Street Hip Hoops

Activision keeps it real (but compared to what)

Activision have unveiled the soundtrack for their forthcoming basketball game Street Hoops. Due for release in Europe this September on PS2 and Xbox, the game will apparently "have gamers on their feet" thanks to Activision "keepin' it real" by signing up an entire firmament worth of hip hop stars. Highlights include DMX, Cypress Hill and Method Man, but a bunch of bizarrely named acts such as Xzibit, Pharoahe Monch and Ludacris are also included. Maybe that means more to you than it does to me, because god knows I don't have a clue who they are. Still, with song titles like Make Em Say Ugh, PA To VA and Bottom Feeders [ahem] you can no doubt work out what to expect. On the gameplay front, players can expect nationwide tournaments to take part in, wagers to settle, a range of "famous" street courts to play on as well as fantasy courts to unlock, and a range of ridiculously expensive sports wear to buy from the likes of Sean John, Ecko Unlimited, Southpole, Pure Playaz and AND 1. Which, again, may mean more to you than it does to me (which is absolutely nothing). And this being street basketball rather than the NBA variety, you can even talk trash and shove other players around. Lovely. Related Feature - Street Hoops screenshots

We're guessing this is one of the fantasy courts
