More NBA Jam Goodness
When talking about the Nintendo Wii's lineup this holiday season, I keep forgetting about NBA Jam. I'm not sure why that is, because the videos coming from E3 were fantastic. Perhaps it's my overall disappointment with EA Sports on the Wii - aside from Tiger Woods, it's shamefully abysmal. And perhaps it's the news that Jam has been rated for PS3 and Xbox 360. I can't help but think that will depress sales.
So perhaps I'm just feeling a bit edgy without cause. Jam looks spectacular so far, and it's set to fill a very large void in the Wii's library. Can you believe that there are practically no quality sports games on the Wii platform? What madness is this?!
EA should be aggressive with promoting NBA Jam. This is an all-time classic with enormous love and devotion. Give us the tournaments at the Mall of America rotunda like they do for the yearly Madden updates, and you'll pack the place solid. Please treat the Wii with some respect for once.
