EA Sports Active eyes Natal, PS3 wand?

But Wii Vitality Sensor not so appealing.

EA's keen to expand hit Wii exercise game EA Sports Active onto PlayStation 3 and Xbox 360.

European bigwig Dr Jens Uwe Intat wouldn't say how, but by putting two and two together - the motion-sensing requirements of the game and Microsoft and Sony's new motion sensors - a release for Natal and the PS3 wand, possibly called Arc, seems likely.

"What we are actually going to do is certainly continue to work with EA Sports Active on the Wii, and we'll also try to extend that to the other two platforms in order to broaden our activity in that space," Dr Intat told GamesIndustry.biz.

"How we will work on that specifically, and what type of software and for what type of hardware, we'll announce in the future."

Intat did not mention plans to support the Wii Vitality Sensor, despite being asked directly about the device.

In EA Sports Active, EA had achieved the Holy Grail by making a third-party game that sold serious quantities on Wii. The game provides a high-octane workout and coaches owners from fat to fit in the style of a personal trainer. Even weighted straps are thrown in to make life more difficult.

We thought highly of it, as our EA Sports Active review will point out.
