  • NBA Jam: On Fire Edition is only backwards compatible sports game on Xbox One
    Posted November 9th, 2015 at 9:00 am 26 Comments
    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...

    A new free-to-play mobile game arrived today carrying with it the NBA license. NBA All Net is card-based which has become the popular route for many mobile offerings to take as of late. Players can take part in various games where they can relive historic career highlights of NBA players, survive the Road to Glory, battle their way through tournaments, take part in competitive leagues or compete in Ranked Matches and rise to the top of seasonal Leaderboards. ♦A roster of over 500 NBA pla...
  • EA Sports Hopes To Make College Football and Basketball Games in the Future
    Posted June 19th, 2014 at 5:15 pm 24 Comments
    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
    Posted February 12th, 2014 at 9:30 am 10 Comments
    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
    Posted April 8th, 2013 at 5:15 pm 12 Comments
    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
    Posted April 14th, 2012 at 1:30 pm 7 Comments
    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 ...
  • NBA Jam: On Fire Edition Finally Gets Its First Roster Update
    Posted January 31st, 2012 at 1:45 pm 10 Comments
    It took until practically a third of the NBA season was complete, and pressure from outside sources, but EA Sports has finally met their obligation to provide at least one roster update for NBA Jam: On Fire Edition after advertising it as a feature. An update arrived today and can be grabbed by going to the 'Online Arena' section of the game. Don't expect much out of this roster update though. Players have been moved around - the Chris Paul and Blake Griffin tandem is now available - but ...
  • EA Sports Decides They’ll Provide Advertised Roster Updates for NBA Jam: On Fire Edition
    Posted January 17th, 2012 at 12:45 pm 14 Comments
    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 t...
