As with most major publishers, Majesco will have a presence at E3 next month. Their headliners are NBA Baller Beats
, supposedly the first motion-based basketball game for Kinect, and something they've been talking about since last E3
. They are also premiering the next iteration of their popular Zumba Fitness
title. No offense to Majesco, but I hope they have something besides yet another Kinect sports title and yet another fitness game. I'm actually getting a little depressed that nobody is doing anything else with Kinect besides ripping off Wii fads. I was disappointed and bored with casual sports titles and fitness games four years ago; now can someone please use this technology for at least one iota of its potential? If nobody does, I wouldn't be the slightest bit sad if Kinect rolled over and died tomorrow.
