    With very little fanfare or promotion the launch of 3on3 FreeStyle on PlayStation 4 had been advertised by publisher JoyCity to happen at some point in May. Up until yesterday the official website for the game continued to advertise its release for the month despite how that clearly wasn't going to end up happening. Today however a new plan for the game was revealed. The unlicensed multiplayer street basketball game has been delayed and will be coming at some as-of-yet unspecified point ...

    On Monday Microsoft revealed the list of backwards compatible 360 titles for Xbox One. As expected there was very little representation from the sports genre with only NBA Jam: On Fire Edition included. Today the backwards compatibility has been activated along with the significant "New Xbox One Experience" console update. Other features introduced with the update include a new home screen, guide, community section and store, plus avatars, the ability to remap buttons on the controller, ...

    Today Microsoft revealed the initial list of games receiving backwards compatibility on Xbox One when the functionality launches for the system on Thursday. As expected the sports gaming genre has little representation with only one game in the mix. NBA Jam: On Fire Edition will be available with the first batch of games. Originally released November 2011, OFE was a $15 downloadable-only title. It was fairly well received, with 85/81 on Metacritic, but also followed only a year after the...

    In testimony earlier this week in the Ed O'Bannon case vs the NCAA, an Electronic Arts representative expressed the desire the company has to develop college-based video games in the future. Joel Linzner, EVP of Business & Legal, stated EA would be "very interested in acquiring the rights" of players to use in the games. Of course this would require the NCAA to remove most if not all restrictions on the "amateur" status of athletes which is what the class action suit is attempting to...
  • EA Sports Teasing Another NBA Jam

    A tweet today from the the EA Sports NBA Jam account suggests that a new game is in development and could release later this year. The account had been dormant for almost two years until it awoke on Sunday. Remember that last year EA was play-testing what was said to be a new concept for an NBA game so this could be it. (more…)...
  • EA Sports Working on Second NBA Game

    A new survey advertising a play-session later this week with a conceptually new NBA game at EA Canada has been discovered by NLSC. Those in the Vancouver area who are interested in taking part are asked to complete the survey which includes questions gauging experience with sports video games and level of sports fandom in general. A "new concept" implies something unorthodox and an arcade-style game to counteract NBA 2K14 with the arrival of the new consoles would make more sense than goi...
  • NBA Jam: On Fire Edition Gets Another Roster Update; This Time Adds Players

    After being pressured a great deal EA Sports finally provided a roster update for NBA Jam: On Fire Edition at the end of January. That satisfied the requirement given it was a prominently advertised feature and to an extent even met the realistic expectations for the title making another update - which has just arrived - a pleasant surprise. The first update only moved players around and didn't add any rookies or others who had increased their relevance enough to include on the limited ...
