EA Confirms NBA Jam For Xbox 360 And PS3 But...

EA has finally announced and confirmed an Xbox 360 and PS3 version of NBA Jam. However, it comes with an interesting pro/con situation. You will get it free with every copy of NBA Elite 11 (hurray!) but there won't be a standalone release on Xbox Live Arcade or PlayStation Network (booooo!) EA’s Jordan Edelstein commented:
“We’re still holding back the Remix Tour for the Wii consumer, and that’s about 20 hours of gameplay."

“But for the PS3 and 360, we want people to try ‘Elite’. We feel like ‘NBA Elite 11′ is a great product and we want people to give it a chance and see all the changes we’re making. So as a way to say thanks to these people, we are going to let them experience ‘Jam’. It’s not the full product, but it’s a good portion of it.”
“We’re not selling ‘Jam’ on PSN or Xbox Live. If you still want the full product, the full experience is on the Wii, but if you pick up ‘Elite’, you’re still getting a good taste of it, especially with the inclusion of online play.”
Bit of a kick in the nadgers if you ask me.
