this should be a free patch wth EA. garbage. they released a game with broken online play for fifty bucks then release a 'new one' less than a year later, man this better cost five dollars like the freaking iphone game does, which gets roster updates while my 360 one doesn't

The final slap in the face to those who bought the 360/PS3 retail version.

"On Fire" of course is referring to the rear ends of all of us who bought the disc version this fall

glad i only paid $20 for it. mark my words...this will be a $15 game when it comes out.

I don't mean to add insult to injury, but the writing was on the wall from the beginning regarding the disc version of this game. $60 isn't really gonna break me at all, but I'm glad I didn't purchase the game yet.

Just do yourselves a favor and stop expecting them to put out a roster update.*

*cue the "it's 2011, it's standard" comments.

Ridiculous, no way this should be anything but DLC...

man if they fix the AI I will pay 20 bucks easy. It was either easy or cheap, I'd love for it to be challenging without flat out cheating.

Well I bought the retail copy of Jam for $30 and just sold it on Amazon for $25, so that makes me feel a little better about it.

Still doesn't excuse the fact that they should've made this an update to the retail version instead of a new game.

The iPod/iPhone verson of NBA JAM is much better than the console version
