EA Sports bringing superior version of NBA Jam to 360/PS3

by dsheinem Wed Oct 20, 2010 7:03 pm

The old thread was about the Wii version. This one is about the upcoming PS3/360 version.

It will feature everything from the Wii version plus HD graphics, online multiplayer, and perhaps a few other things yet to be revealed. You'd have to think DLC and roster updates could be a possibility....hopefully TAG mode will be included as well.

Kotaku says (Gamestop says) November 16th for $50: http://kotaku.com/5669168/nba-jam-on-36 ... d-for-4999

Here's hoping Amazon has it closer to $40 :D

So who is getting this - and what version? I don't have XBL Gold, but may get a subscription for a while if a bunch of you are looking to play this online regularly. Otherwise, I'll probably opt for the PS3 version and look for people there.

I have been playing the Wii version quite a bit with my friends, without a doubt I will get hold of a 360 version if it includes everything and more.

I couldn't wait and already grabbed the Wii version, but I'm irresponsible with money so maybe I'll get the 360 version as well. :lol:

I hope it is the same game with online mulitplayer and better visuals. Not because I already bought the Wii version (I am planning on buying the PS3 version aswell), but to piss off the fanboys.

To accompany the release of the new NBA Jam, Mick Boogie threw together this mixtape with Dime, MAJOR, Motivation and HOMAGE celebrate the game’s legacy with classic remixes from the ’90s

FYI:

The retail version of NBA Jam for Xbox 360 and PlayStation 3 will just include Classic Mode, which may disappoint people that don't game online.

However, the patch coming the day it releases will add online versus and co-op, along with the rest of the modes the game offers.


i guess it's only superior with a patch. :lol:

Welp. The game is out and there's no Tag Mode. Stupid EA! So now I'll just wait for it to show up in my pawn shop for $10. Then maybe I'll pick it up... maybe :?
