EA plan to support motion control technology

Both PS3 and Xbox 360 flavours...

Speaking as EA unveiled their latest financial results, boss-man John Riccitiello confirmed that the publisher is planning to support both Microsoft's Natal and Sony's motion controller from the get-go.

The firm is apparently optimistic about the opportunities presented by the rival Xbox 360 and PS3 technologies; the firm hopeful of announcing new games for the platforms in 2010.

"Our view is that motion-based gaming is something that is both going to drive install base, drive interest and drive growth. We're positive overall," VG247 quote the exec as revealing.

"We're planning to support both. We haven't yet announced our plans to do so, but we shall do so in the right time-frame for that, which is likely to be early-to mid-2010."

The PS3's motion control technology is expected out in the spring, while Microsoft's Natal could hit town in winter 2010.
