When NBA Jam was announced as a Wii exclusive, I was devastated. And wished every night that it would come to the 360, for some HD graphics and online play. Lo and behold, it did! Only as a bundle with NBA Elite 11, a game I had no interest in. I devised schemes of how to get the game, and not have to get Elite 11; most were pretty hairbrained. Well, it looks like they were in vain as NBA Elite 11 has been delayed into 2011. And NBA jam will be launching on its own, possibly on the XBLA or as a full title in time for the 2010 holiday season. I for one am hoping for an XBLA release, but that is just me.
We have put our feelers in with our press contacts but so far the response has been that distribution methods for the game on the Xbox 360 have no been finalized. We will update you when we hear more.
