This is maybe the most expensive Sony PS3 game out there.
The recent sales are:
You will ask why a sports game is so expensive? Well, it has been cancelled. Never saw the light of day. Or… maybe people thought so for some time… But it appears that some copies actually reached the stores. The numbers are rumored but i think it’s more then 10 copies for sure.
Here’s some info from the wiki:
A release of the game for the PlayStation 3 and Xbox 360 was scheduled for October 5, 2010, but was delayed until March 31, 2011 due to “concerns about gameplay polish”.The cancellation for these versions was officially announced on November 2, 2010 and development of the franchise was moved from EA’s Black Box studio to its Florida-based Tiburon studio. EA instead released free DLC for NBA Live 10, including free roster updates for the 2010–11 NBA season and free daily Dynamic DNA updates, for the entire 2010-2011 NBA Season. Previously, a download code for NBA Jamwas to be included with copies of Xbox 360 and PS3 versions of NBA Elite 11, but NBA Jam was subsequently released as a standalone game for both systems and the Wii.
Development and cancellation
The developers of the Xbox 360 and PlayStation 3 versions aimed to completely change the game’s control system, but were pressed for time with an eighteen month development cycle. A demo was released while the game was being finalized. The demo was plagued with glitches that were much publicized, including one involving a player, most famously Andrew Bynum in a YouTube video, stuck in the middle of the court in the model’s bind pose (the default pose used to model the character, before any animation is applied). Another glitch that was noticed in NBA Elite 11 involved Chicago Bulls Luol Deng. Deng had a “hotspot” from the left baseline where he almost never missed from. Developers were aware of an animation bug, but intended to fix it before release. After internal review of the game, EA found the product to be unsatisfactory and cancelled the game.
