I dunno what a "Fifnir" knight is, but damn is he scary-lookin'. And his game... it's pretty damn good too.

FEATURED VOXPOP oblivion437 Update: I was unfortunately not aware of Shamus Young's severe criticism of Fallout 3 available here to link in the original piece and I regret that.  It dovetails rather nicely with what I've written and it's much better executed than my piece.  I strongly recommend anyone...

EA Wary of Long-Term Vita, 3DS Support

Posted on Tuesday, July 1 @ 09:00:00 Eastern by Alex_Osborn


Electronic Arts COO Peter Moore doesn't want to place too much stock in dedicated handhelds like Nintendo's 3DS and Sony's PlayStation Vita. At this point, it's mostly about phones and tablets for the publisher when it comes to portable gaming.

"We were supportive of both of those platforms," Moore said of Vita and 3DS in an interview with GamesIndustry. "But then you've got finite resources and you've got teams that say, 'We really think that two or three years from now, these are the platforms that people are going to be consuming games on.' And you look at the quality of what you can do on phones and tablets...

"Sometimes strategy is not about what you do but what you don't do, and you have to make some hard calls when you've got only so many people. To my point, we've got to be planning for FY 17 and 18. Do you think the Vita and 3DS are going to be around in some shape or fashion by then on a scale level?"

Do you agree with Moore's sentiment? Will dedicated gaming hardware inevitably be a thing of the past? While Sony may not make a successor to Vita, I'm sure we'll see something from Nintendo after 3DS—unless, of course, the company decides to go the hybrid console route.
