I would love an NBA Street V4... I didn't play Homecourt but NBA Street V3 was NEAR perfect. The game play was fun, the customization was loaded (create players, shoes, courts) and the career mode was long. Really would love to play that series again.
The one thing the NBA Street series had going for it was its incredible amount of fun, no matter how many times you played it. In fact there was a great stretch of time when everything coming out of EA Sports BIG was just fantastic....then something odd happened in the PS3 and 360 era and for whatever reason, video game fun was gone.
NBA Street Vol 2 had a fantastic formula and V3 completed it imo. I wasnt a fan of Homecourt because it didnt seem like a Street game (double dunks aside). Id love to see a true reboot of the Street series and SSX (A real reboot...) but I dont know if thatll happen any time soon.
I do agree that EA may have more luck re-doing the NBA Street series than trying to push a sim NBA product. In fact, an NBA Street game would probably outsell NBA Live. I can picture it now, NBA Street game with a mode where you could create your own streetball player and play games like you do at the Park in 2K. Now that would be interesting...with servers that actually work. LOL
I agree with the premise of a new NBA Street game but PLEASE make it online option...not online required lol
