No 'Need for Speed: Rivals' on Wii U, focusing all resources on other platforms

One of the few current generation ports that utilized both the the gamepad and extra hardware power the Wii U has to offer, what Criterion did was phenomenal, opposed to other EA ports that were simply rushed to market. Knowing this, the question for potential Wii U support from Ghosts Studios upcoming "Need for Speed: Rivals" had to be asked. (Need For Speed: Rivals, Wii U)

"immense Wii u 3rd party support"

It's sad how a game publisher (EA) can drastically affect the console of a hardware maker (Nintendo

EA game on the Wii U: We get the best user experience wha, wha!

EA game not on the Wii U: I've never cared for this game wha, wha!

That's how you guys sound all the time. Go and support those 3rd party games on the Wii U. ;)

EA talks different things out of each side of their mouths.
Whatever man.

I've given up caring about it really.

If EA wants to continue being butt-hurt and cry like a selfish child because Nintendo said "No" to Origin - so be it.

At least the Wii U is still getting Project CARS and Mario Kart 8.

How much money you wanna bet that Mario Kart 8 (lifetime sales) will be more than this game on all platforms combined??? taking bets now....

I could care less...Yes I like NFS on Wii U. It is a very nice looking and playing game. It also showed that the Wii U could do more than past gen...the gameplay also was WAY better with the gamepad, but honestly if I have to play a game EA puts out I guess it will be on PS3/4. I do think it is funny though. Xbox3 and PS4 have 0, zilch, nadda, sold and even with the Wii U only at the 3 million+ mark that is 3 million more than Xbox3 and PS4. I am just saying.

Yeah but unlike wii u owners ms and sony gamers actually buy third party games, you know beyond 20-30k at release if your lucky.

I am just saying i think it will be absolutely hilarious if the 500K+ consoles in nov, 3rd party games sales exceeds the wii u's combined ltd 3rd party game sales.

How sad is it a currently 0 install base has more potential for immediate profit than a 3 million+ install base.

Past gen is largely irrelevant now, minus a few big name releases, the current gens are on there way out. In a year or two the releases for the current gen will largely be dead minus movie tie ins and sports games.

Nintendo fans have no room to complain about third party devs abandoning the wii u. If you people refuse to buy third party games why should the wii u be supported.

I am a Nintendo fan, and that is why in my comment I said if I have to play an EA game it will have to be on PS3/4. Because I am a gamer first and foremost.

This past gen, why would I have picked up a 3rd party game on Wii if it played and looked better on PS3? The gen before this, I mostly picked up 3rd party Gamecube games because they looked and played better than on my PS2.

BOPS2 is much better on Wii U than on PS3 so I picked it up for Wii U, and don't play the PS3 version now. For me it is about the best version of the game. Lets face it most of the 3rd party games that came out at launch were ports and had been out for a while, so why would someone want to play or own the game again on Wii U if they already have it for another system.

No Vita version too =/

Thats why reggie said "Meh" about the launch of the Xbone and Ps4 ..
Its beacuse wii u is not being recognized as a next gen console and it isnt getting the same amount of attention
