    A shocking plot twist! (or not)
    Did Nintendo send their ninjas :lol:?

    Edit: To be fair, skipping a "family-friendly" console isn't the right thing to do when you have a deal with Disney. Still, I'd like to know Nintendo's reaction would be after all EA said about their console.

    Nintendo and EA have deeper issues than just what was said in public...

    This is just becoming silly. Someone just needs to smack them up already, because they are all over the place.
    One the plus side, I am glad see they are making games for the Wii U, even though I don't like EA, but they are better than nothing. The Wii U needs games, plain and simple.

    What's next? Frostbite 2 and 3 miraculously run well on the Wii U with a little bit of honest work?

    It's probably going to be shovelware if they are.

    No, it runs on CryEngine 3, which is confirmed to run "beautifully" on Wii U.

    Speaking of which, would anyone be surprised if Crysis 3, after being canned close to releasing by EA, ends up coming to Wii U now?

    Oh, I knew it was running something with a 3 in it. Still glad to hear the Wii U actually is powerful enough to run the Crysis 3 engine!
    Makes you wonder if the Wii U is powerful enough for Frostbite 3? :unsure:

    When I see this, all I can hear is EA, with Smeagol's voice saying,

    EA loves Wii U! NO! EA hates Wii U. No, we loves Wii U...EA hates Wii U!

    ....This just baffles my mind.

    What the hell are we supposed to believe? Like, what can be said about this?

    "Oh shit, Sony's stock went up after that Microsoft conference and them confirming Xbox One has to be online at least once a day? XBOX DOOONNNNNEE!

    Guess we should develop games for WiiU?"


    Like I am actually confused on their business decisions, it doesn't make any sense at all.

    The new PR man for EA is different, is EA trying to change their image from being the worst company. I hope they fired that other asshole that bashed on the Wii U and Nintendo.
