    Mass Effect 3's two single player expansions (not counting the free endgame clarification DLC), Leviathan and the upcoming Omega, will not be coming to the Wii U, according to EA.

    When asked about the DLC, EA responded with "Unfortunately it will not be available for Wii U." However, on the topic of other DLC, EA has said to "Never say never."

    The Wii U version launched with the controversial launch day DLC From Ashes included, as well as the Resurgence, Rebellion, and Earth multiplayer expansions. However, it is still missing the previously mentioned Leviathan DLC, as well as the Retaliation multiplayer DLC and weapon packs.

    EA recently announced a Mass Effect trilogy for the Xbox 360, Playstation 3, and PC, bringing all three games to all systems (with the first Mass Effect missing a Playstation 3 version). On the Wii U, EA said they "don't have anything to announce at this time, but we'll definitely keep you posted if something comes up!"

    I'm not too surprised considering EA seems to hate the WiiU.

    As if people needed another reason not to buy Mass Effect 3 for the Wii U, EA provided anyway.

    That was awful generous of them.

    ea is one of the bigger supporters of the wii u? that's what it looked like in the interviews at least . But is the mass effect twitter account handled by ea?
    anyway, the chances of me buying a wii u dropped significantly because of some choices that nintendo made.

    IIRC there was a rumor EA wanted to help Ninty making an online system if they got full rights to it. Obviously Ninty didn't want to use a system run by EA so they declined, EA got butthurt and stopped making an effort. That's a rumor though. That being said, the games by EA for the system that I know of (ME3 and some football game) are both extremely crappy ports, so yeah. ME3 when you can get the trilogy for the same price? SURE EA. And Madden won't have the new physics engine.

    Dear EA,
    We already have so much hate about you,
    I think this will be easily ignorable.

    Wow, the only reason anyone should get this game for WiiU is if it would have been the Trilogy with every DLC for like 80 bucks or something. Like this this version is worth nothing imo!

    Ridiculous of EA quite honestly!

    Really though EA isn't that bad. They did give us all that free Mass Effect 3 DLC. Even on the Wii U.

    And yet they are releasing the entire trilogy on other platforms. It confuses me that they would do that and not release the entire series for the Wii U, even if it's on individual discs.

    Further proof that EA is simply the worst company in America.


    Thanks EA!

    This literally makes no sense, the ME3 port on the WiiU, from what I've heard is inferior, and now they're releasing the trilogy for every system besides the WiiU, as well as not providing the DLC. Unless EA loves missing business opportunities, there must be some kind of grudge here.

    Oh. No. Whatever shall we do.


    I can't help but feel like EA has some sort of hatred with the Wii U.

    The whole title is misleading as there are plenty worse companies that operate in America.

    Also, I suggest you read into Walmart. "Oh no, we're not getting DLC!" =/= All this shit

    I was referring to EA's Golden Poo award earlier this year, but yeah, Wal-Mart seems worse in comparison.

    That "Golden Poo" award was poo all itself. Instead of factoring in real things, like worker wages and benefits, they wanked off on "OMG THEY CHARGE YOU $10 FOR LAUNCH DAY DLC THAT'S THE WORST THING."

    Eh, it was a reference, but I digress.

    My point is that EA, whether it was America's worse company or not, is still a pretty bad company,

    The WiiU just can't handle it - that's why. :creep:

    In all fairness, every company is terrible.

    Nintendo bends you over the bench with shit peripherals, Microsoft charges you for Xbox Live, and Sony took away Other OS. EA just becomes the wankercheif for all the butthurt in the games industry because of one useless and factually wrong award that no one bothered researching for.

    Hate to go off like this but I get so annoyed at the constant EA hate when they're just about as bad as every other company.

    I think everyone just wants something to blame, so they always go for EA.
