Battlefield 4 Could Come to Wii U After All

We’d still call it unlikely at this point, but suddenly EA has admitted it is possible that Battlefield 4 could be released on Wii U.

If it's on 360/PS3 then sure it could. It's not a hardware issue, it's about whether Nintendo/EA want to pony up for it.

lilbroRx1712d ago

No, not Nintendo/EA. Nintendo is not, nor have they ever been, the issue here. EA being upset with them is their own affair and Nintendo has no ownership or claim on the I.P.

This is entirely dependent on whether EA wants the game on the console or not. This is an issue with EA alone.

Of course it can but why would it? Only Nintendo's first party titles make money.. If it does release on the Wii-U it will end up like ZombiU, a complete failure.. I see no reason for EA to support it when there's only 10 sad adults playing the WiiU and 3.1 million little Japanese girls who just want to play another new version of Mario & Pokemon on their WiiU.

jukins1712d ago

exactly. the fanboys/girls keep trying to say that when the 1st party games come the wii u will sell more and entice 3rd party developers. Imo they've already gave it a try it failed and with the next gen systems coming 3rd party devs know, as long as the product is good, they know they can succeed with microsoft and sony. It's over for the wii u unless as said you want to play only mario zelda and pokemon for the 1000000th time.

Why do people on here treat Nintendo as making the same game over and over and like no one else dose the same. How many bf games has there been? How about cod or halo motor storm, need for speed GT and more.

Each company uses there big names in each gen and a lot more than once to.

Yes Nintendo do have lots of gamea with Mario in it but the big ones like super smash bros, Mario kart only get 1 each gen.

As a gamer ide love to see the 3rd partys support the Wiiu more and im sure if they did the Wiiu owners would buy more of there games on the Wiiu but giving the console half assed ports is not going to sell well at all it never has done and never will do.

jukins1712d ago

mcstorm yes cod halo and the such have alot of sequels but those at earliest started 1 or two gens ago. mario zelda metroid are all over 20 years old. Since the arcade and the original nes, besides pokemeon which came a little later nintendo just hasnt created new franchises. thats why nintendo gets treated like that because its true.

Sony in particular has never relied on a group of franchises to sell a system each generation its been a different set of exclusives that seperates sony from the crowd.

If this game is coming to your console of choice, why would you care if it comes to the Wii U. That seems more like desperation to over shadow Nintendo. Like the need to fight for Sony survival. I'm always amazed at what you Sony fanboys come up with. Microsoft fanboys (for the most part) rarely get into these type of discussions. It's no secret that Sony has been on a decline. A game like Remember Me bomb and everthing is well. Bayonetta was left on the back burners from Sega cause of sells from the other consoles. A gimped game bomb on Nintendo consoles, yall say Nintendo fanboys don't by them. You have no idea what we want or will buy. We will support a game that's worth the support. Don't talk crazy cause of your favorite company financial situation.

@jukins so you are telling me if xbox or sony had a huge character(s)that can draw millions of fans and game sells are telling me they would not continuous make them ...the argument is lame I can see if people stopped requesting or want these games they sell in the tens of millions why would you stop making them if people are still buying them and yes nintendo uses the same characters because they been around longer than xbox or playstaion and people still enjoy them yes nintendo can bring out new IP's but you always release games that attract your fan base do you think xbox one would not bring out a new call of duty when that is one of there top selling franchises ..or Sony with Forza etc because the fan base wants them games and as far as nintendo Mcstorm is right you only get one mario kart ,smash bros ,and usually one mario 3d once or twice the most each generation so how is that milking it ... As due to unpopular belief wouldn't you call wii sports, wii fit ,etc new IP's ...Maybe not a shooter or etc but them games are new IP's and sold millions ....yes I want some new things but that will come after the first IP's are out remember we are only 8 months into the wii u console it will be on the market at least another 5 or 6 years

TheEvilWithin1712d ago

You know how many games I have gotten to 100% while sitting on the bowl??? lol something like 7 games!!! I love my Wii U!

Battlefield 4 on the Wii U would be a day 1 buy for me.

Dj7FairyTail1712d ago

uh no
ONLY QUALITY GAMES on Nintendo System makes money. Games that were built on Wii U from Ground UP.

RGDubz1712d ago (Edited 1712d ago )

@ mcstorm

First of all Nintendo completely relies on those same games generation after generation.

Second of all did you jump lump in Motorstorm with CoD, Halo & Nintendo games?? So you're saying Motorstorm 1 is just like Motorstorm Apocalypse & Motorstorm RC now?

You sit here and say if Nintendo had better 3rd party support 3rd party games would sell better, then explain why the 3rd party games that are on the WiiU are doing terrible? Is it because other 3rd party developers are not supporting WiiU with their games? Does that really make sense to you?

Seems to me you're just grasping a straws trying to defend Nintendo in any possible way.

dcj05241712d ago

All the 3rd party games on wii u have A.)No support or B.)Shitty Shitty port. I don't even have a wii u. Its just obvious that they're not putting any effort in the games. And when they do they just drop it like its HIV blood.

herbs1712d ago

Zombie U is not a completely fair example, just because this one O.K. medium budget exclusive didnt sell we'll people assume nothing 3rd party will sell well aswell. I'm not saying BF4 will sell amazingly on Wii U but it could prob break even and possibly sway new gamers to the system which could then make the platform more viable for all developers and thus the gaming world is more healthy and happy. All major 3rd party developers should want multiple avenues of revenue the more the better its an investment in future investments.
Prob to complex for a lot of N4Gers to understand lol.

Once Nintendo drive the install base, then sure. I'm pretty sure EA are waiting for more wii u's to be out there to justify a port, it's probably gonna be a late port unfortunately.

starfox791712d ago

If it did it would sell at least a million units worldwide,i'd buy it,i like BO2 so why not.
