Are there technical things I can’t do on PS3? Honestly, no. The limitation is much more about the ideas we have. When you look at the past, you realised that the technology evolved must faster than the concepts we rely on. As an industry we have pretty much have been building the same games for fifty years, despite the platforms changing.” – Quantic Dream’s David Cage to Develop.

“I’m a level artist so for me, it’s all about the visual quality. I want more creative freedom and more great graphics, that’s what really makes me want to create games. I’m looking for like real-life animations. It’s like pushing the limit again and again, creating bigger and greater stuff.

A recent EA job listing uncovered by Internet super sleuth Superannuation has “next-gen” and “Boom Blox” written all over it. Literally!
“Our last two titles were Wii-based, but our next titles will be for the next generation,” says a listing by EA’s Boom Blox team.
Previous listings have searched for the conspicuous mix of PS3 rendering expertise and familiarity with motion controls, among other things.
Top to it all off, EA has hinted at a next-gen iteration of Boom Blox in the past.
We feel like we just snooped around the house and took an early peek at our Christmas presents. Feigning surprise when EA finally blows the lid off this project won’t be easy.
