EA and Nintendo: Can’t We All Just Get Along?

It's no secret by now that EA's support for the Wii U platform and the 3DS is practically non-existent going forward. That isn't to say they haven't released "any" games for the platforms, but it's well known they are keeping major franchises away from the systems previously and will continue to do so moving forward. Even games that were fully running and ready to go out to the production line, such as Crysis 3, were shelved due to Nintendo and EA essentially not getting along.

Dreamcast comes to mind when EA never supported it...

ya know the dreamcast also had a controller, well dang ps4=dreamcast!!!

Except this time around ea isn't as big as it was during the dreamcast days and most of the first parties have more than enough money to make up for that lost, unlike sega did.

Damn, EA still butt hurt? Nintendo must have really hurt their feelings lol.

Agree, it is childish. Soon the ps4 will come out and then EA will complain it is too hard to develop for.

>agree to use Origin in order to get more games, but online falls under EA's management and draconian rules, as well as having to use a poor online service
>don't agree to use Origin to keep the online simple and in their control, but lose the games and support, even with ones that were finished such as Crysis 3

I don't envy you Nintendo, but you probably made the right choice. I don't want to have to deal with EA anymore than I have to, and using Origin as well as being able to be banned from my games for posting complaints on the forums is not what I want. If I want another EA game I'll just get it on another console,preferably one that doesn't have Origin.

Thank you for sticking up for yourself, Nintendo.

EA is terrible and the Wii U sucks. Like forces repel each other.

I can count at least 3 trolls commenting on this article so far, including you. Why is it that you aren't being repelled away then, hm?
