NBA Street crosses over to PS3, 360

Gravity-defying streetball game hits new courts in spring 2007; game headed to PS3 and Xbox 360 only, no current-gen versions planned.


While Electronic Arts' NBA Live series sees annual editions of its basketball simulation game hit stores near the onset of the NBA season, there isn't a regular schedule for its streetball counterpart, NBA Street. However, a new edition appears roughly every other spring, and EA seems to be sticking to the semi-schedule.

The next edition of NBA Street, which has not yet been named, is set to ball in spring 2007. The game will continue the three-on-three gameplay familiar to the series, but not necessarily on the courts gamers are used to. So far, the game has been announced for the PlayStation 3 and Xbox 360, and an EA rep has confirmed that it will be on those platforms only.

"The power of the next-generation hardware gives us the horsepower to break new ground for consumers, making it the perfect stage for the next iteration of NBA Street," said Wil Mozell, executive producer of the game.

Details on the game are about as hard to track down as Allen Iverson in the open court, but it appears as though the new game will be set in a sort of "Basketball City, USA," and the goal will be to "put your hometown on the map." A description from EA says, "The newest iteration of NBA Street creates a hyper-real world that merges legendary courts with the hometown courts of your favorite NBA stars into one seamless city of streetball moments."

The next iteration of NBA Street has not yet been rated or priced.
