    I know we all knew this, and that its not exactly news per se, but its just a little more confirmation on what we were already thinking.
    Feel free to say all the usual EA related stuff, and WiiU doomed stuff .

    I think what EA are saying is they fulfilled their E3 2011 promise and now they're done.

    EA = The biggest babies in gaming? Possibly.

    Yet another thread about EA and Nintendo's strained relationship?

    This can only end well.

    I predict denialism, EA-bashing, conspiracies, some deleted posts, a lock, and many rustled rumps.

    "I DUNT CARE! I DUNT PLAY EA GAEMS CUZ DEY DA DEVIL, MA MAMA SAID SO. NINTY IS MA SAVIOR AND DEY JUST NEED MARIO AND ZELDA TO LIVE 4EVA! I ONLY PLAY FORST PARTY GAEMS ON MA WII U ANYWAY"

    On a serious note, I am disappoint. I did expect this, but now there's no confirmation of me being able to play any Mass effect or Battlefield on my wii u~
    The dust thickens by the minute.

    And here I was thinking people were being negative. This has got to be the best news I've heard all day! No really. The continual making of these threads, the civil discussions, the friendliness, it all adds up to make this the best thread I've ever posted in.:P

    Your pic always makes me laugh. Side note but still EA related is I've had mixed experience with them. Years ago I bought a game used from a store and could not play online. They issued me a new CD key as I bought it legitimately. I've always liked C and C except 4; no bases meant no go for me. A lot of good games over the years.

    Hearing the views/experiences lately had me skeptical. I went to WSOP for Android. Another popular app stole chips with disconnects, lol. DC, balance of chips is then zeroed out. Emailed yesterday after asking for the fix in March!! EA let me take a survey for 600,000 chips. No chips given. Emailed, then two other groups confirmed I get chips and said they told EA. Quick response when I emailed support. No follow through. Ignored by EA for like two weeks. You can make good apps, good games, but with shitty customer service it will not matter. Why did the head guy sell all stock? Ruin a franchise with garbage like C and C 4. I hope stocks drop and they change back... or the company burns with the same value as fake poker chips they are too lazy to deliver. Many play tight and slow on wsop. I took 17,000 and turned it into 250 million on another popular poker app. Point; gave a good start within the offer and this pos EA cannot even get that correct.

    You know.... I was going to reply to that picture because it reminded me of something else, but I literally can't find any gifs of The Man Show.

    Indeed. Nintendo could use all the support it can get; granted, they didn't explicitly say that future games are an impossibility, but at the same time, they might as well just come out and say it. It is what is I guess, only time will tell. It may change, it may not. :P I've no reason to be up in arms about this, I really don't, it doesn't make it better.

    Probably gonna be the typical "We're too good for EA games" or "EA is EVIL for not supporting an underperforming console!" stuff. Basically people who don't understand how industry works.

    I wouldn't necessarily call them evil, but some people would likely point out that their business decisions are misunderstood at best and hopefully acknowledge it. Why should I get upset at this news? What good would it do me or anyone to get mad at at? It's not going to make them change their minds.

    Oh man, looks like I'm going to have to "buy" Mass effect, FIFA, The sims, battlefield and need for speed games for the ps3/4 or PC now :/.
    At least the WII U will have PES, which, in my opinion, is better than FIFA. But FIFA is really good too.

    Also people with the "It's cool to point out that people are going to defend the WiiU so I need to make a message about it. Kay." stuff.

    If it wasn't for that message (which is debatable at best), I would have reported that post already.

    I'll make sure to take that under consideration next time I make a post with the intention of pleasing you in a nonsexual manner.

    ANYWAY Battlefield 4 is cool guys right?

    Actually it's because you say the same thing in every WiiU thread that involves the console not getting a game/series. It's no better than spam or ... well it's no better than what's the guy's name, narutofan? or jalename or whatever the fuck that persons name is.

    Lol I'll give you a like for that one. One of the best things this avatar has done is I get that said to me so many times, it always makes me laugh.

    EA doesn't want to work for Nintendo, doesn't want to invest the time and money into making games or watered down ports. End of story. Now we can close the thread.
