NBA Jam Gets Abandoned

By Kyle Durant

EA Sports is showing no love for this classic sports games’ remake. Many may have already known that when NBA Jam released with out of date rosters. Now with recent big trades in the NBA, fans and owners want to know where the roster update/patch is. EA responded with a cold slap of truth to all NBA Jam gamers.

“There have been a lot of questions about a title or roster update and we wanted to tackle this head on. Our priority for JAM on the XBOX 360 and PS3 was to deliver HD graphics and online play to round out the great gameplay that defines the franchise. For us to also include roster and title update possibilities, we would have sacrificed quality in those key areas and thus made the difficult decision not to include them.”

Not only is this a bummer but quite a mouthful of deceit. Why didn’t EA Sports announce they weren’t going to support the game post-release when it…released? (Players won’t even receive a patch if any errors within the game appear). Also, it may not be my position to say but…since when do patches/updates require graphical downgrades? Gamers love you NBA Jam; please don’t take out your vengeance on us.

Pretty much your above average gamer who plays games profusely and appreciates them even more. Been gaming since the NES but is in love with anything PlayStation. No I am not a typical fanboy...I appreciate each system for their strengths and recognize their weaknesses. I just love the PS brand. (Think along the lines as someone who likes to read but loves one author in particular). Ever since my time as #2 in the world at Resistance 2, I have taken video games much more seriously. Don't get me wrong, I am a laid back, fun guy to game with...but I always play to win.
