NBA Jam Releasing on Disc for 360

Electronic Arts has finally cleared up what’s been an open question for a number of weeks now: With the new NBA Jam reboot originally planned to be a free bonus in copies of NBA Elite 11 for the Xbox 360 and PlayStation 3, in what form would it hit those platforms now that NBA Elite 11 has been delayed? Answer: A standalone disc-based release.
Rumors of such a decision picked up steam earlier this week when Gamefly showed box covers in their listings for NBA Jam on the PS3 and Xbox 360. Speaking with Kotaku, EA Sports Vancouver’s Jen Riley explained there’s a simple reason for that: "The fact that retailers are showing the box is because we are shipping Jam in a box on [Xbox 360 and PS3]," Riley said. "We just haven’t announced a firm date."

A projected price wasn’t given, either, nor was there any confirmation that the 360 and PS3 versions would include any extra features that the downloadable Wii version didn’t have. And while there’s no firm date yet, EA Sports president Peter Moore did say that they want it out on the 360 and PS3 "in time for the holidays," back when he confirmed it would be released separately from NBA Elite 11.

So when that firm date comes along, we’ll pass it on.
