EA confirms DS and PSP support

Publisher plans to support both next-gen handhelds but thinks Sony's device is the GBA's heir apparent.

The future of portable gaming received a dual vote of confidence today from the world's biggest publisher. During a conference call with analysts, Electronic Arts announced its intention to support the DS and the PSP, Nintendo and Sony's respective next-generation game devices. Furthermore, the world's biggest publisher said it planned to keep its support for the Game Boy Advance at current levels through March 2005.

But whatever sighs of relief Nintendo executives breathed after the announcement were likely sucked away by a comment by EA's CEO. Responding to analysts, CEO Larry Probst said he fully expected "the PSP to be as big as the [Nintendo's] Game Boy at some point in the future."
