Electronic Arts' Peter Moore hints that his company may not bring other games to the Nintendo console.
EA is a disappointment
True for some things but sadly we can't keep ignoring the elephant in the room. Especially when multiple developers and publishers keep addressing it. -Majority of Wii owners have yet to upgrade. -Some of those same owners still think of it as addon. -Third party games that's been release on it has been less than profitable. -Third party developers and publishers has voiced they concern against it. -Sales for it hasn't been that great -Compared to next gen consoles its hardware is outdated. Even after a price cut and Nintendo release their exclusives, the road ahead won't be an easier one.
EA is still a disappointment They bitch about the Wii U and release gimped ports of their games. I don't listen to them when they talk.
@Theyellowflash30 Yet didn't you drones brag about ME3 being the "definitive experience" of ME3 on the Wii u? LOL Even Ubisoft is voicing their opinion that the Wii u is a fail. ZombiiU wasn't close to being profitable despite being a hyped launch game where console games have the biggest opportunity to sell well due to a small game library. You drones keep saying EA is butthurt but the fact of the matter is, you are only being delusional.
- AbortMission @Theyellowflash30 Yet didn't you drones brag about ME3 being the "definitive experience" of ME3 on the Wii u? LOL - When did I brag about that? The game is a gimped port with No DLC support. Ubisoft never said the Wii U is a fail. Stop putting words in their mouth. ZombiU wasn't that good of a game, that's why it didn't sell. Who gives a shit about hype. You're calling me a drone and defending EA's weak attempt on Wii U as passable. All of their games were disappointments on Wii U. Madden 13 was Madden 12 with less features at $60. Same goes for FIFA. And nice way to leave out Monster Hunter 3 on Wii U were Capcom stated it was a "Smash Hit" Get a grip dude. You're the drone
If we pay close attention to history, all these nintendo doom game designers are really just exposing their non-CREATIVITY to the world, blaming nintendo for their lack of innovation < fact same thing happened with the wii < peeps would say that the wii was a gimmick and that it was a disappointment . then Mario Galaxy comes out, along with Underrated Metroid Other M, and The legend of Zelda: Skyward Sword . these games proved all the nintendo complainers and whiners wrong . . (: and now the same thing happening to wiiU . . . soon enough nintendos REAL wiiU games will show off what the wiiU is really for < face palming the small fries. poor sony and microsoft fanboys are in for another unintentional dominant victory by Nintendo. sucks to be fanboy in nintendos land ):
Who wants ea crap anyways. ... Just get a ps4 for good multiplatform games, ea usually sucks besides bf & mirrors edge.
I would rather not. I have something else on my mind.
Are those grapes sour by any chance? It's not just EA mentioned in the article, its Activision and Ubisoft too, you know, the three biggest names in the industry. Nintendo released another underpowered console but forgot the must-have gimmick this time. Tablets are ubiquitous and not a draw for the 60m+ casual audience the Wii received. !!You needed a better gimmick Nintendo!! Maybe brainwave headset next time? Or just don't go cheap and cheerful with your next console.
Activision and Ubisoft are on board this article is twisting twitter conversations only EA are bitter...
Ι hate EA's guts, but, sadly... this is true... WiiU is a dissappointment. It is a console with last gen hardware capabilities... You cannot expect multiplatform devs to limit their vision in gaming in order to accomodate their products to a clearly inferior hardware-wise console. You cant make for example Witcher 3 for the WiiU... you just cant... and that is only a 1st gen game for PS4 and xbone... look at 1st gen PS3 games and current ones... look at Resistance Fall of Man and then look at the Last of Us. Imagine this difference in PS4 terms... WiiU just cant cope. They are way behind the technology race and that was bound to cost them.
I agree, how can they place first with the original Wii then just come out and try repeating the process. I bet that if Nintendo came out with a gaming console that has true next gen console gaming similar to the PS4/Xbox One...they could of held a lot of ground right now against them. They keep saying that the touch gamepad has so much potential but they fail to realize that gamers won't fall to the same formula again. The formula of, "it's the way you play, not the power of the console." Now once the PS4 and Xbox One come out, people will move on from whatever advantage the Wii U had. I wish them luck if they actually release a new console in a few years...but they better do it right or nobody's going to fall for their talk again.
WiiU GRAPHICS WISE IS EQUAL did you not see E3 ? Dark king,your talking crap they don't have a problem with power as they said wiiu can run frostbite3 its just not a priority ??? look when games are getting built on cryengine3 which is much more capable....get a grip,wiiu also supports Umbra middleware which has been used on alot of ps4 games already...
@No its not the WiiU can not compete with the PS4 are X1 in terms of power. Sorry facts are facts the Cpu and Gpu are weaker. Edit: I assume your graphics are equal comment is because the res some of the games were running at. That is like saying that ps1 and ps2 are equal.There the same res sure but one is putting far more on the screen.
@starfox79 I'm sorry, man, but the truth is that the Wii U's power cannot compete against next gen graphically. Yea, it can run all these engines but the PS3 and the 360 can also run Frostbite 3...will that make them equally as powerful as the PS4/Xbox One? Nah, it doesn't work that way. I'm not going to judge you because you own the Wii U. I would love to own one, too so I can play all those great first party titles you're getting. It's that I just wish Nintendo tried better with it. If they did, I would buy one, I grew up with Nintendo and I love Legend of Zelda. But Nintendo has to try again and I know they can do a lot better, gotta really start trying next time.
It's only "true" to Western developers/publishers whose games would have floundered on Nintendo's platforms anyway even if the hardware specs were up to standard, more due to the general lack of interest from Nintendo gamers.
starfox79, my friend... you must be in denial if you think WiiU is equal graphics wise... in serious denial...
They can make pretty good graphics for the Wii U. However there is only 2GB RAM (1GB for games) so it will never be on the same scale as PS4/One. Considering how well PS3 games developed quality wise I'm sure we will get very nice games for Wii U in it's lifetime. I just hope sales will pick up so we can see more support.
You're wrong Valkyre. Just sprinkle the Nintendo dust and devs will be able to port next gen games onto Nintendo hardware that is anemic and poor compared to competitors. It's pretty obvious that devs are lazy /s
I thought Peter Pan was dead. EA died when they started to open their mouth. They set themselves up for disappointment. Peter Rabbit and co-workers need shut up and move on, cause I did.
Yet here you are b1ch1ng like a drone and stuck with a console that has no 3rd party support...
I was jocking, but you sir is talking crazy.
I dont know what they call people like me but i have to say I can't be upset from this from a multiowner perspective as i wouldnt fully give a crap which direction they are going with this however this is a big problem for single console only owners based on first party games preference.
Too bad Nintendo fanboys won't be missing much from them aside from Madden and FIFA.
Great bravado, but poor conclusion. Still stiff upper lip eh? Who needs EA, Ubisoft and Activision? Its their loss. /s
Care to name me a non-sports EA game that Nintendo fans care about?
Let me try, the Sims that about all I can think of. Of course were taking about console right handhelds would be easier to name some I do believe.
Just giving something else: -Mirrors Edge -Battlefield series -Mass Effect (they can fix it if they want it to) -Dead Space series (personal favorite) -Plants Vs Zombies: Garden Warfare -Titanfall -Need For Speed Series -Command Conquer (why not to repeat the feat of PSOne) -Crysis Series -Theme Park (maybe, why not...?) -Dragon Age (same of the Mass Effect argument) -Portal 2 (yes, retail distribution agreement) -Sim City (they might get it right with a patch) -Medal Of Honor (this one, not sure) -Army Of Two Series (I like it) -Rock Band Series (ugh) I think thats answer the names that you needed of game IPs that might get the taste of most the Nintendo Fans. And I include myself as fan and EA hater as well.
There are definitely EA franchises I care about and would definitely like on Wii U. I'm going to miss out on Mirror's edge 2 for instance. But then that's what my PS4 will be for.
Im thinking they will still get Madden and FIFA they should be able scale those down pretty easy.Though they might not be the same games because physics, AI and lighting won't be on the same scale.
The only decent Wii game we got from EA was Medal of honor Heroes 2, which was a launch game of course, and didn't sell well so it was the last one they made for Wii. NFS Carbon and Pro Street weren't bad but that's about it. MOH H2 is the only EA game for Wii I spent money on. Yet EA published 16 Wii games that sold over a million copies.
The EA guy said something about the online, what the hell is he talking about? The wii u has it's own social network and there are millions of people online, even the next gen consoles dont have that!
Why are there a million articles about EA not making stuff for Nintendo? Honestly it is not worth reporting or blogging about anymore. There are other pieces of news that haven't been repeated several times to talk about.
