Black & White 2 For PS3, Xbox 360?

Black & White 2 For PS3, Xbox 360?

"At a recent EA event, Lionhead chief Peter Molyneux mentioned the company are considering also bringing the long-awaited Black & White 2 to the Playstation 3 and Xbox 360.

He said technically it would be easy to do, explaining that the problem would be with the controls:

We'd have to go right back to the drawing board, as we've not got a mouse. What we did with the mouse is say, 'we've got 2 buttons, a middle wheel and that's it' - we haven’t got a keyboard (in theory, although we have shortcuts). If you're going to do it on the next generation machines, we have to take a new look. It's the freedom of picking stuff up with a mouse, and you have to change it. We're thinking about it though.

Molyneux also said Lionhead is already working on other games using the PS3 and Xbox 360 dev kits, though left us to guess exactly which games he meant.

A next-gen Fable game springs to mind (Microsoft tacitly confirmed an Xbox 360 Fable back in April), though Molyneux could also have been referring to their upcoming title, The Movies."
