    I approve. The only EA game I still play is SimCity 4 since the fuck-up that has been that company since then (the Mass Effect series being the ONLY exception)
    Also, NIN10DUH IS DOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOMZ!!!!1!!!!1! Pretty much sums up most of the comments on that article. Also who called EA, "Wii U's largest 3rd Party dev"?

    Like this would hurt sales in the slightest, if Wii U sales pick up they'll be porting games in any case. As it is right now it's not profitable enough to invest in Wii U development as it's not as easy as "port code, call it a day".

    Working on the other next gen systems is a huge gamble on their part, they're a little too confident next gen will turn out like this one I think. It most likely will but even then I haven't heard anything but negative things about next gen from anyone where I live.

    And where is the actual source for this? People can say "keep their crap" but it still hurts Wii U (whether minor or not). I personally don't care for any EA game on consoles when the PC version would likely be superior(mainly just BF).

    This is literally just troll bait without a valid source. In fact it just reads like speculation from this "source".

    I like how people are so entrenched in their blind fanboyism that they celebrate this news as some sort of good thing.

    "Wooo yeah major publisher has no interest at all in our struggling console!"
    "No Battlefield 4 on wii u, but it will be on every other platform! How fantastic!"

    So much hypocrisy, I remember everyone salivating over need for speed on the Wii U because it was "The best version" but the mental illness is so strong and the doublethink so constant even bad news must be turned to good.

    But it's ok, I am just hating. I am sure that all the bosses over at Nintendo HQ are celebrating just as much as you children are upon hearing this news. :)

    And here we gooooooo! (not saying this isn't true but this is what the thread will consist of)

    (also LOL @ BF4 on consoles)

    This isn't news and is just speculation based on some month old quotes. This is about no known titles being developed from EA and a source which makes it sound like they have cut off support completely. Move this out of USN.

    I'm only saying that if the Wii U turns out to be a commercial failure it will be Nintendo's fault for not supporting it, the lack of EA software wouldn't be a factor.

    People are just pissed about the Simcity thing and EA's general attitude which is why they're acting as "good riddance".

    Damn. Now I can't play SimCity on the Wii U I don't own. Looks like I'm going back to my trusty old Commodore 64.

    The source of this news was extracted from this interview:
    http://www.bloomberg.com/video/ea-s...ook-battlefield-4-3tJXjo9xRFascQx5a1~1pg.html

    EA hasn't announced it isn't supporting WiiU -- mywiiu just went to the liberty to deduce that claim based on Peter Moore not mentioning WiiU in the Bloomberg interview.

    Keep in mind also that even if EA doesn't have any titles in development now, they could resume at any time.
    (their site states that only 6 games are 'coming soon' -- you know there is more than that)
