Nintendo of America's vice president of sales and marketing, Reggie Fils-Aime, spoke at the recent 33rd Annual UBS Global Media Conference in New York, where he revealed that third parties are excited for the company's next-generation console, codenamed Revolution.

Fils-Aime made particular note of third party publisher Electronic Arts' acceptance of the upcoming machine, quoting the giant as saying: "It's a brilliant controller, and as usual we can credit Nintendo with being innovative and neat and fresh and fun. They continue to pioneer in our industry…they make some of the best games in the industry…and we look forward to partnering with them."
EA has not yet announced any games for Revolution, but the company is in full possession of alpha development kits and is already underway with software for the console. First EA-developed Revolution titles are expected to be unveiled at the Electronics Entertainment Expo 2006, which kicks off next May in Los Angeles.
