NBA Elite 11 Delayed, NBA Jam Standalone Coming in 2010

That bad news is that NBA Elite 11 has been delayed. The good news is that NBA Jam for PS3 and Xbox 360 will be available as standalone products. EA Sports president Peter Moore recently blogged:

NBA Jam will launch on the Wii, as scheduled, on October 5. NBA Jam won recognition this summer as the best sports game at E3 and it’s a blast to play. In addition to the Wii version, we’re going to ship NBA Jam as a standalone product on the Xbox360 and PS3 in time for the holidays. Watch for more news soon on the exact timing of that release.

A lot of my friends are thrilled by this development. They love the arcade-sports style of NBA Jam and don’t give a crap about sports simulation games. I think this is great news too; originally I was going to settle on the Wii version — here’s my NBA Jam E3 2010 preview for Shacknews — but getting the PS3 or Xbox 360 version would be lots of fun to play with you guys online (I hope it supports online play!).

What do you think of the NBA Elite delay and NBA Jam being untethered?

  1. I think NBA Jam might be a decent basketball game to pick up. It has been a while since my fiance and I have played it, but we have NBA 2K8 and used to go head to head all the time. This might be a more lighthearted game to pick up so we can start doing that again sometime.

    If I had enough money for it I would love to get her one of the new xbox's so she could get online at her house and her own copy of a game like this so we could play against each other when I am not up there or she isn't down here with me while I am at school. I think this is the type of game we could easily do that with.

  2. I would like to think that EA saw a bunch of vids of 2k11 and realized they can't possibly release their crap NBA title.

  3. It’?s u?nfortunate. You hope both teams play hard, play by the rules. They’re (Tech) a good football team?. We’ve been ta?lking to our kids all week about keeping our poi?se and doing things right.
