EA To Drop 30 On The PS3
It's more Gamer's Day talk, and this time, we find out that mega-publisher EA is currently developing over 30 games for the PS3, with plans to release 8-10 titles for Sony's next-gen console by late March 2007.
For launch, EA is supporting the PS3 with Madden NFL '07, Need for Speed: Carbon, and Tiger Woods PGA Tour '07. For the immediate future following launch, EA is working on Skate, Army of Two, Medal of Honor: Airborne, NBA Street, Battlefield: Bad Company, Burnout 5, and the recently announced Def Jam: Icon.
EA has also confirmed they're creating their games to take advantage of the PS3's variety of features, such as the motion-sensing Sixaxis controller and, of course, the console's powerful Cell processor.
"Each game has been custom designed to leverage the hardware power of the PlayStation 3 and serve as a launch pad for EA's next generation of HD gaming," said EA Studios president Paul Lee. "This is only the beginning. In the months and years to come, developers will take greater advantage of the PlayStation 3's cell processors and blu-ray storage capacity to create games of stunning depth and texture."
