NBA Jam PS3/360 official, included in every copy of NBA Elite 11

It’s official: NBA Jam is coming to PS3 and 360. Yay! Bad news: there’s no PSN/Xbox Live Arcade release planned.

Instead, the only way to get the game is if you buy NBA Elite 11 for PS3 and 360. And even then, EA’s Jordan Edelstein admits that it won’t be the full Jam experience.

“We’re still holding back the Remix Tour for the Wii consumer, and that’s about 20 hours of gameplay,” Edelstein told ESPN.

“But for the PS3 and 360, we want people to try ‘Elite’. We feel like ‘NBA Elite 11′ is a great product and we want people to give it a chance and see all the changes we’re making. So as a way to say thanks to these people, we are going to let them experience ‘Jam’. It’s not the full product, but it’s a good portion of it.”

And to reiterate: “We’re not selling ‘Jam’ on PSN or Xbox Live. If you still want the full product, the full experience is on the Wii, but if you pick up ‘Elite’, you’re still getting a good taste of it, especially with the inclusion of online play.”

And there you go.

Thanks, Kotaku.

    This is baffling to say the least.

    ‘if you want the full product, the full experience is on Wii’

    That’s fantastic for the many 360/PS3 gamers who don’t own one and most likely never will.

    Hey yo Mr Developer. I’m just not gonna bother yo. You cheeky fucking cunt. I’ll wait until you inevitably bring it out on PSN/XBLA anyway, because I’ve been lied to before.
