EA has hinted that NBA Jam will not remain exclusive to owners of NBA Elite 11, but be offered as a separate download on PlayStation Network and Xbox Live Arcade somewhere down the line.
"EA is making no further announcements at this stage," a spokesperson teased Eurogamer this morning.
The comment follows the announcement of a free NBA Jam downoad code for those who buy NBA Elite 11 this October on PS3 or Xbox 360.
Specifically, you'll have access to three NBA Jam modes: Play Now, Classic Campaign and Online. EA's press release called this an "unprecedented value add" to the NBA Elite 11 package.
NBA Jam is being released as a Wii title this October. Literally big-headed basketball stars will play two-on-two, pulling-off incredible slam-dunks and sprouting flames after successful point-scoring tallies.
NBA Elite 11 will be released on 5th October in the US and presumably in Europe soon after.
