Earlier this year it was announced that the sports classic NBA Jam would be given new life on the Wii console as a standalone product. Later on in the year, it was announced that a limited version of NBA Jam would also be included as a bonus with copies of NBA Elite 11 for PS3 and 360. This was obviously a point of some concern, as I don’t give a flying f….ig about sports games other than soccer or tennis. The only other sports game that ever held any appeal for me was NBA Jam, and I couldn’t justify paying $60 for a basketball game I wouldn’t play just for a watered down version of what I really wanted.
Lucky for me, NBA Elite 11 is being delayed, and EA Sports has announced that NBA Jam will become available on 360 and PS3 as a standalone product, independent of NBA Elite 11. We can expect NBA Jam to become available by the holidays. There is no word yet if this will be a digital distribution or physical distribution, and at what price we can expect to see it appear.
All I know is that I’m buying it, I’m shooting from downtown, and I’m breaking the glass.
