    And so many people aren't buying the Wii U because EA isn't supporting it.

    As for their four games, they came out with four crappy ports that were cheaper on other consoles, and expected them to sell well.

    And really, the Wii U has sold millions more "boxes" than the PS4 and X1, but that hasn't stopped them from gambling tons of games on those systems.

    I'm glad you don't work at Nintendo.

    Except NFS wasn't a shitty port and had improved visuals/framerate, included DLC, Gamepad features and more.

    I pirate all my EA games, the only one being The Sims 3.

    Seriously though, I actually haven't bought ANY EA games this gen because they don't interest me, so couldn't care less if they support Wii U.

    That's because PS4 will actually sell.

    I'm sure it will, but their argument is that Nintendo hasn't sold enough units yet. They started out with tons of support for the PS4 and X1, before they even know how well the systems will sell.

    With the exception of NFS (based on what I've heard, haven't played it), the ports they released for the Wii U weren't done very well. With ME3, they wouldn't release any of the DLC, and released the whole trilogy for other consoles with a total price lower than that of the Wii U version. You can't expect something to sell well when you give a much better deal for another system.

    That attitude left when they changed their slogan to "Money ova Bitches"

    Who said they abandoned it? After all, they're challenging Nintendo to sell better.

    Because EA's half-assed ports will sell like hotcakes of course.


    EA makes rushed ports for Wii U

    Said Wii U ports don't sell that well

    EA refuses to support Wii U till it becomes more viable


    Sorry, what? I think I missed something there, and yet despite having made rushed ports that failed, they have the testicles to come out and say such a bold statement?

    I think at this point, they need to either make up their mind, or shut up. Also
    There is a game coming out for wii u called "X" by Monolith Soft, and it looks awesome.

    Serious question...

    Does this mean that EA isn't going to be putting anything out for the XBone?
