NBA Jam is a basketball video game developed and published by EA Canada. It was released on October 5, 2010, as the latest installment in the NBA Jam video game franchise.  Initially, the game was intended to be a full retail release for the Wii, with the PlayStation 3 and Xbox 360 versions available for download via a coupon with the purchase of NBA Elite 11. However, on September 28, 2010, EA announced that Elite would be delayed.  On November 17, 2010, the PS3 and Xbox 360 versions were released as stand-alone titles.  The game has a distinct visual style, employing 3D models with high-resolution photographs for each player’s head. Several elements from the original games, such as the outrageous slam dunks and the ball catching fire, return.   Mark Turmell, the creator of the original NBA Jam, is serving as a consultant.  The original NBA Jam announcer, Tim Kitzrow, returns, re-recording the lines from previous NBA Jam titles. As of April 7, 2010, all NBA rosters are current. The iOS version of the game is also available for OS X via the Mac App Store, making it the game’s only official computer version.
