EA reportedly resurrecting NBA Jam for Wii

SNES/MegaDrive favourite returning for next-gen outing?

ESPN is reporting that NBA Jam, the popular early 90's arcade basketball franchise, has been rebounded into the hands of EA Sports, with the series set to return to the Nintendo Wii. Fans of the original games will be pleased to know that series creator Mark Turmell has joined EA Sports' roster, and will have a consulting role for the upcoming game.

No other details have been released regarding the new NBA Jam, though ESPN expects EA to have more details later in the month. We've sent word out to EA and will update the article if we hear back regarding the subject. If this turns out to be true, it could be the final nail in the coffin for EA's arcade-style NBA Street franchise.

MSI GS75

As the Maserati or BMW of laptops, it would fit perfectly in the hands of a professional needing firepower under the hood, sophistication and class on the surface, and gaming prowess (sports mode if you will) in between.

This small mobile printer is exactly what I need for invoicing and other jobs such as sending fellow tradesman details or step-by-step instructions that I can easily print off from my phone or the Web.
