EA Sports planning peripherals

EA Sports executive producer David McCarthy has revealed that the company is planning its own peripherals

During a lecture at Paris GDC, Electronic Arts' David McCarthy revealed that EA Sports titles will be bundled with peripherals within the next 12 months.

Gamasutra reported that - as part of the Q&A following his session - McCarthy said that EA Sports would integrate peripherals into its titles in a similar way that the EA-distributed Rock Band has for Wii.

"You have to be careful with it, because Rock Band, that's a great peripheral, but it's a big expensive box," McCarthy said.

He said that EA would put out a peripheral "provided it doesn't raise that barrier of entry and accessibility" for the gamer.

"I think you'll see games using that Rock Band peripheral strategy from EA Sports, even within the next 12 months."
