Like last year, the latest FIFA entry won’t be on Wii U. However, EA does intend to bring the game to both Wii and 3DS. It’ll likely be another small roster update kind of thing that we’ve recently seen.
I'd tell people to not buy the game on Wii or 3DS.
Bitter much? ;)
Hypocrite much? Pot kettle black
Why? I like FIFA, but Wii and 3DS are horrible, the same since FIFA 11.
You're an obnoxious twat.
Awe look, he's upset and bitter because he predicted that Nintendo would fail at their e3 presentations this year, and it seems unanimous by the press that Nintendo hit it out of the park ;(
Bitter? Look at your comment history, holy crap man, that is bitter shit right there. What crawled up your ass and died lately? I mean you are usually always taking a piss at something but you are taking this news a bit overboard. You have been trolling Nintendo non-stop these past couple days. Literally almost every single comment you have made is about Nintendo. Your comment history is a complete joke, if you dislike Nintendo systems and their games so much why on earth do you pay so much attention to Nintendo related news? Do you really have nothing better to do? Nothing to keep you occupied other than constant trolling? Give the Wii U speech a rest already also, the only place its doing poorly in now is Japan but every console in Japan right now is selling poorly. Sometimes I feel you people have a closet complex, you're like someone who is secretly gay but acts like they hate gay people. In your instance it's like you secretly like the Wii U but you could never let anyone know, so you cover it up by hating on it instead.
@slivery Well said. I haven't taken LOL_WUT's comments seriously since according to him I could "only dream" of buying a Wii U because I previously couldn't afford one. Joke's on him now that I do. Salty, salty. :P Anyway, just bubble him down for trolling. That's what I do.
EA, We can't buy your games if you don't make them for our console. * It's not that EA games don't sell on Nintendo console's, it's that EA makes inferior versions of their games for said consoles.
EA are still anally devastated that Nintendo wouldn't use origin for the Wii Us online services
I love that on 3ds Nintendo notifies people it's only a roster update nothing more it's like right back at ya EA you won't make games for us then we'll make sure your crappy ports don't sell love it when Nintendo thinks of the customer first
Oh..... But i was so pumped for it! *Sarcasm*
haven't bought a FIFA since 99... not about to start.
Do you say the same for every multiplat that doesn't come to a Nintendo system? ;)
Well, since they haven't purchased the game since 99, the fact it's not on WiiU probably does matter much.
Yeah i was upset FIFA 2000 didn't show up on the Wii U... livid. >_>
EA seems like they want the Wii U to fail.
More like the Wii U is failing to draw devs.
lol! The Wii U is an indie darling! F*** EA you want to buy and play the same game year after year knock yourself out!
Yet you don't seem to have a problem playing the same Nintendo franchises year after year. Hypocrites ;)
Like Wonderful 101, Splatoon and Project STEAM? The last Star Fox game came out nearly a decade ago. Zelda games get more changes than graphical and roster updates. Stop trolling.
Did the mass effect 3 port not tell you the whole story already Ea is the one company that would have me jumping with joy if their licenses to create games on Nintendo platforms get revoked
Why are people so negative about Fifa?
Because it's a very successful franchise, but people don't believe it should be so. It's the same case with Call of Duty. There are some justifications to these views, but people also just like to hate on things they don't play or like themselves, rather than being neutral towards it.
Because EA, I guess... FIFA has been evolving a lot, I give them that, but EA explicitly showing that they only care about money (every company does... some companies just show more respect than others) throws some people off the boat. Just like this decision of not putting the game on Wii U. It puts me off and I don't even have the Wii U :)
They're not going to waste money on a version if it's not going to sell. Like you say EA know a thing or two about money, so they've obviously weighed up the pro's & cons & decided it's not worth it.
@iistuii can you tell me where your reply complemented my answer? I said "EA explicitly showing that they only care about money (every company does... some companies just show more respect than others) throws some people off the boat" I know they want to maximize gains... I know the Wii U version will probably make them loose money at the start. I stated that in my comment. What I mean by respect is just like when you order a menu in McDonalds and your food falls to the floor. The first thing they will do is "Here, have another, no payment needed! Accidents happen...". Are they making money with it? No... they are loosing, possibly. Are they respecting? Yes they are... Does the client comes back to buy more menus? High chance, given how well he was treated. Like I said, some people doesn't care about this stuff... I do. Even though I don't own a Wii U, I feel for them.
Because it's the best selling most played football game in history. So it's cool to hate on it on here. It's a good game especially on PS4 & I & millions of others are looking forward to it. Nobody on here is going to tell me how to spend my money. Could they release a patch each year ? Of course, but it's called business & I like many others look forward to my annual game. It's one of those games that I play all year long until the next one. @sGIBMBR I get what you mean about FUT. But I assure you I have NEVER bought a pack. I play, enjoy & earn my points to open my packs. If people want to waste their money on packs that's up to them, again it's a choice. But I tell you there's no better feeling than my gold team which is good but with no stars whoops a gold team with ALL the stars they've obviously paid for..
Well said. To people who aren't FIFA fans, the game may look the same every year but if I was to go back and play FIFA 13 now, I'd most definitely be different! EA has taken a different approach with 14, and it is much different than the previous installment. The only thing I dislike about FIFA is how FUT is such a pay to win gamemode.
Yep... And I think FIFA has been improving a lot gameplaywise. Subtle changes that have been making the game more enjoyable each year that non-football lovers won't spot at the first sight, so it might look as just "another roster update". I don't wanna start a PES vs FIFA fight, but I was all into PES until ~2004 and I really hated how FIFA played at that date. Now I prefer FIFA by far... and the hours I put into play it's well worth the money I pay per year, IMO.
@iistuii You're right, you can achieve a good team without paying, but I'm going to guess that you might be one of the few that doesn't do that on FUT. I myself don't buy gold packs with real money and have established myself a decent team (83 overall I think) but not world class. It just really frustrates me that when I do lose it tends to be to those over powered players who often create those bull s**t moments. @M1ST4K3 I was just like you buddy. I was all PES until about 2006 when I did a borrowed swap between the 2 games and I just haven't looked back since. I try out all the Pro Evo demo's every year in anticipation that they might do something good, but they are just never as good as FIFA.
Because the game on Wii and 3DS is horrible, the same since the 11th edition. EA also changed the arcade style of the franchise after FIFA 09, and I don't like the new.
Fifa 15 "Legacy Edition" which is basically the same FIFA game that people have been getting since 2012 just with updated kits and squads... then they charge full price for it. Not really FIFA 15, just like FIFA 14 was not FIFA 14 on WII, 3DS, or Vita.
It is crazy how they can get away with it. On Amazon right now, Fifa Football for PS Vita costs in the region of £8 (including delivery) and then Fifa 14 'legacy edition' costs £26.99. Exact same game, but with an updated kits and rosters.
Take a football shirt. They release them now every year. Home kit has the same colour, same badge & has a slight design/pattern change, yet people want it because it's the latest one. You have a choice, buy the new one or keep the old one.
FIFA games are huge in europe, not bringing the game to nintendos main console is a nail in wiiu's coffin. heck, at this point the coffin lid is already nailed shut, this is now throwing mud on the coffin.
No it is not, because fifa 14 did not come to wii u already, not such a surpise. Everybody who owns one knows this, I am pretty sure.
practically every football fan will want to buy the latest fifa game. not having the game on wiiu is a monumental loss. it means all those millions of football fans will DEFINITELY buy a ps4/x1 instead. FIFA almost always tops the charts, has done since the 90's. if nintendo cant even secure a fifa game for wiiu (which is supposed to be for core gamers) then there is no hope. disagree all you like, the fact remains.
Its crazy how can EA even justify this? Its things like this which make me think the Nintendo WiiU origin deal rumour is true!! the WiiU has sold more units then the X1 so it cant be for install base. The WiiU is more then capable for a decent version of fifa and yet EA taking the piss! THEY ARE DEFO SALTY!!!! and before any retard tries to say i am a salty WiiU only gamer check my avatar! I OWN EVERY PLATFORM! This is just disgusting how EA is treating the WiiU gamers, i almost wish the Nintendo would get their ass in gear and start to push the WiiU and lower the damn price and bundle in a pro controller with every sku, SORTED! then their is no excuse!!!!! EA must be pissed at Nintendo for the origin on WiiU bullshit or all this animosity doesn't make sense!
I am still waiting for the ps2 ver, oh and it would be nice if there is a ps1 ver too
I doubt Fifa's lack of presence on Wii U is going to have much of an adverse effect on its sales. If people buy Nintendo's consoles, it's mainly for the first party content, not Fifa.
Actually it's expected to be on the WiiU if it's coming to a last gen console and a handheld. Just goes to show how horribly the WiiU has done at retail. ;)
Actually, it really isn't. If FIFA 14 wasn't on WiiU, why would they suddenly expect the next installment to make it? I'm sure this was anticipated by almost everyone here.
mmm..why Xbox1 then?
Oh, you're upset that Nintendo had an excellent showing at e3 ;( Don't worry you'll get over it soon enough!
or how backwards most companies think nowadays. Let's release a football game for an install base of 4.5 million and 8 million but not for a console with an install base of 6 million. If you think that makes sound logic LOL_WUT then you need your head examined. It's EA making bad business decisions yet again.
EA is after the million s of Wii and 3ds owners. No other explanation. They should have dropped Wii and 3ds for the Wii u version, all they care about is sales
Why won't EA just port over the 360/PS3 version to Wii U?
As a Wii u owner it doesn't hurt not having FIFA, hurts not having pes :(
so basically, if you own a Wii U, you can play Fifa 15. Fifa 15 come to Wii U - offical.
Yeah, it really doesn't matter since the WiiU is backwards compatible.
They keep releasing these boring games every year with a fat price tag, the following year these games sell under $10. All the FIFA games are exactly the same game, so EA is essentially ripping people off
EA gets away with it because they have a monopoly due to having exclusive rights to players and clubs
EA? Whos this EA you speak of?
That's like saying who's hitler.
Lol too funny.
EA still bitter i see...its cool...their nfl license is up so i hope 2k destroys madden like they did nbalive lol...joking...seriously i hope EA comes back to nintendo
Okay. Now they're just trolling.
Don't worry EA, PES 2015 is on it's way to Wii U. We never mind that roster update nonsense you nomally did every year
Like Wii and 3DS owners are gonna buy the game in the first place.
No one is going to buy this on 3DS or the Wii, this makes absolutely no sense at all. Who comes up with these dumb decisions and more importantly who the hell allows them to follow through with them.
What possessed EA to put this on the Wii? Not even Nintendo supports the Wii. Seems like a waste of resource if you ask me, not that I was interested to begin with. I don't really like sports games.
EA is looking at the 100 million units sold and sees a large install base. I'm not so sure how well that would work though, Nintendo system ecosystems are different.
Ah whatever. EA is not where I would go for smart business decisions anyway.
Well played EA. :)
