Electronic Arts’ next-gen rendition of streetball is visually splendid for the Xbox 360 and PS3. NBA Street’s upgrades don’t stop with the graphic prowess of the new consoles, though. EA has laid down a fact sheet for all the over-hauling this franchise has undergone to bring gamers top-notch b-ball, off the court.
NBA Street Homecourt will include tons of playgrounds and homecourts of legendary basketball stars and a whole new way to play on them. One of the coolest new features is the ability to create tricks on-the-fly, using the new Trick Remixer. Gamers can also use the Trick Remixer to gain respect and earn props in their journey to becoming the greatest street-baller of all time. But enough with the rambling, if you want the facts you can drop down below and read up on all of NBA Street Homecourt’s features.
• Trick Remixer: This all-new trick system gives you the ball and puts it in your hand. Take control of your player's rhythm mixing quick tricks with elaborate moves using two trick buttons. Perform crossovers with an instantaneous response and string together the perfect blend of combinations to take over any game.
• Game Breaker: Unleash a whole new set of over-the-top tricks and electrifying dunks, or watch in disbelief as your rival steals away the opportunity. Whoever has the money ball owns the Game Breaker, so releasing it into play is only the start of the pulse-pounding action.
