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.
