Harvey Elliott, head of EA Bright Light studio, Guildford, said at Shrine Week in London that he wasn’t ruling out the idea of Boom Blox coming to other formats beside Wii.

“I wouldn’t rule anything out, never say never,” said Elliott to Videogamer.

“Why I think Boom Blox has really worked is that it captured the spirit of the Wii. It’s about the motion control, it’s about throwing a ball or throwing an object.

“I can’t imagine that on other devices at the moment. There’s something very physical about it. Right now I’m really proud that it’s stayed focused on the Wii and I think it’s the right thing. Who knows for the future.”

We’re thinking the success of Sony Motion control and Natal would be the deciding factor in this one.
