Boooooooom-shaka-laka! EA Sports is bringing back the classic, most beloved arcade basketball game ever NBA JAM exclusively for the Nintendo Wii in 2010. Originally made by Midway back in 1993 for video arcades, NBA JAM was a humongous hit, with exciting, over-the-top, cartoony 2-on-2 basketball action that defied both traditional basketball rules as well as the laws of gravity and physics. It was the basketball game for people who didn't like or even know how to play basketball. And it even.
