EA has done the unthinkable. They just canceled an iteration of a yearly franchise. That's right, after being delayed, NBA Elite 11 will not be hitting retail shelves this year.
EA will however be releasing NBA Jam. I think that may be a suitable substitute, if it is handled properly. NBA Jam will be released November 17th, 2010.
Oh man, John Riccitiello must be drinking Pepto-Bismol on the rocks instead of that fine A.W. Hirsch Bourbon.
