simoniker writes "Electronic Arts has officially revealed that it's working on a standalone version of its Madden football franchise for Nintendo Revolution, made by a new Revolution-specific internal studio within Electronic Arts Canada. EA's John Schappert explained the gameplay: 'You grab the controller, and you pull it up. And you snap the ball, without pushing a button. To throw, you take your hand and you gesture a throw motion. ... I don't think a winning approach on the Revolution is to port games to it, and I don't think you'll see us taking that approach. I think that approach will yield inferior software for the Revolution, and I don't think publishers will be rewarded for that.'"
That's the thing about people who think they hate computers. What they
really hate is lousy programmers.
