EA executives jump ship, form Jet Black Games
Marina Del Rey (CA) - A group of Electronic Arts Canada executives have formed their own video game company focused on creating and porting games to the Nintendo Wii and DS. Jet Black Games will focus on creating Nintendo friendly versions of games and is partnering up with Flashman Studios to create content.
The Nintendo Wii and DS are enjoying tremendous success both among gamers and business folks. The console and portable handle are the top sellers in their categories which has lead some gaming analysts to proclaim Nintendo as the winner of this round of console wars. Electronic Arts has been a bit slow with the Wii and only has six games for the console.
Jet Black executives did not specify any initial games or release dates.
