When you think of videogames and sports, EA and 2K are usually the first publishers to come to mind. During the busiest week in gaming, Majesco have announced that they plan to change that as the publisher is teaming with the NBA to bring about an original basketball game in 2012.
“Majesco consumers are interested in branded gameplay, and we are excited to be teaming with a global brand like the NBA, to develop a unique and fun gaming experience,”said Jesse Sutton, Chief Executive Officer, Majesco.
Not a whole lot is known at the moment about Majesco’s new step in the genre except that the new NBA title will utilize “motion-based gaming technology” and will be “unlike most traditional sports video games”. In my opinion sports titles need something different, and even though we know nothing about what will come of this at the moment, Majesco’s final product will certainly be one to keep an eye on.
