NBA Jam Dated

EA Sports has announced a PS3/Xbox 360 release date of November 17th (26th in the UK) for its upcoming game ‘NBA Jam’.  At launch you will be able to play Classic 2-on-2 online, and in December 2010 the online features for the game will expand significantly with several major online features being delivered through a free title update.

This update will allow you to go online to compete in Remix Games, including classic arcade hoop games like Backboard Smash, Domination Free-for-All, Elimination, and 21. You will also be able to invite up to three online friends to play. Levelling up through a series of challengers and secret online JAM Challenges unlocks online exclusive rewards and hidden content.


There is still no mention of being able to go downtown.

  1. why would’t they wait until it was finished?

  2. Awesome. Only problem i have with this being that i have such very fond memories of nba jam, i really hope they’re not ruined. “he’s on fire!”

    • The Wii version has been getting high praise, so fingers crossed all is good.

  3. Hopefully this is a PSN download for around £10. A full BR release would be too expensive.

  4. I love NBA Jam it’s one of my favourite gaming memories from the Megadrive, but £29.99 disc release is flumping ridiculous

    What started out as a bonus for NBA Elite 11 customers has now been bumped for a full release, because Elite was so impossibly shit EA would sooner have cancelled it than have it released is now £29.99

    EA = robbing basterds

    Saying that, it will be one of the best local co-op games you can buy

  5. I thought this was only for people who bought the other basket ball game i cant remember the name of?

    Wasn’t essentially a demo on a £40 game

    • Yes it was, but that game (NBA Elite 11) got canned for being crap, so this glorified demo is now being sold to us for £29.99 and the bits that make it a game are being released as free dlc at some unknown point in the future

  6. BOOMSHAKALAKA!!!!!!!!

  7. If its anywhere near as good as it was on the SNES count me in….
