One of my favorite games of the year has reached the $30 price point on Amazon. Highly recommended if you have a Kinect, a sturdy floor, and enjoy basketball or rhythm games. Keep in mind that you also get a basketball included with the game. It's not a great basketball, but I can confirm it is a basketball.

It's also worth noting it ships in 2-4 weeks.

Yeah, but your bowels will thank you more for buying Baller Beats though.

I'll wait for this to hit $19.99. Needs to be extra cheap to justify pissing off my neighbors downstairs!

Not even worth it for the ball.

This has to be the worst game idea ever.

I've been waiting for a good price on this. I've played it once and it responds really well. Thanks!

I really wish I could play this because it does look fun, but my wife would not be too happy if I played this in our living room, which is where I'd have to play it. My kids wouldn't be too thrilled either. A gloriously terrible idea, that if you have the right setup for it has got to be a worthy purchase.

My right knee is so shot that watching Ship dribble in that position made my knee swell up.

Like some have said, decent idea for a game but it's biggest (and obvious) flaw is that you need a PERFECT setup for this. Hard sturdy floors, not live in an upper leve apartment, nothing fragile around the tv, and tons of room.

If you like rhythm games or basketball, it's pretty fun. I played it at E3 when it was demo'ed. I enjoyed myself even though I'm terrible at basketball. Unfortunately I live in an apartment with carpet floors.

have you ever dribbled a basketball? you can even bounce it on grass if you want. as long as you don't have thick shag carpeting, it's fine.

but yeah, you can't be living above someone unless you want them to hate you.

for the easier levels, as long as you have decent handles, you should be okay. at the harder levels (where you doing behind the back stuff and other more complicated maneuvers), things can get hairy. even the pros at E3 occasionally lost the ball.

ROFLMAO!

The guy talking on the video has no idea what a crossover means. The first guy thought he was going to be going out for the NBA soon but he was winded rather quickly.

The game honestly looks ridiculous.

cut the guy some slack. 95% of people can't even dribble between the legs.

Price up to $39.99. Would pick one up for $29.99, if/when the price drops again.

Alternate use of a toy/beach ball or other ball might be more amenable to some floors. Looks like fun. Sorry to see it so misunderstood and ignored.
