EA Has More Than 30 PS3 Games In Development.
Electronic Arts is currently developing more than 30 games for the PlayStation 3, and plans to release eight to ten titles for the new console by late March, the company announced today.
The gaming giant will support the PS3 launch with titles like Madden NFL 07, Need for Speed Carbon, and Tiger Woods PGA Tour 07. The company's roster beyond launch includes new entries Skate and Army of Two, as well as franchise returns such as Medal of Honor Airborne, NBA Street, Battlefield: Bad Company, Burnout 5, and Def Jam: Icon.
EA is adapting titles to the PS3's particular features, such as the motion-sensing SIXAXIS controller and the system'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".
