs, shot fake, pass fake, etc. As the music blares, you must perform these moves with the rhythm of the song.
