Why? He's obviously seen whatever they're working on. He's the head of one of the biggesst third party publishers on the planet.

Well of course he's seen them, I'd expect most big publishers have seen them, it'd be very worrying if they haven't. Unless there wouldn't be a next gen until 2014-2015 :lol: and there's no chance of current gen dragging on for that long.

I should bloody well hope so, if these things are coming out for crimbo next year i'd hope they've spent the last 9 months developing for them.

If you want to leave comments like that, do it on your match.com web page, pervert.
Some say he's half man, half fish. Others say its more of a 70/30 split. Whatever the percentage, he's one fishy bastard.

yeah of course he has seen the dev kits EA are bound to have them they usually have a launch tile of some kind, but he may have also seen diagrams or a mock up of what he actual systems are going to look like as well after all it's not like he's low down on the industry chain.

Since EA is investing $80 million in next-gen consoles, Sony and MS must have (reluctantly) let him at least take a peek.

I hope he was alluding to that, tbh. I'm more interested, not in the hardware, but rather the I/O of the consoles. Will the 720 go mad for Kinect 2? And will the PS4 feature a stream-only service?

Wrong the sky isn't blue, I could go into 'light scattering' and how we perceive the sky to change colour at differing times of the day but I imagine I'm already wasting my time.
