EA says next-gen tablet games will match PS3 and Xbox 360 graphics quality

According to EA, games for mobile devices will have the same capabilites as current gen consoles

EA states that the next generation of tablet and mobile games will rival current generation consoles, PS3 and Xbox 360, in terms of graphics quality

According to EA Labels president Frank Gibeau in an interview with IGN, the "next wave" of gaming on tablets and mobile devices will be able to take on the same graphics capabilities as the PS3 and Xbox 360.

During the interview Gibeau stated, "Some of our engine technology that used to be console-specific now can, with modifications, be able to power games on tablets and on phones in the near future."

EA have been working on developing DICE's Frostbite games engine to translate to iOS and Android gaming.

Although in development, there are complications in bringing current gen graphic design to mobile and tablet gaming.

Gibeau expresses it's not as easy as just bringing it over, "You have to re-architect it around touch, voice, camera. Our teams are having a lot of fun with that, reimagining an experience on a tablet using the same graphics and assets in some ways, but completely remixing the meal."

Earlier this year EA announced that they would not be producing any new titles for the Nintendo Wii U.

The announcement came just two weeks after DICE exec revealed that Wii U struggles on Frostbite 2, so Frostbite 3 engine games such as Mass Effect 4, Dragon Age III: Inquisition, and Battlefield 4 would not be coming to Wii U.
