Playground basketballers everywhere can now get their game on street-style with Activision, Inc.’s Street Hoops for the PlayStation2 computer entertainment system and Xbox* video game system from Microsoft. The game features a slammin’ soundtrack, authentic apparel, notorious courts like NYC’s The Cage and Rucker Park, and a roster of playground legends including 1/2 Man 1/2 Amazing, Headache, Hot Sauce and more, as featured in the AND 1 Mix Tape Series. Street Hoops is currently available at retail outlets nationwide at a suggested retail price of $49.99 and is rated "T" (Teen - gambling, strong lyrics) by the ESRB. "Street Hoops delivers an authentic ’in your face’ playground experience with the energy, intensity and showmanship of real-life street ball," said Larry Goldberg, executive vice president, Activision Worldwide Studios. "With real-world courts, today’s top streetball stars and exciting action on- and off-the court, Street Hoops will be a slam-dunk for fans."

The game allows players to compete in a nationwide tournament representing their hometown on the most notorious street courts in nine U.S. cites, as well as four fantasy courts that can be unlocked during gameplay. 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 1 and more with their earnings, talk trash, shout and push other players around, if need be. The game features multiple modes of play including World Tournament, Lord of the Court, and multiplayer Full Court and Half-court games. Additionally, a large variety of real freestyle basketball moves, dunks and a top hip-hop music soundtrack featuring Cypress Hill, Method Man and Redman, Xzibit, DMX, Master P, Ludacris, and more, lend to the game’s authenticity. Street Hoops for the Xbox video game system from Microsoft is the first game on Xbox to support HDTV resolution of 720p running at 60fps.
