Oh boy. The issues between EA and Nintendo just got even worse. After EA revealed that 15 games are skipping the Wii U (and later confirming that there are no Wii U games in development at all), now a senior engineer at EA has completely trashed the Wii U. EA’s Senior Software Engineer and Architect Bob Summerwill took took Twitter to trash Nintendo’s new console, saying that “The Wii U is crap”, calling it less powerful than an Xbox 360, with “poor online/store”, and a “weird tablet”. Finally, he said that “Nintendo are walking dead at this point”. Summerwill didn’t stop there, though. In another Tweet he said that “Nintendo is still operating like it’s 1990, and that they should have done what SEGA did and stopped making consoles. As expected, his Wii U Tweets caused quite a bit of an outrage among the community. Which is why he has since deleted them. However, we got some screenshots of the Tweets blow. local_offer EA Nintendo wii u stars Further Reading Legendary Pokemon coming to Pokemon Go The cost of Nintendo consoles in today's dollars Wii U gets firmware update Watch the Smash 4 EVO Finals on Disney XD Take a peek at this week’s Nintendo Dow 9 things you probably didn't know about Super Mario Bros. Stuart Thomas What a tool! Andrew Longo i’ve noticed that while jumping from IGN to here in my bookmarks i see the exact same stories half a day to a day later.  Wait a minute. Who said this guy was even directly speaking for EA? Smells like an Adam Orth to me. Either way, he’s still spouting bullsh*t from the darkest corner of his digestive system.  And did anyone notice that this article was posted by John Kinsley? Clel Yes, I did. What about that?  Take a look at the articles he’s posted. Almost all of it is negative. He even posted the Sniper Rifle Vs. Wii U article. Lord Carlisle Shows that he spends his time on those “reasons Wii U will fail” videos, of course. D.M.T It’s pretty obvious that John Kinsley is not a big Wii U fan if at all. I thought Wii U Daily was from Wii U fans to Wii U fans. Ashley posts all types of articles while this John Kinsley guy only posts the negative news. Talesgirl015 I respect John, at least the man isn’t delusional and pretends everything is fine with Nintendo.. They will quickly turn around Wii U problems within this year. It’s pretty obvious you can’t handle the truth. Big N have lost their ways D.M.T Who’s pretending that everything is fine with Nintendo? We are aware of Nintendo’s struggles but we don’t talk negative or crap about Nintendo. I can handle the truth more than you can, the problem is that Nintendo haters like you don’t speak the truth, it’s lies presented to us as the truth. Silent And thats why they failed when the gamecube came out. Oh Wait! They didnt. Sylux And that’s why they failed when the 3ds came out, when the Wii came out, when the ds came out, owh nope not true all these 3 systems are sharing position 1, 2 and 3 in whatever order you like for fastest selling consoles/handhelds ever. howling_wolf1334:[ And you lil sis has lost your cuteness… Clel I’m sure you respect knowledgeiswhatsup too… hmm? Cerus98 Lets have a reality check here and look at Nintendo, Sony and MS profits this past decade. HotInEER When people work for a company and makes comments like this people will assume you are speaking for the company, especially when you are in a high level position. Same thing for my company. We are not even allowed to comment where we work, especially on any social media web site. I’m sure a large company like EA has similar policies. Companies do not want to be linked to their stupid employee comments. peeer Dude, when a high positioned employee in a business comments on something delicate like that they have to watch what they say. Its a golden rule. Weither he was speaking for himself or not its the same thing, he reflects what his company is to the public. Quit trolling about the news poster being always negative or whatever. This isn’t a negative post, he only talk about what happenned. Which is some negative comments from an EA employee in regards the Wii U. From readers view it isn’t negative toward the Wii U its negative toward EA. Bob Wilkerson Publicly making comments like this should be considered slander. He is entitled to his opinion but this just further proves that EA’s intent is to try and put Nintendo out of business and should be grounds for an Anti-trust investigation. Their past business practices along with what is going on now shows there is some major corruption in EA and it is high time someone puts them in their place. wiiucompl Take it easy. “The dogs bark, but the caravan moves on” Miles Phillips I agree it is (at least I think it is ) slander on the posters part and EA(Nintendo) should hold his feet to the fire. When you work for a comapny such as EA you can’t just publicly speak your mind especially the way he did. And this is not supression of his right to free speech, he has every right to say what he thinks but he must face the music with everything he says. Pikachief Nintendo is doing better with the Wii U when it comes to games than the 3DS did, in my opinion. 3DS didn’t really have any good games at launch, and then after months and months they got Zelda and Starfox remakes. Sales didn’t really pick up until they had a mario and mario kart game about a year and a half later. Wii U will have Mario, Mario Kart, Zelda and Dues Ex remakes, Wario Ware, Wii Fit U, Pikmin 3, Wonderful 101, and hopefully a few more all exclusive to nintendo by the end of 1 year. They’ll be fine, and will be doing great if they get a price drop by Christmas time. (with everyone looking towards Durango/Infinity/720/Nextbox/Super Xbox 64 and PS4, a $250-$300 price point or $350 Black Mario Kart / Nintendo bundle would really really help. Talesgirl015 Wii Fit U,is already outdated and has been replaced Xbox Kinect. The only system seller Nintendo has is Mario & Zelda. Even then core gamers made up their minds are not even convinced Wii U is next gen…ppls are holding off for PS4, X-Box 720 Ninknowing You have no proof of that and what happened to Metroid, Starfox, Fire Emblem and those other great games, don’t troll tronic307 Where are all these n00b-trolls coming from? They all have under 20 comments. Ninknowing I have no clue, they seem to sense fellow trolls in need and leer out of their dens with a solid intention of trying to get on our nerves. jay knowledgeiswhatsup is the girl. They both won’t shut up about GTA. He’s secretly a tranny :O Clel hehe Sylux You sir just stole my comment 😛 When I read Nintendo has Mario and Zelda nothing more, I also thought one thing… Metroid? Fire Emblem? Smash Brothers? Starfox? Donkey Kong? Not to forget second party games, Bayonetta? Xenoblade? Last Story? And I can go on for a while. Indeed cute picture, perhaps cute lady as well but the IQ is far below average. Ninknowing lol it’s crazy how people can overlook almost every thing, as if Mario and Zelda are the only thing Nintendo sells, it’s a shame that only people that play Nintendo can indulge in the ultimate craftsmanship they use to make their games. Nintendo also has a lot of 2nd party games as well your right. And their all amazing games that almost never get less than a 9.0 in its ratings. gimpcell What is out dated? a balancing board with a gamepad as a weight? Where is their balance board? Such a cute picture for a very dumb person. really Typical troll with young girl picture gimpcell are you talking about me? Why, thank you. made me blush. Nintedward haha jay “Wii Fit U,is already outdated” Wii Fit U isn’t even out yet stupid Bitch. That’s like saying the iPhone 6 is already outdated. And I’m waiting for Wii Fit U to buy a Wii U. Wii Fit is one of the highest selling games of all time. What the fuck you smoking? “The only system seller Nintendo has is Mario & Zelda” FACT CHECK: Wii Fit, Smash Bros, Mario Kart, Mario and Sonic Olympics, Wii Play, Wii Sports Resort ALL sold more than Zelda. There’s also Pokemon and Animal Crossing and now Pikin and Retros project. If you think those won’t sell then you’re definitely ignorant. And by that same logic, What ms/sony games have sold more than those? ms/sony rely on 3rd party developers to deliver the content. Nintendo holds their own. (And holds a shit ton of records) howling_wolf1334:[ Are you knowledgeiswhatsup little sister??? Lol… DragonSilths If your picture is you then you are the Xbox/Sony version of NintendoFanGirl on youtube. Kinect Sports…lets be honest I don’t believe a single kinect game has been a success. Relick Actually Kinect Sports is the bestselling 360 game to date. Doesn’t mean there are any decent Kinect games though. Miles Phillips Metroid is not a system seller? Starfox is not a system seller?Smash Bros? Pikmen? Your statement is moronic and holds no weight.Kinect is complete BS believe me I bought it and regret spending $100 on that piece of shit!What games make it worth a damn dime?! huh, what games? Thats right not a damn game(maybe kinect sports)! Bought that Piece back when it was first announced and not a single good game has come out for it except maybe one or two games. Don’t compare an older great game that came out years before the kinect to the POS not worth a damn dime kinect! People are holding off until Wii U has it’s 1st party titles/more games. And whoever told you that it is not “next-gen” is a Moron. TheyCallMeDan And because the Wii Balance Board is “outdated”, you feel to need to say that Kinect has replaced it… – Large space requirements: Wii BB no, Kinect yes. – Accurate tracking of movement: Wii BB yes, Kinect no. The list goes on… The Wii BB has actual pressure sensors, the kinect is just two cameras that you can get for £9/$15 each. So don’t joke about this stuff, because you’re not funny! david jarman Kinect? Really? That racist piece of crap that when it first came out could register black folks. The only reason people lose weight with it is cause they’re so busy flailing their arms trying to get the thing to register movement right. Omg! Brings up kinect! jay That piece of shit won’t recognize latins either! Will.i.am Can’t even play his own game /facepalm Nintendo4life Troll failed! Goodbye! elbrody what we all should do as Nintendo fans is give our backs to EA never buy a game made by them,they gave us the finger we should return it. Bob Wilkerson I am doing just that and not just because of their Attitude and treatment of Nintendo. They have delivered customers shoddy games filled with lies and done everything to extort money of customers for games they paid for by making them pay to complete and their restrictive and unnecessary DRM. BOYCOTT EA!!!! Show them gaming is about the gamers Talesgirl015 EA Does not need Nintendo fans, they know the real core gamers are with Sony & Microsoft. Right now both consoles are stealing Wii U’s thunder, before they’re even released onto the market. Ninknowing Before i start this isn’t a troll thread, Nintendo is the best lets get one thing straight. EA? hardcore? wow you need to do your research, EA is known for their horribly simulated sports games which no one finds interesting anymore. Just stop Sony and Microsoft isn’t stealing nobodies thunder because it hasn’t been released, and now Nintendo is waiting for them to release their stuff so they can advertise big time, Nintendo knows what their doing. BL4CKSH33P This girl is a fake… That picture is from Amber McCrackin cute girl on tumblr. This troll is likely that dumbass knowldgeiswhatsup guy… or another ugly ass troll But they have nice taste in girls lol. tronic307 I thought about bringing that whole Amber McCrackin thing up but, y’know, I’m not actually Starfleet officer of Klingon descent, either, so… there’s that. BL4CKSH33P Relevance? Your situation is entirely different no body thought you were an alien and nobody cared … so… there’s that. jay Where the fuck were you during the ps4 reveal? More complaints were made there than the Vitas reveal. david jarman Actually, we’re the hardcore gamers cause we’ve been gaming since the early eighties. Sony and Xbox fans are mostly mainstream gamers and only play games that critics tell them to. Now don’t get me wrong. I own an Xbox 360 as well cause a true “CORE” gamer embraces all gaming. Guest Amen! Speak the truth brotha! Been gaming since the late 90’s on Nintendo consoles (played ps2 more than gamecube) and the true core gamers are ussually Nintnedo fans. david jarman I love my gamecube, but I sure do love my ps2 as much!!! Nintendo4life You failed goodbye! EA is crap and they are on life support Off.Sh i love my wii u and enjoy the ps3 but no more EA games for me. Ppl have to understand that mostly Nintendo fans have others consoles. shame, i liked dragon age and sims and sim city. i own a 3ds, hope EA dont make more games for it. hope nobody buy it. Cerus98 I’ve been gaming long before the PS1/Xbox were even a twinkle in their creators eyes. Sony has lost tons of money making consoles and MS jumped on the bandwagon to bring us expensive paperweights when they didn’t give a crap about consoles for decades,,,not until Nintendo put console gaming on the map. Both of them called the Wii’s motion controls a gimmick, crap and it wouldn’t catch on. Oops….then came Move/Kinect as an afterthought. Sony/MS can only dream of having an original thought. Daniel Gonzalez Nintendo fans don’t need you either. In other words, it’s not a big loss nor is EA a big loss to Nintendo. There are plenty of developers still supporting. If you’re gonna troll, do a better job. Super Buu They give us the finger, we give them our backs… while they burn! jay We should all stand together and call ourselves the “Super Smash Bros”. We will boycott every company who disrespects Nintendo and make our name KNOWN. We will also not take any shit from biased websites or reviewers. We will email/tweet/post on walls and give these companies a piece of our mind. United under Nintendo. -The Super Smash Bros. techboy.oh https://www.change.org/petitions/microsoft-please-let-nintendo-take-rare-back-so-they-can-make-a-new-banjo-game starting small can create something larger than expected. just takes one click .hope is the thing with feathers gamesplayswill I’ve done my part. howling_wolf1334:[ I also did.. Relick Microsoft won’t actively help the competition – ergo this petition is pointless. Sorry, I’d like a Banjo game as much as the next person but it’s not going to happen. D Moness EA stopped supporting the dreamcast because didn’t do exactly what EA wanted. EA just sound like a spoiled little princess. I know this isn’t made by EA but it is very clear EA can not even control their own staff. Clel Yeah, they’re like a company with a bad attitude. Super Buu EA is crap. Fixed it for him. MetroidZero Beat me to it. Tobias Naustdal wow! nintendo really pissed of ea xD Tobias Naustdal now, come on people. nintedo said no to ea on something, making ea less money then they hoped for (because who sayes no to ea, am i right?) so now EA is like a little spoiled brat that will not stop it’s naging untill it gets what it want. Alex That is exactly what is happening here. David Amador there are rumors that EA wanted the WiiU to integrate the Origin store instead of eShop but Nintendo said no, after that all hell broke loose. I repeat, these are rumors. But EA did mentioned back at E3 2011 “unprecedented partnership” Bob Wilkerson That’s what happens when you stand up to a bully Warren Huff EA I will never buy another Game published by you again. If I really want a game you published then I will make sure to buy it used at good old Gamestop and buy no DLC! Everyone do the same and pass this message on because EA needs to go down for being incompetent, ignorant fools! Adam Fox at this point, i wouldn’t even PIRATE EA games….. Shaise Mughal Yes! I used to play EA sports now I’m never playing EA! Hey! lets spam complaints to them! Shaise Mughal I used to play EA sports games and liked them, now after this I’ve lost respect for EA. I’m never want an EA game. techboy.oh Lets try to get Banjo Kazooie back! Sign . Change. howling_wolf1334:[ It would be a nice addition to nintendo stock… 🙂 Nintedward I absolutely do not give one shit. I am a fan of Nintendo becuase of Nintendo , not EA. My only regret is not being able to play fantastic games like Medal Of Honor warfighter , Army of two : Devils cartel and Sim city /s . Honestly , who cares ? Why bring up the power issue again ? The proof is right there on the Wiiu. EA themselves put on a perfect version of Mass effect 3 which actually runs more stable than 360 and PS3 and they did the same with NFS which had much improved textures and lighting… Bunch of shameless , lying cunts. You won’t see me buy another game of em , I swear. (Edit- I’m serious as well. I will be getting the next PES game on what ever platform ,hopefully the WiiU instead of FIFA from now on. I guess I will monitor what Bioware does and that’s it) Bob Wilkerson His lies about the Wii U being less powerful than the 360 is slander alone. Sure it will be less powerful than the NextBox/PS4 but the price reflects that and is in the affordable price range of a new console as it should be. This guy should be fired but knowing EA they will probably promote him. Nintedward I would believe him and ask my self ”huh , did Nintendo really make a console weaker than an xbox 360 in 2012 ?” but the answer is no , and it was proved long ago , not to mention the games are out on the wiiu now look the same , a TINY bit worse or a bit better , give or take depending on the effort from the developer. Wiiu is a much better piece of technology than xbox 360 lol. My 360 is dead to me now , it feels ancient compared to Wiiu. Edit – lol ”NL: Do you find the Wii U to be more powerful than the 360 and PS3? JK: In a word, yes – it’s very capable, and we’re taking advantage of this to bring greater graphical fidelity to the Wii U version of Sniper Elite V2.” ”These are all things you can’t do on the current console and PC versions” http://www.nintendolife.com/news/2013/02/developer_interview_rebellion_on_why_sniper_elite_v2_wii_u_is_the_definitive_version Go slap yourself EA. Pikmin 3 looks better than anything you’ve ever imagined. Robknoxious1 I agree although I still will be using 360 a fair amount. Really, as always it’s all about the games and I have several good 360 games I need to finish.. If EA can’t find it within themselves to make a fun, innovative game on Wii U – OR – if EA can’t scale there engine for Wii U (but can for smart phones lol) then they must ‘be crap’. They can, they’re just arrogant and think they can “Dreamcast” Wii U because they couldn’t force Iwata to let EA run Nintendo’s online. Nintedward EA wasn’t responsible for the Dreamcast.. don’t give them too much credit. It was SEGA’s fault. They put out low selling hardware after low selling hardware (Sega CD , 32X , Saturn , Gamegear etc) And they were doing silly things like having the most expensive game ever made (Shenmue) and not seeing enough return. They killed themselves. Nintendo is absolutely nowhere near the situation SEGA was in when they decided to seize Dreamcast Production. SEGA was not sitting on IP’s as big as Nintendo. And they had negative amounts of money whereas Nintendo has Billions in capital. People who think Nintendo are going out anytime soon are stupid. Nintendo will just try even harder and do things like try and buy Platinum and Sega. SeroReviews You’re totally right Robknoxious1 Haha, no believe me I get the whole Dreamcast thing, I’ve posted similar elaborations as you just did in other threads and forums. I just meant that EA is arrogant enough to fancy themselves able to “Dreamcast” Wii U. Heck they probably think their support could’ve saved Dreamcast. I have to say I really wanted BF4 but as angry as I am I’ll probably just rent it for the SP. jay They’re “Dramcasting” themselves. 360 fanboys don’t even like them. Miles Phillips And the funny thing is EA see’s that, with the dropping of the requirement of an online pass with used games. EA knows they have made alot of enemies and allowing employees to slander other companies without taking action against said employee will only garner more hate/distrust. Shaise Mughal What did they say about the 360? Sonic the Hedgehog STAHP tronic307 I don’t know if Sammy would sell Sega. I wouldn’t mind if they sold Nintendo Sega’s legacy IPs, like Sonic and Phantasy Star. tronic307 Yeah, we could have done without the Sega CD, and the 32X. Sega should have just focused on the Saturn, localized the neglected Japanese library, and price-matched the PlayStation. peeer You can say anything negative about sega as you wish but you can’t deny Shenmue was an awesome game tho. As for not having IPs to sit on like Nintendo, lets just say they could have if they weren’t renewing their IPs on each different generation. All they had were kickass games on all their consoles even if they were all different IPs. Sega were poor in promoting, sales wise, but they were making really awesome games on their own systems. jay He didn’t say Shemnue was crap. Read again. peeer I’m not saying he said that either. o_O Nintedward Shenmue is one of the best games ever made buddy. I have 1 and 2 for my Dreamcast right here. Yeh , I agree with you. But I never said Shenmue was bad lol. It just wasn’t financially viable… @Peeer . NP. Shenmue was a masterpiece , I wish it was still around :(. peeer Well I’m sorry if you miss-interpreting it but I didn’t mean you said that Shenmue was bad. I was just saying this as in that you can’t deny it was a kickass title. I just said it the other way around because you was so much negatively talking about Sega that it came to get me and I threw it all upside down lol cept that in myself I didn’t mean it like that. EDIT: Here just to stop confusions I edited it. olajuwon_patterson I wonder why ea deleted those comments oh because they realize they need nintendo exposed Adam Fox I think Sega had some awesome stuff….I still have my Genesis/32X and Saturn….but, I do think their marketing scheme was bad….all they did was rip on the other companies….their “Blast Processing” ad showing the Sega being “Faster” than the SNES but yet they showed Mario Kart on SNES that was a HUGE success for NIntendo…also, they were advertising “Genesis Does What Nintendon’t” ads comparing their 16-bit system to the 8-bit NES which was older…however, the Sega Master System was pretty much a failure in the USA and overlooked…..and then I remember they had a Saturn ad in magazines that said “if you still want a PlayStation, your head is in Uranus”……so yea, Sega’s advertising scheme along with poor choices on the Sega CD and 32X REALLY hurt them as well BCphoton Well Bob, Summerwill, if you think Nintendo is bad, maybe you should have looked at this: http://www.huffingtonpost.com/2013/04/10/electronic-arts-worst-company-consumerist_n_3052000.html Levi Johansen They won’t be bringing Frostbyte to Wii U because they want Nintendo to die. They simply want to defeat Nintendo because they have this strange illusion that they are the biggest and best game company and that everyone should obey their every move. Ubisoft and Activision will murder EA this decade, so this declaration of War against their buddy, Nintendo, is probably the dumbest thing they could ever do. Robknoxious1 *Slow clap* Well said. jay Not to mention the fact than Nintendo and Disney have a VERY close relationship as of late. Disney won’t like the exclusion of Star Wars to Wii U. Things are gonna get worst ea, things are gonna get worst…. Shaise Mughal EA wanted to run Nintendos online? What could they have done! Manuel Alberto The Nintendo network that we know today might have not be the same… Shaise Mughal The 360 dies of the red ring and the slim one dies on red dot, what convinience is that? Plus, people moan about Nintendo adding a revenue for LPers, but Microsoft is taking money just to play online! Archiq09 EA has chance to Nintendo not prosecution EA for “sabotage in public”… Magnus Eriksson No, Nintendo should fire a couple of persons in their incompetent staff on the other hand. What he says Nintendo should do in this article Nintendo will do in five years from now. They are out from the hardware market now. Guest -_- Just…… no. Suraj Alexander Nintendo’s innovations are amazing. it is their innovation that made this generation gaming what it is now. Lets See: Rumble feature Front Face Buttons Shoulder Buttons Analogue stick on N64 started the revelusion in 5 gen gaming Motion Controls And now.. Game pad with features like off TV play which Sony blatantly copied. And honestly, the specs of the machine is the only thing that is keeping the Wii U from being the top selling console. Well, that and the price. LopsidedPasta not the price, the games Magnus Eriksson Im aware of this. However, Nintendo have been unable to pull off anything with the wiiu. Evang3los they have not releases a first party game yet. they will show what it is capable of. pikmin 3 looks good, but just wait till later in the U’s life cycle. things are going to look amazing. jay Just the consumer awareness is keeping Wii U from selling like the Wii. The Specs? The specs will run Zelda just fine. 😉 oontz The PSP was doing off screen play well before the wii u was even in development. Get your facts straight. Nintedward 3DS anyone ? jay Thinking the same. trolls love to ignore the fact that 3DS is made by Nintendo. DID YOU KNOW? That the 3DS has made enough money for Nintendo to develop the successor to the Wii U? Johnny Star True, but the 3DS sales are not Wii U sales is it? The 3DS may survive, but the Wii U’s future is looking rough. Kenny Lopez A bunch of people said that about the Nintendo 64, and now look at them, they’re dead! Or were proven wrong, I forget which one of the two. The Wii U will do just fine. The only Nintendo flop was the Virtual Boy. Magnus Eriksson The handhelds is part of a different market. They will soon be integrated fully in smartphones (they kind of are already). Do you recognize this? everyone Feel better little guy? Magnus Eriksson 196 cm, 135.6 kg, I am really not that little. 🙂 René Park Triolo About the only thing you are right about there… 🙂 Christopher Acuna It will be less powerful then the Nextbox and PS4 but it will limit 3p developers as badly, or at all, as the Wii console did. Alex Leb EA really has been frustrating for a long time as well. The last game i bought was Dead Space 3 and it ended up disappointing me even further. Fun game but definitely not like the first two and i don’t wish to see the next title now. I feel bad that I won’t be supporting Bioware or Visceral anymore. Clel The last good game by EA I played was Dragon Age. But notice that, as of late, all the good games ‘by’ EA are actually really just developed by Bioware. Super Buu If I could thumbs you up more than once… EA tells what the Nintendo Haters want to hear but not what really is. But that doesn’t escape the eyes of the more rational people who know what the real problem is. Now, I’m just hoping to see EA die. To think that a year ago I didn’t know why people hated EA so much. Now, I can clearly see why. Tecpedz94 I did it for you :p Adam Fox me too 🙂 Arthur Jarret Me three! Capcom, Ubi and Sega are supporting the U with exlusive titles in the meantime – so no worries, there are developers picking up EA’s slack. Tecpedz94 Ya recently Ubisoft responded to EA’s rude comment and Ubisoft stated not to worry that they like Nintendo and know they will succeed and will support them, they said : “As with any new console, it takes some time to grow an established base. Ubisoft has a varied and high-quality line-up for Wii U, with morebig titles on the way including Rayman Legends, Watch Dogs, Assassin’s Creed IV Black Flag and Splinter Cell Blacklist. We’re confident that this will help in continuing to attract gamers to the Wii U system and that Nintendo will take steps to ensure that the Wii U is successful in the market.” LopsidedPasta Roses are red Violets are blue EA is shit What else is new? Magnus Eriksson You are wrong as usual. This EA guy is 100% right. 95% of the gaming community (99.9 of the business community) agrees with him too. Just you guys who doesnt understand and continue on with your sect like behaviour. angel and were did u get those statistics from, straight from ur ass, because last time i check the only ones talking trash are those who are exclusives with microshit(btw i own a xbox and i gave it to my brother and he still plays my wii u the most and trust me i have invested a fuck load of money on buying him games) the creators of halo also agree in wii u being next gen and also said they are going to work on a multiplatform for all consoles(next gen including the Wii U) microsoft just ended their contract with them on being exclusive to them, so their asses are sweating because nintendo and sony are taking all the exclusives that know are going to sell and all is left is to sabotage TheyCallMeDan You really need to go away, you’re just another knowledgeiswhatsup & Talesgirl015, AND you agree to an employee from a company who has earned the “Worst Company Ever” for 2 years running and soon 3 years. I do applaud your futile efforts to demoralize a gaming community, you sure enjoy killing time here on Wii U Daily! Fail troll is obvious fail. david jarman Wow, for once you are completely wrong. If that were true why are there more of us on here that disagree. Why is it all those company I named drop don’t share the same view. Why is it that nintendo has the biggest revenue then microsony? It’s like I said if that’s true for you then leave us alone in peace. We have the right love nintendo and no one is forcing you to! You don’t like that then leave! Go join the rest of the herd of sheep! Baaaa! Baaaa! Go-o-o-o! Le-eave! More power and better gra-a-aphics! Murder! Rape! I’M AN ADULT!!! Magnus Eriksson Ehm, no. david jarman Dude so far I’ve posted about 10 developers that have made games for the wii u and that state that its powerful and they’re impressed with it. You have EA who is forcing its main developers from making games and pulling the engine doesn’t work yet they can scale it down for mobiles and here the cryengine 3 is fully supported by wii u. You sit favor stupid people with immoral and backwards business ethics. Daniel Gonzalez Maybe he’s paid by Bob Summerwill to troll all Nintendo based sites. Nintedward Ehm , yes. Sheep PS360 drones lol. Johnny Star More people on here disagree because this is a Wii U site, hence the name. What’s up with the “Murder!” and “Rape!” comment, then the I’M AN ADULT claim? david jarman I know this is a wii u site. That was my whole point. It’s just me mocking some trolls from thinking that great games have to be mature games and lately that’s what a boat load of games usually have buried in them. Hence, gtaV. SomeOne from much earlier who trolls this site stated he was an adult and that’s the games he plays. david jarman Oh, and by the way you missed the part about the developers. I posted them on several comments. I came up with more developers that love the wii u. It’s funny what those who have actually tried and developed for the system have to say as oppose to the few who have not developed for the system. Levi Johansen Where did these numbers come from? Ohh, that’s right… your ass! Magnus Eriksson Har ikke mora di lært deg bedre språkskikk gutt? Alex What’s wrong cat cut your tongue. Bob Wilkerson Gjorde ikke moren din lært deg å ikke lyve og holde ut av ting du ikke vet noe om? Andreas Sunde “Har ikke mora di lært deg å holde deg unna ting du ikke vet noe om?” Google translate still sucks, I see. Bob Wilkerson Sorry… it is all I have…;) Andreas Sunde People like you make me ashamed to be Norwegian. I hope you don’t live near me. Magnus Eriksson Andreas, no we do not live to far from each others. Why are you talking like that? Are you trying to be a tough guy? You really shouldnt. Daniel Gonzalez Or maybe he thinks you’re a douche. Like the rest of us think of you. Move along troll. Magnus Eriksson No thank you Daniel, I will stay here for as long as I want. You go if you want. Daniel Gonzalez I’m going nowhere. I’m here for a good reason. You’re just here to spew out trollism lol. I’ve only maybe seen you post a few comments that I could agree with. Other than that, you’re way off. Magnus Eriksson Well, I dont really care if you agree or not. Levi Johansen Tydeligvis ikke. EA tar feil, som alltid. De angriper Nintendo fordi de vil få fokuset vekk fra sine egne feil og over på noen andre. EA vil gå konk om få år og Nintendo vil leve for alltid. René Park Triolo Hørt… EA sutter røv, men de kan bare ikke indse det, og forsøger at tørre deres fejl af på andre… DØ EA Levi Johansen Nettopp! 😀 Alex Nobody cares EA anymore and that’s why EA earned the Worst Company in USA 2 years in a row. TAKANYAN They’re really working hard for #3 now. Bob Wilkerson If only they put as much effort into making good games for the gamers… Imagine what EA could be if they gave a shit about that instead of slamming a company they are jealous of it seems. jay According to the rest of the world your statistic is reversed. You do know they were ranked worst company 2 years in a row? more like %5 of the gaming community agree with him. Bob Wilkerson LOL 99.9 really?? That’s right this is the internet where trolls make up statistics on the spot and claim it as fact.. I guess we will see at this time next year when Nintendo has released a few of their top games and sales pick up. Maybe they will not outsell the NextBox and PS4 but the hard fact is Nintendo’s impending doom has been forecast for a long time by these so called analysts and big bully game publishers like EA. They have outlived those predictions over and over and will outlive this one too. bradlee donahue I am pretty sure that 100% percent of this community wishes to cunt punt your ass. You sir have diarrhea of the mouth. I am glad you are so well versed in being a dumbass and trying to down other opinions. You are entitled to your opinion but mine is that your mother should have had an abortion. The xbox 360 and ps3 both struggled on launch with ridiculous prices and a poor launch catalog. You just need to wipe your fucking mouth and troll on somewhere else. Alex Looks like we found a new Adam Orth. tronic307 Achievement Unlocked: #dealtwith Alex Don’t worry I am dealing with it, my money is doing the talking and says no money to EA anymore. Johnny Star Don’t worry, you can’t send it to EA anyways if you’re purchasing for the Wii U Waluigi Bob Summerwill is crap Smurfman256 Warfighter was crap, Army of TIIIO: Devil’s Cartel was bland, and Sim City was plagued by it’s always Online DRM and removal of fan favorite features. invible I used to be the biggest Nintendo fan buy each console buy merchandise I own almost each Nintendo console never bought anything from another gaming company (except Microsoft computer). But due to recent events like the YouTube thing I cant do my vids anymore (this isn’t my youtube name) I cant watch my favourite youtuber play my fave games (DSP gaming best youtuber ever) I am pissed at Nintendo love games. Wii U is fun love playing exclusive Nintendo games as well as games like ac3 on just gamepad. I think this deservers to be a next gen console but so angry at Nintendo right now. EA games can be fun but EA are fucking pricks. Right now I am so angry at nintedo. The wiiu is not crap its just no games coming to it but Ubisoft games basically which people can get those games on other consoles and know that gmaes will actually come out on them and that is also the reason wiiu is thought as current gen and unforttunatlly may be outdated in next couple of years and you have know idea how much it pains me to say it. Guest You say it only has ubisoft support and which right now seems true but really you have Capcom, Sega planning to realease a few exclusives to the Wii U, Square Enix realeasing a better version of Dues Ex etc. Don’t be angry at Nintendo for making a capable console and dev’s coming up with bs reasons not to support it because Nintendo has done a great job with Wii U. And let me let you in on something, While youtubers won’t make money on doing let’s plays of Nintendo 1st party games it shouldn’t be a reason for them not to make them. Lets plays are people playing a game and talking about it, if it pains youtubers to do something they love and upload it without making a profit then they shouldn’t make videos, or if they do make let’s play videos they need to make other vids to make money on. Nintendo has done whats right and thats making attempts to make money on let’s play videos while allowing people to post them, instead of getting peoples profiles banned/suspended for having first party games shown. Jon lol… the youtube thing, you know those people are using the content from Nintendo to make money right? it is borderline plagiarism. Nintendo puts Months into making these games and then some kid/ young adults go and play the game for 10-15 hours, have a good time and then make a 20-30 minute video in an hour. They don’t deserve to make money from the countless hours that Nintendo spends to bring something truly amazing. Bob Wilkerson It’s not borderline… it is flat out copyright infringement. Just like movies and music you are only allowed to use so much of the content before you violate those laws. That goes if you are making a profit or not. Miles Phillips You shouldn’t be mad at Nintendo for the youtube thing, they have a right to do what they have done and at least they didn’t ban or get your account suspended for having 1st party Nintendo games on it(like Sega did/does). And while I don’t make youtube video’s I feel that IMO if you like gaming and making videos it shouldn’t matter if you get a profit, you should do it because you love it. If it comes down to it make other videos to make money, like review the Wii U system, Games, show lets plays of big 3rd party games etc. And occasionally make lets plays of 1st party Nintendo games. The Wii U is supported by alot of 3rd party devs much bigger(IMO) than EA such as Ubisoft, Sega, Capcom, Square Enix etc. What with new games such as Sega announcing exclusives to Wii U, Square Enix bringing a much better version of Dues Ex to the Wii U I see a good future for the Wii U and don’t see the Wii U being anywhere near outdated a couple of years from now. Shaise Mughal At least konami is being smart and putting PES 14 on Wii U, I preffer that game more Mr. blobby medal of honour was linear and boring with a shooting brown people for freedom type storyline. I get my entire opinion of this game from one guy off youtube, But he seems to be very reliable. Enigma Hahahahaha. Excellent. Excellently said. Preach it EA. You may be a shitty company, but at least you are in a terrible enough position with Nintendo that you are able to say the truth without any fear of repercussion. EASeniorEngineerFKAPachterJr Yeah, Wii U is crap. I hate to say it but Nintendos age is showing. Poor old dog that won’t learn new tricks. I bought one for my brothers and they rather play their PS3. They use to love Nintendo when they were kids. Then, somewhere along the line the silly names and word play wasn’t so cool. The interface of cute “Miis” and excessive use of xylophones tones just sets a mood of play time with Mr Rogers. Nintendo’s a master when it comes to marketing for kids, but when those kids grow up they kinda feel alienated, the majority at least. If Nintendo’s not careful they’ll end up just like Blockbuster. There not too big to fail, just ask Microsoft. They can all take a page out of McDonald marketing play book. And when they realize that peoples taste changes, they’ll add new options to the menu like the new premium graphics whore burger, and the octa-core latte. Kristian Kouvo EA is burning their bridges here and hurting only their own future. Some day they will be very, VERY sorry and the shitstorm coming for them they have only themselves to blame. Idiotic behaviour which you would expect only from a 5 year old, not from an international company. Disgusting stuff. teknik1200 it’s more like “Nintendo won’t let us micro transact and nickle and dime users to death so I’m takeing my toys and going home!” gamesplayswill I really…. fucking hate EA….. kinghenroc187 fuck you…. nintendo needs 3rd party.. befor xbox and sony all third party games was on the saga and nintendo systems this wouldn’t be happening if nintendo never would of made the first wii nintendo always bin a head in graphics and software im 28 i bin through most generations the snes had more graphics then saga genesis playstaion was 32 bit N64 was 64bit double of playstation in all aspecs now we got dreamcast then ps2 then xbox then finally gamecube the most powerfull one the wii 360 ps3 came in the new generation of kids that dont know what happen from gamecube down but i do i know the truth nintendo isn’t going any where they are dying laughing right now at all this bull shit do you think they really care when the wii sold more then xbox and ps3 combined im not a fanboy because i cant play halo on nintendo or god of war i love all 3 but you guys got to come yo your sense Clel Dat grammar NkoSekirei nintendo doesnt need EA we got plenty of third party support so if EA wants to continue to bitch about origin still and it shows their not gonna chnage their ways and they lll just sweep the worst gaming company award 3 years in a row Peter Rogers Wow. Next time, could you please use punctuation. Headache over here. Nintedward And not start your paragraph with ‘fuck you…..’ lmao. Peter Rogers Yeah. Lol… Not the best way to start off is it. tronic307 Dude looks like he’s representing Washington Heights. I don’t think it’s popular to be smart around there. From my recollection, “Fuck You” is how they greet each other. Nintedward lmao Talesgirl015 Exactly, the last time EA stop supporting Console Manufacturer was Sega Dreamcast. I’d hate to see history repeat itself, but Nintendo rushed into the next gen to get a early start on Microsoft & Sony. totally unprepared, overpriced console with no games… Ninknowing Over priced how much do you want a next gen console to cost? If anything they are prepared, just watch Nintendo in action… mikema lets see how sony and microsoft will sell their powerfull machines and then we will see witch system is overpriced,and if their sales are better than the wiiu. Sylux I actually partially agreed with you… until you wrote unprepared, overpriced, no games. So what do you expect PS4 and Nextbox price tag will be? 349 like WiiU? IF they come available at that price I agree with you that WiiU is overpriced, BUT looking at the hardware of PS4 (xbox will likely be pretty similair in hardware) I tag a price: $/€399,- basic model. $/€ 449,-/499,- for the “deluxe” versions, and I think I even underprice now for the real price, I dare to say it’ll be more in the range of $/€549,- I guess after e3 we will know more on the price tags… Gabe Hoffman You seriously need to work on your grammar pal gamesplayswill This was very hard to read, please work on your grammar. Archiq09 ok… EA are henceforth: psychopath, disturb, obsessed When you ransack a console cause you dont want make games on it…. seriously EA, you need a psychologist. Aleksandar Antonijevic I love EA they’re totally right ! Fifa 13 ftw ! Derp ! Bob Wilkerson Sarcasm? Clel Sarcasm. guest sounds like EA is a bitchy little school preteen with their panties in a twist. i for one am done supporting EA in anyway on any system because of how they treat one of the biggest gaming companies in history. they dont have a right to exclude millions of gamers from their products because of some fued. its so overly childish. and im done with any game producer that treats the gaming industry in such a manner. RIP EA u r now dead to me and i will let every gamer i know not to support ur products. NkoSekirei same and any star wars games they will make will be using origin if their online which ill pass Clel For me, it’s not just that they’ve been terrible dealing with Nintendo, as of late. It’s also that they’ve been terrible with their customers, too; DLC day one, false advertising, unfinished games… you get the idea. Talesgirl015 RIP Nintendo, You’ve alienated yourself from third parties, and virtually ignoring the core gamers desires.. Laughable you think EA needs the Big N to stay in business, when they’ve kep partnerships with Sony & Microsoft. Oh by the way did I forget to mention this is where the core gamers are? david jarman Ea wanted them to incorporate they’re origins into their online store so that they would get royalties for every game bought online. They didn’t do that to Sony or ms. It’s EA that were being douche’ bags. There other companies that praise wii u. This is the perfect example of defamation(which is a legal issue and can get them in trouble). He says it crap verses Crytek, criterion, capcom, shin’en, frozenbyte, activision, ubisoft, slightly mad studios, platinum and precursor who all praise and say its more powerful then the Xbox 360 and ps3. http://nintendoeverything.com/… http://www.gametrailers.com/si… http://wiiudaily.com/2013/01/f… http://www.nintendolife.com/ne… http://www.nintendolife.com/ne… FYI! The worst company of the year didn’t just come from nintendo fans , but mostly pc, ps3, and Xbox fans as well. Nintendo4life That is very true but remember some trolls will hate anyways Ninknowing Attention everyone Professional Troll in the building I repeat Professional Troll in the building. BL4CKSH33P Professional? HA! Trolling: The art of deliberately, cleverly, and secretly pissing people off, usually via the internet… This person is just an asshole with no life. Not clever not sneaky… an amateur troll is not amusing at all and is a waste of space. I can respect some good trolling if it is clever but this… SHIT. Silent Dont come back running when the AAA titles come out. Ironic because you own a Wii U. jay “RIP Nintendo, You’ve alienated yourself from third parties, and virtually ignoring the core gamers desires.. ” I remember hearing this in 2006. De Ja Vu!!

Shame on you. Nintendo4life R.I.P EA and man Nintendo will be around long after EA is dead and gone ReturnoftheTruth2 That’s what other systems are for – to get the games that you want. tronic307 IDGAF, I just get ’em all. PS4 is next, just gotta work on my credit score, yep! guest lol thats y i give nintendo my money. i have a pc for all the games i ”might” like and a wii u for games i know i will like. jay Same strategy here!! Clel Me too 😀 david jarman That means something different to everybody. jay That YOU want. Exactly, but most of the population want Pokemon, Smash Bros. Mario, Wii Fit. Sales don’t lie. ReturnoftheTruth2 You are right – sales don’t lie, but you Nintendo nuts would still have us think that the Wii U is doing well! jay By Nintendo standards it’s not. But its still outselling 360/ps3 launch numbers and that’s something you’ll never admit! ReturnoftheTruth2 If so, price is the main factor, but even with Wii U’s cheaper price, it is not doing anything. Now what if the new systems sell more than the Wii U in two months, will you people finally leave that BS excuse alone? jay It’s NOT a “BS excuse” It’s a FACT. What the hell do you not understand?!!!! howling_wolf1334:[ Hey , broo, today you get a little sister, in order that you dont stay alone in this forum bothering us… Why dont you go away and play like crazy barbies with your little sister??? Talesgirl015??? jay I think it is HIM. They mention the same things. They both root for GTA IV. and c’mon guys, when’s the last time you say a girl cheering for GTA? BL4CKSH33P This guy sucks so much dick he doesn’t have breath for spaces between his words haha Jon more like that’s what PC is for, it plays nearly the rest of the games Nintendo doesn’t have and plays them better. Clel This is INCREDIBLY unprofessional. This is actually more illogical, venemous, and biased than even knowlegeiswhatsup’s posts. I’m flabbergasted. Sure, maybe they don’t like Nintendo and are angry. But this? Really? EA should fire the guy. I would be just as outraged if he was dissing Sony/Microsoft and saying that their systems (PS4 and Nextbox) were less powerful than the Wii U. Nintedward I’m trading in ME3 ”special edition” and NFSMW tomorrow lol. Captain Falcon No, no. Keep NFSMW. At least Criterion respects Nintendo. jay I hope Criterion understands the situation and leaves EA. I said it in 2003 and I’ll say it again: FUCK EA ronin4life I had heard EA already shafted Criterion on another forum… jay I just want them to understand the boycott and not rebel against the Wii. Michael Ancel understood, I hope Criterion does as well. really Didn’t really like new NFSMW btw. But still it will be cool if EA start support nintendo, more new gamers will come for wii u. Nintedward I’m just doing it cus of EA. Criterion are great though , yes 🙁 Nintendo4life Where did you get that pic that is pricless WiiUBuddy I do believe the Wii U is underpowered, but I know it’s not crap. EA shouldn’t be talking since Nintendo isn’t holding the “Worst Company” title. Stop making harsh comments without seeing one’s own actions first. NkoSekirei its not underpowered dude its far more powerful then ps3,360 and the wii its just that these lazy developers arnt tapping the full potential of the wii u and EA is being butthurt over origin which its started to annoy us cause it shows us their acting like a spoiled brat cause they didnt get their own way WiiUBuddy The Wii U might be slightly or equally as powerful as an xbox 360. It’s the facts. Nintendo makes consoles with cheaper specs they get cheaper results. NkoSekirei it alrdy been proving by nintendo and the third party devs that are supporting the wii u dude cause wii u runs on 2011 specs but 360 and ps3 they run on mid 2000 specs Bob Wilkerson The GPU alone is way more powerful than the 360’s. The clock speed may be reported lower (which has never been confirmed BTW) but the processor series is at least 2 generations newer than the 360. I think what you mean to say is the Wii U will not be as powerful as the NextBox or PS4 but has plenty of power to play games in HD and still look great. Talesgirl015 EA games is not a company that any developer wants to mess with. They’re. Second only to Activision in terms of revenue, & publish some of the biggest franchises today.. Nintendo screw up big time stop protecting them… WiiUBuddy I’m not protecting anyone. I’m only saying that EA should first worry about their own business before calling anything crap. I’ve been stating the facts but my old account was deleted due to butthurt people. Don’t misunderstand me next time, thank you. tronic307 If you like EA, you probably don’t have a Wii U. All EA games have sold like under 50k on Wii U. It’s not worth it to them, and quite frankly no one cares. EA are the ones trying to call attention to it. It’s high time for EA to grow up and move on; I’m sure Nintendo has. Nintendo4life That is laughable EA is crap look at there simcity it ended up crap and none of there sports games are that great now you like EA that fine but i have boycotted that foul company Ben Ifits So says the senior engineer of the worst company in America three years in a row. That shit MUST be true! Bob Wilkerson Actually I think it has only been 2 but they are well on their way for a 3rd title. Clel Waiting for knowledgeiswhatsup to come and agree with this guy… Remember guys, don’t feed the troll. If you don’t feed him, he just might shrivel up and die, or at least return to his cave. ReturnoftheTruth2 I made my comments on the site of the source… Clel Hey, I have an honest, serious question here. Don’t try to read into it, my question is nothing more or less than what it is: Do you actually have a Wii U? tronic307 He might have said he couldn’t afford one. Good luck with Xbox Infinity, then. ReturnoftheTruth2 nope Clel Ooohh… that explains some stuff. But truly and really, thanks for answering honestly. tronic307 Aw shit, you just stirred him up! Nintendo4life Hahahaha.. Octavio Gonzalez-Guerra Vazque Thats quite ironic, isnt it? VideoGames Next BOYCOTT E.A GAMES LETS START THAT Nolan ArchLord Those who own a Wii U and no other console are kind of forced to… 😀 VideoGames Next that was good thank you lol Nintendo4life I have already..Boycott EA Jon Last EA game I bought was BF3, stopped playing after 3 weeks, it’s the same thing over and over and over…. RedChu I can live without EA’s games, though I do still want to get Need for Speed Most Wanted for Wii U… maybe I’ll just buy it used so EA doesn’t get anything from it. really Don’t bother it’s crap. I don’t know how some people love new MW Zack4812 This is why EA is the worst company in America. wiiucompl EA for a year or two will be making games for Nintendo Wii U. The market of several million consoles can not be underestimated. Yogurtu Mghe Some people just get mad that no matter what graphics specs, the “shitty” wii sold and still sells more units. And that Nintendo games crushes their games. These people talk so much about how the wii is for kids but the zelda and mario franchises are more valuable than FF, LBP (they even tried to compete with mario kart by making littlebigplanet karting. mehehehe) Imagine Nintendo giving up; the fire emblem franchise at the hands of sony or microsoft… Monster Hunter, Pokemon (they want those for sure). Ninknowing EA is trash, do you really think you have the right to talk about any company with “success” written in their name. EA got deemed the worst gaming company of the year award, for a reason their angry trolls that can’t make video games to save their life. Whenever i pick up a game made by EA and try to play it i wonder to myself who made these games apes? Wow EA low blow from the worst company in the world but its okay we don’t need your terribly simulated games. Frank About everything EA has done makes nintendo’s ID claim forgivable. first ME3’s ending Medal of honor warfighter’s flop, Dead space 3 SimCity’s launch and now this uPadWatcher Bob needs to be fired! tronic307 Hopefully, this guy gets ‘Orthed’ by Monday. His tweets are already gone, maybe his job will follow suit. Talesgirl015 Why is this a surprise,, Nintendo has once again alienated themselves from third parties,like EA and core gamers. they foolishly assumed that the people who made their Wii successful in the first place (families with kids) were going to be easily persuaded into getting on the same “upgrade outdated console, unfortunately for them. Casual moved on due to the popularity of tablets & smartphones…-_- Nintedward Shut up , meg. Nintendo4life Trolls are a waste of time. There are like a bad fart that lingers..They will fade in time Nolan ArchLord I hope you didn’t intend to associate EA with “core” gamers. mikema Can you tell me one good reason for the wiiu doesn´t have great third party support? i believe that is more than capable of running all modern game engines..and it will expand is audience greatly in the future months, thanks to is IPs. and the wiiu is a great improvement over the wii, and has backwards compability..for me it makes more sense to buy the wiiu than other hardware. I just need the games to show up!!! Silent So the console fails only after 6 months from release date, still at its launch period, Just like the 3ds did. Oh Wait! tronic307 Oh, I see. Blame this on Nintendo, riiight. My library is just fine without EA games. Except for maybe… Boom Blox. Yeah, EA try Boom Blox 3 instead of weakly ported PS360 crap! NkoSekirei why dont u stfu troll u know nothing wats going on with EA if u like them soo much go get a room but for now nintendo does not need EA for support period Nintendo4life Wow a 11 thumbs down…I see alot of people don’t agree with crap coming out of your mouth.. Daniel Gonzalez What’s with the “-_-” face? Who knew trolls got annoyed. Mario Borbon wiiu can be less powerful, this year it wont matter. this man knows where its at http://youtu.be/vfpeFKG4Cvg david jarman This is the perfect example if defamation.

Nolan ArchLord So amusing this guy. Some engineer for the sports department whose greatest “innovation” seems to be an updated roster for the year’s new Madden title. So glad I don’t have to wad through EA trash when I’m looking for Wii U games. I won’t be so lucky when I’m at the store looking for PS4 games… : ZeldaFan83 I honestly don’t think any of this really matters as this just reflects one persons point of view and not the entire company. In the end it’s about making and playing enjoyable games not how powerful the GPU is or how fast of a clock speed the CPU is. Most gamers play games for the enjoyment and excitement of the game not how many pixels you can fit on the screen. Now sure I would like to be able to play a multi platform game that looks just as good on my Wii U as on other platforms but as long as it is there then I don’t care. EA will jump on the Wii U bandwagon once the WIi U has a very strong consumer base which is around 10 million or so minimum. There was a funny saying I heard not too long ago: “Playing video games for graphics is like watching porn for the story”. Sylux I lolled at your saying haha that’s awesome, gotta remember that one. peeer “poor online/store” Yeah, not the first time I read about EA on this. EA are just pissed at Nintendo cause they refused to take their Origins plateform integrality…luckily for us. Steam is a much better plateform than Origins, I’d rather want to see Steam on the Wii U than that bullcrap Origins. rulqua I hope he enjoyed his job. Ninknowing EA is funny to me, The majority of their games have been scrapped out of the landfill lol, who gave this idiot the right to even put Nintendo in his mouth, one guy from Nintendo has more success than EA’s whole company. Not even Nintendo’s biggest rivals who can actually make some noise is going this far, but instead Nintendo is hearing a small noise coming from the local landfill EA. Linskarmo I’d think that from a business standpoint EA would support every console. They don’t have to do that, of course, but even then they should be praising what they like instead of trying to insult someone over a past grudge. Highly unprofessional. Squid EA is crap. I honestly don’t give one Oran berry about this guys opinion. videogamedude52 Well EA, If Nintendo Should have “done a Sega” then I believe that you guys at EA should “Pull a THQ” and go BANKRUPT!!! Neilandio “Nintendo are walking dead at this point” I laughed with that one. César Antonio Arias Velarde And I was planing to buy NFS Most Wanted… Guess who is going to download it in pirate bay for the pc xD Alec Rowson See… I know this seems like justice, but it’s not. You’re just hurting the devs at Criterion… EA is HUGE, they’re not even going to feel it. jay Yes pirating is wrong. But there’s more Nintendo fans than fifa or nfs fans. So boycotting EA will hit them hard. Oh yeah did i mention 360/ps fans don’t like them either? Heck they’re “The Worst Company” in the world so no one likes them. We should ALL boycott them and give them a piece of mind. Let them know Nintendo fans ain’t no one to F*** WITH!! -The Super Smash Bros. Alec Rowson Even if all “Nintendo fans” boycott EA, Battlefield 4 is still going to sell millions on PC/PS4/Nextbox. The next FIFA and Madden will still sell millions… it’s not going to hit EA hard, it’s going to hit devs like Criterion hard. EDIT: It’s a crappy situation, I know… you don’t want to give EA your money and that’s understandable, but they won’t be the victims… and even if you take EA down, all those devs go with them anyway. jay The point isn’t to bring their sales to 0. No one can do that. The point is to kick ass and do as much damage possible. The devs will most likely keep making games. EA doesn’t hold a patent on game development. Alec Rowson But they do own developer studios which will go long before the execs at EA see even a fraction of a loss. Manuel Alberto Not helping! César Antonio Arias Velarde I like criterion =( But I wont give any money to EA. Alec Rowson It’s also important to consider that if the WiiU is a profitable platform to develop for, EA is going to have a harder and harder time saying no. If you don’t buy NFS, you’re just proving their point that their games won’t sell on WIiU. Gabe Hoffman Reading this clown’s posts is seriously making me consider selling my NFS Most Wanted Wii U and I bought that just to support Criterion. I hope EA has a brain and fires this idiot post haste Aleksander Esentals https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=-bNCGR1D9WE Ony Lel, EA. *shrug* Bob Singh Nintendo Fan: EA is Crap zhenyaivan Welp, now that’s a “strong relationship” that Nintendo and EA has… wonder what Nintendo thinks about EA? It’s like Ea is obsessed with Nintendo. Yuma Tsukumo This is so unprofessional. Then again, this is coming from the worst company in Amercia for 2 years running. jay This moron pretty much locked in a 3rd year for EA. John Garretson Below is an e-mail I have forwarded on to EA. I encourage all Nintendo enthusiasts and Wii U early adopters to forward similiar communications to EA until such time as we once again see support for Nintendo’s consoles: To whom it may concern, I realize that this e-mail may not be addressed to the correct department but your website does not provide an alternate e-mail address in order to contact your organization and provide feedback. As a consumer, it is highly disappointing to have endured witnessing EA’s disrespect for the Nintendo brand over the past several months. Due to EA’s decision to ignore development and publishing of software for Nintendo’s next generation Wii U system as well as classless, false and incendiary comments made by senior EA personnel regarding Nintendo and the Wii U, I will no longer be purchasing any product branded with an EA logo, to include games developed or published by 1st or 3rd party partners of EA. Further, I will be sharing this sentiment with as many potential EA consumers as I can through every communication resource available to me. There are 3,000,000 early adopters of the Wii U who now have reason to feel slighted by your company and I will be encouraging as many as I can reach to boycott your products on any other platform they may currently be in possession of. I realize I am only one of many, but I can reach a few, who in turn can reach a few. At the end of the day, our total number may not be relevant to such a large organization as EA, but it may at least provide awareness that your company’s blatant disrespect has not only soured your reputation amongst gamers but has also cost you sales as well. Thank you for your time and attention, John Garretson Nintedward Wow. It’s like a Boxing glove. You open the email and POW this letter hits you in the face xD. Excellently written. Petri Agreed. I’m planning on closing my Origin account, and removing that spyware from my PC for good. I hope I can get my non EA games to Steam.. jay That’s a good start. I will close mine too. Bob Wilkerson I canceled my Origin Account as well. Andreas Sunde You should ask Valve about it, maybe siggest that they – for a limited time – give away free download codes for any game you have on origin which is also on Steam, and advertise that, to make more people abandon origin. It’s worth a shot, and if successfull, might really show EA how pissed people are at them. Darkness I can’t find their contact information how did you email them? Nintendo4life I sent them the same thing and have about 50 other joining in..Time to see EA fall jay We should all do it and call ourselves the “Super Smash Bros”. We will boycott every company who disrespects Nintendo and make our name KNOWN. We will also not take any shit from biased websites or reviewers. We will email/tweet/post on walls and give these companies a piece of our mind. United under Nintendo. -The Super Smash Bros. Darkness Not a bad idea. when you see Darkness on anything gaming related you know its me jay We should all link up. unite and let these devs/websites know that Nintendo fans ain’t no one to F*** WITH!! We’ve taken enough, It’s time to fight back!!! Darkness I like how you used link there lol. Was there a pun intended? Manuel Alberto SUPER SMASH BROTHERS, UNITE!!! angel can i get the email Nintendo4life IR@ea.com angel fuck yeah im doing this Silent Great mind! What better way to hurt a company than hurting its pockets. Johnny Star You’re not hurting EA’s pockets people, THEY DROPPED DEVELOPMENT FOR WII U GAMES, THEY HAVE NO MONEY TIED INTO THE SYSTEM!!! You can’t hurt them by not purchasing something from them they don’t make!! Andreas Sunde You seem to forget that many people have more than one console… I will certainly not buy anything else from EA on my PS3, nor any of their games out on the U. If I do, I will buy used, and rather send some money diretly to the devs. Bob Wilkerson This is a great idea… I think I will do the same.. Their attitude towards Nintendo is only one of the many reasons I am boycotting EA. Any other email addresses anyone has found besides IR@ea.com?? I am not a stock holder but this is the only one I can find StockholderCommunications@EA.com Also maybe it is just me but EA’s site seems really slow and I have had pages time out on me. Maybe someone is giving them a nice DDOS attack as a present for their piss poor services. Bob Wilkerson To whom it may concern, The recent twitter commentary by one of your senior engineers has solidified my position to personally boycott any game published under the EA label or any of its affiliates. I have literally purchased almost every Need For Speed game from the original for PC through the latest Most Wanted and being a fan of the series I am willing to give that up as I cannot support a company that deceives its customers and makes outrageous claims to try and justify its lack of support of one gaming platform over another. I have purchased and played many EA branded titles over the years and once thought that EA was one of the best gaming publishers in the world. Unfortunately with recent failures like the launch of the latest SimCity claiming that online only was required for processing and EA’s recent position with Nintendo I have decided that EA is no longer a company I can support. I can tell you I speak for millions of members of the gaming community and it is actually rather sad that executives cannot see that their business practices are the reason for the declined profits of EA and why EA has been voted the Worst Company in America two years in a row. I am unsure if this is due to the arrogance of EA’s executives or if they are just that naive. I will be sharing my position with as many gamers as I can and using the exact commentary of EA employees and other information showing how EA intends to do business that has no interest of the gamers which are the reason EA is even a company. I sincerely hope that sometime in the future EA will realize the error of its ways and start making games for the gamers in mind and in the proper way but until that time I will not be giving any of my money. I thank you for your time and consideration. Bob Wilkerson Jamie Clabon I knew my 16 email accounts would come in handy Johnny Star I don’t think they’re too concerned with you not purchasing EA games for the Wii U, remember, they dropped support of the Wii U. If anyone thinks this is going to scare EA into making games, they’re dead wrong. You have a bunch of Wii U fans mad at EA, I’m betting EA expected this. You threaten that you won’t purchase a game that they never put money in to develop for the Wii U, don’t think that’s going to hurt their pockets. Chris Woods WELL THEN Nintendo4life I tweeted this sob and told him what i thought and like i said before i will never buy another EA game..Ubisolf i can forgive..But EA i will not thisguyjustdidthat There must be some form of legal action against this guy. Like slander Sylux Many comments to read but I just wanted to add “if” EA is so great then why are “ALL” EA games sold for 29,99 in games stores (including mass effect, FIFA and dead space 3)? On top of that they claim WiiU is worse then 360, with that statement they not only ditch nintendo’s WiiU but also Microsofts Xbox360. Then if I look at Pikmin 3 and even early screens of Mario and sonic winter olympics, deus ex: directors cut and nfs all these games look better then PS360 not by MUCH though (except deus ex and nfs that is, which look waaaaay better then their counter parts, same can be said for pikmin but it has no counterparts on PS360) but definitely better. So are you mad EA? Or are you affraid to innovate? Maybe it’s to difficult and you prefer to play it safe? To safe that is. Anyway last EA game I played was wrestlemania on the N64. Josh Winston Everyone hammer twitter with his name and the photo this is absurd of EA send this to everyone you know Silent Nothing new. jay lol i was just thinking this. Repost it under that ugly cunt that said “RIP Nintendo” lol Magnus Eriksson Really cool guy this one. Using ugly words as “cunt” and “ugly” about people he never met just because they view things different. Internet surely makes a lot of tough people… John Raybell so what grow the hell up, he just said cunt and ugly, are you five. get over it WORDS ARE JUST WORDS, you must be one of those church type. Magnus Eriksson nope John Raybell Well in anycase dont be a cunt lol jk. i had to. but no really Im not calling you names nor talking shit 🙂 david jarman Oh and I guess defamation is cool to. You know they made him pull that down because Nintendo now has solid ground for a law suite. Go ahead! Argue me on this and all show you how you’re wrong. Magnus Eriksson Well, it IS crap. It sells like crap and everyone thinks its crap, then it makes it crap. Sorry that it might hurt your feelings, but you are the one who just must have to live with it. Silent Whatever floats your boat. It is your opinion and I respect it. Just that. An opinion. Miles Phillips Just because something has been selling bad does not make it a bad product especially when people are asked they say they havent bought one because lack of large 1st party and 3rd party games not becuase it is bad. Xbox 360 and Ps3 didn’t really start to take off until the big 1st party games came out, that doesn’t mean the systems where bad just that people didn’t see a big enough reason to switch from there current consoles to the newer ones. Sure there where alot of people who bought them early on but people really flocked when games like Halo 3 and heavenly sword came out. And all the things he listed where not true or have been proven untrue. Daniel Gonzalez Your logic is so backwards. PS3 and 360 sold like crap as well when it first released. So I suppose those were crap too. Boy, people like you are stubborn to the core or can’t handle the facts. Chris Heskin I know right? Silent This list could go on, I just gave up and realized that Nintendo is not going anywhere. Why argue with the trolls? They are mini-pachters Manuel Alberto Whoa dude! Slow down! I know Patcher isn’t exactly a big Nintendo fan, but he has given us some good points from times to times. And besides, if he hates Nintendo, he wouldn’t have bought the WiiU! (Even if it was just so he could play Bayonneta 2. But hey, everyone has their own likes and dislikes. Right?) Silent Dont you realize the trolls agree with EVERYTHING negative about Nintendo? Thus the title, trolls. Manuel Alberto Yeah, yeah. I know. ronin4life The photo needs updating. Their stocks went back up. It should now say something like:”EA ditched them that one time?” Silent The list is so long I got lazy and stopped updating it it. Frank Third time in a row? Frankie This is from like 2 days ago, why are you reporting it now? John Raybell Because Wiiudaily is late on everything! I always read about these things first days before on IGN or Gameinformer. Not that Im putting this site down, they are just a little slow at times getting news out. Starfoxguy EA is just mad that Nintendo would not let them use Origin on NFS Most Wanted. EA can’t respect the fact that Nintendo is just now into online gaming this generation. That is no reason to call a system trash. So Bob, if you’re reading this, GET OVER IT!!!!! GuardiansFan actually…i bought the game last week and i couldnt even play NFS most Wanted until i signed up with Origin (which is complete BS) and that was after i had to wait for an update to even play really less powerful than an Xbox 360, wtf? Petri Xbox fanboy maybe? jay “The Wii U is crap” ….Even though its the most advanced console today…. Clel Yeah, they pretty much destroyed any chance of healing their already suffering relationship with Nintendo. shoeses47 Just because its advanced doesn’t mean its great. peeer Just because EA don’t support the system doesn’t mean its crap. jay ouch! got em! jay They mean it in a technical sense, so you admit they’re wrong. Where have you been the past 50 EA articles? Idontknow Walking Dead is a hit, blatantly just a compliment in disguise. Mark Thom LLLLLLLLOOOOOOOLLLLLLLLLL WOW! Alex Leb If you actually look into it, it seems to be a conversation between friends. Unfortunately he works for EA so it comes off a lot more aggressive then it should. He should have been a little smarter. Inzanoflex watch out EA for messing with nintendo, Captain Falcon is watching your moves Captain Falcon You sure as hell bet I am. Guest EA deserves a Flacon punch to the face Darkness Yeah this was my comment, but I messed up on the GIF 😛 Darkness EA deserves a Falcon Punch to the face Manuel Alberto LOL! Good one! Lonewolf Look who talks… there are other game developers who makes better business with WII U Guest Hey EA… .l. (-_-) .l. Sora Morp EA have no rigth to say anything. They suck now all they’ve got is Fifa this fifa that which is the same nowadays. I liked fifa up to fifa 12 don’t get me wrong but it’s just a rubbish rehash of the same thing now. I just don’t care about Fifa I’m going over to PES thank you. MetroidZero I don’t give 2 craps, Sob Bummerwill. Infamizmikep Who cares? You? What about you? You over there, you care? No? Me either! EA sucks! djvalbnc hahahaha Mario and Zelda as PS4/Xbox exclusives. seriously? no way wait let me laugh a little more hahahahaha. Bananapwnz “EA is crap” Miles Phillips The thing I don’t quite grasp is how a company such as EA allow such unprofessional behavior from a senior member of EA(ill bet one of the original EA members). EA needs to show that regardless of there dealings with Nintendo or any other company being unprofessional on any level will result in immediate termination and warning to future employers of there piss poor actions that jeopardize the companies future dealings with Nintendo. His ass should be fired. john So a guy working for the the company that won the golden shit award two consecutive years and running is dissing Nintendo. I’m thinking they just don’t want to learn how to develop games on that system when they can still make money on last-gen systems and not work as hard. Sure, maybe I don’t understand or agree with everything Nintendo’s been doing, but they’ve been trying to improve their own products, admit their mistakes, and guarantee us more content in the future. I don’t know much about EA, but I have a feeling if they were doing what Nintendo did, they wouldn’t have been deemed the worst company in America again. DragonSilths EA helped make the Wii U’s online including the E-Shop EA wanted it cause they liked it….Nintendo said no…now he says its crap? Yet they wanted it? Lololol John Raybell No, EA wanted to use Origin , EA didn’t help with the E-shop, would be the first I have ever heard of that Glovechicken First they lie to us and then tell us that our console is crap. Can they just let the real game company make games and fuck off. Unbiased_ Gamer GeekDaddy EA also can’t program or engineer for crap. There is a reason they are votes the worst company in the world. This guy is just one more moron. Derek this is coming from the company who got the award for worst company on america on the consumerists list RonnieMexico I beli3v3 diz guy cuz h3 is REAL Chris Wells coming from the worst company in the world, I couldn’t give a flying ****. Their games suck….the only ones that are good are from studios they bought out like DICE. Steve And I’m reading this from the company voted worst company of the Year for two consecutive years… david jarman I’m just going to keep posting these just so trolls and ea employs that monitor these sites can read them. EA isn’t the only publisher/developer in this world. http://mynintendonews.com/2013/03/20/project-cars-developer-says-wii-u-screams-innovation/ http://wii.mmgn.com/News/activision-praises-wii-u-graphical-reali The games will only get better and better. John Raybell You missed a some, go find the ones about the trine 2 devs and need for speed most wanted devs. Glad someone has brains, and posted this 🙂 david jarman Oh I did post them! In earlier comments! Even posted crytek a lead developers comment about cryengine 3 runs beautiful on wii u. I posted shin’en, frozenbyte, and few others earlier and will continue cause there’s more. 🙂 John Raybell Ok then, well awesome 🙂 Your on top of things. Jon lol, did he take a look of his own company in a while? enigmaxtreme Does EA hate Nintendo so much they would rather COMPETE against as a third party then work with them. Does EA really think they could compete with Nintendo’s mountains of cash, numerous IPs and rabid fanbase, not to mention Nintendo could become an EA of themselves and adsorb other third party devs. D-Man I didn’t really read the article, but that picture on the top is hilarious, especially Donkey Kong! Levi Johansen Nintendo I know, I have all of their consoles and major releases. But EA… what is that? Never heard of… John Raybell EA has there very own troll, how cute. lol. Whats funny about this is EA the ones who published need for speed and the devs that made need for speed talked about the wiiu being better and being able to do things with that game that were closer to its PC counter part, so how is this? when the console is weaker then an xbox? easy!!!! Its not!! lol Trine and need for speed and black ops devs stated they were able to do more with the Wii U. Im sure there are other devs that state the same thing. This Bob Summerwill is so much like a 14 year old troll is kinda strange, Is his son using his twitter account or something? Michael Jurado a 14 year old using his account that would actually clear up a lot of issues XD John Raybell It would, when i was reading his twitters I just didn’t understand how somebody that was 14 years old has the job he does. That’s what I just cant figure out LMAO. Hugh Quinn how would you know, you work at EA. Creative canvas Just for saying that, EA has lost all of my respect. The fact of the matter is the Wii u is probably more advanced then any other concole at this point. (Sure Xbox has Kinnect but who thought of that first? Nintendo with the wii balance board) EVERY THING NINTENDO DOES OTHER COMPANIES COPY. Nintendo thought up motion control, ps3 did playstation move. Nintendo did the wii balance board, Xbox did Kinnect. Now nintendo has done the touch screen idea and now playstation and Xbox will copy it. Think up your own damn ideas for once other companies and stop copying the number 1 company in the world. If EA can’t see that every other company is copying nintendo they are blind. Chris Heskin playstation move is nothing like Wii U motion plus, i swear those stupid wands are just sitting next to peoples PS3s collecting dust. Andrei Gdo Abarca The tank tank tank! Game in Wii U is actually more fun than games i have in my ps3 and 360(and i have a lot and newest) btw if u don’t have a wii u dont comment complain anf shut up.(mostly are fail trolls) Michael Jurado other than the strange steering in tank tank tank I love it XD nin-10-doughfan EA really hates you nintendo! Ducked This guy is a 6 year old René Park Triolo One would think that a big company like EA only employed professional people, but making comments like that only proves the obvious… jealousy of Nintendo and other great game developers and of course lack of talent to develop quality games. Another reason why EA keeps bashing Nintendo is because they know that no matter what they do, they will never be able to buy Nintendo and run it into the ground… It would most likely be the other way around. Despite hating piracy, as it ruins the gaming industry, I really hope that pirates around the world would make a special target out of EA and put them out of business, so that they could have some of their own medicine. We will have a lot of great games on the U both from Ninty but also from third parts… I know i will buy RE: Revelations, Mario Kart, Pikmin 3, Ninja Gaiden 3 and a lot more… And I will use Netflix on the U as well as keep making my drawings on Miiverse. Long live Nintendo… EA go to HELL Jamal Augustine Come on EA we all know why you are upset with Nintendo its because they said no to origin being a main part of Wii U. Unbiased$Gamer Like it or not he’s somewhat right. I love nintendo and have since childhood and i commend them for being one of the most influential and innovative companies of all time but. what perplexes me is how a company with such a vast amount of money and experience continues to fall behind sony and microsoft every generation. by all means there hasn’t been an appealing library of games on a nintendo console since n64 and lets be honest no matter how powerful any next gen console will be what matters most is good quality games. CyanideInsanity Its M$ and sony appealing to the masses(OMG HD short attention span), while nintendo is attempting innovation recently, Whether for good or bad. I can’t comment about the 6th gen because I don’t know anything about the hardware, the 7th gen is where I believe the innovation started. The wii attempted to give the world motion controls, while the xbox360 and ps3 picked the idea up for a separate accessory, not one that comes with all consoles. PS360 had pretty much no innovation, just better visuals. The wii u was nintendo’s attempt at both increased visuals and innovation. Them coming first this gen gives them the disadvantage of not being able to observe competitors. Had the wii u not gone first, the ps4 and 720 could’ve been closer to the actual wii u, then we are being led to believe. In that situation the wii u could have even been in the same position as ps360 compared to the wii; dominating in terms of hardware power. Then there’s third parties. I don’t actually know anything about it, but I have heard nintendo isn’t the best with handling third parties. Unbiased$Gamer Yea I guess you’re right FlyingBoat On the plus side though, that pictures pretty cool stealth20k he was wrong and likely got fired angel nintendo should make a game with older link, they already made young link and regular link now for 35 year old link with more hardcore look, the plot should be, link goes to the future instead of the past Manuel Alberto Shheesshh! Why do Sony and Microsost work with companies like this? Oh that’s right! They’re just as horrible EA! (No offense PS3 and Xbox360 fans). But sireously, Sony copies Nintendo’s technology(example: Wii remotes) and Microsoft copies Sony! But at least they were able to create so mething unique out of the sensor bar! So they were just inspire by the Wii’s motion sensor. So they really didn’t copied the Wii’s technoligy. So peope, can’t you see that!? John Raybell As much as I would love to see a Zelda or mario on my Pc, i would hate to see nintendo go down, but we don’t have to worry about that, they aren’t going anywhere, they make profits and that’s what matters, the only reason the xbox and playstation are alive today is because they have some very rich guys throwing there cash into it, they just want to exist, just look at microsoft, if bill gates wasn’t funding the xbox, there wouldn’t be an Xbox360, sony and micrsoft are at a constant loss. Last time I checked that not what you want from a business. You want to be profitable like nintendo is. Maybe that’s why everyone has an issue with them, THEY ARE JEALOUS and want what Nintendo has. They want profits and they want to make games as polished as nintendo does, but can never seem to do either or, So this is how they handle things, just like EA has. lol Baconfat23 These people are such idiots. I’ll buy a console to play games, they can buy their console for power and they can get shitty games that don’t even reach to Nintendo’s quality. Nintendo should have done a Sega? Yet they have more money than Sony/Microsoft. This guy knows nothing. CyanideInsanity I wouldn’t say their walking dead yet. For me, that would be after seeing what happens when their 9th gen console launches. They sacrificed equivalent HD visuals for motion controls last time. This time they attempted controller innovation along with better visuals than last gen; then they also went and launched significantly earlier than their competitors, giving M$ and sony a chance to beef-up their hardware if needed. If nintendo takes this experience and has the same outcome next time, then I’ll say they have failed. Justin Gray If EA really thought this they would never had put their “reputation” on the line by having Nintendo use their servers only. What has happened is they didn’t get what they want and now they are throwing baby fits over it. Nintendo knew EA was crap and, instead of publicly humiliating them they simply didn’t do any deals with them in private and that was that. Josh Winston If EA can make frostbite for iOS and android they can support wiiu it’s bull Mason742 EA claims frostbite 3.0 won’t work, which will run on ps4/720, frostbite mobile is different and so is frostbite 1.0 and 2.0 Nicholas Perkins Okay ea the shittest company in the world devmiles i own a wii-u, bought it at release.. i must say i’m not really impressed so far with nintendo’s output of games, their tactics etc… but i believe some magic will come later on. i’m a bit mad though that it all takes such a long time to come along… we don’t want VC titles that we have played already, we want fresh stuff. There was absolutely no need to purchase a wii-u at release ..same as the 3ds release which was completely horrible. every week big fuzz is created on some new VC title or rumor of pikmin 3… i absolutely don’t give a shit. i believe the hardware nintendo has chosen makes 3rd party developers not want to readjust their engines or work with nintendo..basically the same as earlier gen systems. you buy nintendo for nintendo games… it’s absolutely lacking output at this moment. nintendo should have thought of things like playing your 3ds games via the wii-u on tv or just transfer the entire library VC games at once.. it all takes ages for them to startup. i don’t say the wii-u is crap but sony and microsoft are on their way and will set new standards, we will be amazed and we need a proper reply from nintendo asap, there are no killer games right now…it’s a bloody shame and the system deserves it John Raybell Your looking at things all the wrong way, first off thats how every console launch is, get used to it, 2nd there is a reason to buy those systems at launch, couple reasons first off your going to buy it any ways and more importantly SUPPORT, if everyone looked at things like you then they wouldnt have gotten support and so they wouldnt have even done as well as they have right now, things would be far far worse. and there are enough games on the console to hold you over till new ones come out. New Super Mario bros “Killer if you love classic mario Mass effect 3-yeah its EA but who gives a shit its a game to play and you are a gamer Killer if you liked the first two Black ops 2 “Killer if your into COD Injustice- AWESOME GAME “Killer game” as you put it Need for speed most wanted-Killer if you like this game and also knowing its better on the wii u then any other console graphics and frame rate wise Lego city “pretty awesome lego game, and I have disliked Lego games Batman “Killer batman game plus new features Assassin’s Creed III plus DLC KILLER Darksiders II Pretty good game Ninja Gaiden 3: Razor’s Edge Scribblenauts Unlimited Sonic and All-Stars Racing Transformed Trine 2: Director’s Cut ZombiU 007 Legends http://www.ign.com/wikis/wii-u/Wii_U_Launch_Games_(US) http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/List_of_Wii_U_games And 3ds http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/List_of_Nintendo_3DS_games I doubt you have played all of these, or even all the good ones from these lists, and soon there will be more, as far as launch’s go face it Nintendo actually had a pretty good one, with much much much more to come, the only way there isnt enough games for you to play is if your not playing them. Waiting on more Wii U games, then go play your 3DS which has a bunch of games now. stop crying 🙂 John Raybell In other words devmiles, Here’s a Tissue :). John Raybell . david jarman Seem like there are more who are for wii u, then those that are against. Here’s some more articles on what they have to say: http://wiiudaily.com/2013/01/frozenbyte-praises-nintendo-titles-for-revealing-a-consoles-hidden-power/ http://m.neogaf.com/showthread.php?t=494849 John Raybell missed your comma there. After “for”. I almost thought you were saying more it seems like more are against. might want fix that for others 😛 david jarman Thank you sir. John Raybell Yep no problem 🙂 Guhtere “Wii U is less powerful than the XBOX360” RIIIIGGGGHHHHHT! AND THE GAMECUBE WAS LESS POWERFUL THAN THE PS1! Frank This is more controversial than Nintendo’s Content ID Claim, and that’s upsetted LPers Nintendofreak they can say watever the fuck they want to say but its better to be called shit that choosing origin….n y is samus the only one not shirt less Cadrion What’s a laugh is how these companies claim Nintendo’s dead/inferior, but Nintendo just keeps making good fun stuff. At the same time, this is an opinion that is coming from an employee that works for the owner of “Worst Company” awards. jdrch He’s right. John Raybell whos right? not Bob, because its not fact, what is fact is the wii u can do more then the ps3 and xbox360, all he is doing is trolling and lying out of his ass. Bob Summerwill=14 year old troll, and people who think hes right or agrees with him is fucking brain dead or in a coma or better yet live on a food supply of dog shit. You are what you eat as the saying goes 🙂 ninjamik A much more accurate and relevant headline, would have been….. .. most of the gaming world “EA is CRAP”…… where is that article infact?….. or how about…..it’s about time EA did a SEGA!………and made some good games! ;P or even……I definately think this may be EA’s last generation and they may be forced to be (a) memory only…….;P pathetic behaviour from a pathetic company! ever since being young playing shit sports sims on Amigas, Mega Drives n Snes’ when the “EA SPORTS its in the game” bullshit came up in super cheesy Hollywood Accent…I always thought!…. yes that is the problem!!!!….it’s in the game ;D ps said much more simply below but saw it late and thought id rant anyway!! 🙂 jan Fuck EA wiiu is the best.. TAKANYAN We’ll he is paid by EA. Since he is using twitter, #Summerwillfall (I didn’t realize what the picture was until I saw link. Marios mad) mister turtlehead Those really are some dumb statements. They should have stopped making systems? Why, cause the original Wii was a huge hit? Making zelda/mario ps exclusives does nothing for nintendo… those tweets are idiotic Joel Further proof that most people see Nintendo as the new cool thing to hate. DragonSilths New cool thing? People have been hating on Nintendo since the GC days. John Madsen EA is garbage there games engine outdated there online servers garbage EA needs to learn this motto “EA where we take features away that made our software great and give you the customer crap” Dominic Coradazzi Hmm… reminds me of the Adam Orth debacle a month or two back (stupid employee uses internet to vent some steam) ‘cept I feel like EA’s just gonna promote this guy instead of firing him FlyingBoat while on the issue, i really like the wii u eshop. remember the wii shop channel? it was so colourless and boring, the loding times werent great and the interface wasnt very inspired. it could well have been my least favourite thing about the wii. wii u eshop however, is so nice and pretty, its a pleasure to browse and i check it all the time because its so easy to use. GuardiansFan wasn’t EA named one of the top worst companies to work for? Sounds like this guy is where he deserves to be 🙂 Rafael Rocha EA is horrible. I have a wii u and have owned many consoles. Wii u has been my favorite and it will only get better. Gamers need to wake up and stop buying empty FIFA and CoD sequels. Nintendo’s games have tremendous value. super Mario world and metroid are about 20 years old and are better than anything ea has released. People need to stop worrying about Nintendo, they make great video games and the hardware on wii u and 3ds is top notch. Manuel Alberto Call of Duty is Activision. Not EA. Luke Wilson and on that day not a single fuck was given Gael Gomez Ea is on my list BGhp EA what a troll of a company Clairvius oh EA when will you learn the sad fact of the matter is Nintendo will survive on only there first party games they never where 3rd party they didn’t need them then and won’t need them now when a huge company like Nintendo allows you to get on the band wagon you make it happen they can say Wii U wont run there games and wont display the graphics and its “Crap” needless to say i bought the system for Mario, Zelda, and the other 100 Nintendo exclusives love them or hate them Nintendo has the most system exclusive games if you want them gatta play them here you don’t stir shit water EA it always makes it worse Guest If anyone is tired of seeing negative articles when just trying to see Wii U news and instead of giving credit by caring what publishers like EA think should check out http://playeressence.com/ . They have news/articles from Playstation news to xbox news but mainly Wii U news and they don’t cover the negative news as far as not giving other writers/journalist the fame they try and get by saying negative untrue things about Nintendo. Should definately at least check out the site. Daniel Gonzalez Senior software engineer? If that’s true then how can you call the Wii U less powerful if visuals in the recent NFS are far more superior over 360 and ps3? Someone get this guy some warm milk in a bottle. EA=Egotistical Asswipes Edward Dudley Looks like EA is trying to be politically correct because Bob Summerhill took down his tweet. So EA doesn’t want to make games for the WiiU because of these kind of opinions but don’t want to state them up front. If you really feel like this console is underpowered say it out right and don’t hold back, you have nothing to lose, right? Actually they do because truthfully you’re pissing off a whole generation of gamers. Nintendo has the seniority and should be respected as such. Take a look at the other company’s that have made bad decisions you might find yourself in the same boat soon. THQ if you don’t know what I’m talking about. Petri Being underpowered did not stop them making games to Wii. I think, for half-assed ports, some of those games did well enough on Wii (no actual knowledge of EA games on Wii, but making an assumption on what I have seen on Wii U). And I think gap between Wii U and next-gen twin sisters, is smaller than it was with Wii and last-gen twins. Stenaven For my people, fellow Wii U and Nintendo supporters. Will you join and do the same? Link Slayer There just telling how they feel. I mean I think the Wii U is dead. I really wanted to buy a Nintendo console were I can play Nintendo games and the big 3rd party games. I cant afford two systems. I sold my Wii U. It seems Sony will be the way to go nice exclusives and nearly every 3rd party game! I’m converted. Jonn McNally EA is crap. I never buy their “games.” Adam Fox how can EA say anything about the Wii U being crap when they won the Worst Company in America TWO years in a row and I can’t wait for them to win it for the THIRD year in a row! And they got some crappy companies to go up against…I mean….think of the people that hate WalMart! Also folks that hate GameStop…and yet EA takes that “Worst Company In America” award not once…but TWICE!!!….I don’t give a rats butt about EA…..they stopped being awesome back in the SNES/Genesis days anyway Jamie Clabon If anything, this is good news. EA has been voted worst company in the world 2 years running, so it’s obvious that hardly anyone likes them. If you don’t like someone, you tend not to agree with anything they say. Imagine this scenario “Hey, EA says that the WiiU is crap” “Screw EA, I don’t like them. If anything, EA is crap” or something along those lines. As implausible as that may sound in text, I’ve seen this kind of conversation before. Katzenoma Oh he really thjnks that the chisen worst company of the world can talk about what is crap? That just made me laugh xD better staying in the 90s than being such a piece of sh… like EA Kirzan *worst company in America* that’s strangely worse than BP after the oil spill which destroyed an ecosystem. Or worse than Bank of America which twists people into getting poorer every day. You people will believe anything FOX News tell you. derty FUCK EA! That is all. jlenoconel The Wii U will fail because of people like this putting it down, rather than giving the system a chance. Everyone is hyping up the PS4, next Xbox, which means that other players won’t get a look in during this generation of the console wars. Its sad because I would have bought a Wii U by now, but haven’t been it seems like its dead in the water. I don’t care about raw power of a console that much. I mean, how much “better” do graphics have to get in games? Its getting ridiculous. Petri I know there is many who agree with his opinions, which to I can only say, I do not agree with these particular opinions. But it is not as much of what he said, but the way he said it. If you think that kind of a comment is ok for a senior member of a large corporation, then it is my opinion, that you’re stupid. Man in his position, represents his employer 24/7, whether he likes it, or not. I think he himself realized that, since he was quick about removing his tweets. This is exactly same level of immaturity, as was shown by Mark Rein, and poor choice of words, as was shown by Adam Orth. HypocritesRROD “This EA Engineer is Crap” WarioForever If Wii U is crap, then what is EA? Himalayas of crap? Jan People (EA…) still complaining about “lack of power” but we all remember the Gamecube, without any doubt the most powerful console of his time. Where was EA? A SNES Day Off This isn’t just my reaction to the original Tweet, but EA have for too long been reliant on their past reputation. I remember many years ago that the company was very well respected both in terms of its operations and products, but they seem to have become terribly incompetent. They lack innovation and quality. Krzysztof Bobkowski No doubt, Wii U will be the least powerful of next gens, but I can see huge potential in it. Nintendo’s handhelds on average have life span of 5 years. That means the next handheld will be coming out in 2016. By that time and with current Wii U specs, it will be possible to unify both systems into one. That means, potentially, we could be having fully functioning wii u handheld. And just like with iPhone and iPad, if I bought a game on one device, I can play it on the other one, using the same account, it could be possible with Nintendo’s devices. Will it be 3ds, smartphone or tablet like console, I don’t know, but something tells me, that’s what gonna happen… and it’ll be huge 🙂 David Crochunis this is very uncommon for any developer to be so against any system and outwardly criticize it in such strong terms. I understand the whole origin Debacle, but i wonder what incentives other console makers gave EA to take such a stand against Wii U. I smell a conspiracy Nexium While I also hate EA, I have to say that there might be some small amount of truth to this. Nintendo makes awesome games, but I feel like the consoles itself is lacking; they have a cheap feel to them – and while I dont care that much about the hardware I think the software could be a lot better than it sometimes is. And why do they have to put cameras on everything which I personally think is a waste of money especially when the cameras are really bad ( 3ds f.ex) Wish they could just keep it simple!. If only the consoles was the same quality as their games.. I guess you can’t have everything:p MujuraNoKamen At least no Nintendo console has ever red-ringed 😀 Kirzan No they just caught fire. Or bricked on the launch update. But keep ignoring everything. You’ll go far in life. MujuraNoKamen Someone doesn’t understand humour, and thinks being a dick to people online will get him far in life. Kirzan So you’re still going to ignore that Nintendo products actually physically fail? I’ll have what he’s having! Cause them must be amazing drugs. MujuraNoKamen When did I say no Nintendo console has ever failed? I said none have ever red-ringed in a little joke about how much more well-built Nintendo’s consoles are compared to others. Kirzan Oh, I’m sorry, I thought you were a smart person. Well of course Nintendo products don’t red ring because they don’t have a fucking ring. Are you THAT juvenile? “how much more well-built Nintendo’s consoles are compared to others.” No! They’re not! A red ring doesn’t endanger your house. A Wii catching fire does! It’s worse!!! MujuraNoKamen Can you show me where there was a massive issue with Wiis catching fire? I’ve not heard of it before and google has nothing on Wii’s spontaneous combustion. Was this a few isolated incidents that you’re making up just be inflammatory? because no one else seems to have heard of it – but please, I’m open minded, I’ll admit when I’ve made a mistake and would like you to educate me on this issue, show me where all this happened! Yes I’m fully aware no Ninty console has a ring but that was metaphorical as in Nintendo don’t build consoles to commit suicide after a year you idiot! And yes, Nintendo’s consoles are better built than others. peoples NESs still work perfectly, N64s after being dropped, bashed and used excessively still work 16 years later! whereas the 360 is famed for not lasting more than 2 years in a great number of cases. I’m sure on this site someone said they’ve had about 3 different 360s in 4/5 years due to RROD. Kirzan I’ve owned 2 360s. The first one I sold after a year and a half because I ran out of exclusives, and most games I would’ve gotten, I bought on PC. Never had a problem with it. Most of my friends that red-ringed had it red ring much before 2 years. I don’t know, man. I’ve owned a PS3 for at least 2 years (lost in a burglary) and I never had any issue. Maybe it’s just me that knows how to take care of a console. Maybe it’s just others that don’t. I mean, a LOT of people don’t understand basic electricity and how plugging something directly in the wall isn’t good. Most RRODs are due to power outages and power related issues. Get a good power bar = set for life. Ultimately, though, do people who don’t take care of expensive things really count? If so, yes, the 360 RROD a lot in the past. Because people don’t care about their goods. If not, no, it’s not the manufacturer’s fault if your house doesn’t have a lightning rod and you don’t have any measures to counter shorts and other power related issues. You’re right, I can’t seem to find any information anymore on Wiis catching fire. Could be me that’s completely delusional. Could be Nintendo pulling out a bad story. Who knows? I know for a fact me and a friend laughed at this, once. Now, Wii U’s bricking, plenty of sources for that. And it IS, a really DUMB issue. I mean, no one else but Nintendo touched its software. RRODs? Could be from an assembly line fault. The OS bricking the console? 100% on the OS developers. John Raybell cheap feel to them? lol, Nintendos hardware is pretty much indestructible. cant say that about sony or microsoft, those console break just looking at them, its why I have two half broke xbox360s and only one nintendo console ever, hand held included, never has nintendos stuff failed on me. Everyone I know that has a ps2-3 or an xbox-360 has to constantly send back hardware, or replace, or rebuild. I have lots of memories going to a friends house when I was little to only find the PS1 and PS2 taken apart in order to fix Lasers or attempt at fixing it, same goes with the xbox and xbox360. Hell we had an xbox360 pot tweaking party, HAHAHA goes to show just how sad the other company’s hardware is. Pot Tweaking is when your CD Rom can no longer read cds, and you have to take the drive out and adjust power levels. Basically its a must to know if you are an xbox360 owner lol. Nintendo since 1985 has made solid as hell hardware and still do it today. hell I can grab my NES from 1987 and it still works :). along with any other nintendo console ever made. nobody can say that about Microsoft or sony’s products. EVER Nexium I agree that the build quality has been really good up until the Wii and Wii U. Both those consoles have this squishy plastic feel to them. But it’s the software that worries me. You can’t deny that the Wii U loading times at launch was just ridiculous, how can something like that even get past quality control? John Raybell The PS3 was the same and the PS2, only difference is they are still that way after 6+ years. At least nintendo fixed that. Load times dont keep me from enjoying a great game anyways. This is what I was talking about to Discuss on how people like you come up with retarded points, as if they are really that big of a deal. The WiiU will do great, and so will nintendo Nexium Why do you keep bringing up other consoles? We’re discussing the Wii U. I hope the Wii U will be a success aswell, but I’m keeping judgment until I see what Nintendo and 3rd party developers can do with this new hardware. The gamepad only serving as some minimap and offscreen play can’t really justify it for me. John Raybell If you have read anything I had said you would know why I bring up “Past console launches”. You brought up things like “load times”,”quality control, and build quality, I was just pointing out that load times are fixed, and other consoles suffered from that but never recovered Nintendo actually did something about it. You talk like this is your first ever console, or Nintendo console. And the gamepad HAS done way more then that, with games already out. Im not even going to waste my time with you. Nexium It’s pretty clear to me now this is just fanboism. It’s impossible to have any meaningful discussion when all you do is go straight for the parts of my posts that are slightly negative towards Nintendo, and come up with arguments that doesnt make any sense. In a previous post you said something like ” the loading times are okey because I don’t mind them” Seriously? Yes, they patched the loading time issue. But it should not have been there in the first place, and is still not quite what you would expect in a 2013 system. You are acting like I have some kind of agenda, that I’m trying to promote other consoles or something. Relax I expected more. Why? Because this is Nintendo. MujuraNoKamen EA is crap, we all know the Wii U hate is because of the origin shit-storm. If your pissed off with Nintendo (because they had sense to stay away from origin) then fine but you don’t have to try and trash them, BS like “our game engines don’t run on Wii U” just make you look petty and ignorant. FUCK YOU!!! How is Wii U crap again? Oh right it’s less powerful than a 360?: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=6GxUMMGyZcM http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Shch7LNkVXw http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=u_fyOkrteqM Sure it is. Poor online/store? I just got Super Metroid for 30p, indie support on Wii U is amazing, Virtual console is fantastic, XBL doesn’t let you have classics like OoT and aLttP. I’m aware the EShop is a little sparse right now but it’ll get there soon (with GC games) do you think XBLA had Halo and Banjo Kazooie day 1? As for poor online it needs work but it’s free, Miiverse is fantastic, no screaming kids and great online games like CoD and MH3. A weird tablet, the weird one that has all the buttons like a normal controller and works in the same way? the weird tablet that lets me play Black ops, Resi and Super Metroid when the TV is in use? use a pro controller Ass-wad! and the gamepad’s ability to video chat, browse internet, play off TV etc makes it one of the best controllers ever. As for that “walking dead” part, the Wii U is currently struggling but it’s early days yet, and in it’s first couple of months it outsold what ps3 and 360 did in the same amount of time and would you call those failures? Nintendo are so rich they could flop for the next few decades and still sit comfortably so how are they dying? why should they pack in? Sony are the ones bleeding money, and I wish them luck with PS4 because if it has a slow launch like PS3 did then Sony could be in deep[er] shit. “Nintendo is still operating like it’s 1990” that’s why they’re only ones who ever do anything different is it! Why should Nintendo stop making consoles? what could have possibly made them consider that? even under N64 and Gamecube they were profitable and made a killing of pokemon and continued to put out masterpieces like Wind Waker and Metroid Prime. They made a fortune of Wii and mopped the floor with 360 & PS3 in terms of sales. DS is the best selling console ever, 3DS sets to top that, it has a fantastic game library and is killing Vita I’ll ask again why should Nintendo stop? they’re always making money, always making fantastic games why should they stop that? I like all the big 3 but when it all comes down to it Nintendo is king: they’re the most profitable, they have the most iconic & successful franchises, they make the best games, they’re doing something different the list goes on. I’ll say again we know this is just a petty feud about origin and rather than being man about it you’re trying to trash Nintendo with total BS, move on!!! sslamajama97 Dude, you’re my hero. Nintendo Rules This is the right time for Nintendo to develop sports titles for hardcore and make a better engine combining crazy wacky with serious and realistic. it shouldn’t be too hard for Nintendo to create games like those with of course that characteristic Nintendo signature. I’m sure the titles will be even more fun than EA’s. I was a FIFA series fan but EA messed up real bad this time. Nintendo please step up to them and break bad associations for good, and start developing specific games to fill this small gap. zimbambo LMFAO!!!!! Finally a developer has the guts to say what everyone was already thinking since the Wii U launch 6 months ago!!! He is 100% correct 350 bucks for a little bit better graphics than the 6 year old ps3?WTF!! The only 3rd party games that ever sell well on a nintendo system are CAPCOM games ie monster hunter etc!!! If Nintendo do not have an awesome E3 then it is game over for the wii u. Nintendo should just stick to handhelds who are the kings and always have been, stick to handhelds and release first party games for next gen and pc would make billions!!! Guest If it’s dead then why care? If this engineer truly thinks the Wii U is crap then you’d think he’d be more worried about developing software for the PS/XB instead of caring what N is or isn’t doing. From a PC perspective, the PS4 and new box are crap too and won’t be pushing the limits of current tech. To each his own. Jennero Rossi Probably some deal fell through for them so EA is taking it public. Plus not to mention since he is an engineer and probably been developing for PS4/720 which compared to the WiiU probably not very good in terms of specs. Problem here is that WiiU fans won’t get to see Star Wars games. sslamajama97 Yeah, EA’s just mad at Nintendo because they wouldn’t let them put their Origin service on the WiiU. Smart move, IMO. Besides, EA games suck anyway. Besides Sims and Madden, what else do they really have? John Raybell lol who cares, screw star wars games, so far pretty much all of them have been crap anyways, budget crap software star wars games, will live with out that crap. Hasn’t been a good star wars game for years, hell Shadow Of The Empire on the N64 was the last worth of shit one I can remember. Kirzan It’s awesome because your star wars games analogy applies to the Wii U LOL! Now maybe if Disney bought Nintendo we’d get somewhere. John Raybell um actually it doesnt, again your a fucking mornon. zimbambo Bye bye Wii U, bye bye Wii U!!! LOL sslamajama97 Come on, troll. You can do better than that. John Raybell BYE BYE TROLL!!! LOL 🙂 zimbambo The Wii U will look like the Wii when compared to the next gen consoles!!! Way to go Nintendo 350 bucks for 6 year old graphics!!! LMAO!! John Raybell well it wont be, graphics wise the gap will be much much smaller then the wii and xbox360ps3. Graphics wont be an issue for the WiiU combine that with new ways to play = WIN WIN. Its the only true next gen console, instead of just another update. people who buy the new xbox and ps4 will be playing the same games they have been playing for over 8 years, where as us WiiU owners will get to play new types of games, and games with different play mechanics and different experiences all together. That is what NEXT GEN means. ps4 and xbox are OLD GEN, same games same experiences, after 8 years with my xbox360 im tired of playing the same crap over and over, it was awesome for awhile, but grew so very fucking old. pretty tired of modern FPS games also, FPS was last gen, we need something NEW for gaming and the WiiU has the best chance of bringing that to us right now. 🙂 $39063977 agreed. except, to be a trully next gen console it has to have next gen games to play on it i.e. 3RD PARTY big buck AAA games. i don’t see how that’s going to happen with the way things are turning out. I’m beginning to sense that all you grown-ups supporting this console are somehow related with Big N, cause ur comments are sort of unrealistic. much like hearing Fills Aime lie to my face. next gen 3rd party games won’t be seeing a wiiu release, except a barely few that will be downscaled one way or another. John Raybell unrealistic like the wii being the best selling console in the WORLD, and the 3ds selling like crazy, and the DS owning smoking the psp, and nintendo being the only company making a profit, AGAIN. Yeah ok buddy lol Yeah i forgot games like Mad world,Monster hunter,Zeno blade, the conduit,zak and wiki. arent third party lol. at the end of wiis life cycle it actually got some pretty good third party support. and http://www.1up.com/do/blogEntry?bId=9082799 for even more. Dont worry the support will come as soon as Nintendo gets a AAA title out that sells consoles like mad 🙂 I have a PC for the games I cant get on the wiiu, so xbox and ps are pointless there exclusives are just more of the same shit anyways, nothing new there. zimbambo The fact is Nintendo got lucky with the Wii and thought they could release a lame tablet with HD and it would sell like hot cakes!!! The Wii U was Nintendo’s biggest ever console…the Wii U is Nintendo’s most epic fail console!!! John Raybell not really, it will be the number one selling console soon, its not even close to being a fail right now, and soon its going to take off. after Christmas everyone will be singing a different tune Lev M LOL go look at his job description then look at what EA has bought to the table, fifa, Madden &… Oo yeah that’s right nothing else, Fifa sells in Europe & Madden sells in north america, they need to come out with that sims 4 & quick Streakin-Cobra Well I guess no more Sims on a Nintendo platform. Because EA doesnt know whats good with gaming anymore. Because you have to agree back in the the GC days EA was the shit nowadays it is shit. Which is why they got worst company 2 years straight and since they keep trashing the Wii U a 3rd one guaranteed. GreenMarine They probably could have made SimCity work well because of the gamepad, and some RTS’s like Command & Conquer would have worked great for them too…their loss. Streakin-Cobra tru jake EA…….i will never buy another game from you again. How dare you use Nintendos name in vain…..ive seen multiple nintendo games thagt far surpass the creativity your bullshit is. And if you think there walking dead then i will support them fully to stay alive. Martin Košatka I was thinking about buying Need For Spped or Fifa, well not anymore. discuss As a Wii U owner I have to agree. The Wii U in it’s current state is crap. Nintendo needs to start doing their job and show us why the Wii U is good. Zephaniah Bethea The 3ds was in the same state as the Wii u, now look at it on top of the world. discuss The 3DS is a handheld and the Wii U is a console. John Raybell ok then look at the xbox360 at launch, do i really need to say more. lol In any case, the wiiu is better and can do more then any console that is out right now, and as far as games go, wiiu had a pretty damn good launch line up, better then the ps3 and xbox360 had at launch discuss Good launch line up? Please tell me which system sellers have been released. Ow wait … none! And the Xbox 360 has more options then the Wii U (sadly). John Raybell Yeah the xbox 360 has more options now, but its been out for over 6 years. I was comparing launch line ups, xbox 360 had a fucking horrific launch, games even looked like crap, hell at xbox360 launch, the games I was playing on my GameCube looked better then anything being released on 360 on launch, cant say that with the Wiiu and xbox360. My WiiU titles look better then my xbox360 titles as of now :). Jesus just fuck off already, your a stupid rock….. discuss Please tell me which system sellers for the Wii U have been released so far. Stop dodging the question which proves you are wrong … you dumb scissor? John Raybell NSMB,INJUSTICE, black ops2 which is better on the wii u game padtv having your own screen for two player rocks. Batman if you never played it, mass effect 3 if you never played it, Lego city is pretty good also, There are a bunch, and there will be tons more to come, stop being an ignorant troll already. I bailed on my xbox360 for a wiiu and have been so glad, as the 360 doesnt have anything else for me to play, yes i have owned hundreds of xbox360 titles before you ask. And nintendo makes better exclusives third party games on wiiu is just icing on the cake, a cake that at times doesn’t need icing, its always welcome though :). Hell at launch the xbox360 had no system sellers, not a single one, but again that changed 2 years after being out, which is what damn near every new system goes through. discuss I don’t think you know the meaning of “system sellers”. John Raybell Im not sure you do either, lets look at the xbox360, as of now none of the exclusives are system sellers,halo and gears are repeats of other games that came before it. hell its the third party and the xbox interface that makes it a system seller, where as when I got my wiiu and NSMB and played co-op with my younger brother I was happy with our purchase as the system and that game were shit tons of fun. Im 27 by the way, born 1986, so I grew up with nintendo, nintendo was my life, I only moved away from nintendo when the xbox360 was worth a shit, until it felt old, moved back to nintendo and now that i have im happy, I get to play true games again, games you can enjoy with out shooting someones head off or stabbing someone in the face or running over the public. before I had my xbox360 I did have a wii that i traded and after awhile got again, i didn’t get very many games on my wii due to the fact that i didn’t have my CRT tv because wii games looked like crap on HD tvs, in any case I kept playing nintendo games on my PC, yes I know thats a no no, but I have more then supported nintendo with buying two wiis, two ds’s,two 3ds, and buying games for those systems sometimes twice and now a happy wiiu owner happily awaiting some awesome wiiu games, this time i wont be trading because I know for a fact what is coming. 🙂 also still trying to find a used CRT so I can hook my wii back up and buy the two games I play on my PC skyward sword and dk returns, also missed out on mad world and a bunch of others that i haven’t played and need to get for my wii. Shit im just ranting now, ill stop and move on. And also If i’m a PC gamer and a WiiU gamer, what am I really missing out on???????????????? not a damn thing that’s what. Michael Jurado fact is 360 upon release sold 2.5mil at the end of it’s 3 quarters ( sales of 2005) where nintendo’s Wii U is at 3+mil at the start of it’s 2nd quarter. Same goes for Sony’s PS3 that sold 2+mil at the end of it’s 2 quarters (sales of 2006). So look at it how ever you want but, fact is Nintendo is kicking butt with out first party games without advertisement in a bad economy (US). I’m sorry but, no nintendo is far from done 😛 discuss They sold a lot of Wii U’s because of their reputation (just like Aliens Colonial Marines). However sale figures have been dropping fast in the months after the release. I really hope Nintendo comes with some good news before or on the E3. Michael Jurado yeah cuz after 100mil sales it’s hard to sell more bradlee donahue One this guy has poor grammar if you are going to insult someone use good grammar. Secondly he is completely ignorant. EA needs to get their panties out of a ruffle and quit being a preteen drama queen. Wii U is going to be excellent once they have a catalog. At this point if EA tries to make peace with Nintendo it would be like fucking for virginity Martin Košatka I am giving away my EA games. I dont want that crap anymore. Michael Jurado go on ebay sell them for 1.50$ go to taco bell trade the money you got from your EA games for some crunch tacos. Because, Taco Bell’s Crunchy Taco is > EA games. Adrian “Wii U is crap” = fastest growing thread in Wii U daily history. haha. Although I don’t understand how EA can declare this when the specs appear to prove otherwise discuss The Wii U is slow and so far no game shows amazing 3D graphics. Anyone can see that. John Raybell um ok, but fact is the wii U has games that look better then there counter parts on the xbox and ps, so what do you say about that. fact is, its the most powerful console that is out right now, also we all know how life cycles go, toward the end is when all the better looking games come out because devs will have gotten used to the hardware, so if the wiiU already looks better then ps3 and xbox360 which is does, and if things are only going to improve, and looking at the zelda tech demo this is a powerful console, one that is capable of allot. Hell that tech demo looks better then anything out on any console right now, what does this mean, well going by history nintendoes games are always much better looking then there tech demos, so going by that the next zelda will blow every console game away, then we have mario which is do the same. nintendo is going to make xbox and ps gamers cry soon 🙂 with there graphics, hell i wont be surprised that when zelda does come out that at that time it will look better then anything that’s on the ps4 and xbox360, it will for sure be more polished then anything on those two consoles. I own 2 xbox360s,wii,wiiU and a high end pc, iv played all the games, enough anyways, and right now in order of power goes PC,Wiiu,ps3orxbox360,wii. So far the wiiu has had games that look better, and the thing pretty much just came out, the wiiu and ps4 and xbox wont have the gap like wii did with those consoles. The wiiu isnt slow, devs just havnt got the hang of it just yet, this is how every console is ever, deal with it, if devs dont know the hardware they wont be able to take advantage of the hardware they are using, nintendo is taking care of that training devs to use the hardware. discuss You are comparing the Wii U to the Xbox 360 and PS3. Ok so the Wii U has graphics that are a little better then a 6 year old PS3 … great. Now compare it to a modern PC game and you will see that all the 3D game graphics so far suck. There is still a huge gap between the Wii U and a modern PC. The Wii U is slow, deal with it. They can make as many software upgrades as they want but the hardware will always be the bottlecap and everybody knows the Wii U hardware ain’t that good. John Raybell ok ill compare it with a modern day pc, like the pc I have with a GTX 670. Trine 2 was damn close, yes the pc version was slightly better looking, and ran a bit better with higher res, but Trine 2 was damn close to the PC. Need for speed most wanted actually ran better on the WiiU then a high end PC, due to poor optimization on the PC version but graphically was very close to the pc version texture and lighting wise. Crysis 3 would have been the same, and Metro last light. The console isnt as weak,slow as you think it is. And PC games never truly take advantage of the hardware in a PC so that’s a bad comparison when there are more PC exclusives made for Higher end rigs then we can make that comparison. Also take in to account that the ps4 isnt that amazing nor with the new xbox. every time I turn my PC on it takes a shit on those new consoles, as they again are years old hardware. Wiiu games will look just fine, even great, just as long as the devs aren’t lazy. Nintendo will prove that with there first party titles. I own all the titles mentioned above “PC titles” and the wiiu titles that i listed that are out, I also run my games maxed out in 1080p when I play games on my PC. trust me im making comparisons and judging games all the time 🙂 discuss There is no crysis 3 and metro last night on the Wii U. What are you smoking? Trine 2 is hardly the game to use when looking at 3d graphics. I have the same graphic card and I notice a big difference. Perhaps you should get a new driver? Oh and Kirby and Darksider 2 lag like hell on the Wii U. John Raybell ok first off crysis 3 was pretty much done, go read what the devs had to say, and metro was going to come out, but didnt. 2nd MY entire pc is up to date, I get new drivers and beta drivers and updates on day one of there release. And what do you notice a big difference in? Darksiders 2 is a lazy ass port, and all version of that game have issues. fucking horrible example that makes you look stupid lol And Kirby? you mean the VC title, Its a direct port, meaning the lag carried over to the console, the same lag is there on the nes version. infact this is noticeable using emulators with some older titles, nes and snes titles even on a high end machine because of how those games were programmed have the same lag that would happen in the same areas. Kirby wasn’t reprogrammed for VC. Failing to see what your getting at? you can name all the bad ports you want, but a bad port DOES NOT determine what the WIIU can do. You being a PC gamer should know this, as im sure you have played MANY unoptimized games on your PC, but does that mean your PC sucks and is slow, NOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO it means that those games wern’t ported well, it wasn’t optimized to use your full quad core, or your full video card, or your full ram. Same thing we see with some wiiU ports, as Other WiiU ports are actually the better version, because they were optimized for the console better and wasn’t such a straight port job. You need to understand that all HARDWARE is not the same, each consolePC has a learning curve due to hardware, one does not start with all knowledge of how to program on these consoles, that must be learned in order to take advantage of the hardware you are using, which again is why EVERY CONSOLE has games that look better at the end of there life cycles. This is why all Launches have been a bit bumpy. discuss Yeah I’ll go and read what the devs had to say about their own game who never got to be released on the Wii U and then I’ll use that as a benchmark. Sorry stopped reading there. John Raybell How about use the wiiu games that are better on the wiiu then any other console as a benchmark like i was doing. fact is the guys who made those games said they could do much more with the hardware that was what i was getting at you fuck. if you want a bench mark wait till the end of the cycle like you have to do with every console. discuss Hush hush no need for name calling. John Raybell well don’t be such an irritating no brainer. Hush hush go fuck your self asshole discuss Yes all this swearing clearly shows that you are the educated person … John Raybell They are just words dude, are you five? Swearing says nothing of education fucktard. Its also a very very very common thing, welcome to earth, did you just arrive? discuss It’s a very common thing to do for uneducated people who never learned how to have a civil discussion. It’s also quite sad that you want to be an internet bad-ass. John Raybell first off your a troll, you come to a wiiU page to bash nintendo and the wiiU and its owners, I mean really dude, dont you have anything better to do, like I know go to a fucking xbox360 or ps3 page and be with people who think how you do. Its obvious your not even a fan of nintendo or anything they do so why dont you just get the fuck out. Internet badass? fuck you dude your a moron, all I have done is respond to a moronic troll, so go fuck your self. so many trolls here its not even funny, go else where. people who dislike nintendo and what they do shouldnt be at a fucking Wiiu page asshole! Kirzan You know how people like to watch other people live? Reality TV? And how it’s the most popular kind of television currently? Well, we just like to come here and look at how many teenagers can blindly follow a company that is clearly clueless and keeps disappointing. Like watching reality TV, there’s really no point to it. It’s just fun to see so many kids rage at valid arguments and shit like getting 30 likes for posting “Nintendo 4 ever!!!11!1!”. Seriously! Wanna win at Wii U Daily upvotes? Post “Nintendo rulez!!!” or “EA fucking sucks!”. You’re no better than anyone 🙂 How long has it been since Nintendo itself “Wow’ed”? The world was not impressed with the Wii U. Its sales numbers clearly prove that. The lack of any first party except for a party game and a Wii HD remake clearly did not impress. Rooting for the underdog =/= supporting a successful product. Yes, the Wii was successful. Because of its incredible amount of great titles? Nope… Because grandma could play it. Stop thinking Nintendo is god. The world is changing and within, the economy. People are getting more poor and start thinking a lot more about where to spend their hard earned money. If the Wii U had 1, just 1 ground-breaking first party, then I wouldn’t even be here. But they don’t and won’t for a long time! They release this new platform that’s as good, if not better, than the current gen. No really cool HD Zelda/Metroid/Donkey Kong. Nothing! New SMB that works with the gamepad which doesn’t even do anything. Wake the fuck up. GreenMarine So, essentially what you are saying is, “Conform or you’re an idiot.” ?? You don’t like the Wii U, that’s fine, but then why come to a Wii U based page, shouldn’t you be focusing on your next-gen? The PS4 and Xbox will be amazing machines that will be able to put out some impressive numbers, but at the end of the day it’s all about fun. If Nintendo was gone today what choice would that leave gamers? Do I get pricey hardcore system X, or pricey hardcore system Y? Nintendo brings diversity to the table at the VERY least. A lot of what I see, however, is that Wii U owners love their console, yet for some reason, PS and Xbox fans feel threatened by the weaker system, feel the need to bring it down, and feel a need to harshly criticise other’s opinions. discuss We don’t know the prise of the PS4 and XBOX 720 yet. So that obliterates your first argument. Everyone who talks negative about the Wii U must be a PS or XBOX fanboy right? A really good argument! /facepalm GreenMarine Obliterates my argument? So you’re saying the xbox and PS4 will be under, or around $350? Wrong, they will be at least over $450 (pricey in this economy) since the Wii U at $350 doesn’t make a profit for N until a game is purchased. So unless MS and Sony are planning to take a loss on their more technically advanced consoles, we will probably see prices in the $500 range. Then you need to drop cash on games too since there is no backward compatibility with the new consoles. (Along with MS online services and the rumours of a required Kinect) Use your brain. It doesn’t take a genius to estimate the price tags. Who else would hate on the Wii U other than fans of MS and Sony? PC gamers could care less about the underpowered consoles. I never said fanboy either. A fan is someone who enjoys a system, a fanboy is someone who’s obsessed with a system. discuss A subscription based pricing model can make the XBOX/PS cheaper or equally expansive compared to the Wii U. Your argument is still based on rumors and therefor invalid. You said “A lot of what I see, however, is that Wii U owners love their console,” So if you buy something there can be no way that you can be dissatisfied with the product? Did you ever realize some people can afford a PC and/or multiple consoles? GreenMarine Come on discuss, don’t twist my words around like a politician. My, “Wii U owners love their console,” statement was refering to these type of blogs in particular. Any time Wii U news is announced, good or bad, we constantly see attacks on the Wii U from people who don’t, and may never, own it. If you’re not going to buy it, then who cares?! GreenMarine Wii U at $350 and no profit made by N until a game is purchased. So, unless MS and Sony decide to take a loss on their (technically more advanced than the U) consoles, which they won’t, the lowest possible price we will see, the Xbox basic model, will be roughly around $450. (Rumours of a required Kinect and MS’s paid online service needs to be taken account for) Use your brain, it doesn’t take a genius to know that the new consoles will burn a hole in your wallet. In this economy even the Wii U’s $350 is too pricey for some. Not to mention the price of any new games you’re going to need to buy around launch as the new consoles are not backwards compatible. Also, PS and Xbox fans may not be the only ones to criticise the Wii U, but they are definitely the loudest. Why do people even care about a system that isn’t even relevant to them, I’ll never know. I’m sure the new consoles will be great, but I’m not getting either, therefore I could care less about what they are doing. GreenMarine Also, I was making statements, not arguments. Stating that if Nintendo was out of the console business today we’d be left with only two pricey consoles is essentially a fact, not an argument. What nerd ass term is /facepalm, anyway? I Googled it and all that comes up is some no life World of Warcraft shit. discuss Ok let me make this simple for you: NEITHER MS OR SONY HAS MADE THEIR PRICING MODELS PUBLIC. Seriously is it so hard to understand the difference between a rumor and a fact!? Apparently it is because you don’t even know what a facepalm is. GreenMarine /sarcasim you WoW nerd. We’ll talk again around June 11th. You’re pretty dense if you think either of the new consoles will be less than the Wii U’s $350 pricetag. As I said, in this economy $350 is still a stretch for some, and can be considered pricey. discuss You lost the argument and now you resort to insulting, how sad. I said that your argument, at this time, is incorrect as we don’t have any concrete info considering pricing models yet. Ps. I never played and will never play WoW. It’s not my kind of game. However it’s extremely funny that you consider WoW players nerds when you play games yourself. GreenMarine If you consider ‘nerd’ an insult, then you’re going to have a tough time on the internet when you encounter people who actually go out of their way to insult you. Much worse than ‘nerd’ can be said. I do believe, however, you were the one who targeted my opinions first in an attempt to somehow put them down, i.e. /facepalm. Just trying to have a reasonable, mature discussion with you is all. Regardless if MS or Sony has dropped prices yet, do you honestly believe those consoles will be cheaper than $350? People make fun of the $350 Wii U price tag as they believe it shows how cheaply constructed the U is. So to say that MS and Sony’s consoles will cost more than $350 is not unreasonable. Awesome if either of them will be that low in price, but I don’t see it happening. GreenMarine I mean come on, look how that John guy was talking to you. That’s insulting. Live and let live. (Indeed we’re all nerds, but you have to admit the WoW fans take it to the next level.) angel that discuss guy probably rich, if im going to invest on a console as expensive as a pc, im going pc lol GreenMarine Yep! He’s a huge gamer who thinks everyone is capable of owning multiple systems. I personally know nobody who owns two consoles. The average person doesn’t need multiple consoles nor want them. I got the Wii U mainly for it’s pricetag; I have bills and a family. If I was still a bachelor I’d just go super-nerd and get an awesome gaming PC. @ discuss: You still think The new Xbox One’s required new Kinect, new controllers, and always on functionality is going to be under $350? Xbox is not doomed at all, but it seems they are focusing less on gaming…Probably why Sony’s stock rose 9% yesterday. Kirzan Dude I OWN a Wii U… So, if owning a Wii U makes me a “non-conformist”, then I guess I’m one, huh? Who gives a shit about the other platforms? PS4, Infinity, who cares? Even if they suck, it doesn’t change what I wrote above. It’s not about picking a fucking side. If you love games, play what you want! It’s about Nintendo stepping their game up and tackling important issues instead of doing shit like claiming ad revenue from Nintendo LPs. Which is, by the way, the biggest Nintendo news since the Wii U’s launch. GreenMarine You essentially reworded what I wrote. Read before reply. Kirzan Reading… Reading… Reading… You’re jerking off Nintendo’s dick while I say they really have to step it up (AKA they’re not good right now. AKA they need to get better). Sure, I did repeat some of what you said. I agree with you on some points. You don’t have to be a dick about it. I’m saying you’re right on the fun part. The important part, however, I didn’t rewrite. Nintendo really needs to wake up. GreenMarine My point was this: Who cares what system you have, if it works for you and is fun then that’s great. I’m not trying to be a dick, I’m defending my opinion. Xbox One will be fun, PS4 will be fun, and Wii U…will be fun too soon enough. We’re all nerdy ass gamers in the end. John Raybell not even going to finish reading that crap, either way every nintendo console ends up being worth owning new experiences and the games are always worth it. In any case your a moron Kirzan Yeah! Nintendoland was fucking AWESOME! I couldn’t ever have a complete gaming life without having played this masterpiece! I mean, shit, it’s a bunch of mini-games… with!… Well, that’s about it! Never done before. Completely mind-blowing title. John Raybell Wow you named one release. your pretty awesome. Its a LAUNCH fuck what dont you people understand, this is like how every launch has been, name one console that launched with tons of AAA titles, sadly wiiu came the closet, they had more AAA launch titles then pretty much any other launch. discuss Dear John, I own a SNES, Nintendo 64, Gamecube, Xbox 360 and Wii U. So far no console has ever disappointed me except for the Wii U. Now all of your posts are basically saying that I can’t share my opinion about the Wii U when it isn’t positive. Because only trolls write negative posts, right? The post below me from Mike describes exactly how you act. The sad thing about it is that you are 27 years old. You know who the real troll is? You. You do nothing but trying to provoke me into a flame war. John Raybell You got the xbox360 at launch and weren’t disappointed in that? even know that at launch the wii u had better games to play? The Xbox360 was crap when it came out, no games, and they all looked like last gen games. it was only till the console was out for awhile before it was even worth getting. What bothers me is people like you GIVE no good reasons as to why you think the way you do, you just do. Its like you were born yesterday and never went though a console launch. As far as games go, the WiiU has more to offer then the xbox360 in its launch window. So your just being a little crying bitch along with a bunch of you guys. Go PLAY your xbox till more games come out, are you that slow? get a few here and there that are worth getting for the wii u and get by :). something other then just being an ignorant dick head. oooops I said dick :(. discuss No good reason? It’s all in the previous posts … slow, no games, no news, bad browser etc. Oh and John Raybell Just look at Reggie, below me ;). and all that shit you just said is like xbox360 launch only more games to play then at that shitty launch. Michael Jurado first off you guys are comparing things wrong. You compare wii graphics vs wii u graphics, which is low end not hd graphics vs hd graphics > 360/ps3 upon release. The one’s in trouble are the guys who set the bar on hd graphics, since they have to push the graphics game further making the machine more like a computer ever pushing the 1K$ limit, for the kind of machine you want. John Raybell When the xbox360 came out games looked just like last gen gamecube games, AT LAUNCH its best to compare with a last gen console, because if a console AT LAUNCH can pull off what last gen did at the END of its cycle, it tells you that the new console you have is far far ahead of the last gen console, even though games might look the same or just a bit better. This is because devs don’t know how to use the hardware just yet, happens with every console, games start to look better as the devs get used to it. same here. AND we have been comparing Wiiu to 360,ps3 and a fucking PC, so just shut the fuck up 🙂 majora :D …Says a member of USA’s shittiest brand Ryan Wick Have more fun with my Wii U games than anything from EA lately so I really don’t have a problem with them not supporting Wii U. I have more of a problem with their hoarding the NFL licenses and ruining the Madden franchise. Kirzan He’s right about the 1990 part. And Nintendo really has nothing to be proud of. Specially after shutting down Let’s Plays. John Raybell how is he right about the 1990 thing? the way I see it the WiiU is a true next gen console, where as ps4 and xbox next or what ever are only upgrades of the consoles they already have, where as nintendo try’s to make a console that’s truly different from the ones that came before it. And nintendo has tons to be proud of, at this point your coming off as a troll. dont suck bobs dick to hard Kirzan Still waiting on a first party that uses the gamepad as well as Ubisoft did in ZombiU AKA as something to enhance gameplay and not just a second screen to put UI elements on (or just “a second screen”). Actually… “Still waiting on a first party” alone was enough. Point is: The Wii U’s “innovation” is the gamepad. I want you to tell me one title, aside from ZombiU, that totally blew your mind BECAUSE OF THE GAMEPAD… See you in a year. When Zelda comes out. Guest How about the free Rayman Challenge app that’s already out? Great use of the gamepad. Or how about the fact that I’m watching YouTube on my TV through my Wii U all while EASILY typing this post on my gamepad? I guess PS4 will have a cool “Share,” button though…and MS’s Kinect will still only be useful as voice recognition. Kirzan Ok, but aside from what the PS3, then later the 360, then later the Wii could always do? Or what a smartphone has always been able to do… You do know innovation is about doing new things, right? zhenyaivan lol at “Nintendo shutting down LPs” Kirzan Oh, I’m sorry maybe I should have been more clear. Specially after shutting down Nintendo LPs. Serious people, the ones whose LPs are worth watching, make a living off of it. Claiming the money they make effectively shuts them down. What part did your Nintendrone brain not get? zhenyaivan yes, yes because there is no other non Nintendo game that they can go to. GreenMarine They can get real fucking jobs now like the rest of us instead of playing a game and making money from it. You play games because it’s fun- period. It’s a joke that people actually make money from recording themselves playing a video game. Nintendo makes the games, it’s their property, get over it. Kirzan What do you do that’s so much better than entertaining people online? I mean, you must really hate movies and such. Music? Do you hate that too? It’s entertainment media, lol. So I guess, since the game is Nintendo’s property after buying it… It’s illegal to resell it? Correct? You can’t make money off of someone else’s “property”, right? Then why can Gamestop do it?!? Huh… STRANGE WORLD! GreenMarine I’m a former infantry Marine. So, yeah, that’s more important than entertaining people online. Also, MAKING music and movies is much different than recording yourself playing a game, so don’t try and compare them. Xbox One is rumoured to play discs that download to your box and can’t be resold, i.e. Gamestop. Kirzan Oh no! An ex-military type… Yes, you are a god among men. Your years of service has preserved freedom in the United States of America. The US land would be defenseless without you. I’m extremely proud of soldiers. The ones with heads that use brains. The other ones, the ones that use their service as a way to prove they’re better than others because they can’t be smart, can go fuck themselves. Justin Jefferson I LOVE NINTENDO! NEVER STOP! Justin Jefferson I DONT CARE ABOUT EA EITHER! I WANT ZELDA, MARIO, METROID, KIRBY, YOSHI!!! and i WILL ALWAYS buy ANY wierd system nintedo makes to play them Manuel Alberto Can anyone delete this from the face of the earth? di g fuck ea Coval83 … and EA should stop making games…WTF is happend with EA? They gonna die… not Nintendo… I can tell… Leo Well i wished we were in 1990 where developers used to be creative instead of taking their time to trash other companies John Raybell lol yeah no shit. been playing the same games with different titles over and over on my xbox360 for the last 6+ years. GETTING OLD AS HELL. Glad I have a PC and a Wii U to back it up :), Also have a 3ds which has tons of creative games. PC has allot of creative games also, allot of this is due to STEAM tons of different titles I almost get overwhelmed and never know what to try lol. Pretty sure the new xbox and ps4 are going to be a repeat of this Last Gen game wise. Which is pretty fucking sad but that’s milking for ya Enigma Hahahahaha. Excellent. Excellently said. Preach it EA. You may be a shitty company, but at least you are in a terrible enough position with Nintendo that you are able to say the truth without any fear of repercussion. John Raybell say the truth? he didn’t speak any Enigma Oh yes he did. John Raybell No he didnt, he lied about it being more powerful then the xbox360 and lied about nintendo being dead. Nintendo makes profit, makes great games that are more polished then anyone elses, and he fails to realize how to use the hardware, while parts of EA the guys who make need for speed fully understand that its better then xbox360 hardware. being so close to him and him having no idea, had he even played the better ports for the console, or talked to people under EA where he fucking works. This guy woke up one morning and his dog wouldn’t let him fuck him so he got pretty upset and took it out on the wiiU and nintendo. He later mounted his cat then deleted his twitter posts because being releaved he now knew he was in the wrong and was just in a pissy mood. Enigma ….. what is wrong with you. I’m not even going to waste my time with a reply. John Raybell HAHAHAHA Daniel Gonzalez You just did. Lol. Besides. There’s a difference from stating an opinion and being professional and being a total douchebag and stating nonsense. Enigma I meant a thought out reply that pertained to the topic at hand. Correct. There is a huge disparity between the two. Luckily my reply was not douchebag nonsense, right? Though it might seem like that to you, considering how sensitive Nintendo fanboys can be. Especially when it comes to the abysmal truth for their beloved Wii U. Daniel Gonzalez Well I’m not a fanboy if that’s where you’re getting at lol. I play on any console. I really don’t care what people think of Nintendo, but they can at least present their criticism in a professional manner. There was no reason for Summerwell to just down right spew out such idiotic comments like that. Extra Vinegary Even more reason to support my decision to boycott all EA games. Sorry developers if that means you make no money, but if EA keeps operating like this, I am not supporting any EA game. They were voted worst company two years in a row for a reason. Coval83 just wait until 1st party games comes… one word… e3… zelda… metroid… mario kart… proper mario game… smash bros…even for those games only, everybody will forget about EA… but… I just wondering about star wars games… ea is the a publisher wright? 1313… battlefront… jedi knight…awesome for the gampad capabilities… Enigma Not really. That gamepad doesn’t really do much in any game. It’s a gimmick. John Raybell actually not really, you must not own any tablet like device nor have a wiu nor played any of its games. Enigma False. John Raybell Whats false? That you don’t own anything like that, or that you are to ignorant that you called a tablet and all those tabs like those gimmicky. When I play black ops 2 with my brother on one console but both have our own screens, that is far from a gimmick . So far its been used in the pretty cool ways, Rayman challenge mode “Murfy’s challages and NSMB challenge mode both use it in great fun ways, a different way to play a game, isn’t always a gimmick, it can be just that, different play mechanics and so far they have been pretty fucking enjoyable. Its one of those consoles you really have to play and use the features before you can make a judgement like you are and many others are. InterTreble There must be a reason why EA is the worst company in USA. Or, in other words, crap. david daniel wharton camacho in the world… if they made the poll counting mexico i would vote them worst InterTreble and italy by my side! 😉 John Raybell http://www.ign.com/articles/2013/05/19/smash-bros-mario-mario-kart-in-upcoming-nintendo-direct?abthid=519964ab2ef7fea754000002 –Show Figure I would spill the news before wiiudaily, well IGN with help from me 🙂 Gecko Altair The fact that he said “weird tablet” just goes to show that EA is way to stupid to make games for the Wii u anyway. JamesJose haha LMAO! LittleMofreaky Yeah, talk about lazy and not creative. “What do we do with a second screen?” I dunno… FUCKING ANYTHING! There are infinite possibilities when you actually LIKE video games. Nathan DeFalco “Nintendo are” “NIntendo are” It’s “Nintendo is” you idiot. How in the world did you graduate high school and go on to be an engineer when you haven’t even mastered basic grammar? david daniel wharton camacho wanna be my BFF? david daniel wharton camacho is that a no? 🙁 Paul Sahbaz Summerwill is Canadian. In the context he uses it in, “are” is grammatically correct in British English, which is the variant of English Canadians use. Other than that, I agree, the dude’s an idiot. Nathan DeFalco I’m pretty sure I’m right about this. It’s simple subject/verb agreement. I don’t think it is colloquial. It should be “Nintendo is” because it is referring to a singular entity, not all the individual employees of Nintendo. Do you have a grammar website you can link to with that info? As a former English teacher, whenever I correct people’s grammar (and it is rare that I do), I at least like to be right. I tried looking up that information and couldn’t find it. disqus_c39xUtm3WM This is the time that Nintendo should needs to jump start there company by advertising and putting Nintendos face out there anyone else see this is time for a Zelda movie …. disqus_c39xUtm3WM J/k Erik So this is how they treat us? Fine. Im ok with Smash Bros 4, Bayonetta 2, Yoshi Yarn, and a few more titles that will BRING sales to the Wii U. EA? HA! they KEEP on making the SAME damn thing for FIFA AND Madden (because they just updated ONLY players and a few minor adjustments). I probably wont give my support to them because im pretty sure most of it’s employee are graphic whores and Shitbox360 fanboys and NEVER knew what Nintendo is and/or what they are capable of. JamesJose Amen dude JamesJose His mom is less powerful than the 360. His mouth is full of jealousy and bullshit, haters invaded EA. Nintendo doesn’t need EA games, BITCH Kirzan You’re right. They just need games… Period. oontz ha ha ha Orange Lada “Nintendo are walking dead at this point” Funny – I thought EA were walking dead at this point. Seriously. HypocritesRROD Xbot in the house… RROD. Destructonator101 EA is very hypocritical. Guest Senior software engineer at EA and he states that the 360 is more powerful than the U? Not even halfway through 2013 and EA is already on it’s way to a three-peat for that CRAP company of America award. GreenMarine If it’s dead then why care? If this engineer truly thinks the Wii U is crap then you’d think he’d be more worried about developing software for the PS/XB instead of caring what N is or isn’t doing. From a PC perspective, the PS4 and new box are crap too and won’t be pushing the limits of current tech. To each his own. Martin Držálek How it could be less powerfull.. Games run on 1080p and two rendering screens? So i dont think so 😉 Giovanni Nijenhuis They are just mad because frostbite 3 doesn,t work good on the wii u but i thought they were second voted as the worst he only makes it bigger Christopher Acuna If you actually believe that the Frostbite 3 engine does not work well on the WiiU then you are just as idiotic as this “Engineer.” Giovanni Nijenhuis bitch please i bought a wii u and its amazing joel Playing videogame for the graphics is like watching porn for the story! htrhr Nintendo is …. grammar please! gamer_guy So what do Nintendo Wii U owners want? Are they upset with EA not porting games they don’t want to buy. Seems mad to me. I think EA need to take a bit of responsibility, their Wii ports were very poor so the expectation is low. Maybe they should try to bring something to the Wii U that’s considerably different to whats on the other platforms, you know, Nintendo owners want something more than a basic PC port. The twitter comment is amazing, a 360 fanboy in the upper echelons of the EA organisation, no wonder the Wii ports were shite. Ash Kirkwood EA are just lazy and petty. They find it easier to pan a console then get a better understanding of how to utilise the systems GPGPU architecture. People aren’t going to buy their games if they just “meh” and slap on a cheap limited port. Look back at the start of gen 7 and see the visual quality then PS3 and X360 lunch titles compared to now the end of gen 7, vast improvements e.g. “Tomb Raider” the same consoles and no new hardware just a better understanding on how to utilise what is given. The original Wii output 480p at best and still visually amazed with titles like Mario Galaxy 2, Super Smash Bros Brawl and Xenoblade Chronicles. Nintendo’s Wii U is just getting started. I got my Wii U at launch and understand the frustrations of the lack of titles but am glad Nintendo are taking their time with their IP’s and making sure they release them polished and perfect, they still care, and because of that, the wait will be worth it. plus with Capcom, Sega, Square and Ubisoft giving their support with their titles “Hey EA Wii U seems to be able to run Ubi’s Watch Dogs and Crytek’s Cry Engine 3,” so don’t lie about power or performance issues, just man up and say either you’re lazy to study and understand the Wii U’s innards or that you just want to Kill the Nintendo brand. We all know already. I also feel sorry for Bioware. I like the games but will no longer buy future tiles. I just can’t support EA until they grow up and make a serious change with their attitude. andré i think that Wii U is a good console, with great potential. its EA´s loss that they dont see that. Ash Kirkwood I agree, the lack of titles hurts now, but the wait will be worth it. I’m OK with Nintendo taking their time because their games are always released polished. At least we don’t have to sit through months of patch updates so our games work properly. ^_^ zero909309 i cant beleve EA is dogging the big N EA…weres your system huu oh ya u suck 2 much 2 hav 1 EA sucks besides battlefield and that gets way boring its was fun when thy had tiger woods 4 the wii but they’re stupid @$$es… JVAN63 Just for that, I’ll boycott EA for my non-Nintendo systems. Creative canvas EA is crap. Take that EA! Wiiu Why get mad…EA was voted the worst gaming company of the year, so why care what the worst thinks about Nintendo. Dez Is anyone surprised? It is EA, 2 time winner of the worst company in America and the greediest company in the gaming industry ever. This all harks back to the fact EA is lazy and will just half-ass everything and expect people to pay and some still do. They treat you like crap, they force you to install their shitty software, they never allow the developers to fix bugs, they always have online requirements to play, they sell a half-finished product and make you pay no less than $20 for expansions (Sims) when there is like a million of them and then that overpriced DLC. What is good about EA? Am I the only one who knows what douches EA is? They’ve done this for years now, they are just butt-hurt Nintendo didn’t accept their crappy Origin service since Nintendo won’t let those assholes ruin everything and wrest control of their system from them. EA has rarely ever released a quality game, the Sims was great back in the day now it has been beaten to death and is not worth buying due to the bugs and crap. Battlefield, Mass Effect, and Dragon Age have been milked and half-assed and that will continue in the future. Moreover, the only reason EA even has these games is that the studios needed a publisher and when they don’t make lots of money, EA drops them with all the debt and bars entrance into the industry more stalwartly than any other. The problem was and never will be EA’s CEO, it is the management as a whole which is screwed up. The fact people keep buying their crap especially their sports games is just encouraging them to continue treating the consumer poorly. Hell, you’d think they’d learn after the disaster that was Sim City. EA’s profits in recent years are below average and you can bet they are gimping the development studios to make up costs. EA is bad news, steer clear at all costs! Darkness Great comment. This is very true EA is corrupt as a company I am going to email Disney to get them to drop the deal with this crap company. Disney should work with Activision ED What good games that EA makes? I know I have played some but I can’t remember. Petri EA makes sports games, some studios that EA has devoured makes some decent games. BF: Bad Company 2 and Mirror’s Edge being my favorites. Guest Hahahahahahahaha A crap company don’t have the right to say this.

This is the best piece of crap ever!
