“Boy, 3D is here to stay; it is not a fad, and speed the day that we get big screen TVs, and theaters with glasses free 3D like that. Nintendo got everything right on that little device. And they deserve to sell a gazillion of them. I want the first one off the line. And boy I hope I get a chance to develop for it someday. I mean literately, I came away from that feeling like I had just experienced some Disney magic. And I’ve been telling everybody who’ll listen it’s like the coolest thing ever, it’s unbelievable. I absolutely fell in love with the thing.” – Warren Spector

Warren Spector sounds like one of the 3DS’ biggest fans. Just a few days ago he was talking about how it changed his life! So…How about Epic Mickey 2 on the 3DS?

“I played the online mode recently and it’s still clunky, so we’ve got two guys working very hard to get it perfect.” – EA Sports creative director Trey Smith

Hmm…I’m not too sure how I feel about this. Of course, I’d love to see the game contain online functionality, but if it doesn’t work like it should, I don’t know if it’s worth including. It’d be nice if EA could work out all issues before release, though that’s easier said than done.
