EA’s NBA Jam Reboot Launches in October

by Travis Harvey | September 9, 2010

Easily the best basketball game that has ever graced the video game industry is NBA Jam.  Released in 1993 on the SNES and Sega Genesis, Midway combined just the right amount of reality with fantasy to mold what is one of the few sports games I can actually get behind.  Hotspots, crazy dunks, and the paparazzi crowd made NBA Jam famous for what it is.  EA’s been working overtime to ensure there’s enough of the classic to keep their reboot true to its roots.  Can they succeed?  Let’s hope they don’t drop a $60 bomb on us.  We’ll find out October 5th.

Are you eyeing up NBA Jam?  Did you play the original?  Let us know down below.
