There has been a lot of confusion with this title as of late. Originally to be bundled with NBA Elite 11, NBA Jam will now go solo to keep the NBA fans happy until the NBA Elite 11 delay-saga is sorted out.
NBA Elite has always been situationally placed next to the NBA season, but with the delays and the reported lost of over 1 million sales due to the delay, NBA Jam sets to fill that hole left by EA.
Jam is set to cost $50, the same as the Wii version of the classic and will be released on November 17. Game modes consist of classic 2-on-2 online, plus additional game modes with a title update sometime in December.
There’s no point in hiding the fact that we think EA are only releasing this game to fill the empty void left by NBA Elite 11, but is it enough to keep you satisfied until we get more word on EA’s basketball holiday game?
