American games giant keen to be working on new Nintendo handheld platform

Activision plans 3DS support

Activision COO Thomas Tippl has told Gamespot that he is “particularly impressed” by the 3DS, and that: “I think it’s going to be a big success and draw publisher interest to put more resources against publishing a game in this platform.”

“It got a great reception. It’s a brilliant product. Nintendo’s figured out the glasses – or the lack thereof – are key,” Tippl said.

Elsewhere in the interview, Tippl went on to say that for now Activision are unlikely to be looking into developing titles that are Move or Kinect compatible, but it they may well change that stance later on.

“Down the road, as we see an install base emerging on these new innovations and user interfaces from Sony and Xbox, we will have certain games for which they will be suitable and open up new ways to innovate and enhance the user experience.”

“You can see games like Tony Hawk would be obvious,” he added.
