Battlefield 4 not coming to Wii U according to DICE

Battlefield 4 Promo

DICE creative director Lars Gustavsson has confirmed that Battlefield 4 will not be available on the Wii U. In an interview with Videogamer, he stated:

“I think overall for me as creative director, number one is to deliver a really great game and experience. Sometimes, at least for us, it’s focusing on what you do well and what you know well, and ensuring that you deliver something good than trying a bit too much, stretching yourself too thin and risking it. I’d rather play it safe, deliver something really good and then look at the future and what could possibly be done than trying a bit too hard and [failing].”

So there you have it, folks. John Riccitiello may not be the CEO of EA after the end of March, but the company is still unwilling to take risks on the Wii U until its a sure bet for them. It’s a shame to see the creative director of such a famous development studio admit that the Wii U is more risk than reward.

    Fuck EA.

      disqus wont let me curse wtf

      • dubYA

        My utter disdain for EA right now is too strong for Disqus to censor.

  • http://www.facebook.com/Realityglitch Christopher Coonan

    Or, EA is really putting the pressure on all their properties against Nintendo.

    • gobrowniesgo

      lt sure seems that way..l know what it is..Nin. doesn’t have always on always connected like nxtbox..

    • Revolution5268

      thats what there doing, im no seeing that happening to the ps4 at all.

  • Chiwawa

    fuck off, EA!!

    • Nintedward

      TBH. Nintendo has NEVER had this type of third party games so why should we care ? Look at 3DS , DS , Wii . all fantastic unique consoles WITHOUT that type of game. Let’s all be happy and gratefull the Wiiu is taking steps forward with games like Project cars , Watchdogs , Assassins creed , injustice and much more :)

      Let’s be serious guys. We all bought the Wiiu for 1st party exclusives and 2nd and 3rd part exclusives. Any multiplats/ports are just bonus !

      It’s the Mario karts , Zeldas , Smash bros , Xenoblades , etc etc why I bought wiiu not Battlefail 4.

      • Jimmy D. Fugate

        I like your way of thinking, sir. We are getting very high quality games from Nintendo as well as Ubisoft and Warner Bros. Interactive support.

      • Zelly Jeffers

        It’s different now because the excuse has always been “The system isn’t as powerful and can’t handle our super awesome game” and now that isn’t the case. Yet there’s still this prejudice against Nintendo.

        While it isn’t a game I’d necessarily pick up, it speaks volumes of the developers when they “Just can’t be bothered” to work with the Wii U, a system that is more than adequate.

      • Chiwawa

        yeah, youre right bro. I shouldnt of raged like that. :D

      • Billy_Perry

        I don’t want Nintendo to be some humble little company who keeps themselves to themselves and creates content for a small niche market. I want Nintendo to literally dominate the console gaming market, with both first and third party support. Nintendo has had good consoles without the third party support, however, with the third party support, they dominated I.E. NES SNES N64.

      • http://www.facebook.com/people/Adam-Shaun-Whitt/100000852876999 Adam Shaun Whitt

        I bought the Wii U expecting a unique experience on multiplats. I’m not getting what I expected, so my Wii U may go to Gamestop soon.

        • Nintedward

          Really ? Strange. Since when have people bought Nintendo for multiplats ? the SNES days ? when gaming was in its infancy.

          People buy Nintendo for a unique experience and for the immense 1st party content they provide and the exclusives that third parties always provide Nintendo with such as Wonderfull 101 for example.

          You shouldn’t of bought a Wiiu expecting it to replace your PC or replicate a 720,PS4. It’s different to those platforms . And in my opinion far more awesome :)

        • NkoSekirei

          dont tell me ur butthurt after EA made a mistake by not bringing battlefield 4 to the wii u well u know wat dude theres plenty of better games coming out soon for the wii u in coming months

      • Zorbo85

        True but nintendos sole purpose of the wii u was to BRING BACK THE CORE GAMER to nintendo were their exact words at last years E3.!!!
        That has failed so badly and puzzles me why nintendo decided to go this route when the wii was not for the hardcore gamer and it sold 100 million!!!
        Nintendo should have scraped that idea and just released a big nintendo game at launch instead of a lame rehash of mario bros wii!!

        • Nintedward

          Failed so badly ? dude…. console has been out for just over 4 months. How can anything fail after 4 months ? let’s see where its at in 2 years. Like the 3DS is 2 years old now. Still feels kinda new doesn’t it ? The 3DS has almost but not quite hit its full stride!

      • Rick van der Linde

        Mario Kart is all I need for my Wii U. I’ll probably get a PS4 just for BF4.

  • Chris Aita

    Getting real tired of your inadequate support for Wii U, EA.

    • http://www.youtube.com/azhood321 AZHood

      Not just the Wii U, but Nintendo in general.

      http://tinyurl.com/cv8nlf9

      Kinda one sided, as there are EA quotes left and right, but it goes to show you how complicated Nintendo and EA’s relationship is.

      • Chris Aita

        I want to buy Mass Effect for Wii U, but lo and behold the trilogy is released in a pack for every other console and pc. Oh and we don’t get future ME3 DLC for Wii U because to hell with logic. Same shit as Need for Speed U. Why is it that EA was very supportive when the Wii U was announced at E3 11 and now they are basically being stuck up pricks about the entire ordeal of Wii U owners not getting some of their games? I like EA’s games but I hate their company so much.

    • Suraj Alexander
      • Billy_Perry

        These petitions aren’t going to change shit. We as a community just simply need to buy more third party games that are on the Wii U and increase the attach rate of third party games per console. That will help encourage the developers that there are gamers that use the Wii U and want these types of games.

        • WiiUltra

          And more people need to buy the console too.

        • http://www.facebook.com/people/Adam-Shaun-Whitt/100000852876999 Adam Shaun Whitt

          That’s all I’ve been buying is 3rd party games. I even supported EA by buying Need for Speed Most Wanted U. If I knew this, I wouldn’t have bought NFS.

          • gobrowniesgo

            Criterion did a great job on it though.. l mean it’s kinda shallow in gameplay but lt’s pretty damn fun. l haven’t found the warp pipes in it yet..

      • LopsidedPasta

        Wow, so you want to force a company to sell THEIR products on the WiiU. You want to take away the ability for a company to have control of THEIR software that THEY work hard to produce. You sir, are an @$$hole. How would you like it if Nintendo were forced to put Zelda on the PS4? You can’t control a company to that extent. Doing that is unconstitutional and morally wrong.

        • gobrowniesgo

          But it’s ok for EA to do it though right? just wait till they try pullin some shit with the ps4. They won’t do it for NXTBX though. It looks like they’re going the route of no used games..

        • http://www.facebook.com/john.pope.18007218 John Pope

          You need to STFU

          • LopsidedPasta

            “NO! NO! ANYTHING BUT LOGIC!!!!” Lol

        • Metal_Man_v2

          I get what you’re saying to an extent. People really shouldn’t be making that big of a deal about it, and petitions really don’t do anything in most cases.

          However, Zelda is a first party title, and Battlefield is a 3rd party title. One is available on Nintendo consoles, and the other is available on everything BUT Nintendo consoles.

          As far as constitutionality, EA is an american company, and the first amendment of the US constitution is the right to assemble and petition, along with many other things.

          • LopsidedPasta

            But the petition could not take away property, which it would, if the petition actually worked. And regardless, Nintendo controls who has their IPs. EA controls who has theirs. That’s the way it has to be.

    • NkoSekirei

      well not a big loss for us and we all know how greedy and corrupt EA is well at least we get cod even though its almost the same thing every year but we got plenty of games coming soon so were fine

    • vastreammonster

      You should be more upset at your fellow drones who buy nothing but first party games, and at the top of the list should be Iwata for selling out to casuals.

      • Chris Aita

        With all due respect, most of my purchases for Wii U have been third party. I used to buy third party games all the time on other consoles. Now I have a Wii U which is my stop for those games as well as my first party games which I love as well. Nintendo is indeed my preferred company for games, but that doesn’t mean I am a drone by any means.

    • LonDonE247

      i own an game on all platforms, an i can tell u wii u not getting
      battlefield 4 is a blow,i wanted to see it on wii u to see what the wii u
      could do graphically! i dont care what people say, battlefield 3 was a
      AWESOME GAME! by far this generation,for the best multi player fps
      experience,i have spent more time on battlefield 3 then any other! i
      think one of the bigger reasons why bf4 is skipping wii u could be
      because of the lack of hard drive, dice an battlefield games are
      released buggy, an then patched,an then lots of map packs are also
      released, on ps3 my bf3 file size is way over 10gb,just for dlc an
      updates, an then on top of that another 2or3gb for the game install,
      none of this will be possible on wii u,an yes i know u can purchase a
      external hardrive, but the way dice an ea look at that is, not everyone
      will do this,an so this splits your market,an potential customers among
      the limited wii u owners,i think Nintendo made a massive mistake by not
      including a hard drive an a pro controller in every box! since so many
      3rd party companies wont bother porting to wii u because they are lazy
      wankers! an because the game pad takes a tiny bit of extra work,they
      wont bother, an to be honest with u,there is no way you can use the game
      pad for a long session,of online gaming an playing a fps, no way, the
      battery finishes to quick,an it gives your hands a ache, i know my game
      pad does to me,an so a game like bf4 would almost definitely need the
      pro controller an then also lots of storage space,since companies like
      ea an dice make more money of selling dlc map packs,hell bf3 got 6 mao
      packs,all at 2to3gb each, an then a further 2 gb patch with each
      update,an not having a hrd drive has hurt the wii u!

      • gobrowniesgo

        The U uses external HDD’s..so space would never be a problem..even the 32gb system could handle it. all thier memory is dedicated to gaming and apps..

        • LonDonE247

          my friend if u read my comment u would have clearly seen i stated the fact about external hard drives,but like i said above,not every wii u owner will bother with a external hard drive,an not every wii u owner would bother to buy a pro controller an so,this would mean the potential customers on the wii u platform would be cut in half,an thats a big problem,as i said above,most core gamers are put off by the game pad,me on the other hand,i love the damn thing,but realistically to sit an play a online fps,for long hours is not fee-sable! because the gamepad runs out of battery,an gives my hand a ache,an so the pro controller would have been perfect,but again,because the wii u dont include one,as a standard,that point is pointless! i dont see whats the point of Nintendo offering full retail downloads,when u cant even store more then one game on the memory,an after patches for all the games u own,an a couple of e shop virtual console games,the memory will always be a problem,an will require people without a external hard drive to constantly delete,an re download,also the wii u doesn’t even include a Ethernet port,LMAO! what serious online competitive gamer would play online with wifi? an yet again,the wii u owner because of Nintendo has to purchase more stuff,just to bring the wii u up to spec with 7 year old tech in the ps3 an 360! Nintendo made too many stupid mistakes with the wii u that my friend is a fact!

          • gobrowniesgo

            ok, so it’s ok for Sony and MS to have people buy HDD b/c the ones they came with were not big enough?..also kinect, move ect are all extra’s..

          • greengecko007

            500gb ps3

            32gb wii u

          • gobrowniesgo

            2TB+ with external HDD..for the U…

          • greengecko007

            That’s irrelevant. My point was that you said people buying ps3 and 360 are buying external storage because they are running out of it on the console. In most cases this isn’t true. 500gb ps3 and 360 versus 32gb Wii U.

          • gobrowniesgo

            yeah now, 4 months after they launched what did they have? Thats what l mean..you can buy a 360 that has a 4gb hdd n you have to get more. n the 500gb hdd for ps3 came out like last year. And l never said they were external..

          • greengecko007

            You really can’t read can you? You just said mentioned the option for external storage for the wii u. The rest of your comment is just nonsense and doesn’t make sense.

          • gobrowniesgo

            yes l said it about the U. but you were talking 360n ps3 having external hdd’s. l just made the point that when those two were launched most buyers had to purchase a bigger hdd. the 500gb ps3 n the 320gb 360, came out like last year.

          • LonDonE247

            not again this is total bullshit.i had a 60gb launch ps3, which was more then enough memory,compared to the wii u? LMAO stop talking nonsense,the wii u doesnt even come with a damn Ethernet port!! LOL yet another thing nintendo left out,also the wii u doesnt have a dolby codec,because nintendo were to cheap to pay the licensing fee,an so people with tvs with 5.1 dolby, or dts,wont be able to get true dolby sound,an so have to select stereo on the wii u options,unless yet again they buy a surround sound amp, so again, you have to buy a Ethernet adapter,a surround amp, an external hard drive, WAKE UP!! that is bullshit,an nintendo dropped the ball with the wii u plain an simple, dont get me wrong i love my wii u,but thats just because iam one of those guys who buys an games on ALL PLATFORMS! including pc, but the wii u takes the biscuit,an has way too many things missing, the system doesnt even play dvds, music cds,blue rays movies, NOTHING!! WTF??? the wii u is so below spec compared to functions of 7 year old ps3 its not even funny!!! LMAO!

          • gobrowniesgo

            ok, you are right to talk about sound outputs. but Nintendo has always been for strictly gaming. and it’s not any more expensive to get an external hdd than to get a 320gb hdd for 360..

          • LonDonE247

            exactly why i didnt bother to reply to him again,thanks for reading, gobrowniesgo obviously has no idea what hes talking about! i dont know why Nintendo fanboys are so retarded at times,its like no matter what you say,they just go on attack mode,regardless of if what you said was true or not! lol nice to see some one else on the comments section,who actually bothers to read the comments,an then think with his brain before just mindlessly attacking an replying to some one! one up vote for u good sir!!!

  • RonaldRayguns

    What he’s saying is if the Wii U could handle Battlefield in all it’s glory than it would be on the system. I dont care though, dont really like the game.

    • AAAkabob

      What he’s saying is they don’t want to spend the money to figure out the Wii U. So if they did try to make a game it would be half-assed cause they wouldn’t know how to program for it.

      • RonaldRayguns

        No, what I said. The Wii U will get some good games but it’s pretty weak compared to ps4 and the fisher-price gamepad is just stupid.

        • gobrowniesgo

          show me specs on how many of the 8 cores will be used for GAMING..

          • RyuNoHadouken

            i guarantee you God of War, Crysis 4, Uncharted 4, etc. will use all of those 8 cores from time to time throughout their campaigns

          • gobrowniesgo

            l guarentee that you are full of shit!

          • Rafael Saldana

            Lol stop feeding the trolls, they sound like cry baby Sony spokesmen that are jealouse that the wii U has the controller that can do anything

          • RonaldRayguns

            OK, after you show me specs on how the Wii U isn’t pretty weak compared to what we currently know about the PS4 specs………… Man I can’t wait for Zelda in 2016, anybody else. Ohh and what about the Metroid at the end of the consoles life, that’s gonna be great too.

          • gobrowniesgo

            yeah right! ‘lf’ Nin. ever went down you think they would work with sony? lt would never happen. And the ps4 may have more power but it’s going to run more than you think. The U is strictly for gaming. l bet the ps4 only has maybe 3 cores dedicated to gaming..n thats far stretched…

          • RonaldRayguns

            Nintendo’s never gonna go down, what u talkin bout?

          • gobrowniesgo

            thats the way l took what you wrote. thought you meant on the ps4..the console won’t die til like 2018-19..then we will all be playin on pc’s..the only one that would fail would be MS..They have to careful after this system. They have too many conflics of intrest in the pc market, could be seen as a monoploly..but l agree Nintendo won’t go down, ever. They have way too much cash..

          • greengecko007

            Because you don’t know how to read.

          • gobrowniesgo

            you can’t either! #MORON

          • greengecko007

            You just used a hashtag outside of twitter, and you call me a moron?

          • gobrowniesgo

            Thats right l just did! I never go on facebook or twitter anyways…why don’t you go look at wht you wrote on my other comment..

          • greengecko007

            Considering that’s frowned upon, because it makes you look stupid, I wouldn’t be very proud of that.

          • gobrowniesgo

            OH NO!! It’s the P.C. POLICE!!!

        • D.M.T

          You must be on drugs if you think that PS4’s 8GB of RAM will be used for gaming. Even PC games don’t use that much RAM so the PS4 won’t either. Half of it will be used for OS and other things.

          And you said Gamepad is stupid? Lol the touchscreen of the Gamepad is better than a touchpad on your DualShock 4. A touchpad, like the one on the Vita or laptop. There’s nothing cool about a fucking touchpad.

          Edit: And another thing, PS4 might be more powerful but it’s still an HD console like the Wii U so every Ps4 game can be ported to Wii U. If PC games can be ported to consoles than PS4 games can be ported to Wii U because PS4 is still less power than a high-end PC

          • AAAkabob

            This.

          • RyuNoHadouken

            8GB of ram—Crysis 3 would like to have a word with you,,,,actually, all graphic rich games on PC need at least 8GBs of ram to run in ultra(or max) settings….noob

          • gobrowniesgo

            GET YOUR FUCKING FACTS STRAIGHT! NO GAME USES MORE THAN A GIG OF RAM…

          • RyuNoHadouken
          • gobrowniesgo

            learn how to read

          • RyuNoHadouken

            no, you learn how to read…the MINIMUM system requirement is 2GB and max settings(if you scroll down the page) REQUIRES 8GB of ram

          • gobrowniesgo

            8gb MEMORY

          • RyuNoHadouken

            let me break it down for you…ram=random access MEMORY

          • gobrowniesgo

            ram was not even mentioned in that..the 8gb is for installing puroses..

          • RyuNoHadouken

            omg, im done…either youre completely fucking stupid or youre trolling

          • D.M.T

            Oh really? I’ll see if that’s true. PS4 is still weaker than a PC so no they wont use 8GB for PS4 games. You’ll see.

          • Revolution5268

            again all graphics not gameplay, thats what they need the 8gb of ram for.

          • RyuNoHadouken

            no shit

  • David

    I personally do not care as I play these high-quality games on my high-end PC, however I am aware that many people are limited to only their console. Thus, I believe It’s funny how they released Battlefield 3 for XBOX360 and Playstation3. Were those consoles capable of running Battlefield 3 with all its glory? Fuck no! They ported over a half-baked, bland product with poor vegetation and scale. It’s not like they wanted too, it’s because that’s all 256MB of RAM can afford you! Now with the Wii U you have more RAM a better CPU and a better GPU. Utilize that hardware EA and you could port a game better than what you released on the XBOX and PS3.

    • gobrowniesgo

      Yeah why don’t they just ask Criterion for help? They did a great job with NFSMWU..

  • Jonathan Grine

    Its not like Battlefield is all that great of a game. As long as the Wii U still gets Call of Duty that will be good for the people that enjoy those kinda games.

    • gobrowniesgo

      COD sux compaired to Battlefield..

      • Jonathan Grine

        Both are really to the point of just reskinning and paying for a full game every year when you could just have the base game for a few years with DLC packs every year.

        • Cloud W Omega

          … no battlefield is not… until 4 comes out it isnt

    • Gregory Edcius

      if activision steps up and give normal support with dlc and stuff they could dominate the fps market on wii u by the time EA thinks about porting battlefield 5 it would be too late to establish a userbase for them thats why i think ubisoft is doing a good job forget rayman legends for a minute ac3 has same support zombi u exclusive launch game watchdogs ac4 announced thats how you’re supposed to support a console not saying we wanna see 30 mil sales before we develop for it by that logic no console should have games for the first 3 years

  • AAAkabob

    That’s it officially not supporting EA and all companies under them.

  • Thomas Fitzgibbon

    Why do EA insist on having immature toddler tantrums against Nintendo because they didn’t want their (unstable) Origin network on their console nor those stupid micro-transactions. There is a reason you are the most hated company in America EA. Grow up and start acting like a real company like Nintendo.

    • vastreammonster

      The only people having tantrums are you drones.

  • gobrowniesgo

    Talk about takin your ball n going home..I will laugh when it doesn’t sell well…

    • RyuNoHadouken

      dont count on it…most CoD players like Battlefields campaign better….CoD sells more because of its multiplayer

      • gobrowniesgo

        lt’s obvious you have never played Battlefield online…

  • RyuNoHadouken

    all of yall bitching need to stop…what he’s saying is that the Wii U doesnt have a big enough install base to warrant porting a mutli-million dollar game to it…and he’s right…Battlefield 4 costs way more to make than anything out on the Wii U so far

    • http://www.facebook.com/VahLearnTine Adekunle Valentine Owolabi

      so why is it coming to a console that hasn’t even come out yet with zero consumer (PS4…)? Care to use that same logic to explain that?

      • RyuNoHadouken

        because the PS4 can be a straight port of the PC version with no extra resources having to be put into it. all they would have to do is map the inputs to the PS4 controller…that’ll take all of one week to do.

        • gobrowniesgo

          then why not just buy a pc? N they can do the same with the U..

          • RyuNoHadouken

            because a gaming rig powerful enough to run B4 in ultra settings would cost about 2 Gs…the average consumer cant afford a setup like that

          • ICHI

            My gaming rig is more powerful than a ps4 though, and it cost me £600…. with a monitor, and wired xbox controller :-) Cant cost too much more to make it run bf4 on ultra, though most games run on max now?

          • RyuNoHadouken

            600 pounds is 1200 US…and i bet youre still not running at max specs on games…and no, i wouldnt buy a pc gaming rig if i couldnt play the latest games on max settings with it

          • ICHI

            Its actually more like $900, the exchange rate hasn’t been that good for a few years now, and it runs everything i’ve thrown at it at full. Crysis 3 and tomb raider being the newest games. Maybe not the best choices but its all I’ve got to go on :-) And if my rig cant run it properly then the ps4 is going to have more problems with ports in the coming years than people think; which is my point.

          • RyuNoHadouken

            you need at least a gtx 680 or equivalent card to run Crysis 3 in max settings with a 40fps rate, at 1080p, with Anti-Aliasing turned off, my buddy achieves that with this setup:
            AMD FX-8320 8 core @3.5GHz
            ASUS Crosshair V Formula-Z mobo
            16GB Patriot Division 2, Viper Extreme RAM @2400MHz (Far more than enough for the game)
            1x GTX 680
            Seasonice Platinum 86
            to run at 100fps WITH anti-aliasing turned on and at 2560×1600(or 1600p), which is “maxed out”, you would need 2 gtx680 cards….and those cards are $500 a piece…so, either youre lying, or you got your PC parts off the black market for the price youre stating….im gonna go with the “you’re lying” part :)

          • ICHI

            Wow you hit the American stereotype I didn’t think actually existed! Something I dont understand so it must be either a terrorist or funding terrorism well done! lol. No I dont run it in 1600p and I dont run it at 100fps, but as only 1/3 people can tell the difference between 30/60fps I dont mind if it runs somewhere between :)
            And I bought most of my parts on Ebay relatively cheap, or is that the black market???? There’s nothing on your list you can’t buy for under a total of £600 here if you know where to look or to do a bit of botching yourself, the only thing which lets my computer down is my monitor is a bit poop but at least I can plug it into the TV every so often.

          • RyuNoHadouken

            i dont believe in that terrorist crap…its all media hype and propaganda to get the people behind our governments agenda with as little resistance as possible…our governments a bunch of crooks….but yeah, you got some good deals then…

        • Saul Rivera

          They can’t map the ps3 configuration on the wii u?…and use the same build???…in one week?????

          • RyuNoHadouken

            yes, but like i previously stated, theres not enough Wii U install base to warrant porting a high dollar production…especially since a more popular game like Black Ops 2 only sold 30,000 copies on Wii U out of an almost 4 million user install base….most Wii U owners arent military shooter fans

          • greengecko007

            Small investment for the largest and most successful video game publishing company in the world.

          • Saul Rivera

            But I freaking bought Black Ops 2 twice…one for my bros WiiU and for mine…and still we get no love =_=

    • http://www.facebook.com/people/Adam-Shaun-Whitt/100000852876999 Adam Shaun Whitt

      Yeah, well this is why. If Battlefield 4 was coming out for Wii U there would be more owners by then anticipating games like that coming to the Wii U. Companies using this excuse are contributing to the problem.

    • NkoSekirei

      bull$hit dude look how many people are on monster hunter ultimate,need for speed,bo2 and theres plenty of people on those games especially the ones that just came out and their selling out like crazy

      • RyuNoHadouken

        Black Ops 2 only sold 30,000 copies to a 4 million user install base…doesnt give other military shooters any confidence to release on Wii U…MH and NFS dont cost that much to make…MH is a remastered port and NFS is a straight port of the PC game…all they had to do was map the inputs to the gamepad…took all of one week

        • Clairvius

          Black Ops 2 didn’t break records on Wii U because it was a game that we all already owned on a older system why buy black ops on wii u when you beat it 12 times on 360 nothing new was added if it was a new game release it would do much better

          • RyuNoHadouken

            wrong…Black Ops 2 came out on other systems 5 days before Wii U release

          • Clairvius

            so everyone passed on wii u exclusives like SMBU or ZombieU for a game that they could have gotten on 360 or ps3 already even if it was only 5 days with a game as big as Black Ops 2 everyone who wanted it got it on launch noone waited on the the wii u release regardless to if they bought the system or not and unless you are a die hard collector very few people buy multiple copies of the same game

          • RyuNoHadouken

            i was saying that it came out less than a week before on other systems…people who bought a Wii U on day one knew they were gonna buy one on launch…they would have waited 5 days to buy it on Wii U if they wanted too…most Wii U players arent into mindless FPS…i only bought BLOPS 2 because, outside of ZombiU, there was nothing else good out to justify my purchase…might as well have some online fun with it

  • Petri

    Well, I might be skipping this then.
    Dont like the way they’re going with the series anyways.
    Now with yearly releases, theyre getting bit by bit closer to cod.

  • Milton Waddams

    EA continues to show why it’s one of the most hated companies year after year. Go against the company who’s last gen console sold upwards of 90 mil units and whose handheld is currently owning everything in sales, smart move EA.

    • Revolution5268

      EA should be nominated for a 3rd year of worst companies of America.

  • Julio

    Sorry EA your not taking my $60

  • http://www.facebook.com/elaine.breslin.5 Elaine Breslin

    Its not the install base because its coming to ps4 and xbox 3 with 0 install base, So EA are just being prats because Nintendo wont allow origin on the Wii U.

    • Laud

      Have they confirmed that it’s coming to those as well?

      • Metal_Man_v2

        No, BF4 isn’t confirmed for PS4 or nxtbox. It’s plausible to believe that they could, but right now it’s just a rumor. So I wouldn’t recommend anybody buying a PS4 or nxtbox counting on that game yet, since it IS confirmed that they won’t have backward compatibility.

        Here is the whole interview if you want more info, but most of it isn’t very crucial information.

        http://www.videogamer.com/xbox360/battlefield_4/news/battlefield_4_the_interview.html

        • http://www.facebook.com/people/Chris-Bingham/100000260255063 Chris Bingham

          Actually it pretty much was confirmed for PS4 ages ago.

          http://www.trustedreviews.com/news/battlefield-4-ps4-release-confirmed-by-ea-official

          • Metal_Man_v2

            This does seem to hint toward BF4 being available on the PS4 (doesn’t mention next xbox?), but isn’t outright confirming it. It’s enough proof for me though. It shows that they are probably planning to announce it at a later date, probably to build hype for next gen consoles.

            And lol, is this old news or something? Because the article in the link is dated from today :P

      • Lethal_Doze

        Yes, PS4 was confirmed during investor call session in Februry, EA CEO called it “stunning”. The game will come to next gen simple because those platforms will grow, there is no other way, while WiiU is a big question mark

        • Metal_Man_v2

          Hmm, I haven’t heard that. I tried to google search that but didn’t come up with anything. Battlefield 4 and the PS4 are both available for preorder now, but BF4 isn’t listed as a title you can preorder for the PS4 yet.

        • https://www.facebook.com/BlueLightningTechnicalServices Bob Wilkerson

          Only time will tell if the NextBox and PS4 will grow…. They too may start off slow depending on their price and what restrictions they have. The PS4 not natively playing PS3 games is a big negative in my book and we still have to find out confirmed details from Microsoft on the NextBox. I will most likely get the NextBox but history has shown me to wait until at least revision 2 with systems from Microsoft of Sony as they always seem to have hardware issues out of the gate.

    • vastreammonster

      Has nothing to do with origin, and more to do with the lack of sales from Wii U. The Wii U can’t even push COD.

      • Gregory Edcius

        crappy game with half ass support no dlc whatsoever and no comments on their forums if you talk about wii u dlc the thread gets locked and erased you cant even ask about dlc now are you gonna tell me thats fair treatment and do you really expect people to buy something thats inferior to other versions only because of choices the publisher makes

    • https://www.facebook.com/BlueLightningTechnicalServices Bob Wilkerson

      Just another lie like SimCity could not have been made to play offline

  • gobrowniesgo

    l would like to know how they see the nxtbx n ps4 as a sure bet when they haven’t even sold 1 unit..

    • Zorbo85

      That is simply because they have FAITH in the next consoles from microsoft and sony and the fact that the battlefield series sold millions on both consoles!!
      When will you nintendo slurpers wake up ni 3rd party will release a game on the wii until it has at least a 30 million fan base.
      Why u think ubisoft did a u turn on rayman and decided to also bring it out on ps3 and xbox as well?as bewteen them both 150 million wii u only 3 million!!!
      Wii u is dead!!!

      • jkalyj

        “The wii will die”, “Nintendo’s last console” 2006 – false prediction

        “Wii u is dead!!!” 2013 – unlikely
        You haven’t been the first to say it…
        You won’t be the last…
        But you also won’t be the first to be wrong :/
        Nor will you be the last to stop caring when it lives…
        Cause really…you just don’t care…
        You’re just here for the fun…
        And when you sit at home with your 720 or ps4…
        You won’t even remember this site. What you said, or why you said it.
        You won’t even care the wiiu exists and is selling fine.
        You will simply sit and enjoy the game before you…
        Thinking of your next game to buy.
        As is the life of people such as yourself…

  • Nintendofan118

    if you think the comment carefully trought you can read between the lines that he means it won’t come to wii u at launch but if it sells good on other platforms then they might port it over

  • Metal_Man_v2

    Saw this coming a mile away, but it stinks for those who may have had their hopes up for this game on Wii U. But that’s how EA works.

    Honestly though, it isn’t that big of a deal. From personal experience, Battlefield has never been very noob friendly, and the online community (at least on PSN) has some of the most elitist gaming snobs I’ve ever met.

    • https://twitter.com/Zorpix_Fang Zorpix

      Miiverse seems to be a bit tamer though. Everyone I’ve met on monster hunter is nice and polite

      • Metal_Man_v2

        Most of the people I’ve met on any online gaming service have been nice. PSN, XboxLive, and especially Miiverse. Unfortunately, when I played Battlefield 3 I was literally getting kicked from games and even servers for just performing badly at the game. How am I supposed to get better if you don’t let me play the game?

        • Laud

          I agree, the FPS community has always been like this but it’s gotten really bad this time around.

          If they aren’t willing to risk putting this game on the Wii U that means they aren’t putting them on next gen consoles.

          They aren’t giving last gen people a reason to make the transition to current gen, things could get ugly.

          • WiiUltra

            I don’t know Laud. I have a feeling they might put it on the other next gen consoles but thats just me.

          • [000]

            Actually, if PS4 and Xbox 720 have a similar start to Wii U, then there is a chance that they won’t get Battlefield 4 unless if it’s an early launch title.

          • Willgord

            They ARE releasing BF4 on the other next-gen consoles, it’s been confirmed. So yeah..

          • Metal_Man_v2

            He says in the interview that he can’t confirm that, unless you have more recent information from a different source.

          • Willgord

            My apologies, I read it in an other article reporting on the new gameplay footage but I guess they were just assuming.

          • Lethal_Doze

            they confirmed PS4 on inverstor calls session a while back, its not official press release, but it is comming to PS4/720

      • Chiwawa

        yeah. not like some of the trolling douches on COD. -_- monster hunter is awesome.

      • TheUnBiasedGamer

        Well, that’s partially because of Nintendo’s insane moderators.

    • NkoSekirei

      their still bitching they couldn t merge origin with nintendo network they are abunch of sore losers and they need to fking act like a mature game company not a 2 year old who wants to get his way

      • Metal_Man_v2

        They say that it’s for “business reasons”, but honestly, you are probably right. Battlefield runs through origin. No origin means no BF4 online, and since Wii U owners (myself included) don’t want more inferior ports from EA, they aren’t going to bring it.

        • Petri

          Well, need for speed logs me on origin.
          I think it was something about letting ea origin do the eshop.

    • Guest

      EA are horrible liars. They were bragging about the Wii U and its advantages, even talking about the advantages that Battlefield could have with the Wii U but they lied http://www.youtube.com/watch?feature=player_embedded&v=ImzCgwdPIAw#at=91

    • The Clockwork Being

      EA made promises and praised the Wii U. But now they are just like nevermind its not worth it forget what we said. THis video is frome the Nintendo conference were he praised Nintendo: http://www.youtube.com/watch?feature=player_embedded&v=ImzCgwdPIAw#at=91

    • gobrowniesgo

      l have BF3 for 360..lt depends on what you play, lf lt’s squad play like 4 teams of 4, you might get that but if it’s conquest,tdm,gun master ect. you probably won’t hear anything or get kicked…

    • Petri

      COD seems to have that community on every platform.
      Though COD’s are more filled with yelling little kids.
      BF 3 felt kind of a disappointment failed attempt to clone COD,
      so I will be placing my bets on ARMA 3 for now.

    • mikel334u2

      Yes, it might not be that big of a deal, but if you take into account all of the games that are skipping the Wii U that Wii U gamers won’t be able to play, then it becomes a big deal. I’m now doubting whether or not GTA V will come to Wii U, and right now, the only big-budget action games confirmed for the Wii U are Watch Dogs and AC IV. I thought BF3 was loads of fun, and I’m pretty upset that BF4 won’t be coming to the Wii U. I’d rather just go back to PC gaming. If Nintendo fails to make deals with 3rd-party companies, it’ll be like the Wii all over again.

  • EcksDee

    Good!

  • Zorbo85

    LOL stop moaning nintendo slurpers its OBVIOUS why 3rd party are staying away from the wii u at the moment it only has a 3 million fan base so why would developers waste 6 months bringing a game to it that may only sell a few hundred thousand copies?that would just be ludicrous!!
    Nintendo are stupid they should have released the wii u with a brand new mario game, a new wii sports game and a 250 bucks price tag and they easily would have sold millions more.
    When they released mario bros on the wii, wii already had a fan base of 65 million and thats why it sold an amazing 30 million!!!

    • trainerblack

      so from you’re statement ps4 & xbox 720 shouldn’t get any games if 3 million console or less are sold ok. well in the case you do know ps3 & 360 have they sold worst in 6 months? so what the different. game will come.

    • sdmac200600

      Hey man that’s true. No developer in their right mind would put one of their top selling triple A titles to an install base of 3 million. If they lauched with a 3D mario instead of the 2.5D mario, 10 mil Wii Us would have been sold buy next month or 2.

      • Revolution5268

        2d mario sell more than 3d mario thats a fact.

        • sdmac200600

          So why isn’t the Wii U flying off shelves then? The reason it sold so much on the Wii, DS and 3DS is because they had an established install base of 65 mil, 150 mil and 20 mil. It was never a launch title until now.

          Super mario 64 sold 292,310 the first week at launch of N64 in Japan(didn’t use the US numbers since VGChartz didn’t have a tab for it)
          New Super Mario Bros U sold 266,344 in US and 166,572. in Japan

          The numbers show that at an install base of 0 Mario 64 sold more than NSMBU in Japan and the US (even though I couldn’t get the numbers from the US, Japan still sold more Mario 64’s than they did NSMBU’s in US)

          • Revolution5268

            super mario 64 was a game that was first time mario in 3d, it was take it or leave it situation, nobody even bother about it was 3d. but the total sales is nothing compared to 2d mario, same goes with sunshine, galaxy and 2

          • sdmac200600

            It was also the first time and last time (don’t quote me on that) a 3D Mario was a launch title. I compared 2 launch titles. It isn’t fair to compare a launch title to a title that was released 2-5 years within a consoles/handhelds life cycle. If 2D Mario sell better than 3D Mario, then that should mean the Wii U should be flying off the shelves but it isn’t. Numbers don’t lie. At launch 3D sells better than 2D. Now in total, does the number of sales of 2D Mario’s shit on the 3D Mario’s? Absolutely, but in terms of launch titles, it’s up there but not beating the 3D Mario’s. I’m sure this won’t make a difference in the 2D Mario’s selling more than 3D Mario’s overall but are we including the 2D Mario’s before 3D was introduced? If so, it isn’t fair to include them but it shouldn’t change that overall 2D sell better than 3D. My point was that 3D sells better than 2D at a launch of a system (well only Nintendo systems).

          • Revolution5268

            if it was a 3d mario at launch it would have done much worst than nsmbU.

    • caleb poynter

      i hope you know that the wiiu has sold more on its launch then the 360 did it has more then enuf time to pick up sales

      • Zorbo85

        LMFAO the ps3 6 years ago at launch was 600 bucks!!!!the wiiu is 350 bucks and still it aint selling!!!

  • Zorbo85

    Nintendos biggest mistake was saying that they wanted to bring back the core gamer for the wiiu…LOL that has been a massive failure!!!
    Look at the original wii that was for zero hard core gamers and it sold 100 million easily beating ps3 and xbox life time sales!!!
    Nintendos idea about the core gamer has already destroyed it!!

    • trainerblack

      they left the core for third party. wii u have core titles as a matter of fact. shooters those not necessary mean core it goes as concept of the game. so it’s doing ok for a brand new console. missing a few games don’t hurt if u have years to make up for it. but besides that’s wanna play that game i mention?

    • Zelly Jeffers

      Ohai! Hardcore gamer here. I’m 33, female, and I’ve been gaming since I was 5-ish (Donkey Kong Game & Watch! Woot!), so that’s almost 30 years under my belt.

      ‘Hardcore’ gamer = FPS player dudes only = myth.

      • jkalyj

        Well then, do your thang girl! XD we need more Female gamers! I Agree, i miss the days people knew “Hardcore” Gamers were people who commited themselves to playing all types of games as if it were a passion. Instead of playing them just to showboat trophies and be FPS elitists. Though even CoD,Halo,BF,and gears can be entertaining at times. They have soured the gaming world in an awful way. But it seems maybe the gaming direction is slowly shifting again. I wonder what the next genre fad will be. hopefully something that shows what true gaming is about. :)

    • http://www.mpt-online.eu/ Sylux

      Shooters Hardcore gaming? Since when? I’ve been gaming for pretty much 30+ years myself aswell, and shooters are by no mean hardcore games at all, I play shooters with my friends online and local for the fun of it, You want to know what playing hardcore games means?

      Hmm Final Fantasy (60-80 hours for story alone, with no sidequests at all and you won’t be max level then either) Monster Hunter 3(U) (atleast 300 hours to get decent geared) Xenoblade Chronicles (at 280+ hours now on my new game + and still I have not found every named npc connection and still I have not solved every single quest in the game) Now that my friend is what “REAL” gamers call Hardcore.

      Not some single player shooter which you finish in 6-10 hours and let’s you play online just to prove you are “so-called” a “Hardcore gamer” and you get a high rank for killing noobs, even World of Warcraft has more hardcore elements then pretty much any shooter these days, just try to get your arena ranking at 2400+ Player vs Player (1vs1, 2vs2, 3vs3 and 5vs5) and keep that rating, then when you did that, do the same thing in Battlegrounds (10vs10, 15vs15).

      Seriously, don’t youngsters like you know the true definition of hardcore nowadays? Even Mega Man 1 (NES) Robowarrior (NES) and Castlevania (NES) are more hardcore then most shooters these days.

  • Zorbo85

    Also the 3ds has sold 30 million while the vita only 4 million………the vita will never catch the 3ds yet nintendo keep releasing all these awesome games for it when there whole attention should be the wii u!!!

    Wii u should have launched with a brand new mario game not a lame rehash of the mario bros wii game!!!
    The reason why u was launched early was to get a year head start on microsoft and sony……yet people who were thinking of buying a wii poo are now waiting for the price and games of the next gen consoles!!!
    Nintendo has had their change and failed again 350 bucks for wii u with only a little bit better graphics than the 6 year old ps3 3?

    To be honest, this decision was probably made while John Riccitiello was CEO. He will have sealed the fate of many as of yet unreleased games. It will take some time before we see how EA steps up, post Riccitiello.

    smh ea you’re hate for nintendo get the better of u. i don’t understand how u confirmed last year for wii u then say no we don’t wanna look in to the future. but yet ps4 & 720. il won’t buy no more of you’re games or recommend them.

  • Zorbo85

    Nintendo should stick to making handhelds as no one can touch them, one of the main reasons the wii was so popular was that it was 300 bucks cheaper than the 600 bucks ps3!!!

        aww just as your hero nintendo has failed once again with the launch of a console….3ds and now even worse with the wii u!!
        Go and cry as your wii u and nintendo are finished once the next gen arrives!!

        • Revolution5268

          aww someones butthurt, whats next you going to called that console ot next gen as well.

    • LopsidedPasta

      You are a retard. “How dare the NEXT GEN WIIU be at a higher price than the 7 YEAR OLD COMPETITION.” LOL, do you have any idea how expensive the 360 and PS3 were at launch? You have to be drunk, retarded, or both. Probably both.

      • Zorbo85

        NEXT GEN WII U?LMFAO!!!! the wii u only just has a little bit better graphics than the 6 year old ps3 u MORON!!!
        Yeah lets charge 350 bucks for 6 year graphics tech!!!
        LMFAO

        • LopsidedPasta

          Anything the PS3 can do, the Wii U can do better. Much better. Case closed. And why would you shell out 200 dollars for a console that will be dead in 6 months, and not 300 dollars for a console that will be supported for 8 years?

          • sithWiiU

            Now you’re being a ignorant Nintendrone. Sony will support PS3 for at least 3 years. they have a 10 year plan for it, & they kept true to their word with PS2. Not only that, but unlike Nintendo, Sony is still releasing games on PS3 when PS4 is coming soon. Don’t be butt hurt just cause Nintendo ditched its hard core fans for soccer moms.

            PS3>>> Wii U

          • David

            ” Don’t be butt hurt just cause Nintendo ditched its hard core fans for soccer moms.”

            That made me laugh. I have a Wii U and it’s hard not to be disappointed at Nintendo. They are always late. Late on creating an online infrastructure, hardware, releasing games, advertising, system updates, OS improvements, etc. That being said; the idiotic, bland, generic, ignorant, illogical, unreasoning, darn right stupid fan boys will defend Nintendo from its mistakes. These drones are responsible for a crappy launch and sub-par software lineup since they support Nintendo on everything they do. In order for a company to improve, there needs to be constructive feedback and criticism. Fan boys are going to look the other way and down vote my post.

          • LopsidedPasta

            If you have read any of my past comments, you know I’m not a ‘Nintendrone’. Look up facts before you start talking shit. Oh! Good for Sony! They still support old hardware. And… how does this make them better? The PS3 will be dead when the PS4 is released, regardless of Sony’s support. Just like how the Wii is dead right now. You must be abusing crack to be so stupid.

        • Jimmy D. Fugate

          Nintendo has NEVER been about processing power or graphics. NEVER. The Wii U being less powerful than PS4 and Nextbox should be no surprise. HOWEVER, the term “NEXT GEN” refers to the time window in which a console is made, not by what tech it’s made with. Let’s get real the Wii U is leaps and bounds more powerful than the Wii was and has advantages over PS3/360. So get your head outta your ass because Nintendo is not about power but about innovation.

  • RedChu

    Too many developers say they don’t want to take risks, which is understandable due to financial concerns and the like, but sometimes you’ve gotta take those risks. I don’t really care as I probably wouldn’t buy it anyway, but I’m sure there are tons of other Wii U gamers who would.

    It seems like Nintendo’s going to be riding mainly on first-party games yet again unless developers start taking risks, though that is the main reason I buy Nintendo platforms anyway; third-party games are just a bonus.

  • Zorbo85

    Nintendo have made the same mistake sony made, the ps2 sold 140 million and due to this they then priced the ps3 at 600 bucks thinking every ps2 owner would fork out and buy one………..that failed epicly.
    Nintendo have done the same the wii has sold 100 million, they priced the wii u way to high again thinking every wii owner would go out and buy one…..100 million wii owners………….3 million wii u owners!!!
    LMFAO

  • Zorbo85

    price cut and a new ambassador program coming DEFINATLEY!!!

    • Revolution5268

      you still won’t buy it.

  • Linskarmo

    I’m honestly not surprised, and I’ve never tried Battlefield anyway.

  • Lloyd o’brien

    Not bothered… generic shooters that attracting annoying teenagers can stay away.

  • http://www.facebook.com/badams6686 Ben Adams

    People need to stop blasting EA. The real issue is that Nintendo has failed to make the system appeal to gamers by and large. Mostly due to a subpar launch lineup, no desired first party titles (dont you dare say NSMB or Nintendoland – no one bought a Wii U just for those – and if you say you did your a liar), and continued delays on confirmed system sellers (Pikmin, Rayman, Bayonetta, W101, etc). The system was outsold in Japan where people love Nintendo by every other system on the market. People are not buying the system. It is a horrible financial investment for companies to spend time developing for the system right now. The only person who can fix that is NIntendo. And to do that they need to release NEW games from BELOVED IPS that push the new hardware. Mario , Donkey Kong , Zelda , Metroid, StarFox, SSB ….even one of these would help. But they are making the same mistake they did with the Wii. First party titles are not going to come out until 2014, or later – and by then the systems fate for third party support will be decided.

    I love my Wii U. But EA is doing the right thing here. Nintendo fucked up.

    • Zorbo85

      EXACTLY preach it!!!!
      The marketing to the price,lame mario rehash, no new wii sports game bundled in with wii u,rayman cancelled, pikmin cancelled!!!
      All the big games zelda smash bros,mario kart etc will not come out till xmas or 2014 and nintendo will have zero 3rd party titles coming out!!
      Patcher was right when he said wii u should have been released 2 years ago as if they did all the big gun games would be out just after E3 and in turn to take on the mext gen ps4!!!

    • NkoSekirei

      nope it seem we got a troll thats in bed with EA gtfo noob

    • David

      You’re right. NkoSekirei is just an ignorant fan boy.

    BUT WAAAIT A MINUTE!
    Does this mean it’s not coming to the other Next Gen’s as well?
    I mean, he did say “working on something that you’re familiar with”
    so aint no way in hell he is familiar with PS4 and not the Wii U

  • Zorbo85

    Wii u one good game since launch and that was need for speed!!so 1 good game in 4 months?
    LMFAO

    • Jimmy D. Fugate

      I think the biggest troll of the week award goes to you, sir.

      • Zorbo85

        • NkoSekirei

          how about stfu retard and act ur age troll

        • Jimmy D. Fugate

          Why the fuck would I cry over a 12 year old troll on Wii U Daily? I could care less about Battlefield 4 and am fine with Injustice, RE Revelations, Deus Ex and others. No one ever said the Wii U was gonna be “the next big thing” so there’s no argument to be had here. Not to mention, it seems you have next to no life as every hour your posting negative horseshit on this blog. Get off the computer and get a job.

        • Revolution5268

          aww…feel like big man in this site boy?

    • Ace J

      monster hunters 3 and zombiu are good games. i dont care too much for nintendoland or super mario u but i have to admit they are pretty fun. trine 2 is great and so is the cave. 8 bit run is good too. see how ignorant you look now? i could go on but i can tell your an ass backwards troll

    • NkoSekirei

      really dude theres lego city undercover,monster hunter ultimate and in 2 months bayonetta 2 but it seems u trolls dont even read articles really well

  • Easter_egg27

    F*ck you EA and your Origin!

  • Zorbo85

    The 3ds has destroyed the vita and has a 27 million lead already………so why is nintendo constently bringing out big games when all their focus should be on fixing the wii u issues!!!

    • NkoSekirei

      they are bitch havent u read that theres a big update coming in april fixing the loading issues and other things but it seems u failed on keeping track of wats been going on weekly on here

      • Zorbo85

        Wow a fix for loading issues!!!LMFAO!!!!you moron the wii u is selling pathetic due to abysmal games and nearly every big game getting delayed!!!

    • Revolution5268

      ask sony the same thing with ps3 to vita situation.

  • FackMaaii

    Why are people only bashing EA? Nintendo has done nothing to redeem themselves in this situation. Remember this is a relationship between EA AND NINTENDO. Nintendo should also step up when partnerships wither.

    • Zorbo85

      EXACTLY!!!Nintendo has done nothing to reassure fans that big things are coming for the wii u,since its launch all wii u owners have got his delayed games,delayed games,rayman losing its exclusivity,pikmin being delayed,lame marketing,priced way to high!!!

      • GermGerm

        Um, did you completely miss the January Nintendo Direct?

        • Revolution5268

          He does not even know what Nintendo direct is.

      • Ace J

        its not priced high at all. guarantee you wont say that when the new ps4 or the new xbox comes out *bias*

    • FackMaaii

      Wow so many fanboys voting down my comment. Stop acting like Nintendo has done nothing wrong ever.

    • greengecko007

      All relationships and partnerships are two way streets. Neither company is solely responsible.

  • HydePark1980

    Now while I consider the new Bioshock skipping the Wii U to be a real loss, this game is just another military FPS. Let’s be real here I seriously doubt anyone is going to lose any sleep over this not appearing on the system.

  • Zorbo85

    The ps vita for a year in japan sold 9k each week for a year…..then when it gets a price cut for the past month sales have gone up 300 percent which goes to show you one of the main issues of the vita were its price!!!
    Why can nintendo not see that it was the price drop after 6 months that saved the 3ds,the wii u needs a price drop and fast!!!

  • http://www.facebook.com/jason.d.mcnutt Jason D McNutt

  • NintendoYOU

    Wiiudaily really needs to take ACM out of the popular games list

  • Zorbo85

    The top 20 selling wii games 16 of them were nintendo titles!!!!so why on earth did they decide for the wii u to try and bring back the hardcore gamer and give crapisoft 3rd party rights to which again they have failed just like they did with the 3ds!!!
    Nintendo do not need the likes of crapisoft or EA all they need are themselves,capcom and and the makers of monster hunter……SCREW everyone else!!!

    • ICHI

      Dont capcom make monster hunter? Or do they just publish?

      Err… Quote: “Need for Speed is miles superior to Xbox and PS3 and is an awesome game…… if only other third parties where as loyal!!!”

      You know what you just wrote here right? And who made Need for Speed Most Wanted you think? I might be wrong but that game is from EA (Sarcasm), only Criterion polished and upgraded the WiiU version.

      (In other words they ported the PC release. And I believe Criterion is also a daughter company of EA, on this I might be wrong though, and cba to look it up)

  • Tecpedz94

    Why dont you tell EA to go F**** themselves i cant wait for the WiiU to be big and make as i shit load of money so then they will look stupid or have no choice to bring their games to the console.

    The ps3 launched at 600 bucks the wii u is 350 bucks so kinda obvious why the ps3 did not sell really well at launch!!
    The wii u is 250 bucks cheaper and still selling pathetic!!!

  • The Clockwork Being

    OH let me refine the quote for you Lars Gustavsson : I just don’t want to try a new way of gaming. I mean do you imagine the work we have to go threw. We should just re do the same thing and do it on the same boring controls. I mean we don’t want to display the maps on the game pad or used it to improve the battlefield experience. EA just say it already that you don’t want to support the Wii U even thought it has what all the FPS players would want. I mean a gamepad adds a lot and the pro controller has 80 hours of game time. I AM GETTING TIRED OF YOUR SH*T EA.

    • Zorbo85

      LOL they released need for speed wii u which is the wii u best rated game so far…..stop crying!!!

    • sithWiiU

      How are traditional controls boring? If anything, keep the gimmicks out. That’s why I never bought a Wii or the Move or Kinect.

  • Barters

    Well….my PS3 was traded in to get a Wii U. I typically buy these sorts of games…I guess to see how crap they are year after year, but I buy them.

    EA, you won’t be getting BF4 purchase from me this year.

    • sithWiiU

      Why would you sell your PS3/ that was a dumb move.

      • Jimmy D. Fugate

        Probably because he wants a Wii U and PS4…

    Whatever DICE, or should I say EA. I’m tired of your nonsense. I still remember articles from the 90’s when your execs actually bragged about how they could single handedly cause a console’s failure by simply choosing to not support it. Looks like the arrogance continues. I have a 360 and could buy this game if I want but I’m not giving them a dime anymore. If I ever do get it it will be used and I won’t pay them to go online. I’ll settle for the single player.

  • Russel Bowersox

    Hah, thats okay, I don’t want Nintendo to get bogged down by another shooter. It’s probably just personally preference, but I think shooters were ment for PC anyway.

  • Martin Kearney

    They don’t need to “try a bit too hard.” It’s a stupid excuse. They could just port the game and make the map on the gamepad. Do sort of what they did with Call of Duty. It’s not much, but it’s worth a try at least.

    You want COD and battlefield? go buy a ps3 or xbox 360 and quit crying!!!

    The top 20 selling wii games 16 were from nintendo…….case closed!!!

  • MujuraNoKamen

    another missed opportunity because of EA’s tantrum with Nintendo.
    never mind, I wasn’t bothered by this anyway but it would have been nice. before anyone talks of 3rd parties abandoning Wii U, this is EA being stupid, no other reason! they had plenty of time to make a Wii U port but didn’t try because of the bad relationship (EA’s fault)

    • Zorbo85

      LOL bad relationship?EA just released need for speed wii u which is the best rated wii u game!!!!

      • MujuraNoKamen

        NFS Wii U was the best version for sure but credit for that goes to Criterion. EA are annoyed by Nintendo not using EA’s less than impressive origin service. This is why they cancelled Crysis 3, BF4 for Wii U, refuse to give all the DLC to Wii U ports, they’ve slandered the Wii U a number of times saying it’s last gen, and a I’m sure there’s a few other things I can’t remember right now. NFS is the only good port of an EA game, their other Wii U great titles are being cancelled or neglected by EA.

  • cymBALTA

    If you want to try and help get Battlefield 4 on the Wii U, Then sign Suraj’s petition look for it in the comments Section. Even if you don’t like battlefield sign it! It will show that the Wii U community cares enough about it’s system and it’s games!

  • gobrowniesgo

    You do realize we are talking millions of dollars not hundreds right?

  • RyuNoHadouken

    yes, but Wii Us install base doesnt warrant a port of it unless they can pre-order at least 3 million units…are there even that many Wii Us in the wild?

  • gobrowniesgo

    over..

  • dubYA

    But other games like Madden and such shouldn’t be as hard to port. If they’d just bring the damn games to Wii U on the same day and date as the other versions and not half-ass it while leaving out key features, things could change for the better. It would likely inspire consumer confidence, and both Nintendo and EA would gain from it.

  • greengecko007

    You believe that lie? Fact is that it had nothing to do with the Wii U not having a large install base, EA is just holding grudges like a child. For EA, the largest and most successful video game company in the world, doing a straight Wii U port, with light gamepad use, would be a small investment for a potential large sum of money. Even it it didn’t sell well they would still make money from stores stocking it.

  • gobrowniesgo

    lf you compare sales from the first 4 months after launch, the U is doing better than 360 n ps3

  • Laud

    Lol, how many of the PS3 and X360s were bought by mothers for their preteen children?

  • NkoSekirei

    no dude this isnt nintendos fault its EA cause they tried to take over wii u online service by merging origin with nintendo network and EA would of had more control over the online service then nintendo but nintendo said no which was a good thing and we dodge a bullet after origin got hacked not to long ago.
