New B-ball game in the works

Good news for all you B-ball fans out there. Black Ops the developers of March Madness 2001 are on a mission to create a new street tournament basketball title called Street Hoops. This press release below will fill you in to all the juicy gossip that is surrounding this game.

Get ready to lace up your high-tops and drive the lane when Activision, Inc. (Nasdaq: ATVI) introduces Street Hoops(tm) for the PlayStation®2 computer entertainment system and the Xbox(tm) video game system from Microsoft. This gritty street-style basketball game will take players to the most notorious neighborhood courts in 10 U.S. cities as they compete for street cred and bragging rights on the blacktop.

Renowned developer Black Ops Entertainment has been recruited to bring a realistic style of play and original player moves to the game. The Santa Monica-based developer is best known for its award-winning, top-selling traditional sports titles including Knockout Kings and the March Madness series.

"Street Hoops will be the most authentic street basketball game ever released," states Larry Goldberg, executive vice president, Activision Worldwide Studios. "The game returns basketball to its roots, when being the best meant you ruled as king of the playground court. Street Hoops will not only focus on the action and showboating of street basketball, it will include the popular culture and lifestyle that surrounds it."

Street Hoops is a gritty, "in your face" street-style basketball game that encompasses the look, speed, energy and attitude of park/playground blacktop competition. The game allows players to compete in a nationwide tournament representing their hometown on the most notorious street courts in the nation. Players will be able to choose from a roster of athletes and performers, including key athletes made famous by the And 1 Mix Tapes and Nike’s "Freestyle" commercial series.

Realism is the rule, allowing players to bet cash on competitions, buy authentic real-world gear including Sean John, Ecko Unlimited, Southpole, Pure Playaz and more with their earnings, talk trash, shout and throw an elbow, if need be. The game features multiple modes of play including World Tournament, King of the Court, Multi Player vs. Mode and Half-court. Additionally, a large variety of real freestyle basketball moves, dunking with style and a top hip-hop music soundtrack lend to the game’s authenticity.
