With the help of our readers and EA, we had an opportunity to interview Todd Batty, Producer of NBA Street Homecourt.
Operation Sports: Are there plenty of animations in the full retail game that we haven’t already seen in the demo?
Todd Batty: Yes, there are definitely more animations in the full retail version of the game than in the demo. There are also more Master Skills to discover in the retail version that showcase player abilities not seen in the demo, and these can have a significant effect on game strategy.
Operation Sports: What can we expect for online play? What about game modes, game types and rankings?
Todd Batty: Online allows for match ups against other users (1 v 1). Although we don’t offer game modes that are unique to online, you can use all of the great offline modes when playing online. We also offer rankings / leader boards and there are achievements on the 360 specific to online. In addition users can take their created ballers online to compete against other users created ballers. We also track a King Of The Court streak online. This is your unbeaten streak and is a weighted leaderboard stat unique to Homecourt.
