These of you’ll lengthy recollections will recall that EA pulled the identical trick on the Wii some time again.

I would not say it is the tip [of parity], essentially for Swap, we do not know what the longer term holds. We’re all the time attempting to construct Swap to the machine, and make it the very best we will with the facility that is on that machine that was given to us, and I believe that philosophy will keep true. The place it goes sooner or later, we do not know.
