I was excited to hear that EA would be releasing an updated version of the classic arcade game to consoles, but there was significant confusion surrounding its release. You may remember that NBA Jam was supposed to be released in a package with NBA Elite 11, but then got its own retail release, with added features, at $49.99 after Elite was cancelled. A disk-based version of NBA Jam at that price point wasn’t what I was hoping for. Luckily, EA took the ball to the hoop with their new edition of NBA Jam.
