EA to support all three motion-sensing technologies

Posted on Friday, Aug 07 2009 @ 06:33 CEST by Thomas De Maesschalck
EA's CEO said the company will support both Microsoft Natal and Sony's PS3 motion-sensing game controller:
“I would lump [Microsoft Natal] up with what is going on with Sony, with their new motion-based controller. We are really positive on both. Our view is that motion-based gaming is something that is both going to drive installed base, drive interest, and drive growth. So, we are positive overall and we are planning to support both. We have not yet announced our plans to do so, but we shall do so at the right time frame for that, which is likely to be early to mid-2010,” said John Riccitiello, chief executive officer of Electronic Arts, in a conference call with financial analysts

Although the chief exec of Electronic Arts did not reveal any concrete plans, it is highly likely that games, which take advantage of Microsoft Natal, will also take advantage of Sony’s motion-sensing device and vice versa.
