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.

Grin’s Bo Andersson has said that the Swedish developer has started work on three new projects.
The firm will talk to publishers about the games next week at GDC, Andersson said.
He said the meetings are “more to do with what we will work on in 2011 and 2012″.
“One of the things we will have to gauge is when the next generation will kick off,” he said.
“I think the financial situation has delayed the start of the next generation. I’m hoping it will start late 2012 at the earliest or early 2013.”
Grin’s Wanted: Weapons of Fate is due out next week, and the company has Bionic Commando and Terminator Salvation in the works.

Next-Gen’s May NPD analysis is as exhaustive as ever, but we can’t help feeling the graphs have their sparkle this month. Still, there are enough facts here to make you cry, so you have to read. Just to prove you can.

According to this Next-Gen piece, February 2003 was the best ever month for average review scores, and February has seen the highest review scores on average for the past six years.
According to the site:
- February turns out to have the best average review scores at 70.6%.
- August is a closer runner-up at 70.2%
- May through July are rotten, with averages from 65.0% up to 66.2%.
- December – unsurprisingly – is the absolute worst, with a stinky 64.1%
Nice piece, but there are no graphs, only a coloured chart. Matt Matthews, the guy that puts these stats features together for Next-Gen has clearly peaked, being out-graphed by a Neogaf poster last month, of all things.
New NPD data’s due this week, Matt. If we don’t get the best graphs ever, we’re going to be tagging your analysis as “scrap heap”.
