EA is Watching Wii U Closely

Speaking at EA's first quarter earnings meeting, EA chief operating officer Peter Moore mentioned that the company is "keeping a very close eye" on Wii U. Earlier, FIFA 13 was confirmed for Wii U.

I guess they want to know what the specs are as well.

LOL_WUT1902d ago

Or maybe EA wants to know how well the Wii U does before heavily investing on it?

PopRocks3591902d ago

EA probably has a hold of the final build already. They're already having Bioware port Mass Effect 3 to the Wii U, remember?

lol, Sonic even trashes Robotnik's plans to troll N4G. "I HATE THAT HEDGEHOG!"

DO NOT MENTION THAT NAME IN THIS HOUSE!!!

devs dont want to bring their games until there is a user base for their games

if there are no games that particular user base wants
then they wont buy the console...

then they complain why only nintendo games sell

thats because they wont even bother to create a user base for their games in the first place

they wait for someone else to do it for them

developers lack back bone
they love their money more than they love making games

"devs dont want to bring their games until there is a user base for their games"

A sad truth, to be honest. It's what's currently plaguing the Vita. $250-$300 + whatever price for your memory card to buy games you probably already own on the PS3 aaaaaannnnnd Gravity Rush. That's it. The Vita needs more unique experiences yet its largest announcements at E3 are a Black Ops 2 spinoff and a port of Playstation Smash Bros.

3DS had the same issue at launch. The difference is Nintendo provided some new Mario games a year in and created a user base that is growing pretty rapidly at present.

The Wii U can wind up suffering similarly if it doesn't find a user base, but I'm not convinced that will happen. I think like with the 3DS it will find a user base through more killer apps (such as ZombiU and whatever Retro is currently working on) sooner or later.

They are watching Use? me? Confused.

EA is prob just taking there time with the games they want on the Wii U. I mean think about it. they wanna focus on that controller alot for there sports games. NHL 13 on the Wii U would be damn amazing.

dirthurts1900d ago

First and foremost, EA wants to make money.
If no one buys the Wii U, then EA will not invest.

Digimortal1900d ago

That won't be a problem on Nintendo's behalf.

dirthurts1899d ago

I hate to say it, but Nintendo has been on the decline lately.
Sure,they're selling hardware, but no one is buying games. If games don't sell, no one is going to make them, and thus the systems are going to eventually fail once consumers finally give up on that brand loyalty. It may take time, but trust me, unless Nintendo does something different, they're time is coming.

LOL! Yes there "looking" at Wii U, not actually doing anything though. LOL. I think they know they won't port games to it and there main focus will be on PS4, 720 and PC. I'm sorry but i don't see EA wasting money or time on dated hardware.

Did many of you forget they are in a business too? Why downgrade an ip and waste money on a port on dated hardware when publishers like Activision clearly won't be doing the same?

This is why Wii U will get the Wii treatment. Publishers have to worry about competition and have no reason to downgrade ALL of there games JUST to have a Wii U version, it will get a watered down port if anything but the main version will always be the PC, PS4 and 720 version. The Majority wins and its clearly not in Wii U's favor.

I wise one... Explain why they are porting Mass Effect... Explain why they are discussing Crysis... Better yet, explain why they said FIF 13 is the best looking console version and has custom controls...
Troll somewhere else...
Also Black Ops 2 is practically confirmed...
