EA Sports Decides They’ll Provide Advertised Roster Updates for NBA Jam: On Fire Edition

As noted yet again in the article from earlier today EA Sports had notably been avoiding the topic of roster updates for NBA Jam: On Fire Edition since first announcing it as a feature way back in July. At all costs they ignored consumer and media inquiries into the matter. It seemed as though they hoped the topic would fade out of relevance and thus refused to respond to requests for comment not just from here but other prominent media outlets including Kotaku.

Putting the pressure on the company over the last month finally paid off as just now they have chosen to inform Kotaku that roster updates will be coming for the digital-download title. Though the statement is vague and offers no apologies or prospective time frame at least now the company has determined they need to deliver on an advertised feature that may have been simply swept under the rug without the spotlight being placed on them for the failure to provide it.

    Being less of a basketball fan and more solely of an NBA Jam fan, this has zero effect on my personal enjoyment but I’m glad to see EA is finally addressing the issue and is going to deliver on what they promised.

    So, now developer’s need time to “decide” whether to deliver on features that were promised as incentive to purchase the game in the first place…awesome.

      Pretty sad…its clear that they weren’t going to. Even the statement comes across somewhat condescending and non-specific, like they’ve been bothered by people asking for what they were promised would come.

        Could’ve waited to purchase the game today and saved $5 besides. People who buy today on the PSN network get it for $10 and people (like me) who bought it on the 1st day haven’t received anything they won’t get.

          That’s always the chance you take when buying a game day one, be it a digital or retail game.

    I don’t know how you can advertise something and not give it. I should be able to sue. Thats like ordering a washing machine and getting a bucket of water. On another EA bullshit note. How about that pre game QB comparing that they promised. It was supposed to be different every time you played. All we get is the same play maker talked about each game, players running out of tunnels without even getting their names called, and getting to hear HOW IMPORTANT HOME FIELD ADVANTAGE…

    Exactly why I hate, and will always hate, EA. First, they take away my enjoyment of football games, then they give us as consumers shitty service and over charged prices on all of their titles. EA stopped using lube along time ago while they screwed us consumers.

    Well done Pasta and Kotaku.

    And EA wonders why their stock price is close to 2k’s despite the massive disparity that should exist?  This and other examples like this – why.

  • Hungryandrew

    I can t believe this game is still not available in France, for an unknow reason, EA is driving me mad, since NFL blitz is heading the same way (evrywhere in the world but not in France) !!!
