I didn't realize EA had grabbed this IP from when Midway was crashing and burning and selling off all its assets.

NBA Street Vol. 2 is still the best arcade basketball game, that's the bar this game has to leap.

Why exactly are people excited? I remember this franchise already having a failed revival. Also the way that NFL Blitz was revived doesn't give me much hope. Of course, if it was like NBA Showtime...then we might be talking. :D

NBA Jam seems like an interesting IP to bring back. Here's hoping the game is actually good.
That's always the worry, isn't it? Too many great old IPs pissed upon in the last few years.
 

yes we can

you've changed things. forever!


I say I am upset because this is a lame decision by EA. Put it on all consoles. I am sure all of you would want midways old IP's on your console right now. I don't need a graphics update just because I own a PS3/ x360. I just want those games on my HDD.

If they get away from making it 5v5 and get back to the 2v2 roots (hell, I'd be fine with 3v3, but beyond that is just wrong) it might do well.

The NBA Jam game on PS2 and XBOX could have been better, but I still found it quite enjoyable. If nothing else, it had the original announcer, BOOMSHAKALAKA!

Came in for this, am pleased.

Hopefully you can unlock all of the mascots like you could in the original game. I think this has the potential to be a sleeper hit. I remember staying up for hours playing the SNES iteration.

Time to start working on the NBA JAM! 2010 tournament.

That's because it was Acclaim doing the reviving.
