No PS3 Games Till 2008 From Eidos

Eidos Interactive CEO Jane Cavanagh has revealed that the UK publisher won’t be releasing any major PS3 titles until next year. While Cavanagh stated that the PS3 will be a successful platform, she mentioned the user base is currently too low for proper PS3 game development. "However, as we do not believe that the installed base will be high enough until the second half of our 2008 financial year, most of our major product releases on the PlayStation 3 platform are not scheduled before that date."

In addition, Cavanagh went on to praise the success of the Xbox 360 and Wii. "The board believes that the introduction of new consoles will drive strong demand and pricing over the next five years. In addition, the increasing opportunities for digital sales to consumers, through PC downloads as well as the Xbox 360 and PlayStation 3 platforms, provide the basis for improved margins."

Eidos also revealed that its deal with Warner Bros. for publishing rights based on various WB properties cost GBP 44.5 million ($87.4 million). These WB-based games will start being released next year. Eidos will also be dipping their hand into the casual and mobile games market since parent company SCi acquired Manchester-based mobile developer Rockpool Games. Lastly, many Eidos Interactive games have been added to Steam, including most of the Commandos and Hitman games.
