EA makes motion-control promise

Project Natal and Motion Control games for 2010

Secure remote control for conventional and virtual desktops

Videogame publisher Electronic Arts (EA) has committed itself to releasing titles for both Sony’s and Microsoft’s recently demoed motion-controlled gaming peripherals.

John Riccitiello, EA’s CEO, said during a recent conference call that the firm’s “really positive on both” the PS3’s Motion Control and Xbox 360’s Project Natal.

EA’s yet to reveal the juicy details of any Project Natal or Motion Control videogames under consideration at its HQ, but Riccitiello said that it plans to announce such details in “early-to-mid-2010”.

“Our view is that motion-based gaming is something that is both going to drive install base, drive interest and drive growth”, Riccitiello added.

Launch dates for Project Natal and Motion Control haven’t been announced, yet, but it’s widely expected that both peripherals will appear towards the end of next year. ®
