I think this is unfair to U.S. developers. The developer isn't really the one deciding the money side. That's the publisher. They tell the developers what they can do. They have the money. But I see plenty of great games coming from U.S. developers. At least on the PS3. Sony has some great U.S. talent that makes some of the best games. I guess this is more about EA and how they tell their people to make another of whatever game and just add one to the number at the end. That is getting pretty boring.

EA talking about creativity... and how innovation is more important than making money...
It's like Jack Thompson saying 'GTA is good and fun'. GTA is both good and fun but that's not something that suit's Thompson.

ea can say that because its not actually an owned developer they are talking about, its inderpendent developers they are talking about

mighty_douche3661d ago

still, we havent got to worry about America, there's no oil here...

anyways, yeah most "creative" game of next year, LBP, British!!

MK_Red3661d ago

Agreed. LBP is indeed creative and a British title.
Plus, Criterion is Birtish and they have completely revamped Burnout in Paradise and have added innovative online options and gameplay.

Multigamer3661d ago

mighty_douche3661d ago

but personally i find Americans as creative as a wet carrot.

stealing an idea and just making it BIGGER isnt creative.
