EA has "maxed out" the Xbox 360

maxed_out_265x400Speaking to OXM at E3 last week, SVP of EA Games Europe Patrick Soderlund, stated that the Xbox 360 has been “maxed out.” I’m not entirely sure what he means by that, but I’d assume he’s referring to what EA can do with the console’s hardware. On the flip side, Soderlund said that EA has yet to “max out” the PS3. He’s a bit of a waffler, though.

“I like the Natal,” he says. “That’s cool. It’s an interesting device, so I’m truly impressed by Xbox. It’s my personal favourite console… I think Microsoft is on a roll right now. They’re doing really well. If I was Sony, I would have a headache, to be honest.”

And then he sort of changes his mind.

“Sony has a lot of good games this year. If you go to their booth, there’s a very consistent, high quality product line-up and that will help them. I do think that we’ll see developers inside the organisation getting to understand the PS3 better and I think that we’re getting more power out of PS3 right now… I think that we’ve maxed out the 360 but we haven’t maxed out the PS3.”
