It looks like somebody at EA Sports may have been listening when I implored EA Canada to bring NBA Jam to the PlayStation 3 and Xbox 360 along with the Wii. The publisher has always spoken of the game as a Wii exclusive, but the LinkedIn profile of Andrea Schiel, a software engineer at EA Canada, suggests otherwise: in her résumé, she lists NBA Jam for the "Wii, XBox 360, PS 3 [sic]" as one of the games that she has worked on.

This isn't a huge surprise, since the decision to make the game a Wii exclusive in the first place seemed curious, but it's still heartening to see this semi-confirmation of an HD console version of NBA Jam. I sure hope it's a confirmation, anyway. We'll update this post with any comment we receive from EA.

[Update: Schiel's LinkedIn page now lists NBA Jam as only having a Wii version. There's subterfuge afoot!]

See the ugly side of football in Dirty Sexy Soccer

Football sure has its ugly side, whether it's match fixing, hooliganism, and John Terry's wandering hands. Football Manager, for all its accuracy, never takes into account any of these things, but Dirty Sexy Soccer does. It'...more
