May 21st, 2013


I guess this is that “unprecedented partnership” coming into play. After numerous announcements that they will not be developing for the Wii U and even an EA engineer calling the Wii U crap, it looks like EA has had a change of heart after all. This comes after today’s Xbox One announcement, where EA Sports featured prominently among the reveal for the next Xbox. This statement directly contradicts the one released by Jeff Brown only a few days ago, where he stated there were no games in development.

According to CFO Blake Jorgensen, he believes the Wii U is an extension of the Wii:

You know, I think Nintendo’s business was more [an] extension of their last console.

Regardless, Jorgensen says big things are planned for the Xbox One and the PlayStation 4 and at this point, the statement that they’re still considering the Wii U for platform development sounds like damage control more than anything else. What do you think?

Thanks to everyone who sent this in!

    lol I beat wiiudaily, which makes me think they just read other pages and then post news lol
    At least they weren’t days late this time, have to hand it to them for that lol

    Well Ashley anyways, thanks ASHLEY for being on top of things 🙂

    • claudio garcia

      they do lol finally i didnt want to trash talk since I’ve been there since this page first started but Nintendo Life is aout 1hr to 5hrs ahead of this site usually they get ther news quite early

      • John Raybell

        awesome will have to add that to my daily sites to check, thanks.

        I wasn’t trying to trash talk either if that’s how it came off, I really like this site and some of the posters here as well 🙂

      • Nintendo Life also has a full-time dedicated staff. I can’t be here 24 hours a day.

        • John Raybell

          True, The being late part wasn’t directed at you at all :).

          Your really good at what you do and look forward to more of your articlesposts 🙂

        • Veries Seals

          You do very well Ashley, we really appreciate you. Now that damn Kingsley guy need to go work on the PS4 Daily site because he does not seem to appreciate the Wii U nor its fans. He reminds me of Gregg from IGN. Maybe they are cousins?

        • claudio garcia

          Ashley I’m not directing my comment to you. Your the only staff member that I actually see helping out in the comment section alot and thanks for that. I’m only saying that I wish the news came her a bite earlier. I love this site more than Nintendo Life because of the staff like you! Only I like how Nintendo Life gets there news faster, but there is so much this site has that makes it better. I have this page bookmarked on my wii u and check it every time I get on the web.

    • Some people have families and like to eat dinner. I’ve been up since 7AM. Pardon me for not putting something up immediately the second it rolls in.

      • Squid

        I feel bad… Do you have any staff for this site to help?

      • John Raybell

        I think you misunderstood, I gave you a compliment Ashley you were on top of things :). Sorry if It didn’t come out like that, I wasn’t Bashing you at all, the complete opposite. You do a better job then most on here and I appreciate it allot. Again Thank you Ashley 🙂

    • I’ve action seen Wiiudaily post some articles that other websites don’t even mention. You should be appreciative of a website that is dedicated to Wii U news; Without Wiiudaily we wouldn’t be able to catch all this news about Nintendo and their system.

  • Squid

    That was the most hilarious thing I ever seen a business do. It’s like saying “You suck!” Then saying “Never mind, I think you can be the president one day,”

  • Justis Bistawros

    Oh my gosh is world going to explode EA is actually considering development for the wii u.

  • [000]

    This definitely had something to do with Disney’s empire.

    • Squid

      I actually didn’t think of that :0

    • They are making a game of me
      Waluigi World Cup 2014

      • andré

        no they dont

      • Aamir Islam

        That would be terrible!

      • Luca Invernizzi

        A an can live the dream. GO Waluigi, GO!

    • ronin4life

      Yeah. I think so too.
      It just really seems that way… no sports games(which usually release on everything under the sun) and “No games in development” + Star wars games not releasing until 2014 or later just seems to indicate disney not liking Star Wars to miss out on WiiU.

    • Levi Johansen

      I tweeted to EA that I will not buy any more games from them ever.

      I intend to keep that promise, however… if Disney Interactive is working on games alongside them, like they might do with Star Wars games… then maybe…

      NO! Gotta keep strong… MAINTAIN THE BOYCOTT!!!

      • Shaise Mughal

        I emailed them, and I only got a computer responce saying thanks you contacting! They’re hiding in shame!

    • Tecpedz94

      How so ??

  • LopsidedPasta

    EA is making games for the Wii U? I still don’t care. Only a few titles they make are any good. But more 3rd party support is always good.

    • JuleyJules

      I’m not impressed with EA either but i have to say I’d be happy with the new Star Wars and Tiger Woods 15. Other than that there aren’t many other games I like by EA.

  • César Antonio Arias Velarde

    Now that they saw the Xbox One partnership blowing in their faces… Sorry EA, too late, go play with the little shooters kids in microsoft.

  • Michael Jurado

    you give us watered down ports and then you say we suck and after that you want us to take you back pshh I vote no thank you keep them inferior ports to your self

  • Veries Seals

    I honestly was not impressed with EA’s presentation nor new engine, which they said would not work for Wii U right? Was it me or did EA’s Engine and new additions look like they would work fine on all of the consoles from the 360 to the Xbox one? They have dissed Nintendo fans for the last time. They showed us how much they were willing to abandon us and not support us. Why should we buy another game from them. I think when they saw their reception on the X-Box one out of all of the developers as the weakest they said maybe they better not throw the Wii U fans away just yet. The console may not sell as well as we thought. I say F*&% EA!

    • Michael Jurado

      Yeah F*CK EA!

      • Nintedward

        Get this. Rememeber when I said I was going to trade in ME3 and NFS ? well I did today and I got really drunk with all the money xD.

        I am now sat eating a Pizza at 2:40 AM with some Peach schnapps on the rocks. Thx EA….. fucking assholes…….

        • jay

          I can toast to that.

        • Petri

          Thats a good idea, should get couple of pints with NFS.
          Local bar gives better exchange rates than Gamestop anyways.

  • uPadWatcher

    EA = Exposed A**holes

    • My favorite kind. Gotta love nude beaches.

      Wait, different subject. Sorry.

    • Shaise Mughal


  • armyguy

    No one cares about EGAY, on a more interesting note there is a new update for the wiiu just downloaded it. It was fairly small but its version 3.0.1 now

    • Michael Jurado

      yo don’t bash gays with EA they’ll get offended lol

      • armyguy

        I stop and thought about that right as i pressed post, its not meant to offend any one except EA

    • Squid

      The first time I saw this I thought you said Egad lol.

      • [000]

        My thoughts exactly.

  • Guest

    Fuck You EA.

    • Hey, it means we have more games, and that they realized the huge mistake they were making.

    • I hate EA too … But they do have some great games … I would like to see The Sims 4, Need For Speed, Alice: Otherland, and games like that on Wii U 😛

  • Guest
  • Now EA is trying to be like the Patcher guy, they’re both already crapped on the Wii U, but now EA doesn’t know what to do about it.

    Better have some games from EA on Wii U, or then they’ll evolve into SUPER liars.

    • Archiq09

      if EA want we forgive him, they need a very good plan and put bf4 with less expensive to other console…

    • Super Buu

      As long they don’t take it to the next level and become Super Liars 2. Then again, I’ll still turn them into chocolate.

  • Guest
  • Does not sounds as if anything has changed and they just put it in a nicer way.

    • Veries Seals

      Its cool knowledge. what most people have to understand that we really love the Wii U, its power, potential and mechanics. I know you have not come of to the Wii U base yet, but I am glad that you do have enough interest to express how you feel here. I respect that. I really do believe that you are waiting on that killer title from Wii U to blow you away. I do understand that is well. It is ok to have a difference of opinion and you do have to stay on companies so they wont get to relaxed. Believe it or not I do feel like the Wii U will win this Gen.

      • Thanks. I am waiting on that killer title and if they don’t have one during E3 – it must be over for them.

        • Silent

          Just like it was over like 6 years ago…maybe 12…maybe since they came out…or maybe they are never over.

    • Agent721

      Drank your hatorade in full today, heh?

    • Silent

      Thats all you have to say. LOL

    • Nintendude

      Hey you’re back! Where have you been? It’s been boring here without any haters.

  • All of the EA haters are immature and foolish. You only hate them because they won’t support the Wii U, so you call them names. Not cool. Hate them for having the only NFL license and refusing to concentrate on real, updated graphics.

    • John Raybell

      Back again huh, lol you crack me up. You have to be one of the saddest trolls I have seen in a very very long time. lol keep it up lol, just do it somewhere else please 🙂

    • Jon

      you telling people they are immature and foolish…. says the guy who claims to be a father yet for his enjoyment comes here to bash and yell at kids and other fans of Nintendo… anyone else see the irony here?

      • jay

        Yeah he kleeps digging a deeper and deeper hole for himself.

        1. He claims GTA V rules gaming.

        2. He admits to being a rich kid.

        3. Claims to have sent his resume to Nintendo to “help” them.

        4. Claims to be a father.

        5. Says the Wii didn’t sell much (Even though it was the top seller)

        Had to stop there cause This is getting sad bro 🙁

    • jay

      And trolls aren’t immature?

      • NkoSekirei

        ignore knowledge hes a douche and always will be a douche

  • sdmac200600

    LOL sorry EA too late now.

  • Archiq09

    EA … just for Command and Conquer games

  • Squid

    Oh, EA, Sega and Ubisoft kinda took your place when you were gone.

    • Edward Dudley

      Capcom has been pretty good too.

    • Clel

      I’m still boycotting EA (muahahaha)

      • Josiah Parsons

        Same. It helps that I don’t like any of their games.

      • Shaise Mughal

        Whats boycotting mean?

        • Clel

          It basically means that I will not buy their games. For a more detailed definition:

          boycott |ˈboiˌkät|

          verb [ trans. ]

          withdraw from commercial or social relations with (a country, organization, or person) as a punishment or protest.

          • refuse to buy or handle (goods) as a punishment or protest.

          • refuse to cooperate with or participate in (a policy or event).


          a punitive ban that forbids relations with other bodies, cooperation with a policy, or the handling of goods.

    • atl hawks

      This is all seem like an awkward relationship to me
      EA: Hey Nintendo, I was foolish and I didn’t mean all those nasty words, can we start over?
      *EA founds Nintendo in bed with Ubisoft covering itself*
      EA: Whose this?
      Ninty: Oh EA i’m sorry to say this but… I moved on
      EA: What?
      *Sega pops up*
      Sega: He said leave tramp!

      • Aamir Islam


  • EA bashes Wii U, then comes back. What in the world? make up your mind before stating such provoking statements. afterall you’re a third-party company that wants customers to purchase your games. if we don’t buy your games, you go out of business.

    • Veries Seals

      This is true, they did bash us, the Wii U owners.

    • sas

      Look from a businessmen perspective,

      -EA made a partnership with MS which they make official today,

      – just days ago they say that WiiU,a real competitor for X-One, is crap,

      -they say is less powerful than a 360

      -not coincidentally is a console that belong to Microsoft,

      – MS did a very bad press conference no focused on games, and the no backward compatibility, used games issue made many people re considerate the only console that allow used game and allow them to play games from the last gen. WiiU

      Calling WiiU crap was more an attempt to look good to the new partner, also they believed that the X-One will do well so they could flush WiiU in the toilet, due to the bad response now they want the WiiU players back.

  • Orange Lada

    EA has been dying for a while. Needlessly attacking their own industry has been just plain stupid.

    EA = walking dead

  • Nintendo4life

    Too late EA..You’re fired!

    • Veries Seals

      lol, have you been playing Injustice sir? Sounds like the joker! I like that!

      • Nintendo4life

        Thanks man…EA is just a huge waste and should be banned from making anymore games but for phones only hahahaha

  • Agent721

    LOSERS! What a joke! EA’s is truly pathetic, having its employees talk shit about a product their doing games on? Truly, if I was a stock holder, I’d make my voice heard. Setting up poor working relationships is not something one does when they are a SERIOUS company.

  • msrio

    ohh EA it may be to late

  • Agent721

    Just last week I reminded everyone that Nintendo is worth about twice as much as EA, $13.5 billion to about $6 Billion. Some of you said, so what? NOW YOU SEE WHAT I WAS REFERING TO. One’s a big company, the other is trying to pretend they’re in the same ballpark, when they are not.

  • John Raybell

    Its never to late for more support, I hate you EA but way to go, bring us some more games 🙂

    Im a gamer what can I say, i love to play games, and I hate playing companies. 🙂

    • Agent721

      I just wish they had better games. Their sports games never change and I’ve grown bored. NFSWII U is pretty good, I’ll admit that. Maybe they can make a cool version of Simcity, using the tablet.

      • John Raybell

        Simcity would be awesome, I already posted some ideas for it on one of these last EA posts.

        • John Raybell

          gotta love these random down votes, lol cracks me up. I might have a stalker, Knowledgeiswhatsup is that you? lol

          • Silent

            Its so sad he upvotes himself.

            Lol and I’m sure he has a bunch of other accounts so he can up vote him self more then once hahahahah

          • Squid

    Too late for EA… I already trade in Madden & FIFA in gamestop… I think that i will preorder a good game from Ubisoft or from Sega…

  • david daniel wharton camacho

    <3 as long as i get my NFS im fine…. i just think EA is trying not to be voted worst again and this is the perfect way to start… thank you for reacting hope it continues

  • howling_wolf1334:[

    I think that I will quote from Lopside Pasta on his statement:

    Roses are red
    Violets are blue
    EA is shit
    What else is new?

    That was a good one…

  • NintendoNoob

    I guess they finally realize that the Wii U will do good in the market, probably better than the Xbox One and Barley beating the Ps4

  • NintendoMan

    Here’s what will happen if they DO make Wii U games:
    And the Golden Poo for 2014 goes to… Bank of America!

    Here’s what will happen if they DON’T make Wii U games:
    And the Golden Poo for 2014 goes to… EA! For the third year in a row! Give ’em a round of applause, everybody!

  • Erik

    Really? First they say that the Wii U was “crap” and NOW they are saying they are MAKING Wii U games???? Now I have just lost trust in them and i STILL wont support them.

  • Dodge Pribyl

    “Thanks to everyone who sent this in!”

    You’re quite welcome.

  • Zorlac79

    Yes! I really really hope e.a. makes some games for the Wii U so I can make sure I Don’t buy them!

    Instead, I will go buy a different game in hopes that others do the same! That way, they can see the success of the Wii U and feel their EPIC FAIL!

    Oh, I can only hope…

  • Cerus98

    Read this on IGN earlier today. Ain’t the Internet supposed to be fast?

    • John Raybell

      Yeah, you were just slow, wiiudaily posted just seconds after IGN 🙂

  • Steven Scott

    I am still not a fan of them

  • Veries Seals

    LOL, check this out, way too funny but true.

  • armyguy

    There is a new firmware update to the console
    Its 3.0.1 u

  • Quicksilver88

    I just want credit for saying in previous EA threads that EA are total whores and will publish on WiiU when they see it is advantageous. I know 3rd party struggles to sell on Nintendo but I think Tiger woods had to do good because I know many real golfers that loved it. They could make a great version on WiiU using the wii-mote as the club and the gamepad for score card or overhead course view or even as the ball and lye the way Nintendo showed in that old E3 demo. I really want to see DA3 or ME4 but won’t hold my breath and Madden could have an awesome play designer on gamepad and use the mic for verbal audibles like the xbox does with kinnect. All that said EA shit on millions of WiiU early supporters so they are going to have to make something worthwhile to win us back!

  • I’m
    going to laugh if this is because of the Disney/star wars deal and
    somehow magically Frostbite 3 ends up working fine on the Wii U

    • Ty J Sides

      Frostbite 3 probable does work they are just to stupid and lazy to want
      to do anything with the Wii u. Even though Disney holds all the cards
      and EA does not have unlimited rights. Funny how contracts work, I would
      love to see what it actually says. This is the craziest soap opra I
      have ever seen.

    • Dude it’s complete bullshit if the Frostbite3 couldn’t run on the WiiU. The engine can run on PS3 and 360 with no problems…BF4 is coming out for PS3 and 360!!! There is no reason it should miss the WiiU.

      • The reason is they didn’t want to put any time into it to optimize the engine for the Wii U OS. Since the processor and GPU architecture is very similar to the 360 with the Wii U just having newer generation versions the optimization should not have been that difficult. Also other engines just as power hungry and feature rich run fine on the Wii U.

        What gets me is some trolls like to say it is the Wii U that cannot handle the Frostbite engine when it is the Frostbite Engine that cannot handle the Wii U and only because the creators are too fraking lazy and biased.

        • Aamir Islam

          You try telling them that

          • I did just that when I sent EA a strongly worded email expressing my my disappointment with their staff, their games, and their business practices. Not that any of it will help but it is better than not saying anything at all.

            I will also tell them how I feel about their company when I do not buy any of their games for a long time and I hope other gamers not happy with the state of the video game world with companies trying to screw customers out of money and releasing half assed games will join in the boycott

  • Héctor I. Rivera Negrón

    After the childish tantrum, all the insults and garbage-talk the question is; Will Nintendo accept this half baked excuse of an apology and accept EA games? Wait they didn’t apologize. Hahahahaha sorry my bad. Only time will tell. Question stands.

  • Nintenjoe82

    Did he just effectively say that he thinks Wii U is a new controller for Wii?

  • Saleh Sbeiti

    Its cause they now know that the Xbox one is a flop!!

  • Møhåmmęd Jårmøn

    They realized that Ps4 and WiiU are gonna dominate the Xbox One so they are gonna lose money. Fucking bastards. They should make a public apology to Nintendo

    • Shaise Mughal

      I agree!

  • X3Charlie

    The only EA game I’m interested in is a Boom Blox game.

  • Gecko Altair

    How is the Wii U just an extension of the Wii? xbox one the same thing as the 360 just more powerful and some dumb monthly fees.

  • YoG99

    I’ve watched the Xbox One presentation today and I saw nothing more than a pimped 360: better kinect, better hardware, better controller … well a Version 3.0 of the same machine. On the other hand, you have Wii U with a new paradigm: asymetric gameplay. How in the world can EA talks about “an extension” of their last console while saying Xbox is a new thing. EA s*cks so much !!!

  • Ryushi

    Oh EA, how we didn’t miss you.

  • psh. Go away EA. You and microsoft are doing so much damage control

  • Antar Rodríguez

    EA is so stupid by thinking wii u is just an extension of wii , i think its a way to say they screw it up and are putting a lame excuse

  • Steve

    I thought (EA said) Wii U sucked? Why is EA developing for it?

    • Guest

      Why are you here?

      • JeanPaul

        He is obviously being sarcastic.. >_>

      • Steve

        I mean, didn’t EA say Wii U sucked earlier this week? Wht are they suddenly developing for it?

      • Steve

        Didn’t EA say Wii U sucked a few days ago? Why develop all of a sudden? That’s wat I meant.

  • JeanPaul


    • Dodge Pribyl

      I love that picture.

    • NkoSekirei

      thats kind of creepy

      • Zelly Jeffers

        I think they are important people for Microsoft and Sony.

      • DennisJKA

        One is Kaz Hirai, CEO of Sony;
        One is Steve Ballmer, CEO of Microsoft;
        And the other is Dob Mattrick, President of Interactive Entertainment Business at Microsoft

    • Zelly Jeffers

      I’m mesmerized.

    • Rafael Saldana

      After the xbox one reveal, my local Target and Best Buy sold out of wii U consoles lol, Xbox fans are buying wii Us lol

    • DVE

      Pure Genius xD

  • jay

    *Xbox One revealed*

    Fans “WTF? This thing sucks donkey balls!!”

    EA: “It does? Heh heh yeah well… ummm We’re making games for the Wii U thingy too!”

    • That is only in case MS fails to sell based on their requirements and/or price.

      • jay

        Just seems a little strange they would backtrack just a FEW HOURS AFTER the negative reaction from Xbox One Don’t cha think?

        • Maybe they did not like what they saw and they think that the audience may not like it, but they did not exactly make it clear that they were back on board with Nintendo.

      • KnowIedgeiswhatsup

        But I know that the Xbox One will fail…

        • fireheartis1

          Wow Ignoranceiswhatsup is saying the Xbox will fail that’s just amazing. What happened to Microsoft and Sony kicking Nintendo’s butt bro. Now that you’ve seen the light your going to just backtrack just like EA aren’t you. It’s so dang funny and it makes me freaking laugh so hard. Like I’ve said all along I’m a Nintendo fan, but I have predicted Sony1st place Nintendo 2nd place and Microsoft 3rd place. I predicted this a long time ago and it looks like I’m completely correct. Man I’m a better Analysis than Patcher ever was and I should take that dudes job lol.

          • Mc Robins

            Where is Patcher these days haha

          • You are replying to an imposter. Just look at the number of comments of each account and that will tell you who is who. I am shocked that they let him use my name.

          • jay

            Ah you’re both trolls so what’s the difference?

        • jay

          You know NOTHING. Reminds me of the idiots that would argue for days with me trying to convince me the 3DS would fail.

  • Guest

    ta da

  • …Tell me more…

  • Guest

    You know, I just came here to tell some things that are really bothering me. First of all, EA will go back and forth until it really finds the best-selling console to put games on. I live in Brazil and I was searching around national gamers sites and the only thing I saw were articles said to be comparing next generation consoles, but only PS4 and Xbox One were there. Stopping to reading one of them, I found this: Because Nintendo Wii U console does not have the graphical capacity as Sony and Microsoft consoles, it is already out of the competion of the new generation’s best console. IT JUST PISSES ME OFF. Here everyone is really, REALLY a “yo dude look at this shit lmfao” fanboy from Sony and Microsoft. What they want are just better graphics and a first-person shooter where they can kill everybody. Sorry, I just wanted to tell you this. Not to mention that, for example, when Wii U arrives here, it will cost around R$1800 (~U$900), if not more.

    You know, I just came here to tell some things that are really bothering me. First of all, EA will go back and forth until it really finds the best-selling console to put games on. I live in Brazil and I was searching around national gamers sites and the only thing I saw were articles said to be comparing next generation consoles, but only PS4 and Xbox One were there. Stopping to reading one of them, I found this: Because Nintendo Wii U console does not have the graphical capacity as Sony and Microsoft consoles, it is already out of the competion of the new generation’s best console. IT JUST PISSES ME OFF. Here everyone is really, REALLY a “yo dude look at this shit lmfao” fanboy from Sony and Microsoft. What they want are just better graphics and a first-person shooter where they can kill everybody. Sorry, I just wanted to tell you this. Not to mention that, for example, when Wii U arrives here, it will cost around R$1800 (~U$900), if not more :/

    • NkoSekirei

      all im gonna say is EA go fk a cactus u alrdy dead to us the only thing that would convince me to buy ur games is get rid of origin network period

  • Considering how much of a flop that reveal was, I’m not surprised.

  • TCar

    This only solidifies my actions! I will be checking each and every case I want to purchase, if it says EA anywhere, back on the shelf it goes! If they want me to buy their games, a lawsuit needs to be filed against EA, EA needs to lose and then EA needs to agree to only charge the Nintendo Community half of the MSRP for the life of the Nintendo Wii U system.

    • You do realize how stupid that sounded? We are getting more games. EA realized the mistake they made with the Xbox One after that awful reveal. Or Disney made them nut up. Either way, Wii win.

      • RyuNoHadouken

        Disney definitely made them reconsider adding Star Wars to all platforms…they had no choice

      • TCar

        No, please enlighten me. How stupid was it?

      • TCar

        What EA is doing is not only extremely bad for themselves as well as for gamers, it is boarder line illegal. The reasoning for the MSRP comment is to reflect potential lawsuit losses. Instead of EA paying Nintendo a large sum of money, the give the reward to the gamers. This helps Nintendo because they get more games and more system sales. I for one bought my last EA game, Need for Speed, until I hear a formal apology from the idiot engineer and their CEO. Hearing what the CFO, Chief Financial Officer, say doesn’t mean they care about the Nintendo faithful, it just means they see their loss in dollars.

  • HydePark1980

    Bitch please!!! I know damage control when read it!!

  • David Argueta

    fuck EA!!!

  • At this point does anyone who is a Wii U owner or Nintendo fan even care anymore about EA? I personally want the company to go down to give other companies a chance at some of these franchise like NFL,MLB, Star Wars, and a number of other first person shooters.

  • Petri

    Yay, more half-assed ports, couldnt be more excited.

    • #DealWithIt… Kidding

      Nfs wasn’t a half assed port.. It was AMAZING!(except for the annoying crashes and freezes when trying to pause on the gamepad)

      • Petri

        Well, 1 out of 4 (if I count correctly).
        Wouldn’t really call that “unprecedented partnership” a win.
        I own the game, besides of it being a late port, it was made with time and thought.
        I haven’t had that many problems with crashing or freezing with the game.

        If they spend even half the thought to other ports, and released ME trilogy, instead of third, they would have received much more love from me.

  • Johny

    no ea… seriously fuck off.. i dont think we really want it

  • Ony

    Well I would be glad if they do Spore 2, but overwise I don’t give a shit anymore about EA.
    I would be ultra happy if Maxis and Rare moved to another company (erm, to a GOOD company, not like Activision and shit…)

  • KnowIedgeiswhatsup

    But without EA Nintendo will die. You Nintendo fans are so sad. You sad paid agents.
    Meh… Whatever, EA is going to poo anyways.

  • Martijn Plasmans

    I’m looking forward to whatever game they are developing, but besides Battlefield, i don’t know an EA game i want to play!?

    • Petri

      Battlefront by Dice might be nice.
      But I fear my imagination is doing much more with that, than Dice would ever do.

    • Destructonator101

      Mass Effect 4

    • #DealWithIt… Kidding

      Crysis 3 maybe? I always wanted to see what that looks like on the wii u…

      • Darkness

        They had it running they might as well just release it

  • HypocritesRROD

    EA said: “WiiU Is Crap”. After microsoft’s reveal presentation, they realise that the new XBOX is the real ONE that’s Crap. (See what i did there). Now they want to make games for nintendo. Hypocrites. RROD.

  • EA can suck rats bollocks.

  • Destructonator101

    All Iw ant from EA is NFS games and more mass effect games like 4, possible 5 etc.

  • Sam

    It’s probably just a public relations tactic to make up for the crap statement. If they don’t make a great game, SONY and Microsoft fans are going to say, ‘well, at least they tried”.

  • Ty J Sides

    I have a Wii U and an Xbox 360 and the only game I am looking foward to the star wars games that EA will make that is the only game I will buy from EA.

    • boynhisblobs

      Lets see what they even do with the franchise first…

  • Oh for the love of god. Why do pathetic companies and designers/raters (who ever), go out their way to bash a console and it’s ideas. Then for a week later to turn right around and say the console is a good thing.
    We had that tw*t saying how bad the Wii U is, and question what exactly is the Wii U? It’ll fail, then say it will make the 5 million units sold, it’s a great console.
    Now EA, saying it’s a crap console, theres no games in the making. As soon as they saw the NeXtBOX, they changed their tune.

    Why not, from the start just keep your mouth shut, instead of giving your company a bad rep, I bet there are now players out there who will boycott EA for their lack of respect for their choice of console.

    Stupid attention seeking, is stupid.

      You’re abusing punctuation, and I won’t stand for it!

      • ranjeybaby

        ur abusing punctuation and I wont stand for it

        • Arthur Jarret

          So true can you, believe this guy?
          Screw, you Arthur!

  • Lev M

    they can’t keep there BS, we don’t want it


    I think this turn around is Star Wars related. Disney have always had a good relationship with Nintendo and now they’ve given the SW licence to EA they probably told them they have to put it on Wii U too.

  • fireheartis1

    If Konami makes an awesome PES game I don’t freaking care. PES is way better than FIFA anyways.

  • Eduardo

    ALL OF A SUDDEN!! i guess those are the luxuries of been the WORST company in the world! you cant spell “dEAd bEAds” with out EA

  • Len Johnson

    This is more of Ea trying to cover there tracks! From a business stand point Ea is dead to Nintendo right now! Iwata could care less about what they have said about them. Nintendo focus has to be about putting out great games this holiday season.

  • boynhisblobs

    I’m sure a lot of this has been leading up to the fact that EA has admitted to an exclusive deal with XBOX One. Its basically becoming who can secure exclusive titles for each system and which software companies are preferred. Unfortunately for Microsoft they must have not heard how EA was voted worst video game company 2 years in a row.
    I say let Microsoft have them. Madden owners are only going to buy Madden anyway. Its not going to help them push more software sales.

  • Dennis Fisher Jr

    Haha EA you lil bitch! I know you’ll be back.

  • tooby77

    They are just licking ass of a winning console. (Wii U)

  • Henk

    Tomorrow’s news ; EA saying Wiiu is still crap and that they aren’t making games for the system! Next week, Ea saying they gonna release a few exclusives for the wiiu! Next month ; EA saying Wiiu will always be shit, no matter what and that they aren’t developing for wiiu! Next Year ; EA i s saying they are actually making alot of games for the wiiu. Next two years ; EA saying Wiiu is still a piece of shit! …… They just wanna troll us Peter Moron is probally lauging his ass off atm!

  • Zelly Jeffers


    Seriously. Meh. The ONE EA game I wanted when I got my Wii U was Mass Effect 3. I’d always been curious of the series, just as I was with Assassin’s Creed. They refused to put Mass Effect 3 in the eShop.

    • Petri

      And refused to release all the DLC.

    • ME3 is not the way to enjoy Mass Effect. You must start from Mass Effect 1!! 🙂

  • Extra Vinegary


  • JuleyJules

    What’s next? Frostbite 3 works perfectly on Wii U without any issues. This is just ridiculous that they’ll put out some games which won’t sell after they irritated Nintendo fans and then later they will say they aren’t putting out anything else due to low sales. I have no doubt it has to do with Disney owning Star Wars and liking the Wii U. Personally I’d be happy with Star Wars if it’s not crap and Tiger Woods 15 next year.

  • Sonic

    Go away,EA.

  • Aiddon

    talk about eating your words.

  • Darkness

    So…. does this mean Wii U can handle Frostbite? I would love to sit and talk to a few EA higher ups. Anyways Wii U sales have been picking up and it looks like they (EA) have taken notice to this. I will not say fuck EA, but they are on very thin ice with me and I will support any company that supports the Wii U. We can moan and whine all we want, but the fact is we need EA if we want the Wii U to be a “hardcore gaming console”. Lucky for EA they have some nice games coming out and the Wii U needs games or they would wiped from my gaming life forever.

    • The WiiU has been able to handle Frostbite 3. EA wants origin sync’d with the Nintendo Network (which isn’t happening and I hope nintendo doesn’t end up caving. ORIGIN BLOWS!) and there are to many gamers and devs talking trash about the WiiU.

      • Darkness

        Yeah, I was being a sarcastic with the Frostbite thing. Anyways the Wii U will be fine they have Ubisoft, Activision, Square Enix, Sega, and Capcom on board with Wii U. This will be a great gen for Nintendo gamers

    • Zelda6478

      nintendo can handle frostbite, apparently its suppose to be scalable. EA just didn’t want to put the time and resources to get it done. If Wii U sales starts kicking up, EA will magically reveal a frostbite game on the system

      • Darkness

        Please read my response to Christopher Acuna

  • DragonSilths

    Whats going on here? I made like 15 comments yesterday now they are all gone? WTF!

  • $41809923

    you should thank disney for this heard that their have been long talks about the wii u to ea

  • InterTreble

    It doesn’t change a thing: if EA have good games (NFS MU) we’ll buy them; if EA have orrible games (FIFA 12,5) we won’t buy them; if EA have nothing at all, we couldn’t care less.

  • XEri0x11

    EA probably saw how terrible the Xbox One was and now having invested a complete waste of money, they now seek Nintendo, once again!

  • Seriously? Just because they announced the new Xbox that EA is gonna work on the WiiU now?

  • Zelda6478

    Its seems the XBOne bad press had EA rethinking its strategy. I think EA was serious about abandoning the Wii U. Only when gamers reacted negatively to microsofts position about where they wanted to take their next gen system to, (living room entertainment) instead of pure gaming, EA seniors executive may have realized that they shot themselves in the foot dissing Nintendo. Nintendo is a gaming company, all they do is focus on gaming, new ways to game and people have fun gaming. Yes, Nintendo does have some business practices that may turn 3rd parties off, but EA should not burn bridges by letting their employees (senior) flap their mouths freely. Its bad press

  • Petri

    Not expecting anything from EA.
    Used to like Battlefields, but them trying to compete with COD, only hurts the franchise.
    They should take their time to make those games.
    As someone somewhere stated, BF 4 looks like a BF 3,5.

    But in all honesty, all we end up getting, are Star Wars games developed for kids,
    and only because Disney wants that.

  • Nintendoe!

    I hope we can get Fifa 14 with all the features!

  • Jeovany

    This tittle misleading

  • Gary

    We don’t want this kind of shit EA…
