Speaking in an interview with MCV, EA Europe head Jens Uwe Intat has confirmed the company will have games good to go for the launches of both the PlayStation Motion Controller and Project Natal.

“Our studios are working with the first parties to create some interesting games for those controllers. We can expand the audience for an existing game, but it’s also a good time to come up with brand new ideas and way to play,” Intat said.

“We’re working on the specifics of our plans, but we will have games available that work with both controllers at launch.”

He also said he sees both Natal and the PSMC, apparently codenamed Gem, to “expand the audience even further than Wii and the Wii Remote Controller.”

In the same interview, which was first published in the magazine edition of MCV last week, Intat said the FIFA series was “beating the heck out of” Pro Evolution Soccer

Project Natal

  • Dance Central almost had its own hardware

    It’s hard to imagine that Dance Central was in development before Kinect was even announced, but Harmonix is now saying that the game was slated to have its own peripheral before Project Natal hit the scene.

  • Toulouse: Kinect is the "perfect name"

    Microsoft’s director of policy and enforcement for Xbox Live  Stephen Toulouse has said that he believes Kinect is the perfect name for the motion device previously known as Project Natal.
