Up until a few days ago, the upcoming NBA Jam for the PlayStation 3 and Xbox 360 was a downloadable game.
But things have changed. And as the game's creative director Trey Smith told Toronto sports radio show Got Game , this really came out of the blue. Now, it's a full retail product. "We got this bomb dropped on us just a couple days ago," said Smith. "So we're shuffling to get everything together, but we got a great team; we got a lot of stuff up and working…we're gonna get it out there before the holidays." EA Canada has already finished the Wii version, which will be in stores nationwide later today, and they already had online implements planned for the digital version. It was even going to be included with new copies of NBA Elite 11 but now that the latter has been delayed until next year, it seems EA wants NBA Jam to pick up some of the slack on store shelves. By the way, that very cool Remix Tour will be featured in all versions of the game, but it'll be a race to the finish line to get it all done. "We're trying to throw it all in there," Smith finished.
Yeah, well, we really miss NBA Jam , and we can't be happier that it's going to multiple platforms, including the PS3. Who remembers the awesomeness that was the Tournament Edition on the SNES?
