A prototype of NBA Jam for the PlayStation 2.


  • An NTSC-U preview build dated a month and a half before the final.
  • Main menus don't seem to be visible under normal means whilst using PCSX2. This is an emulation issue and some have found that changing Speedhacks -> EE Cyclerate to 1 can fix the issues.
  • No title screen and some missing intro sequences.
  • Different Acclaim logo screen.
  • Loading screen differs.
  • The text "NBA JAM - ALPHA 07-10-03" appears in the lower-left corner throughout gameplay.
  • Title music uses short loop of Kurtis Blow's "Basketball".
  • Only Exhibition and Legends Tournament modes are selectable.
  • Main menu layout is reversed (text on right).
  • Team and Player Select images have black backgrounds.
  • Code input screen differs.
  • Graphics not finalized.
  • Miscellaneous Notes:
    • Game is emulatable (in PCSX2): Yes (as of March 17, 2021).
    • Game contains dongle protection: No.
