ESPN has broken the news about what EA is going to announce. It is the return of NBA Jam!
where are nba street and ssx,EA?
NBA Jam!? The return of Beastie Boys and Bill Clinton? They should have 50+ characters, and DLC. This is my favorite Arcade B-Ball game other than NBA on NBC Showtime.
... I would have been more excited to hear the return of SSX, like you said...
"He's on FIRE!" Nice can't wait.
where-tf is my SSX HD?!
...instead of NBA Jam, I would much rather see NBA Street.
NBA Street V3 was one of the best sports games ever, and it's such a shame it never REALLy got a worthy HD sequel.
SSX3 was also amazing, SSX on Tour a huge let-down, but I'd love a new SSX as well. :)
And while we're on the subject of games we'd rather see make a triumphant return in HD, what about a proper sequel to Def Jam FFNY, one of the best fighters of last gen!?
Sweet i love NBA Jam. Im liking all these arcade and old school games coming back. Never really got into the whole realism of the newer sports games. I prefer a arcade style game, just drop the coin and play!
NBA Street Homecourt came out on the 360 and PS3 ...
I hope the 360 can handle the game though... The dunking and the fire and all the crowds and the camera flashes....i dont know if the 360 would be able to do it all... We'll see though :)
YES! I missed NBA Jam. Over the top dunks FTW. HE'S HEATING UP!
... Sorry fellas... I had more fun cranking up the arcade mode in NBA Live. So take it like a man and accept it... SSX will ALWAYS be a better game than NBA Jam... because it's not hard to outdo a game like that.
NBA Jam was a midway game. Could be wrong though
Both Midway and Acclaim used to publish NBA Jam titles, I guess EA must have bought them recently?
Midway is bankrupt, with many of its properties being sold namely NBA Jam. Acclaim was known for publishing Midway arcade ports way back in the day, Midway was not making console games in those days.
Didn't Warner Bros buy most of Midway's properties including NBA Jam? Anyway, the series was beyond awesome and was easily among the best arcade games of its time along with MK2-3.
None of the licensed NBA, NFL, etc stuff was bought by Warner since they basically had to jump through hoops with organizations like the NBA to be able to use them again.
nba jam was one of the only sport games i played. "hes on fire" ahhh good times, good stuff.
One of the classics..Unfortunately the rumor is that its only for the Wii!
i hope they dont ruin it(not because its on wii)
"Is it the shoes?"
Boom Shaka Laka Laka.
i was going to post the same thing, it was the only basketball game i played on the genesis
Meh , nba street was a great and perfect evolution of the arcade basket concept ... while past nba jam have been mediocre and a a gimmick . Unless it's nba street in disguise and with a more popular license
where is the "EA sports BIG" teams that created ssx and nba street? Maybe they'll answer soon enough.
Well its about time. Now bring back Streets of Rage
Wii exclusive. We can all stop getting excited now... lame.
I guess the best part of this is that it probably means NBA jam might come to VC Arcade. If not maybe at least we'll see the genesis or snes version. Otherwise. I would be more excited to hear that then anything else.
Wow big let down being wii only i would have bout this day one if it was ps3 or 360.
the 360 wouldnt be able to handle it...but i would've gotten it for ps3...you know...to avoid the RROD and all that with all the craziness that goes on in NBA jam... Maybe one day though :)
this deserves to stay a vintage classice and is a big reason my genesis is still hooked up...
I remember back in grade school when my local mall had gotten a arcade cabinet of the game... and it had Scorpion, Sub Zero, and Raiden playable!
Ummm yeah that game sucks lol. Horrible reviews for the 360 version, don;t expect a good game on PS3.
leave it alone. classic games shouldn't come out on newer consoles.
NBA Jam & NBA Hangtime would be great...
Why is EA handling this? Wasn't Acclaim responsible for NBA Jam on the SNES and Hangtime on the 64? You know what? Who cares NBA Jam is coming back, about time. They better have classic teams like the 90's bulls,knicks,pacers because the teams today are garbage!
Heard this is a Wii exclusive too. If it turns out that this is the case, everyone who's excited now will try to say the game sucks..I love the theater.
Damn, the childhood memories are coming back. I think I played NBA Jam more than any other sports game.
