NBA Jam is super fun. We want another one.
Well, we'll have to wait and see but if you missed the first title, there's a better edition heading to the digital realm: EA Sports will issue a revamped effort, NBA Jam: On Fire Edition , for the PlayStation Network and Xbox Live services.
It'll release in October and feature better AI (apparently adapted from the Fight Night series), JAM Arena (new, dynamic online competition), Road Trip (competitive online campaign), Tag Mode and Team Fire, online roster updates, more superstars and legendary players, and JAM challenges. Said Trey Smith, NBA Jam: On Fire Edition Line Producer:
"EA SPORTS continues to support this iconic franchise through a new digital download and we're taking everything fans loved about the original and adding a host of new features. We've listened to all of the feedback from our fans and we are driven to deliver the very best NBA JAM experience to date."
Also, EA Sports president Peter Moore announced that a new NBA simulation title is currently in development at Tiburon Studios. They had to scrap NBA Elite 11 last year but they're giving it another go, and this new sim game will be ready in 2012. By the way, NBA Jam was a full Blu-Ray release for $50, but this downloadable title probably won't run more than $20. …damn good deal.
