EA Wants To Join The Revolution

Posted by Anthony Dickens

Nintendo continue to impress developers with their unique new controller. EA seem to be convinced.

Third party support is growing for Nintendo. This area of the market is vital to the success of the new console, Nintendo have failed to generate third party interest in past outings. Enter Reggie, the big cheese was in action once again, this time he was speaking at the 33rd Annual UBS Global Media Conference in New York. The Reg revealed that third parties are also excited for the company's upcoming gaming Revolution.

Fils-Aime quoted EA as saying: "It's a brilliant controller, and as usual we can credit Nintendo with being innovative and neat and fresh and fun. They continue to pioneer in our industry…they make some of the best games in the industry…and we look forward to partnering with them."

Although we find a large slice of EA's games pretty mediocore, we respect that they are a huge player in the industry. EA haven't announced any games for Revolution as yet, but they certainly seem very interested. Thats all we can ask for at this stage. The first EA-developed Revolution titles are expected to be announced at E3 in May.

Here is to hoping that EA spend longer developing their games and make some specific to the revolution. No ports please.

True, EA do have a tendancy of making a big name and keeping the core the same whilst just changing the looks.
They have underacheived this Christmas period and that is due to them rushing their games. I hope they learn and get some new ideas with more effort contributed.
Tiger Woods Street anyone?
