NBA Jam is now a multi-platform title.
NBA Jam is no longer a Wii-exclusive in any way, shape, or form. The version that is hitting Xbox 360 and PlayStation 3, which was originally supposed to be a downloadable version that came free with the now-delayed NBA Elite 11, will have as much of the content of the Wii version as the developers can pack into it.
"I'll tell you, we're doing everything in our power to get as much on there as possible. I mean, we had online up. It was a really basic online feature set. We're trying to blow that out. And then you get Remix. We're trying to throw it all in there," said Creative Director Trey Smith on Toronto FAN 590's Got Game.
The decision to make this retail release of NBA Jam on Xbox 360 and PlayStation 3 caught Smith's team at EA Canada off guard. The team is currently "shuffling to get everything together," according to Smith.
"And its really up to you [which version you buy]," Smith said. "If you want to hang out with your friends and use gesture controls, you got it on the Wii. If you want to go online and you want that HD experience, you go on the PS3/360."
