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.

Neonridr1422d 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.

Exactly, I remember him saying there weren't any problems in regards to Battlefield 4.

EA: Nintendo's a great partner

EA: *continues not making games for Nintendo*

My_precious1422d ago

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

WitWolfy1422d ago (Edited 1422d ago )

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?

linkenski1421d ago

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

“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.

wonderfulmonkeyman1422d ago (Edited 1422d 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.

SpiralTear1422d 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.

wonderfulmonkeyman1422d 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.

KillerPwned1422d ago

EA has no room to talk being one of the worst companies around.

KonsoruMasuta1422d ago (Edited 1422d 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.
