GoNintendo has one screen from the title, NBA Jam. Enjoy.
Exactly what i wanted from the title. Looks great.
looks old school
am i the only one who hates that picture..?
I can't wait to play this game on my incredible Wii! My most anticipated games on the Wii (2010): NBA Jam Tatsunoko Vs Capcom Monster Hunter 3 Mario Galaxy 2 Zelda Wii Sin and Punishiment 2 Red Steel 2 The Grinder Metroid: Other M Tales of Grace Monado: Beginning of the World No More Heroes 2: Desperate Struggle Samurai Warriors 3 BTW, I played Silent Hill, GREAT game! Excellent year! It's good that I can have all the consoles, so I will be able to enjoy all the games. Don't be a stupid hater, be a gamer. :)
Five Syllables: Boomshakalaka!
Please joe, 3 words are needed. "He's on fire!"
"am i the only one who hates that picture..?" Must be. Looks like a good old arcade game to me. Big smiles :-) "Who the hell in their right mind over at EA decided it was a bright idea to make this for Wii only?" Well it must not of had good enough graphics for the people that only own a HD console. Luckily for me i have both. Unlucky for you...so it seems.
Why is this exclusive? This seems like perfect DLC for the other consoles as well.
because they can make more money off it being full priced on Wii than 20 dollar dl on hd consoles.
That looks great.
yea it really does. Love arcade type games. Wish they produce a Wii NFL Blitz.
Who the hell in their right mind over at EA decided it was a bright idea to make this for Wii only? Just after they finished bashing the Wii for poor game sales too. A really early entry to the "Top Dumbf*ck Ideas of 2010". This needs to be released for 360/PS3.
You honestly think there is a huge market for this kind of game on xbox/ps3?
Bigger than there is on the Wii, by leaps and bounds. Are you unaware that this is a game from the Genesis/SNES/Arcade? Guarantee you that a majority of the people who were fans of it then, are on PS3's and 360's today, not Wii's.
Couldn't agree more. I was about to say the same thing. I was all hyped up to pit my Kobe/Gasol combo up against Lebron/Shaq, KG/Pierce and D12/Vinsanity...then they announced it was going to the Wii. FAIL.
i would buy it for the ps3. i loved nba jam for the super nin and ps2. i think this game looks about like the super nintendo version
Same with Tatsunoko vs. Capcom. I don't see the motive behind such a dumb decision, especially when the game already failed in Japan.
where's the PSN & XBOX LIVE download... seriously??
you all need to do the following to get it on PS360 cry moar!
Cry moar. :)
Lolwut? Wii fanboys! awwwwwww...
Lol, there are alot of games for HD consoles that the Wii won't have and Wii owners aren't complaining but look at how angry the HD only owners are because of one title. Very funny, just like Muramasa. That's why I have more than 1 console. :)
Awesome, Wii fanboys. Quite a rare sight. Can I have your autographs?
the Wii fanboy is very rare around these parts...
Is there even a demeaning name for them? I know 360 fanboys are called bots, and for some reason PS3 fanboys are called droids, but what about Wii fanboys?
Actually, I have an x360. I just think that complain about this game not coming for HD consoles is childish. HD consoles has a lot of games, can't the Wii have his exclusives? Stop being so selfish, if you want to play this game buy a Wii just like Wii owners have to buy an HD console in order to play FFXIII. Also, can't you stay in your section? That's what Wii owners are always doing. You should grow up man, soon you will have a woman and a little baby, so you will have to be a man, not a child. I am not a Wii fanboy but it's good to see people arrogant like you angry because some games aren't coming for your favorite console.
how about wiiners? you know, like weeners... and winers... haha.
Yeah, it's real childish of me to not wanna waggle my way down the court in a new NBA Jam. It's so childish of me to wanna play NBA Jam online with my friends in our established gaming networks. I'm such an arrogant prick for saying it should come to all platforms. F*ck, I'm such an asshole.
"It's so childish of me to wanna play NBA Jam online with my friends" Buy an Wii and call your friends just like Wii owners have to buy a PS3/x360 in order to play Boderlands online.
The wii was specifically designed to appeal to lapsed gamers who left after SNES and NES. Saying you guys went to xbox or ps3 ignores everyone who left and never came back. Research shows (Miaymoto comments on this in nintendo dev interviews on Super Mario 5) that the wii and ds succeeded in this. Hence it is better suited on wii. WTF is with saying you have to waggle thorough this? You can play wii games with controllers. That's why the wiimote turns sideways to be a NES CONTROLLER, GENIUS. Wario, Mario, Muramasa, SSBB, Punchout, etcetc all use normal controllers. Have you even played a wii? I will link this to the next discussion on "wii haz no gamesz" sure to pollute the section soon. Go back to your own and talk about uncharted or halo or something.
It's being published by EA so if it has online it will be on an established network because EA uses their own network for all their titles.
"...then they announced it was going to the Wii. FAIL. " "This needs to be released for 360/PS3." "Who the hell in their right mind over at EA decided it was a bright idea to make this for Wii only?" Arent you the same kind of people that complain there are no good games for the wii. Yet when the wii get good, exclusive games...you still complain! It goes like this - - The wii SUCKS...no good games!! I want to play real games!!... and continues to this - WHat? Exclusive to the wii ?? monster hunter, mad world and nba jam!! Wii sucks!! Sounds very hypocritical to some people. Like me. Plus the world needs more exclusives. It's what defines a console. Also I love nba jam, but this game still does have to prove itself.
@Mini Mario - It would be helpful if you could keep all your trash talk about me in one spot, instead of spreading it across several different posts. I'll make it easy for you, though. I'll just keep my response all tucked into one post, k? As far as I'm concerned, 2D gaming is a lost art, and I don't even own an HDTV. The game could be a direct port graphically and I'd still buy it. I've also considered buying a Wii many times. I've owned every Nintendo console ever made since the NES, and still own an SNES and GameCube. I love Mario and Zelda games, Super Mario World being my favorite game of all time. Even if I did own one, it doesn't mean I'd love to play NBA Jam on it. I would still much rather play it on a 360 or PS3. How many of my friends own Wii's? One, and I barely talk to him as it is. How many of my friends own 360's and PS3's? About 30, most of whom I'm actively social with. You'd also be hard-pressed to find a recent post of mine complaining about the lack of Wii games. I don't "constantly complain" about the Wii. The article reached 50 degrees, or I saw it in pending. I don't go into the Wii subsection. Hell, I don't go into any subsection. If it's not on the front page or in pending at the right time, I don't even see it. Every now and then the Wii gets a 3rd party game I'm interested in, and then its developers complain about the lack of a core gaming community on the Wii because it's a sales bomb of biblical proportions. What does that say about you guys who supposedly love your Wii? @Spoony - Yeah, I'm sure it would work fine and all that, I'd just like to play with friends, and basically none of my friends own Wii's.
Xiphos Your complaint about what console your friends own is irrelevent. Why can't your friends come over to your house to play NBA Jam? Is that to hard for you and your friends to do? The Wii's controls are not that hard and this is the reason why arcade style games can be played by anyone even if you don't own a Wii. If your friends can't figure out 2 buttons while over at your house with a Wii than my bad, but to be honest it seems as though you are angry because you don't even own a Wii so how is your opinion supposed to count in the first place when this game is Wii exclusive?
Could be the perfect move,think of all the dads who have bought Wii's for there kids,then see it and think that was ace when I was young.think i'll buy it for my *cough* kids *cough* Plus the cost vs returns are profit guarantees,if that profit allows for/pays for the cost of HD development then i'm all for it. Last time I played a Jam game game it had Kemp,Mullins,Ewing,Malone+Stoc kton at their primes :)
So long as they don't throw in some dumbass motion controls, I'm down with this. If I have to waggle to break the backboard, forget about it.
"I'm such an arrogant prick for saying it should come to all platforms. F*ck, I'm such an asshole. " I gave you an "agree" for this part of your comment. SO dont think people were agreeing with your sarcasim. And yeh you do sound like a prick? What do you call a wii fanboy>? Well since i own all systems, play all systems from past and present what do you call me? Im a big fan of the wii. Tell me who is more of a fanboy. Some1 like me who loves the wii yet still plays street fighter 4 and tekken 6, or halo. Or someone like you who would never own a wii even though there are obviously great games on the system for everyone who likes games. Waggle controls down the court? Almost every recent wii titles gives you options for the controller. Sideways, classic, gamecube, nunchuk and remote. Dont you know anything about a system you constantly complain about? Very sad indeed.
If it was a xbla/PSN title it would sell like hot cakes. I guarantee this bombs on the Wii.
sell like hotcakes? really, well then they picked the right system 50+ million install base
i don't really see many PSN/XBLA games even reach past the 1 million mark only one i know of off the top of my head is castle crasher just saying though
These supposed fans of NBA JAM want the game to be a 5$ downloadable game. Wow, just wow. You so called hardcore gamers are any thing but. Don't the hardcore follow the games? and not the system? I guess I'm just old school that way.
IF YOU BUY IT since your a "hardcore" gamer or are you to scared of 480p D:
I'm in the Wii section after all :)
"Why can't this come out for a real system? If it was a xbla/PSN title it would sell like hot cakes. I guarantee this bombs on the Wii." Last time i checked my wii it seemed pretty real. Wasnt like a imagination i had or anything, it really was there. I really hope digital download doesnt become the norm and take over. I prefer to actually own major release games and not download them. @The fanboys - "was all excited until I saw this was only coming to the Wii... Now I won't touch it. " - "I'd buy this in a second... ...if it came to either ps3 or 360." How pathetic. Meaning you obviously think the game will be good. But because its on the wii...it some how wont? Sad to be you !
you can say whatever stupid trash talk you want but you know if it bombs its because of those hardcore gamers with the dusty wiis that were to foolish to buy it and then they'll complain about how the wii has no hardcore like the idiots they are
Put this thing on the PS3 for God's Sakes and give us online and a $5 price tag!!
wow your a rare kind to bad this is going to be a great game
I'd buy this in a second... ...if it came to either ps3 or 360.
I was all excited until I saw this was only coming to the Wii... Now I won't touch it. And I OWN a wii...that's the bad part.
why not just play it on the wii i mean honestly whats wrong? you think its going to hurt your pride? dam fanboys they really need help.
I own a Wii. I hate the controller for games like this. You know they're going to have you flinging around like an idiot shooting the ball. It's good in games like Metroid,and Silent Hill, with the pointing aspect. But the motion controls are wack. They're laggy, and imprecise. I highly doubt they are going to give you the option to play it like Mario Bros, sideways with no nunchuck...but I could be wrong.
"How am I a fanboy? I own a Wii. I hate the controller for games like this. " "You know they're going to have you flinging around like an idiot shooting the ball." Even tho it's going to be like a NES when it comes to the controller.... (remote on the side makes a NES controller) - *hint hint* Since you own the wii you should know how the good games usually get many different control options. To suit the game being played. ie smash bros and mario kart gave you every controller including classic, nunchuck and even the damn gamecube controller!
then use the other control options idiot
Why do these Wii fanboys feel the need to condescend? The Wii is a love it / hate it kind of system. A gamer isn't a fanboy just because he has a preference.
you cant say the wii's got no games when you say this over and over agian "why cant this be on the PS360" "put it on a real systen" enjoy your generic fps, while i get the best of both worlds. Wii-Pc-PS3
A lot of people believe whatever they want, and it's really sad to watch. Time and time again, people b!tch that Wii Game X isn't on their system of choice... but refuse to admit that there are appealing, quality games on the platform. I'm really glad I own a Wii and I'm amped for all of the games to be released in the coming year. On Point: Great call embracing the old-school style. As much as I love the Wii, in the wrong hands, it is far from a 3D-Powerhouse. It has however proven, that it can be home to some crisp, beautiful 2D games. Aesthetically, this was definitely the right call. I Love it!
huh? the game looks cool. But then again, I am not to sob about it for too long. I really should of said that I LIKE sports games, but don't LOVE them. I think I'll survive either way. @ Dirt Hurts why are people attacking you? that makes no sense whatsoever? I happen to agree with him, but funny thing is, I DIDN'T buy a Wii for exactly those kinds of reasons.
You could have been the bigger man, you know. Congratulations on dragging yourself down to "their" level though!
I love this old school renassaince going on with Wii. 2-D games, old school sports games. This is cool.
but watch it sell for 40 maybe even 50...
i was thinking 19.95 or as you said 29.95 at the most but most likely it will sell for 50 bucks
i dont get why they would price it so high. its a good game in all i guess it will be but its not worth that much in a year with so many AAA games coming out. hopefully if the game doesn't sell ea wont blame the wii like capcom did.
the style is SICK! i looooved this on my genesis. still got it =D
I played so many hours of the original. I hope they get this one right!
Most of the wii owners are either really young or really old so I can't imagine this getting very many sales on that platform.
lapsed gamers are another notable market you completely ignored in that ignorant assumption. they specifically talk about them all the time at nintendo. NES/SNES era gamers are later 20s to 40s now. That is not young or old. It is mature. Oh wait, murdering hookers and paying for sex in a video game is mature, I'll go back to playing with bunnies.
And most of the people that make assumptions about Wii owners are complete idiots.
To the stupid people saying that they don't want to waggle on this, it's going to use classic controller as an option.
...all basketball games suck with the Wii controls. :/
