Downloadable NBA Jam title coming to PS3 and Xbox 360
This is a bummer for any of you out there who decided to buy the full retail version of the game last year, but for the rest of us, this is some great news. I passed on the new version of NBA Jam that came out last year thinking it was priced a little bit high, and the gods have blessed me with this. NBA Jam On Fire Edition will be hitting PSN and XBLA this October. Just from reading the EA press release for the game, it appears the downloadable version will have more features than the full retail version and will be the best version available. There’s no word on whether or not there will be a Wii version in the future.
The game will have online play, with both competitive and co-op modes and will include all of the things we have come to love from the NBA Jam series. EA had this to say about NBA Jam On Fire Edition: “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.”
Sounds like it’ll be something worth keeping an eye on. I hope EA is offering some kind of apology to the people out there who decided to buy the full retail version of the game last year that will have less features than the upcoming downloadable title. Oh well, it’ll be the first time playing it for me!
