I’ve reported on rumors about this, and I’ve wished for it, but now it’s a reality. NBA Jam is headed to the PS3 and Xbox 360! But wait, there’s a major catch. The only way to get NBA Jam on your PS3 or 360 is to buy the full priced NBA Elite 11. Beat, weak, or sweet? I’m going with weak! I don’t want an NBA game that I have to pay $60 bones for just to get an arcade worthy NBA Jam game. It’s a stripped down NBA Jam game as well, with the Remix tour functionality only shipping with the Wii version.
I’m stuck between a rock and a hard place on this one. On one hand I’d punch a small child to get my hands on the new NBA Jam on the Xbox 360, but on the other I’d rather not spend $60 bones on NBA Elite 11. I’ll let you know which direction I take when the time comes to pull the trigger, and don’t worry, I won’t be knocking out any little children for it. You’ve been duped into buying NBA Elite 11…
