NBA JAM feature packed, over-priced


  • NBA JAM feature packed, over-priced

    NBA JAM's reboot was initially going to be a Nintendo Wii exclusive, with non-online versions bundled with the now cancelled NBA Live, err, "NBA Elite" 2011. It turns out that with EA Sports' flagship basketballer put on the bench, and the high anticipation for some old-school boom-shakalaka action, it was decided NBA JAM would see its very own Xbox 360 and PlayStation 3 release - in HD, with full online multiplayer support. It's not all good news, though...

    From what I'm reading around the intertraps, most people expected NBA JAM would appear on XBLA and PSN. Instead, it'll be hitting retail stores, boxed. What people expected to pay $15-$30 for, is now going to cost AUD $75. Yes, that's right, $75! As excited as I am, and even aching to get my hands on this, it must be said that $75 is outrageous. Even so, I can't not buy it. It's out November 25th.

      People were expecting it to come free with their copy of NBA Elite 11, then when that was canceled seeing as how it is basically at the level of the arcade games, it would probably cost about $15 on the XBL Marketplace, $50 is kind of outrages...

      so not worth it, it is definitely an arcade game. full game size is 1.24gb - arcade games are upto 2gb.

      Definitely not worth the money - agreed. But it's awesome. If only it were $15-$30 instead.
