NBA Jam dunking Xbox 360, PS3 - Report

German ratings board reveals arcade basketball game won't be Wii-exclusive.


NBA Jam (2010)

Electronic Arts is reaching into history this holiday, releasing the over-the-top hardwood NBA Jam for the Nintendo Wii. However, if a German software ratings board is to be believed, the slam-dunk-centric arcade game will also grace the PlayStation 3 and Xbox 360.

NBA Jam might not be playing favorites with Nintendo.

The news comes from listings posted on the Unterhaltungssoftware Selbstkontrolle (USK), a self-regulating body that monitors the software industry in Germany. The listings pin NBA Jam for release on high-def consoles but provide no further specifics on the topic.

Electronic Arts hasn't officially mentioned the title's existence for the Xbox 360 or PS3, and as of press time, EA has not responded to GameSpot's request for comment on the matter.

That said, the arrival of NBA Jam for the 360 and PS3 wouldn't be all too surprising. In February, an EA Canada software engineer listed "NBA Jam for Wii, Xbox 360, PS3" on her LinkedIn account. She then speedily removed the mention of Xbox 360 and PS3 from the list.

NBA Jam is currently in development at EA Canada and is slated for an October 5 release for the Wii. For more on the game, check out GameSpot's E3 2010 floor check-in with EA Sports (embedded below) and a hands-on preview.
