Spielberg talks up his games

EA collaborations taking shape.

Hollywood movie director Steven Spielberg has been filling in some details for his upcoming trio of games.

They're currently in development at EA Los Angeles and will be on show this week at E3.

The first of these is an action-adventure game for Xbox and PS3 codenamed LMNO. It's being described as an emotional game where characters will evolve depending on how they interact with each other over time.

Spielberg told Newsweek: "The challenge is, can the game have an emotional impact on players while they are actively manipulating the world?"

The second project is a puzzle game called PQRS for Wii. It's been likened to a Saturday-morning cartoon crossed with Jenga where you'll have to manipulate various blocks using the motion-sensing controls of the console. Apparently it should be great fun for all the family.

Unfortunately nothing was said about the third and final project.

We'll keep our eyes peeled at E3 for more information.
