NBA Elite 11 Comes With Free NBA Jam
As was the case with other recent EA releases, new copies of NBA Elite 11 will come with exclusive content. Each copy will contain a one-time download code to grab NBA Jam for the PS3 and Xbox 360.
The downloadable NBA Jam has three different game modes: Play Now, Classic Campaign, and Online. EA notes in the press release that NBA Jam won eight awards at this year's E3. This nugget of information suggests that this is a port of the new Wii version rather than the old arcade game. The Wii version is itself a remake of the old arcade version so I guess this is a small distinction.
If you recall, the ESRB kind of spoiled this surprise by announcing the ratings for a 360/PS3 NBA Jam last week. Still, I imagine most people thought the game would be released through Xbox Live Arcade or PSN rather than being a freebie. Maybe EA will put it on sale through these networks after Elite's release?
