Peter Moore rebukes claims that Nintendo are "dead" to EA

Peter Moore writes:

"Don’t trust "anonymous sources". Nintendo's a great partner. They never have been, and never will be, ‘dead’ to EA..." (3DS, Nintendo, Wii U)

A great partner? WTF? Where are the games if your relationship with Nintendo is so strong?

I can't understand Moore basically lying to our faces to make his company look good. What is in development for us? A poor port of Need for Speed Rivals that comes 6 months too late perhaps?

Uh, NFS Most Wanted had PC textures on the Wii U which could not be done of the PS360 they did not have to take the time to do that and they made some pretty cool uses of the gamepad. Just saying.
Neonridr  +   744d ago
I own Most Wanted on the Wii U. I agree with what you are saying there, but most of their other games were shoddy ports that were missing features. Most Wanted was their one good Wii U game. But it came too late and most other people had already played it on the PS3 or 360.

just because they are good partner doesn't mean he has to make game for the WiiU, selling WiiU is nintendo job not 3rd party job

LOL thats like saying you have a GF then later say "She wasn't really my GF she just lived next door and never closed her curtains"

Same concept, your partners or your not! I cant remember a single game that EA released to the Wii U in the last year after NFS MW, can you?

They are great partners to work and coordinate with probably, but EA sees no "money" in being partners with them ATM.

People like him are why EA is voted worst company.

“Don’t trust ‘anonymous sources,’” Moore wrote on Twitter. “Nintendo’s a great partner. They never have been, and never will be, ‘dead’ to EA…”

Ok then where are the games for the console?

A PR statement that blatantly contradicts itself.

Before they even said they had no projects for the system. And that statement seems true so far.
wonderfulmonkeyman  +   744d ago
Doesn't mean Nintendo is "dead" to them.
No new projects now isn't the same as no new projects EVER, which is what "dead" implies.

I don't like EA as a general rule, but I think logic should dictate taking the COO's word, over the word of an anonymous source who is likely not only lower on the corporate ladder and thus less informed about anything going on between their parent company and their partners, but who also likely has some personal hatred for Nintendo or its latest home console, or both.

Heck, remember that news article a while ago from another anonymous source in EA calling Nintendo's system "Crap"?
It's just as likely as not that this is the same anonymous guy.

Peter Moore & J Allard did wonders for MS/360.
SpiralTear  +   744d ago
Okay, EA. If they're not "dead" to you, then prove it. Make a game for a Nintendo system that isn't a neutered port of a three-year-old game.
wonderfulmonkeyman  +   744d ago
Thank you.
Despite my previous comment, I do agree that EA's support has been crap so far, and that they really need to put their gaming expertise where their mouths are.

EA has no room to talk being one of the worst companies around.
KonsoruMasuta  +   744d ago
It was obvious that that source was fake; his knowledge on the company he supposedly represents was minimal. He said that EA doesn't work with Nintendo because they have kid friendly IPs. That would have been believable if EA didn't develop IPs like Littlest Pet Shop.

However, it is obvious that this is a PR statement.

never trust annoymus source...... the same can be said about EA

Release/port bf4 onto the WiiU and I will forgive :)

Translation "no no, they are not dead to us. When Nintendo releases a new console we will be sure to milk all our titles on their machine. Until then, they can go die until they get sales"
yellowgerbil  +   744d ago
Of course they're dead to EA, they're dead to everyone except Nintendo Fanboys. No one that isn't already a fan of Nintendos games will EVER buy the console intentionally, but for those that love Nintendo properties like Metroid and Zelda, they buy the Wii U for THOSE not for terrible 3rd party games. Very few worth while 3rd party games have come out on a nintendo system in the past decade. Less than what MS or Sony gets annually.
It is a difference in what gamers buy the systems for, and they're catered to a completely different audience. They just really screwed themselves by the lack of their flagship games in the first year. A bit out of touch, but hopefully they learn from their mistakes, look at Sony's turn around this past year. Nintendo could turn things around the next outing pretty easily if they learn from mistakes.
KonsoruMasuta  +   744d ago
Nintendo as a whole isn't dead to EA. EA has no problem supporting the 3DS. The WiiU is the only Nintendo product lacking in EA support.

So no, they aren't dead to EA. Just their home console.

You know, I'm glad that many EA games aren't on the Wii U because they always screw up their own games, including Battlefield
Locknuts  +   744d ago
They still never did clarify their stance on that engineer that said it was 'crap'.
Vergil-  +   744d ago
Well, you've been dead to me for a while now EA.
DC777  +   744d ago
It's stupid of them not to make an exclusive for Wii U to try and boost sales of the unit thus expanding their own customer base. Sometimes you have to actually put some effort into it. While its true few even knew Wii U existed last year that is changing now. Unfortunately due to negative press but at least it's in the news.
NYC_Gamer  +   743d ago
EA would make exclusive software for Wii U long as Nintendo pays them
Knushwood Butt  +   743d ago
More importantly, is Peter Moore dead to EA?

Peter Moore a idiot with a big mouth!
