    Default NBA Elite '11 (Live) Will Come with Updated NBA Jam

    EA Sports announced today that NBA Elite 11, the new basketball sim that spawned from the once-great NBA Live franchise, will come bundled with a one-time download code for a new, high-definition version of NBA Jam for PlayStation 3 and Xbox 360.

    If you've seen any of our coverage of NBA Jam for Wii (winner of our Sports Game of the Show Award at E3), then this announcement should have you mighty excited to see what EA Sports can do with the added horsepower of HD consoles.

    The bundle of NBA Elite 11 and a download code for NBA Jam will hit store shelves on October 5 for Xbox 360 and PlayStation 3 for $59.99.

    Wii users concerned about their version being overshadowed should rest easy knowing that the Xbox 360 and PS3 downloads feature a scaled back set of game modes. For the $59.99 price tag of NBA Elite 11, players will be able to enjoy the Classic Campaign (a simple ladder-style tournament that pits you against the rest of the league) and an Exhibition Mode. The HD versions, however, will support online multiplayer over Xbox Live and PlayStation Network, a feature that has yet to be confirmed for Wii users.

    As fate would have it, I recently took a trip up to Vancouver to get my hands on an early build of NBA Jam and we'll have the first hands-on and direct-feed footage this Friday on IGN. For now, feast your eyes on our pair of screenshots and be sure to note the fantastic facial expressions.



    This is a hell of a lot cooler than having Micheal Jordan. I haven't really cared about NBA Live since '95 but this will make me think twice before blindly buying NBA 2k11.

    Damnit...I thought that you could buy this game seperately. I don't want to get NBA Elite ( or NBA Live 2011 )...I want to get NBA2k11. I really hope that we can download NBA Jam via PSN.

    I'm sure you'll be able to buy it separately also.

    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."

    That might be enough for me to buy it instead of renting it like I'd planned on doing.

    I wish they'd actually spend time make the games better rather than trying to use cheap gimmicks to get me to buy them.

    Sorry, I'm not wowed by Jordan in 2k11 or this.

    The last basketball game I was truly impressed by was NBA 2K7. I've played basketball games that have come out since that one, but I didn't have much fun with those. EA has progressively improved with their product while there haven't been many improvements with 2K. Hopefully this year one of them will stand out.
