EA has "maxed out" 360, but not PS3

Exec says Xbox is still his favourite, though.

EA exec Patrick Soderlund has said there's still more power to be extracted from the PS3 - while the Xbox 360 is "maxed out".

"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," he told Official Xbox Magazine, speaking at E3 last week.

"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."

Soderlund also had nice things to say about Microsoft though, particularly with regard to their latest techno-baby. "I like the Natal. That's cool. It's an interesting device, so I'm truly impressed by Xbox. It's my personal favourite console," he stated.

"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."
