Wii U has been getting trashed harder than usual this past week, Something tell me a huge announcement from Nintendo is looming.

How great would the irony be if their next Direct featured a big-name new shooter IP to rival Mass Effect?
I know it's unlikely to the point of improbable, but oh, how delicious the thought is....

Metroid with a higher emphasis on the fps aspects?
That'd be pretty awesome.

I don't own a wii u but this is horse [email protected]@. That ME3 game was a pure crap of a port and while people like myself were picking up the trilogy set with all 3 WiiU owners were just getting 3 which ran like crap. I just calling it as i see it. I've got a friend who picked this up and batman. It's simple EA and most gamers see trow your [email protected]@.

While I understand your point, ME3 on WiiU was one of best versions, with good frame rate and visuals on par with PS360. It's from the same studio that made Deus Ex on WiiU. Batman, AC3 and BO2 had worst frame rate.
Anyway I think the author is right. EA is to blame if they titles sell bad on WiiU. With the same money they could have released a new title and have better success.

I've bought one EA game on the Wii U, and it was the only good port they made for it. Need For Speed: Most Wanted. It was a great port, but it was still out months after the other versions. Of course it didn't do well EA!
Same thing with Mass Effect 3. It came out months after, and at the same time a trilogy was being released for the PS3 and 360 for the same price as the Wii U game.

EA is just looking for excuses. The only reason they're not making Wii U games is because of their spite for Nintendo.

Criterion made that, not EA.

EA just published it.

R00bot1611d ago

Yes, I'm aware Criterion made that. EA just did all that they could to sabotage it by releasing it really late.

mii-gamer1612d ago

The port was good, but EA released the game on the Wii U to die. Mass Effect 3 Wii U was released at full price just when EA released the ME trilogy. Who in the right mind would pick up the Mass effect 3 over the trilogy.

EA is to blame for the commercial performance of Mass effect 3 on wii u and no one else

EA hasnt made a good game in years. They kill the developers they have

Elementalknight hasn't made comment without fanboyism in years.

RPG_Lover1612d ago

Wasnt even remotely clever, I guess thats why nobody pays much attention to your posts.

DanielGearSolid1612d ago

You have the stats to prove that? Haha

Guys! Stop fighting.
Let's all just agree that EA doesn't like Nintendo, or at least, the Wii U.
