To abuse and abandon as they see fit. Great work,EA.

Money to be made and for once you choose to ignore it and blame it on others.

Blame it on others? They can support Switch anytime they want. Right now there are only 4 million sold or so.

Its not about sold, its about how many will actually buy games not made by Nintendo.

Look at Wii.

Having 100 million doesn't mean you'll see Dead Space 1-3 or Mass Effect or Battlefield etc.
If the install base only wants to buy Nintendo published games, it matters not how many units sold.

Why would they appear on a console they would lose money on? Not saying they would but really if they aren't going to make money what is the point of them porting it...

Lol aka EA only cares about money

The issue is consumers are not going to buy an inferior version. Why would they when the PS4 Pro and Xbox X are way more powerful and the xbox 1 and PS4 regular are more powerful. People buy the switch for Nintendo exclusives not multiplat games.

" People buy the switch for Nintendo exclusives not multiplat games."

Pretty much.

From what I've seen over the years, the days in gamers buying Nintendo system to play everything is over.

PS1 basically put that concept to rest a long, long time ago. Then every gen Nintendo was getting, less and less and less content. They kept putting out weaker and weaker systems until those series became known as PC, PS and XB series.

We have more IP that don't come to Nintendo now then every before in any other time in gaming.

They've put this on themselves. The vast install base that buys Battlefield, Mass Effect, AC, Final Fantasy etc just don't exist on Nintendo platforms.

Thus....the install base of those games don't even have much existance on any Nintendo systems.

Does someone really think that the 20 million that bought Skyrim, DON'T OWN a PC, PS or XB?

So when Elder Scrolls VI comes...clearly the PC, PS and XB install base will be the VAST majority buying it, thus...the cycle continues.

They lost that market ages ago, its why EA only has Fifa.
