EA is developing Wii U games, has bigger plans for PS4 and Xbox One, CFO says

Electronic Arts is developing games for the Wii U, but not as many as the company is developing for Sony and Microsoft's consoles, EA's chief financial officer Blake Jorgensen said today during the Stifel Nicolaus 2013 Internet, Media and Communications Conference.

As no longer offering an online pass and instead enforce gamers to pay a fee for used games. That is awful.

Take off the fanboy glasses for a moment folks and realize how shitty this path will be for gamers.

A lot of conflicting reports going on, I'm sure they will clarify just like Sony when it comes to used games.

Actually confirm with reports? They skated around the issue like Scott Hamilton or Tony Hawk.

There are conflicting reports; One from MS Officials like Phil Harrison, and Customer Service reps. Who would you believe?

Sony only said it wouldn't block used games and that used games can be played on PS4...but that's not even the issue here. EA dropped Online Pass I doubt they did it strictly for M$, I'd be willing to bet Sony has a similar policy.

To be fair, that is coming from Xbox Support's twitter while the fee 'rumor' came from an actual interview.

EA..shut up! I'm over you!

PigPen1159d ago

HaHa, I've couldn't have said it better.

I think EA has noticed that thier announcement of nonsupport has not had the effect they had hoped.

As I've been saying for months, EA stands more to lose by not supporting Nintendo than Nitnendo stands to lose from not having them. http://www.vgchartz.com/gam...

Any rational person knows the Wii U will sales will jump when the big name titles come out. Only fanboys seem to think otherwise.

EA is probably feeling the heat.

PopRocks3591159d ago

Did they really formally announce a lack of support though? Last time I checked, it was some loose events and that one snag on Twitter.

Either way, I'm not particularly interested in anymore of their shoddy port jobs.

Man, so much contradiction and confusion coming from EA the past few weeks..

If EA doesn't want to develop for the Wii U they should just take the ball and go home. Ninty fans won't really miss them to begin with.

lilbroRx1159d ago (Edited 1159d ago )

Funny, every other Nintendo fan I've seen has been saying this sense before the Wii U launched, but other console fans were insisting that they were somehow feeling hurt about EA not making any games for the console despite the numerous times they said they did not care while downvoting anyone who said they didn't like EA.

Heck, just last week all of you were praising Bob Sumwell, an otherwise nameless EA dev who got elevated to godhood by Nintendo haters and media(which has been one in the same for a while), for calling the Wii U crap.

Why the sudden change in inflection? Is it because EA dropped a huge ball in favor of Microsoft today?

For every Fifa we have PES,for every other game we have Ubisoft :) and they have pledged full support with all there key games nextgen.
