During his lecture at the GDC in Paris, EA's David McCarthy has revealed that they plan on including bundled peripherals with some future titles.
There was no mention of any platforms or anything specific on the kind of peripheral, but it could start "even within the next 12 months."

Earlier this month, Epic Games teased Xbox 360 owners with some screenshots of the upcoming port of Unreal Tournament III. They failed to summon any interest. It's extremely unusual for such an event to occur. If we take Epic's track record, (let alone the success of the Unreal Tournament series), their games have been at the forefront of Shooter fans' minds since 1999.

Strategy Informer attempts to find out.
