A portion of an interview conducted at Games Industry with Eidos product acquisition director, Ian Livingstone…
GI: Sounds like the line-up is looking pretty full. In terms of next-gen platforms, where do Eidos’ plans lie? Will you be supporting all three platforms equally?
IL: The beauty about being an independent publisher is that you can support any platform, of course, and we are going to support all three. It’s quite apparent that it’s going to be a much closer race this time around. Sony has had a recent history of being the clear winner, and I don’t think anybody believes that’s going to be the case this time.
It’s going to be a much closer race and significantly, I think Nintendo, with the Wii console, is going to be right back up in the thick of it. It’s quite interesting that they’ve decided not to go head-to-head with Microsoft and Sony, with the high quality interactive cinematic action adventure games; they’ve gone for gameplay over graphics instead. I think that’s quite an interesting move and it could be very successful for them.
With Eidos throwing the GBA, DS, and Cube more support as of lately, I hope to see a good relationship with the company on the Wii. Click here for the full article.
