EA revealed today that NBA Jam will hit the PS3 and Xbox 360 on November 17th. Unlike the Wii version, the PS3/360 editions will feature online multiplayer.

Upon launch, gamers will be able to play Classic 2-on-2 matches online with results being tracked by leaderboards. In December, a title update will add arcade modes like Backboard Smash, Domination Free-for-All, Elimination, and 21. An Online Progression feature will allow players to level up via challenges and in doing so unlock rewards.

EA originally planned to offer NBA Jam as a bonus with new copies for NBA Elite 11. However, they decided to make Jam a standalone release after they delayed Elite to next year. It seemed weird to throw Jam in with another game as an after-thought, anyway. This is the remake of a hugely popular retro game and could sell really well for EA now that it's getting hyped up on its own.
