What does EA CEO John Riccitiello have to say about the orphaned heavy metal adventure? Well, he's quite hip to its existence, saying he's seen it, but calls it a "very significant creative risk."
That doesn't necessarily spell doom for Brütal Legend, as Riccitiello also says "Sometimes significant creative risks end up being some of the world’s best products." Gah! Stop playing with our hearts! You've got the money, John. Do it!
Completly agree with Kotaku here. It has recieved positive feedback from just about every video game media available!
It is obviously sales EA is worried about (see: Psychonauts), but if nothing else, they can at least sell on the fact that Jack Black and other stars are starring in it. C'mon publishers, get on the ball, we need this game!
