15 EA games skipping Wii U because of game engine

New Frostbite engine doesn't run on Wii U, resulting in over 15 games skipping the console.

EA recently revealed that they are not investing in Wii U games, and that heavy hitters such the next Madden was skipping the console. EA has been one of the least supportive third party publishers on the Wii, and it looks like it’s not getting any better anytime soon.

EA Wii U gamesWe previously reported that Frostbite 3, the new, state of the art game engine from EA’s DICE studio, will be skipping the Wii U because Frostbite 2 ran poorly on it. Now it’s revealed that EA has 15 games in the pipeline that are built using Frostbite 3. And all of those games are skipping the Wii U, unfortunately.

Among the games skipping the Wii U are the next Need For Speed racer, the upcoming multiplayer shooter Battlefield 4, the next Mass Effect game, and the next Dragon Age game as well.

However, don’t panic. The Wii U is still getting plenty of cool third party games. Ubisoft is bringing Watch Dogs, Assassin’s Creed 4, and Rayman Legends later this year. And Warner Bros. is bringing Batman: Arkham Origins to the Wii U as well.

Not to mention the tons of first party Nintendo titles. Among those are a new 3D Mario game, Mario Kart U, Super Smash Bros U, and Zelda Wind Waker HD. Check out our top 10 Wii U games at E3 2013 for more.

Which brings us to our question of the day: if you could prick one EA game for release on the Wii U, which game would you pick?

Around the web
  • david jarman

    That’s retard cause nfs:most wanted uses the frostbite 2 and its awesome on the wii u!
    Not to mention cryengine 3 runs like a dream on the wii u which I find better then frostbite 2. Why are we posting this shit again? Picking scabs?

    • garf02

      slow news day?

    • safcalibur

      pretty sure need for speed most wanted u uses the chameleon engine, not FB2

      • david jarman

        Everywhere I’ve looked people say frostbite 2. I know chameleon is criterion’s engine.

        • Stephen

          I know Frostbite. I know Chameleon. NFSMW 2012 runs on Chameleon.

          • david jarman

            Either way cryengine 3 is a beast which ran great on wii u. Like or not it actually renders water and environments better then frostbite 2 and does awesome with destruction. So I call bullshit on them.

  • Richard Josh – Pabiloon

    I was hoping for Fuse on Wii U but well… Don’t care anymore

    • garf02

      from Insomnia, a Dev that his only decent IPs are PS4 exclusive.. no chance

  • Archiq09

    Im sure EA has says “frostbite 2 and 3″ dont work on WiiU” for other studio forget WiiU -_- and WiiU has better graphic to 360 and 360 frostbite 3 work.. well EA lie.

  • Mario

    I officially hate EA.

    • RonnieMexico

      maybez dey hate you too

      • garf02

        EA is not a dev

      • Alex

        I also hate EA, I thought they were cool, I thought they were better than Activision, and enjoy their games but now their completely cruel, now their games suck, and they are the worst American Companies 2 years in a row.

      • Almondo Joseph Chioino

        this is the only good comment you’ve posted, Ron. its quite obvious EA is only in it for the money. you still lack intelligence though, and your grammar is getting better, SLIGHTLY. you’ve actually fully spelled a word this time! actually a few! round of applause everybody! for Ron. he managed to spell “hate”, “you”, and “too” correctly and properly in a sentence. you got a 90% on word number 1, though. “maybe” (no z, gangsta.) we will get you there don’t worry. have faith.

      • Mario

        So? I can’t be friends with everyone!

  • garf02

    >Promise Battle field 3 to WiiU (which Run with FB2)
    >Release Need for Speed: Most wanted on WiiU and is the best version so far (Run on FB2
    >Battlefield 4 will run on PS360 (with FB3)
    >Claim WiiU is not capable to run FB2 and FB3

    …right

    • Archiq09

      EA is worse studio in the world … is not for nothing xD

      • RonnieMexico

        howz r dey da worst

        • Michael Jurado

          by winning the award two times in a row XD

        • Almondo Joseph Chioino

          gtfo dipshit. majority rule declared them the worst twice annually.

      • DragonSilths

        Studio…Do they actually make games these days? Thought they were mainly a publisher like Activision.

    • LopsidedPasta

      This guy goes pretty deep as to why EA is full of shit. Watch the video, and anyone with even a sliver of a brain will be convinced. Even John Kinsley.

      • garf02

        DW, I know about the Origin affair

        • LopsidedPasta

          DW?

          • garf02

            Dont Worry

      • Michael Jurado

        yeah this is “obvious bull shit” love that line from the video lol

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

      NFS:MW runs on the Chameleon engine, not FB2.

    • Stephen

      Need for Speed Most Wanted runs on a Chameleon engine, not Frostbite.
      Get your facts straight before bashing EA. :)

      • Michael Jurado

        regardless of what engine they used need for speed looked better on the wii u than on any other system with the PC being the best looking one

  • RonnieMexico

    niggaz b stressin 2 much on dis site fukin putos

  • Huzefa Javed

    It’s not the engine, EA are just pissed Nintendo didn’t use origin as the Wii U’s Operating System.

    • Michael Jurado

      thank god they didn’t use origin that thing is pathetic have you seen it on BF3?

      • Christian Schoff

        No. How bad?

  • leafsfan73

    I guess it’s a poorly designed engine that’s not scalable. Or maybe they don’t want to bother as part of their vendetta against nintendo.(umm, the later) Hard to believe such a large company is run by children.

    • garf02

      word is EA dont even know how the fuck FB engine even work, every update, is huge as fuck and bring more problems than the ones it solve

    • DragonSilths

      They tried to change 1 single letter in the coding to get it working on Wii U, said nope that didnt get it working at 100% oh well guess the Wii U cant handle it. They are lazy, butthurt, haters.

  • Edward Dudley

    Sounds like John Riccitiello wasn’t the problem. I hope EA goes bankrupt and has to sell there IP’s.

    • garf02

      by the time they get dry of money all their IPs will be crap anyway,. look at what they did to Dead Space

      • Edward Dudley

        There is always Reboots.

  • future

    need for speed most wanted runs on Frostbite 2 and its as fast as the pc 1 so EA are full off it, they said wii u wouldn’t run frostbite 2 cos EA wanted Nintendo to put Origion on and they said no ,that’s why Ea has spat the dummy

    • DragonSilths

      Backwards. EA wanted the Nintendo Network to get absorbed into Origin so they got all of it and Nintendo wouldnt have had any online at all on the Wii U.

    • http://twitter.com/HenryC_Bass Henry Chavez

      Actually NFSMWU doesn’t run on frostbite.

  • Michael Jurado

    omg noooooo we don’t get need for speed D: .. oh wait I don’t care since nintendo has far better racing games. I’m not getting madden either aww man I guess i’ll just go outside and play football. oh what no battlefield 4 pshh idc BF1-4 all suck, missing out on mass effect 4 …lmao I haven’t even bought mass effect 1 so again I don’t care. Bottom line is EA I DO NOT CARE if you skip on the wii u I am not missing out on any damn thing :P

    • Selina Kyle

      There never was a Battlefield 1.

      • Michael Jurado

        goes too show you how much i care about EA games :P

  • mikel334u2

    Hate for EA aside, I was looking forward to Mass Effect Trilogy, Battlefield 4, and Dead Space 3 on the Wii U. It really is a shame.

  • Christian Schoff

    That’s bullshit!They’re totally lying just because Nintendo wouldn’t let them use Origin as the primary source of Miiverse! They withdrew all their support after that happened. That’s why the Wii U was so slow at first. Because Nintendo had to work fast to make up for EA being assholes.

  • MetroidZero

    The GPGPU has their panties in a bunch. Wii U is more powerful than PS360. We know that Battlefield 4 is coming to PS360; therefore, we know EA isn’t trying hard enough with the Wii U.

    • Michael Jurado

      With decisions like the ones they make EA will make just enough money to go bankrupt XD

  • uPadWatcher

    Screw EA!

  • Guest

    Wrong EA, wrong, you at least be honest with your pathetic excuses…

    Anyway Nintendo is doing wrong too…Reggie promised AAA games and the popular franchises will be on Wii U and after the E3 2012 Reggie simply disappeared from the map…

    • garf02

      Nintendo left Release window to 3rd party (as they always bitch how their games dont sell next to N games), they did it a a sign of really wanting to build up trust again, they could have just release 3D mario U and sell like crack.

      what was 3rd party reaction?
      >Crappy, overpriced ports
      after that EA was supposed to supply N the games to cover the hole till 1st party release, but once they bailed out, that created the dry we see right now

      • The Clockwork Being

        Yess the dry period was supposed to be covered by the 3rd party games. Obviously the Nintendo games would own every third party if they had been released at the same time. Now when the Wii U will pick in sales, the only people that will benefit with this will be Ubioft, Indies and Nintendo.(possibly activision). EA and some other companies will rush in to get in the hype train but it will be to late. After this happens they will complain about poor sales on the Wii U

        • garf02

          there are companies that even when havent release anything yet too WiiU are not attacking it either, Namco, MGS publisher, Bethesda, ETc, so I have my hopes they will suport N if the userbase grows

          • The Clockwork Being

            Konami better make the next metal gear for Wii U. Weren’t they the ones that BEGGED Solid Snake to be included in Brawl even though there wasn’t any metal gear games on the Wii. This will be the best way to pay Nintendo back.

          • garf02

            if konami put MGS Legacy on wiiu, Ill sent me a box of chocolate and a love letter, every week, untill 8th gen end.

            kojima stated one he loved the Gamepad Idea and would like to try to make a MG game that used it at its full potential

          • The Clockwork Being

            They should so put the MGS Legacy on Wii U. Why not do it two months before they release MGS 5 and MGS Grond Zeroes, if they release it for the Wii U. Im happy Kojima loves the gamepad idea. The game pad could offer alot in the Wii U version of a metal gear game. If they do the a MGS remake with gamepad added features or at least of TV play then I will be greatful

        • DragonSilths

          Activision could benifit greatly with Destiny being on Wii U. Other then that all I want (3rd party wise) on Wii U is Namco Bandai with a Tales Of Symphonia 3 game and Capcom with Monster Hunter and dare I say it…poor old Megaman. Also want a Bomberman game lol.

          • The Clockwork Being

            Well we can rest assured that Capcom and Namco Badai will be supporting the Wii U.(already supporting the 3DS with project X Zone and alot of games+helping to make the next Super Smash). We can only hope more people jump on the Wii U hype train before it takes off. LOL for Bomberman imagine it online, the amount of rage quit will be phenomenal

  • The Clockwork Being

    That’s bullshit!They’re totally lying just because Nintendo wouldn’t let them use Origin as the primary source of online shop! They withdrew all their support after that happened. That’s why the Wii U was so slow at first. Because Nintendo had to work fast to make up for EA being assholes. -Christian Schoff

    This guy is right. EA is making a big scene with this orgin bullshit. They should just accept the fact that Nintendo said no and not blackmail them. But obviously blackmail never stopped Nintendo’s success

    • Christian Schoff

      Really dude? Really? You’re just gonna copy and paste my entire post?

      • The Clockwork Being

        Sorry dude. Edited and gave you credit. Happy

    • Christian Schoff

      You double posted bro.

      • Fvaco

        Sorry, I thought I deleted the first one

    • DragonSilths

      Reggie didnt disappear. He has appeared in some Nintendo Directs. But Nintendo can try all they want to get these well known games but if a company (EA) hates Nintendo theres nothing Nintendo can do about it so thats not their fault. Unless you want Nintendo to bend over and let EA rape them just so you can have a few shit EA games on the Wii U in which case…just gtfo.

  • sdmac200600

    Nobody cares about EA anymore. once they were great and now they just take shits on their consumers.

    • RonnieMexico

      I carez bout EA

      • Edward Dudley

        One person cares about EA. We as consumers control the power over these companies. If we don’t buy their games they fail. EA is burning too many bridges. I like my Wii U and if they don’t want to make games for it, my money will go towards Nintendo, Capcom, Warner Bros and Ubisoft.

        • Guest

          Capcom as well.

        • RonnieMexico

          I threw mi wii u away whenz I heard bout the bad reports from wall st. bout da dismal sales puto..

          • Edward Dudley

            So you gave up on a system 6 months in? You lack patience. The good games are coming within the year.

          • RonnieMexico

            pati3nce??? fuk if wall st. gav3 up on nintendo I amz goin to fukin list3n man

          • Edward Dudley

            The Mario Kart, Smash Bros, Zelda, Yoshi, Retros IP, and Pikmin are coming. I wouldn’t trust Wall St. These games sell systems every time. If I was a gambling man I wouldn’t bet against Nintendo is all I’m saying.

          • RonnieMexico

            manz u hav3 to listen to wall st. I trust allz dem hard workin men….dey dont lie…..I gav3 up on nintendo

          • Edward Dudley

            The stocks rose for Nintendo. Maybe that had to do with the 3DS mostly, but I have faith that Nintendo will turn it around just like they did with the 3DS. Once Zelda and Mario games come the systems will sell like hotcakes. Plus I’m sure right around the time the new PS4 and X-Box infinity come, Nintendo will cut the price on the Wii U.

          • Steve Anatala

            In his defense honky is too funny to be taken offensively lol. I haven’t read his posts so don’t know what else he said but honky always makes me laugh

          • Alex

            Hey stop being a Mexican racist, gangster, and out of control person. What is wrong with you, you threw away a WiiU just because it wasn’t selling so if let’s say PS4 and XBox 720 doesn’t sell well you will throw it away?

          • Almondo Joseph Chioino

            hes a mexican, wetback, hood nigga gangsta? yeah im almost positive hes just trolling you all now lol. the most spot on title someone gave him in these posts is Uneducated. and on top of that referencing wall street? oh man, my sides are hurting. this is “slap my knee” funny.

          • Alex

            Your confusing me.

          • Cerus98

            Most kids these days do. All they know is chat speak since their parents give them cell phones to text with when they’re old enough to walk. Proper grammar, spelling and anything handwritten is a dying art nowadays. Don’t worry, they get a rude awakening when they hit college and their professors refuse to read or accept any correspondence containing chat speak.

          • John Raybell

            lol yeah for sure.

          • LopsidedPasta

            Lol. Says the person who called me a ‘nigga’ (another misspelling). If you think that I was being racist by calling you uneducated, then YOU are racist, because you believe that all *fill in a race here* are uneducated. Dipshit. OH NO! I was just being racist again!! smh

          • Almondo Joseph Chioino

            again. even if hes a “finely dressed, blonde haired, blue eyed white gentleman, and going to college” he is definitely lacking intelligence. lack of intelligence is the opinion im deriving out of all his posts. whether he be a troll or not.

        Check and Mate.

        • Michael Jurado

          I posted a comment because, i’m part of wii u daily and i want my opinions heard. I’m sick of hearing EA sucks i’m sick of hearing the games they half ass for nintendo aren’t as great as other consoles i’m sick of EA which is why I just don’t care

    • Nintedward

      The only people who care about EA are mostly common , casual gamers.

      How many people do you know who only play CoD , Fifa (or Madden) and Minecraft ? I know shit tons of little farts like that. They aint gamers they’re casuals.

      Yeah EA owns some great developers and IP’s . But not that many and not that many worth caring about.

      I think Bioware are fantastic especially considering they made one of my favorite games ever (KOTOR 1 and 2). That’s about as far is it goes for me with EA. Sometimes i’m obliged to play Fifa with friends , but I actually prefer Konami’s PES series…

      • Squid

        Agreed.

        • Ducked

          Why did they down you agreeing?

          • zhenyaivan

            Logic!

      • John Raybell

        first off EA has nothing todo with COD and minecraft, just kinda funny you named games that EA didn’t make, while talking crap on EA. not a big deal it just seemed odd lol

        • Edward Dudley

          COD is Activision.

          • John Raybell

            lol tell that to Nintedward lol. see how i said “first off EA has nothing todo with COD” this imply’s that EA has nothing to do with COD lol. im fully aware of this, and its why i said what i did. notice how i was replying to the guy above me . but yeah thanks for telling me what every gamer known to man already knows, lol :)

          • Edward Dudley

            I am in agreement. I was just commenting on who makes COD games. No need to be all sensitive about it.

          • John Raybell

            It was the fact that you told me, and not the guy that needed to be told, it just seemed silly, its like dude, look at the guy above me, for that msg you sent was towards and for him :) thats all

          • Edward Dudley

            It was a simple message. COD is Activision. Where in that statement should you take it as a knock on you. I was replying to what you said for Nintedward. It’s not that big of a deal.

        • Nintedward

          First off I never implied that EA did make CoD or minecraft. I was just grouping together EA’s games with the sort of common game that all fake gamers seem to play.

          EA is most just a load of common crappy franchises. A load of yearly releases except for a couple of franchises…

          • Arthur Jarret

            It’s a shame they ruined and discontinued so many fantastic titles. Does anyone remember bullfrog? They made great titles such as Theme park and Magic Carpet. They were bought by EA…

            I’d love another (on-line) magic carpet game… (sniffle)

            Remember when they did work together with nintendo to make an exclusive wii SSX game, or before that put Mario, luigi and peach in ssx on tour, and in nba street 3?… that’s the EA I’m missing…

          • briwas101

            The wii ssx game sucked.
            SSX on the ps2 was infinitely better.
            Its amazing that an OLDER SYSTEM actually looked and played better than the wii.
            Of course, this is how it has been for quite some time now, with nintendo releasing weak systems that suck.

          • http://twitter.com/SeroReviews SeroReviews

            People used to care more about the history of videogames… “Nintendo always release weak systems”, oh my eyes…

          • briwas101

            I apologize.
            Nintendo made the NES and SNES and THEN went with weak systems.
            So it was false for me to say they always make weak systems.
            They made 2 that werent.
            Correction accepted.

          • Steve Anatala

            Um N64 was more powerful than PS1 and Saturn. Gamecube was more powerful than PS2 and a little less powerful than Xbox. So only the wii and wii u are weak systems in the sense of graphics. And as a long time Nintendo gamer who has played about the same time as you, saying Ocarina was the last thing they offered is not true. Pikmin and smash brothers for instance. And um lets see sony and microsoft have made…ZERO games. Yes another fact gamers love to overlook. Sony and microsoft don’t MAKE games. They pay others to make them for them and make them look good. So even if Nintendo rehashes the same stuff over and over its still more effort than someone who just pays other people to make games for them.

          • Steve Anatala

            And their rehashes are far better than most new games for sony and microsoft. MOST not ALL. I can’t actually think of any games from either that are better but I’m sure there are I just don’t feel like thinking about all the games cause honestly its time for me to go smoke some pot and get off the comments section.

            What are you talking about? The WiiU is the only console Nintendo made with better graphics then the other consoles! Even better then the PS3 and Xbox 360 graphics! Have you even seen the console!? Or are you still confusing it for the Wii?

          • Steve Anatala

            Dude I’m talking about Wii U compared to PS4 and XBOX 720 not PS3 or XBOX 360. I have a Wii U so definitely not confusing it with the wii which I also own. I’m not saying Wii U is weak, but its pretty much confirmed not to be as powerful as PS4 or XBOX 720. Can’t tell if you are serious or trolling…

          • Mario

            What? Are you saying that I’m a troll? Well that’s disrespectful! Look, I’m not saying that the PS4 and Xbox360 have “bad graphics”, In fact, I bet they’ll be better then the PS3 and Xbox360.

          • david jarman

            Uhm. The GameCube was more powerful then the ps2. The only main reason developers gripe was having to use the mini disc. GameCube games were smooth and crisp while ps2 was very jaggy. GameCube could render 8 layers of texture per pass while ps2 could only do 2. GameCube 485mhz while ps2 is at 300 MHz. I know CPU does mean everything there’s more but I think you get the picture.

          • briwas101

            And by the way, i grew up playing atari and then NES, SNES, n64….. and have been gaming for 26 years

            So its not like im some 13 year old kid whose first system was an xbox.
            I appreciate what Nintendo did 20-30 years ago, but as a long-time gamer Nintendo has not had anything to offer since Ocarina of Time which was like 15 years ago.
            As much as nintendo fanboys like to talk about nintendo being innovative, they havent done jack in 20 years. Its 2013 and Nintendo thinks it is breaking boundaries by releasing a 2d Mario game.
            Really? After all these years they finally have an HD system almost a decade after their competitors and their FIRST IDEA is to release a 2d mario game????
            Imagine if Pong was still being thrust upon as as if it was groundbreaking.
            PONG HD!!!!!! WOOHOOO
            Nintendo is stuck in the past, they make their games and their systems with an 80′s and early 90′s mentality and we left those decades a long time ago.
            So yes, Nintendo has a very big place in video game history, unfortunately it is just that: history.
            Nintendo can only cling to the past because it has nothing to offer in the future.

            But isn’t the present made by the past? Without a past, there’s no present. And you can’t really tell what it’ll happen in the future.

          • david jarman

            What’s innovating is how you play it. Graphics aren’t what makes a game innovating. You can have the best graphics in the world and it would not be innovating cause you would still play the same game in the same way or manner. I love the game pad! It gives more options as to what can be done in a game. I don’t know how old you are but controllers have change quite a bit since video games started and each time there’s always that core of people who yell “if at broke don’t fix it!” ” You’re making it too complicated!”-its time for change not just better graphics.
            This why gaming hasn’t truly evolved is because people just want better graphics. Stronger, more powerful processors can open doors but in order to walk through them doors I believe you need a strong way to interface with to become more part of the game.

            there is no such thing as fake gamers, i play and love minecraft + i play and love all nintendo franchises, iv’e been playing games since i was like 5 on 1998 or 99 and me liking minecraft has nothing to do with my gaming abilities or any one elses

          • http://twitter.com/SeroReviews SeroReviews

            Okay, that’s you. But that’s not the whole planet. The majority of people who play Minecraft are casual gamers, you can’t deny that. Nintedward is just stating a fact.

          • greengecko007

            And where is that “fact” coming from? Has every person who plays Minecraft been aksed, “Are you a casual gamer, or a hardcore gamer?” Nintedward just generalized everybody who plays those games. Even worse, he implied that they aren’t even gamers. If you play video games as a hobby, even if it’s more casual and lighthearted games, you are a gamer. If we could stop with the Elitist BS and stop trying to think higher of ourselves because we don’t play CoD or Minecracft, that would be great. For someone, I expected Nintendo fans to not act so elitist…

          • Steve Anatala

            Every person I know who plays minecraft is a casual gamer, NO serious “hardcore” gamers I know play minecraft. Is it a fact that all people who play minecraft are casuals? No. But typically, it seems that way.

          • zajac1661

            I have seen some of the most dedicated players playing minecraft. More dedicated than i would ever be. Games with a community alway has and will always have players being better from other players. Casuality is in every game. Being dedicated to a certain game, has nothing to do with being “pro” or not. That is not how it works.

          • Steve Anatala

            I was just saying it seems that way from people I know but I also stated that it is NOT a fact that all people who play minecraft are casuals, just from my personal experience. Everyone has some odd game they may like that may not seem “hardcore.” Guilty pleasures if you wanna call it that, but then again you shouldn’t feel guilty liking something that you like…

          • zajac1661

            That is right. Casuality can have quite a broad meaning. It is even being used as a “casual” term by some people, to describe casuality towards their own casual behaviour. Setting it up on Black/White paper about who belongs to casuality like you describe above, is a subjective opinion, and as you say not a fact. Now it is time to hit the couch. No more hangover time to speak of subjects i certainly never could nor would debate with my better half of a wife.

          • tronic307

            But we are just as elitist as the other fanboys, maybe not quite as obnoxious. I’m multi-platform, but I prefer Nintendo. My rule is PC first, unless it’s a console exclusive.
            I get the HANDFUL of standout exclusives on PS360, most multiplats on PC, and every first-party Nintendo game that doesn’t plain suck. It’s extremely rare that I skip a Nintendo game; the others I could just take or leave.

          • zajac1661

            Casual. If the given player plays that given game more than you, mastering it more than you, then you would become the casual gamer in that players eyes. Are you speaking about “casual” consumer behaviour, or casual as in being casual when alot of players play the same game? Or casual as being below a certain skill in playing, compared to better players. The word casual is thrown around like a sort of “in and “out” segment in weird ways.

          • david jarman

            I’ve always thought of “casual gamers” as though type that just play here and there. Gamers that don’t play as often and usually just like games they can pick up and go without too much story involved. Which of course mean they probably don’t go out and buy all the big triple aaa console/PC games quite often or at all. Meaning since one doesn’t play as often doesn’t buy as often.

          • zajac1661

            Yeah. That would probarly be the way i think of it as a general description as well.

          • Nintedward

            Obviously lots of real hardcore gamers play CoD , Fifa , Minecraft aswell as other games.

            I’m just saying the sort of fake gamer who has a 360 and plays JUST Fifa , CoD , Minecraft. That’s it.

            The UK is infested with fake gamers like that. Real gamers are the sort who will be playing Pikmin 3 , the last of us , etc games like that. Not just the same old shit….

          • zajac1661

            Fake computer gamer? generalizing for easy consumption, by saying that certain games, makes you a somewhat “untrue” computer gamer, on a given preferable system, is probarly some of the most shortheaded bs i have heard in a looong time. I grew up playing nes back in the 80′s. Amiga, commodore, and all the consoles you can think of + the pc. I like to play certain games with a sticking community. But i certainly also appreciate playing a broad variety of games. Hell.. I would probarly game my life away, if i had no interest in my career, family and health. But the kids and teenagers i see of today, especially in the online community, are pointing at each other as if playing games serves a given truth of what is real/cool and not. It does not matter if you gamed a life away on tetris, played different games 15 hours everyday, or at a friend 2 hours every week. There is no truth about being a gamer no matter if you play smurfs on the ipad, or still hang onto quake and leisure suit larry. There is no elitedegree in playing games like this.. Come on.

            for sure, and yeah i saw what you did it just seemed funny. but yeah losing EA isn’t a big deal at all :)…..

          • Nintedward

            If Nintendo makes their own NFL game (maybe even a Nintendo one like Super Mario Strikers charged) then they don’t need EA one bit lol. And if they can get Konami (Japanese) to put PES on the Wiiu..

          • John Raybell

            yeah a Mario football would be cool, the soccer and tennis games they made were lots of fun, played those games for hours and hours and hours lol. Mario tennis was like crack when it came out lol. but yeah either way, no big loss, hell I have my wii for nintendo games and exclusives and my pc for third party, so EA not being on wiiu doesn’t mean jack when I can play better version of those shitty EA games on my PC lol

      • http://www.facebook.com/christopher.acuna2 Christopher Acuna

        my only gripe with not having EA games is, no Bioware games. It’s BS to think Frostbite 2 does not run as good or better then how it runs on PS3 or 360. Something fishy going on somewhere.

        • BAMM

          I heard some people saying EA had already tested the Frostbite 3 engine on the Wii U for BF4, it worked fine but apparently EA half-assed it so they could use it as an excuse to not support Nintendo because supposedly they wanted to take over Nintendo’s online network for Wii U and obviously Nintendo said no

          • Robknoxious1

            I believe that.

          • http://www.facebook.com/christopher.acuna2 Christopher Acuna

            I would definitely believe that. There is absolutely no reason why Frostbite 2 would run at full capacity and Frostbite 3 running at minimal to moderate capacity on the WiiU. There are two reasons why EA would stop publishing for WiiU.

            1. Today’s gamer is just not as interested in Nintendo as yesterday’s gamer.

            2. Nintendo not letting EA sync Origin to the Nintendo Network.

          • HotInEER

            How can people believe this? Only way a developer would do this is if they are not making money on a particular system. If EA makes games and no one buys them on the Wii U, why make them? Way too many fanbois out here making excuses.

            I’m not a fan of EA’s business model and all of the extra ways they try to screw people out of their money, but if they thought they could make money on the Wii U, they would release games for it.

          • BAMM

            But how many games has EA made for the Wii U at this point? A lot of these games that are being cancelled are the majority of games most people buy from EA anyway so if they released for Wii U and work, which I have a feeling they do, they would definitely sell

          • SoulSilverZero

            I agree. I bet the new engine could run perfectly on Wii U, but EA didn’t like Nintendo, so they said the new engine wouldn’t run on it. Same with FB2, it ran perfectly, but they used an lie to say it ran poorly on the platform.

      • MARIO’SMOUSTACH

            The gamepad would work so well with the current NHL controls too. With the analog stick above the buttons, it would make the shooting even easier :D (not that it isn’t easy on the other consolers lol).

          • Ducked

            Couldn’t agree more

      • briwas101

        You use a definition of casuals that NO ONE ELSE USES.

        You can’t just make up your own definition.

        According to you, casuals are anyone who doesn’t play nintendo.

        Thats funny, because Nintendo is for CASUAL GAMERS.

        Nintendo even SPECIFICALLY TARGETED casual gamers with the wii.

        Sony didnt target casuals, and neither did microsoft.

        THE ONLY ONE to target casuals was NINTENDO.

        Your definition of “casuals” is actually the OPPOSITE of what a casual really is.

        Hardcore gamers do not play little kiddie games, that is what CASUALS DO.

        • Steve Anatala

          You say you have played video games for so long yet you actually do SOUND like one of those 13 year old kids who started off with an xbox. The whole kiddie games thing is only for actual kids who think by shooting guns they are tough and mature. Having a creative artistic world to explore is what gaming is about, not just blindly shooting things in a bland world that looks just like our own. I won’t deny that wii did cater to casuals too much, thats definitely true. They pulled a smart move though and it worked. They didn’t do so well with gamecube and needed something to try and get some extra cash and it worked. Not the best tactic but unfortunately they don’t have anywhere near the amount of money that sony and microsoft have since they are primarily a game company and don’t make camers, TVs, computers, blu ray players, and such. So they can’t afford as many risks, and unfortunately that can affect their decisions. Wii had flaws but Mario galaxy one and 2 for instance were great, and so were the zelda games. Donkey Kong Country was also great among others. Do I wish there were more games? Of course, and do I wish there were less wii fit games and stuff? Of course. Unfortunately they are only one company and can’t only make so many games at a time. Its funny how one developer will work on ONE game at a time and take say 2 years to make it and everyones happy but Nintendo works on like 5 games at a time plus games on their handheld and people are upset saying they don’t make enough games. I am totally with you on them needing some new IPs, I would love to see some. Hopefully Shiggsy new game will be amazing but time will tell. But I can’t deny I still love the “rehashes” of the games they make. Shake up their current IPs and get some new ones out and I’m happy. Anyway now I’m REALLY gonna go smoke that bowl and get off..

        • Nintedward

          The heck are you talking about ?

          Look. All I mentioned was the stereotypical fake gamer. They play CoD , Fifa (Or madden) and Minecraft on a xbox 360. That’s it.

          NOW , if you play those franchises aswell as all the other good stuff on Nintendo , Playstation , Xbox and PC then you aint the casual gamer I am refering to.

          Just buying and Playing CoD and Fifa and Minecraft in 1 year is a casual gamer. They aint playing Ni no Kuni , Fire emblem , Luigi’s mansion 2 , the last of us , Dark souls , Bioshock , Pikmin , etc et fucking cetera.

          Someone who plays just tablet or phone games isn’t even a casual gamer in my book. They’re not on the gaming radar.

        • zajac1661

          You can even use casual and pro as a definition in the so called kiddie games you speak of. Casuality can mean alot. You actually just defined your own casual truth.

      • GeddyBoy

        To say CoD and Minecraft or any title on a gaming console is casual is quite utterly naive and pathetic. Any person who has purchased a dedicated gaming system is technically a “Hardcore” gamer. Your clearly hating upon big franchises simply because they are big, many people do it because they feel a certain franchise i.e Call of Duty is diverting attention away from another franchise i.e Battlefield and they feel the latter franchise is under-appreciated due to there opinion of the latter franchise. They are then impulsed into disliking the more attentative franchise because of there opinion no matter how enjoyable the franchise maybe, even if you were to enjoy the experience of playing CoD your mind will be made up that BF is the better franchise because it is what youve come to know and support. It is basic psychology and it applies here. Your simply lashing out due to the fact you dislike these games because they are huge games in the gaming community. A gamer is simply someone who enjoys playing games, but they are differentiated by many because of the games they play and basic human discrimination. But if you put it into rational terms and are unbiased towards such things, you may come to understand that Casual Gamers are the people that dont mind playing a game, but dont feel impulsed to do so, such as mobile gaming and smartphone gaming. A Hardcore gamer is a person who enjoys gaming and will search out a gaming experience for themselves and will then purchase that experience for a substantial price, knowing they will devote time and effort into experiencing said product.

        • http://www.facebook.com/chantal.sa.smith Chantal Smith

          I don’t agree with the statement about people who buy dedicated gaming systems are hardcore gamers. My mother bought a psp for herself to play Luxor, the very epitome of a casual game. (And she only uses it for Luxor, like she only uses her kindle fire for scrabble -_-)

      • Nobody

        Last time I checked, if you played games period, you are a gamer. Even if you are a casual player. I must admit, I casually play games myself. Nothing like playing a game like Tetris, Sodoku, or Tetravex when on the go, and then coming home to play something like Sin and Punishment or Dead Space.

    • John George

      I dont think EA is taking a shit on their consumers, just they are running all their future games on the magnificent Frostbite 3 Engine and the WiiU can’t run it. If it could run Frostbite 3 then all these games would be on the WiiU.

      • sdmac200600

        I wasn’t saying they were shitting of Nintendo owners. I was talking about their consumers in general. EA is lying out the ass. Wii U can’t run FB3 YET 7-8 year old hardware can? Bullshit. They said the Wii U can barely run FB2 yet NFS is best looking console version…….

        • Edward Dudley

          Actually I don’t think they used FB2 to make NFSMW on the WiiU. I do find it hard though that Frostbite 2 or 3 is having a hard time running on Wii U.

      they have never been great, even back in the n64 days I remember them sucking, they made ok games, but they were always poorly done, again lazy ports like we see today, EA has always been kind of a crappy company, and never ever ever has cared about who buys there games, just as long as somebody does.

      • Steve Anatala

        One great game EA made that probably NOBODY will agree with me on haha: Michael Jordan Chaos in the Windy City. Hahaha I loved that game. Sure it makes no sense but if you actually played it through it was pretty fun and I would love to see it on the virtual console which obviously ain’t happening. Haven’t played it in almost 20 years and would love to play though it again lol. And its my opinion that its great, and I know many won’t agree with it.

      The good news is that their is probably going to be a Star Wars game on Nintendo since Disney owns Star Wars and I hope Disney forces EA to make a good port on the WiiU like on PC version.

          Not really Disney can do what ever they want on Star Wars and not EA, and Disney wants it on all systems including Nintendo.

          • John Raybell

            EA has exclusive rights to starwars games, EA is no longer making titles for wii u, and Disney isnt the publisher its EA and again EA isnt making games on wii u. this isn’t Disneys choice anymore, its fully 100% up to EA if they want to, and they wont, because they stopped all projects for wii u and future titles as well. I wish people like you would stop posting that kind of lack of understanding, Its very easy to understand. NO EA NO STARWARS. PLease everyone just stop with this starwars crap its not going to happen and its retarded to think that it is, knowing what we all know, or should know by now, read past NEWS ON HERE, GO TO IGN, GO TO GAME INFORMER this has all been talked about and confirmed.

            Calm down man don’t get too offensive, since EA owns it(I wish it didn’t) and even dough I don’t like Star Wars (except Force Unleash) I just want to see WiiU getting support.

          • John Raybell

            I am calm, and I would like support as well, but its annoying, If EA says no Nintendo titles would one expect to see madden on the wii u, No, so why would one expect to see another EA title on wii u? In any case its really not a big deal, we will have plenty of games to play soon, I see this being like the wii or 3ds, xbxo360, all slow starts, but now all are doing great. Nintendo’s titles alone will be worth it. If you want third party just build a gaming PC :)

      If people didn’t care, no one would be reading this article or posting they don’t care. You want to know who does care? The person who says they don’t care. Bottom line is this is going to hurt the Wii U and it’s a little alarming that Nintendo didn’t make this system state of the art or compatible for major 3rd party developers.

      With that said, I still love mine and will enjoy all of the 1st party games.

      • sdmac200600

        Just because you read and comment on an article does not mean you care about it. It’s information proving more of a point that EA is a bullshit company and as a result no one cares for them. You don’t see anyone on this site saying, “OH EA PLEASE PLEASE MAKE BATTLEFIELD 4 ON WII U. PLEASE PUT MADDEN ON WII U OR I WILL CRY!!!!!!!!!” I don’t care for EA. I have a PS3 and I will have a PS4 so I don’t care if no EA games won’t be on Wii U. Am I going to buy, BF4, Madden 25, Mass effect 4 if they make one, And the next simcity if they are going to make one? Hell no cause I couldn’t give a shit about EA. People has been saying lack of third party support on Nintendo consoles will kill Nintendo for 15+ years and you see how that’s turning out. Wii had the worst third party support in console history (probably not but it was very bad) and the Wii has sold 100 million. The Wii U will be fine. Third party isn’t what sells Nintendo consoles. It’s their first party titles that do.

    • val berger

      Oh boy, 500 comments here really show how nobody cares about EA. I really wish, some fans could be a bit more honest to themselves. No question, EA is a huge load of shit, but still it wouldn’t hurt if they’d support Nintendo. Not as much as it hurts that they don’t. ppl always acting like they don’t need UbiSoft, EA and whoever is about to piss them off don’t really seem to see things as they are. Nintendo. Needs. Every. Dev. They. Can. Get.

      • sdmac200600

        And how many of them 500 comments says that they still care about EA? As I said to some other guy, you can comment under an article, it does not mean you give a shit about it’s contents. Of course it wouldn’t hurt EA if they support but Nintendo does not need them. That don’t need all the 3rd party they can get. The Wii proved that. Now the thing with Ubisoft after they said they will delay the Wii U verision of rayman until the other consoles versions was ridiculously retarded and fans lied about not liking Ubisoft for doing that. Nobody liked EA to begin with so they aren’t lying at all.

        • val berger

          Of course you give a shit. That’s how online publishing works. If people wouldn’t care like you say, they just wouldn’t read it. Or maybe they woud read it but why commenting that they don’t care? 500 times? Psychology for beginners. I don’t really know what you’re trying to explain to me here. Nintendo is totally suffering like never before with a gaming system and the biggest third party publisher is turning their back on them and you really expect fans to not care? Just do the maths, it is an absolutely natural reaction to care. Maybe you should really work on your perception. Of course those fans are hurt by the load of shit EA is throwing at them and EA is known as being a totally money-focused heartless company, but still one of the biggest players in the industry. If someone like that blocks their support, it’s just not looking that good. I don’t wanna cry about how poor Nintendo’s position might be or might not be, all I’m sayin is that it’s understandable that this bothers people and everyone who tries to act if it doesn’t is just a liar. No matter if people like EA or not (and usually they don’t) Nintendo can need every helping hand they got and there is nothing bad to admit that. And whether you like EAs games or not, EA would have more than one helping hand.

          • sdmac200600

            Let me give you an analogy then. You see a girl (or boy depending on your gender) that is just god awful and you look at her and comments about out he/she looks. “Damn that’s one ugly ass person.” Does that mean you gave a shit about him/her? Ok now lets say 500 other people did the same thing. Do they give a shit abut her? I want you to answer that for me in your next comment to me please. “Nintendo is totally suffering like never before with a gaming system…” It’s 6 months within the Wii U’s life cycle with no killer apps yet in a month, it sold faster than the ps3 and 360 in a worst economy than 2005 and 2006. Yeah that’s totally struggling. Now the sales now. Of course, they are lacking but as I said, there is no killer app on the Wii U and no game on the Wii U looks any better than last/current besides NFS. There is absolutely no reason to buy a Wii U for multiplats that run worst than systems you already have”…it’s understandable that this bothers people and everyone who tries to act if it doesn’t is just a liar.” Uh no. You said it yourself in a different sentence. “Of course those fans are hurt by the load of shit EA is throwing at them and EA is known as being a totally money-focused heartless company…” That’s why the don’t care about EA anymore. Your words says it. “…one of the biggest players in the industry.” Exactly. ONE of the biggest players in the industry. No EA support does not mean no support from any big 3rd party publisher. As I said, Any EA game not coming to the Wii U is not going to effect because I’m getting a PS4 and I have a PS3. I don’t care about EA or their games. I have not owned an EA game since Madden 06 I believe. I didn’t buy a Wii U for multiplats. I bought one for my all time favorite franchises that I grew up with.

          • val berger

            if 500 people are commenting about someone being ugly, compared to other people who only got …maybe half the amount of comments, then this is absolutely something, that seems to concern people. its not even relevant if all of them are saying that he/she’s ugly. it’s about polarizing here. if you are talking about PS4 here, then this alone will generate traffic, as people will express their need to point out how they are SO NOT BUYING that system because it’s not from Nintendo. Still the more traffic this issue is generating, the better for sony. It’s the same thing that can be observed in every industry. go on any android-techblog and look out for any iPhone-newsthread. people will just comment there to point out how they hate iphones and how superior their system is. because it’s also polarizing the targetgroups. if you would do the same thing with nokia-phones, it would generate far less traffic. not because the product is better or worse but because it’s marketing is not working as well. and that’s the thing with EA. Because they are like the mcdonalds, starbucks, H&M, IKEA of videogaming, they are polarizing in a way that mobilizes their customers. In marketing it doesn’t really matter if the traffic is against you. it’s a nintendo-fansite, so what would you expect. but if people wouldn’t really mind, they just wouldn’t mind at all instead of writing it down. But don’t get e wrong. I wouldn’t say, all of this is great advertising for EA. Of course they don’t look too good (not just here but in general) but it still shows how big they are. And no, it’s not like EA is one of like 20 companies of similar size. there’s only like Ubisoft and …. I wouldn’t even say that Ubisoft is really as big as them. I think many people really underestimate, what EA really is. It’s a colossus that’s specialized on swallowing every studio that they could need. And it’s nice for you if you don’t care about EA. But it’s like someone who don’t wanna go to mcDonalds because he minds eating quality food. It’s nice, of course, yet it doesn’t mean that EA is needless because you are not a representative of the mainstream masses. And if you’re buying a PS4 anyway and don’t need any third party stuff on the WiiU, then you’re actually right about that, it’s what I intend to do. But still it won’t help the WiiU as it just isn’t like the Wii. with the Wii, Nintendo said themselves, that their plan is, that people should buy the Wii next to a PS3 or XBox360. With the WiiU, the pricing tag is set higher and the games aren’t focused only on casuals anymore, it’s targeted to be the main gaming console and as you are showing it, they are failing with that. Nintendo kinda tries to get people to not only stick on buying 1st party games but also stuff from third party-developers to create a bigger ecosystem where more and more third parties get motivated to develop for the WiiU. but it just doesn’t work out (yet). Of course, maybe after the E3 there’s some light at the end of the tunnel, but goddammit? that’s a damn log tunnel, don’t you think? even with the Gamecube, there were at this point of it’s lifecycle enough system sellers at least on the horizon, to keep at least me excited. With the WiiU, the only thing I am currently really excited about is, that there’s Super Metroid coming out today for 30c (hell yeah!!! ;-) ) but I’m not sure if a release of a 20 yr old game should really be something that special. In the end, I got my opinion and you got yours and when I look back at all the paragraphs I kept writing here trying to make people understand what I want them to understand, I think it’s easier if we just let time tell the rest of the story as we are less than a month away from the most important E3 for Nintendo in decades.

      • Fvaco

        I regretted a lot of missing Uncharted 3 and don’t want to miss The Last Of Us too :D

        • Christian Schoff

          I haven’t played any Uncharted games. I use my PS3 for Sonic Adventure 2, Infamous 2, Bioshock 2, Shadow Hearts 2, Kingdom Hearts 2, and ATV Offroad Fury 2…….hmm, that’s a lot of 2s.lol

        • Quicksilver88

          I buy all consoles and love anything that is a good game let me tell you Uncharted series is awesome……Second one is the best IMO but all 3 are great single payer action adventure games. Last of us will likely rock as well. Sony has an excellent stable of first party IPs and even though I have owned xbox and x360 I fail to see what Microsoft has as exclusive that really compares to what Nintendo and Sony can provide.

    • sdmac200600

      Sony’s platforms aren’t bad though. PS1 2 and 3 are really great systems. Not as great as Nintendo’s but they are up there.

      • Fvaco

        Actually, the only thing I envy is the catalog…I missed so many experiences and nice stories with my Wii…

        PS1 and PS2 were amazing. PS3 not even half as good as the PS1 and PS2.

      • briwas101

        Ps3 easily beats any nintendo system ever.
        Nintendo systems = no games to play

        • sdmac200600

          Uh no. Wii U=no games to play AT THIS MOMENT. Sony does not have ANY iconic characters that anyone, and I mean ANYONE, can just look at and know the name of. EVERYBODY knows Mario. A handful of people knows Sackboy. DAMN NEAR EVERYONE knows Link. A handful of people knows Nathan Drake. I think you started gaming this/last gen because you clearly haven’t grown up with a NES and SNES to say that Sony platforms are better than ALL Nintendo platforms. As i said, Sony is UP THERE, but not better than Nintendo. Your argument could have been somewhat better if Sony continued to make Crash.

    • briwas101

      Why is that sad?
      Sony gives you everything you could want from nintendo AND A WHOLE LOT MORE.
      Only idiots and loser virgins stick with their little marios and zeldas and are afraid to play real games for adults.
      Just grow up and get a real system.

    This seems quiet fishy but whatever i’m over it gonna play what comes too wiiU i love the console

    • D Moness

      Indeed. I smell some BS here. EA released 5 games on the first engine, 5 on the second engine and now they suddenly have 15 games being made with that FB 3 engine. Interesting since only 7 games are know, of those 7 3 are from the new star wars licence they got. So that would mean EA has 8 unannounced games they are working on. Yeah right

  • Zizo47

    You forgot to mention the new Zelda game. Pretty much the only reason I game in the first place :P

        really guy? i had no idea that Zelda was just one game! amazing. nor “rpg game.” youre too much dude. with that said im going to buy Zelda, and RPG game right now. shit with Zelda being one game now i can at least get 200+hours playing through it. and RPG game? holy shit man! i have a lot of work to do! so tell me, these games worth $60 each? for 1000…+ hours of gameplay??? youre so smart man, tell me how you do it?

  • bizzy gie

    Looks like EA has gotten under your skin. You typed “prick” instead of “pick”.

          wtf? why are you here repeating your self? r u dumb? seriously GTFO! everybody here gets it,and can read, we all know ea wont be supporting wii-u. we dont need you commenting again and again, with the same all crap. sheesh what is it with people like u? god dam troll!

          • John Raybell

            jeeeeze whats your deal, fact is almost everyone in this room acted like this was a surprise and acted like certain games would still come from EA, I posted to a few people the facts,that is trolling? how about you go to the corner and f#$% your self :)

            Why did you even respond A$$face? I mean really WTF. Maybe if everyone in here would stop pretending that EA games frostbite or not are still coming then maybe i wouldn’t have to repeat my self, sorry but this is all old news as of April 6th so yeah fu$% off please :)

            You might as well go post that same msg to everyone in this room because most are saying the same $hit over and over, this is like the wiiu overclock story.

            If anybody is a troll its you for sending your pointless A$$hole reply. What is it with fu$%s like you anyways? someone take a $hit in your coffee this morning?

            Im also a fan of nintendo, they have great games, but no body took a shit in my coffee, nor do i wanna pretend im peter pan lol.
            I own both both a wii u and pc, and if your referring to zelda as peter pan, yeah he may be funny looking, but its no where close to playing peter pan ;P. also a true gamer just plays “games” mature or for everyone, unless say your older then 15 playing barbie land or nintendo land for that matter hahaha then yeah go find some different games to play, leave those for the little sisters lol. but true nintendo titles aren’t like this, you can be 3 or 300 and still enjoy it even know at age 300 you’d be dead as fuck but you get the point

    • John Raybell

      why, EA stated that “all” wii u production has stopped, that means “NO EA GAMES ON WII” not just some but all, so EA confirmed that starwars and any other EA title wont be on WII U pretty easy to understand, none means “NONE”

  • DragonSilths

    I think EA chose to use the Frostbite 3 Engine on purpose. Just so the games could not be put on the Wii U.

    • John Raybell

      that doesn’t make any sense, because fact is Frostbite 3 runs just fine on xbox360,ps3 and wii u :), the engine had nothing to do with this choice of not putting EA games out on WiiU. if that was the case EA would put other games out on the wiiu that didn’t use the engine, but they aren’t they wont make a single game for wii u now. engine unrelated!

    • Gearchin

      that’s a big fat lie on EA part, it can run on WII u, they are just being asshats and slanderous dogs atm toward Nintendo.

  • Metal_Man_v2

    Need For Speed – Generic racing game = don’t care. I prefer Mario Kart or Sega Allstars

    Battlefield 4 – A quality shooter, but not a pick up and play game. I don’t imagine any veterans of the franchise picking up a Wii U to play BF4, and veterans is really all this shooter appeals to.

    Mass Effect – many people were disappointed in the third, and didn’t like the direction the franchise was going. Not a big deal.

    Next Dragon Age game? – The definition of a subpar and generic RPG. RPGs are my favorite genre of games, and I can’t stand this series. Is there even going to be a next Dragon Age? The last one, DA2 was slammed by critics and players, and DLC support for it dropped very quickly. I could have sworn EA already killed off Dragon Age, but I guess I could be wrong.

    Long story short, I don’t really care. I know it stinks that Nintendo can’t get 3rd party support as good as they wanted, and that games skipping a console does give the console a negative look, but I REALLY just don’t care. Would never buy any of these games.

    • Zygrith

      Mass effect is the best ea can offer and it is made by one of the best developers right now on the industry: Bioware. The NFS franchise is rising with Criterion developing great games like Hot Pursuit and Most Wanted. These games are very important on a console, maybe you don’t care but many hardcore games will care about this, it’s not about you, but about the millions of fans of this games that will not buy the wii u.

      • Edward Dudley

        I think most people will look past Nintendo for not getting EA games only because of Mario, Zelda, Metroid, Pikmin, and Kirby. To a lesser extent but not by much Starfox, Monster Hunter, and Wii Fit

      • Metal_Man_v2

        Well, like I said, I know that not having these games negatively impacts the Wii U, as does any company publicly choosing to not support Nintendo. Everything about the games is my personal opinion. I wouldn’t rank Bioware anywhere near one of the best developers right now, as I don’t like their games, also an opinion.

      • greengecko007

        NFS is an old series that has stayed pretty stagnant. It’s not that popular, nor was it ever, and it certainly isn’t on the rise. Hot pursuit sold a measly 2.5 million copies globally, including all platforms and even ios. If you want a comparison, Zelda Skyward Sword sold over 3.5 million, and it was just on the Wii.

        Bioware is definitely not one of the best developers in the industry right now. The first two Mass Effects had a decent success, but many people were unhappy with the 3rd. Dragon Age has a very niche audience, and again, the last game wasn’t received all that well. In case you haven’t noticed, Bioware has a history of making a decent game, then releasing a sequel that disappoints fans.

        These games are NOT very important on a console. It may be disappointing to some that they aren’t coming to the wii u, but the games that people actually DO buy consoles for, like EXCLUSIVES are coming to the Wii U.

      • Michael Jurado

        there are more nintendo fans than there are EA fans so by using your very own logic EA is screwing them selves by not bringing their games to nintendo (not that I want any of their games or w/e)

        • Zygrith

          Both are losing

    • Graeme Lynch

      Are you on the crack pipe? Calling Dragon Age a subpar RPG conveys a massive amount of ignorance on your part. Nintendo not getting any EA published games is dreadful for the WiiU as EA is one of the biggest publishers in the industry. To say you don’t care about that is hella stupid and only allows Nintendo to coast by on its own IPs. Yes we all know how great Nintendo games are but for me personally, the lack of third party support, means I’ll be playing my WiiU much less in favour for PC. Which is the case now. I just can’t understand how people on here seem to think its perfectly fine for Nintendo to be unsupported by many big developers on the basis of 3-5 franchises. That number of exclusives hardly makes the WiiU a console to be played consistently. Especially when these games are so spaced apart.
      Sigh.

      • Metal_Man_v2

        I love RPGs, but Dragon Age is awful. The story is flawed, because despite trying to be non linear, enemies are set in the map, programmed at specific levels, and most importantly, don’t respawn. This means that in order to grind, you have to do pretty much every boring and generic fetch quest the game has to offer, or you will be underleveled. And what happens in an RPG when you are underleveled? You fail. The problem with Dragon Age is that there are several locations that you cannot leave until you beat that area. So if you are underleveled and getting owned, you are basically screwed and have to start all over.

        Battle mechanics were also very boring. There is no dodging, just standing infront of enemies, attacking, watching your character swing, miss, swing, 10 damage. It’s boring.

        Dragon Age is not a big franchise, it only has 2 games. I’m pretty sure EA killed off Dragon Age already though. The first came out in 2009, then the second came out in 2010 (EA milking a franchise). After the not so big success of Dragon Age 2, DLC support quickly stopped. Now, here we are in 2013, and no word of an actual Dragon Age game.

        • Guest

          Okay by your response you obviously don’t know what utter rubbish you’re chatting. Dragon Age Origins sold 3.2 million. Dragon Age 2 sold over 2 million. It was confirmed many months ago that Dragon Age 3 is being developed for next gen consoles using the FB3 engine.

          You can have your opinion on the battle mechanics as that is exactly what it is. An opinion.

          I personally enjoyed old fashioned D&D game mechanics as do millions of others evidently. Indeed if you get stuck in a certain area because you are too low a level sucks but the game does offer plenty of hints as to which path is recommended to take. Wither or not you take it is player choice.

          The story and emphasis on building relationships are unparralleled and have a substance that many RPG’s fail to establish.

          Perhaps next time before responding to me you come back with a knowledge and understanding that does not make you look like a fool.

          Obviously by your response you have no clue what you’re talking about. DA:O sold 3.2 million worldwide. DA 2 sold over 1 million its first week and over 2 million total. Bioware announced many months ago that DA3 was underdevelopment for next-gen consoles using the FB3 engine.
          So how about you don’t respond to me again unless you have a knowledge and understanding on the matter so you don’t make yourself out to be a fool!

          • Metal_Man_v2

            A series that has sold only a little over 5 million copies total isn’t that big. I’m so sorry that I didn’t see the announcement about Dragon Age 3 almost 2 years ago. I guess it’s because I don’t care about the series.

            I don’t agree on your opinion of the story though at all. The first game had a generic plot that centered around your character taking part in a war and forming an army. The second game didn’t even have a definitive villain, rather it was broken into 3 subplots that were all fairly mediocre. The concept of building relationships with your team was ok, but that’s in a lot of RPGs, so again, generic.

            Not being able to progress farther in the game because you are underleveled, and not being able to go back to other areas to level up, causing you to have to start the game completely over is a major flaw in the gameplay.

            If you like the combat, that’s fine, that’s your opinion. My opinion is that it is a tried and dated combat from RPGs long ago.

            I also didn’t like the reused maps that flooded the games, including the DLC.

            Perhaps next time before responding to me, you should make sure you type everything you need to. So we don’t end up with several comments by you. And maybe you can calm it down a little bit, and not call people ignorant or fools for simply having a different opinion than you.

            I don’t understand why you are under the impression that 5 million copies sold isn’t that big of a deal.
            I have never been stuck in the game in the way you refer to.
            I would like to know what RPGs you are thinking of though when you say you love RPGs as there are only a handful I can think of which the battle mechanics depart from classic turn-based/roll-based play.
            Also calling you a fool is just because you were making comments that is unsubstantiated against the evidence. DA series is hugely successful for an RPG and the fact that a 3rd in the series is indeed being released when you were under the impression that EA had ‘killed’ Dragon Age off.

          • Metal_Man_v2

            “I don’t understand why you are under the impression that 5 million copies sold isn’t that big of a deal.”

            The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim has sold over 7 million copies, compared to Dragon Ages 1 and 2s combined 5 million.

            Pokemon Black2 and White2 has sold over 6 million, compared to the Dragon Age series.

            Fallout 3 sold over 4 million by itself. The 4 million mark is a pretty common number for big games and franchises to reach. For example, AC3 also raked in around 4 million.

            The Dragon Age series isn’t a big franchise because they 1) haven’t established very many games yet, and 2) haven’t sold enough games to be a really big name. 5 million copies total for an entire franchise is easily dwarfed by the real big names of the industry right now.

            It’s very easy to get stuck in Dragon Age, particularly in the first one. When entering the mages tower, you can’t turn back because the doors are locked behind you. When entering the fade, you are once again cut off from backtracking. The event where you go to prison also comes to mind, as well as the entire climax of the game, you are stuck in the ruined city, and cannot go to any other part of the world until you manage to beat the game. This essentially locks out any way of level grinding if you find yourself underleveled or unprepared. I suppose you could argue that this problem could be avoided by keeping backup saves, but why should the player have to constantly be worried about backing up saves (that take up memory) in fear of becoming stuck in the game.

          • Graeme Lynch

            No the point I was making was that DA is a successful franchise. Simple. Quoting numbers from games that have had core fan bases for 10+ years is pointless. I wonder if Elder Scrolls and Fallout are the RPGs you prefer to play. Regardless it doesn’t escape the fact that a majority of RPGs utilise the gameplay mechanics you hate. Also the storyline of Skyrim is the most simplistic tale that Bethesda have been using for the past 7 years.

            Also mitigated away from the point that the WiiU is not benefiting from the constant lack of 3rd party support. The 3DS is now booming thanks to a whole range of variety from not only Nintendo but many other publishers. It is just disappointing that support for the WiiU is low considering it is a great machine.

          • Metal_Man_v2

            And my point has been all along that I don’t like Dragon Age at all. While Dragon Age may have been successful in earning money, it still falls short of being a big franchise that people throw uproars over because it’s not coming to the Wii U.

            “Quoting numbers from games that have had core fan bases for 10+ years is pointless.”

            Uh, no, it’s not. It’s exactly the point. Dragon Age doesn’t have the established fan base that these games have. It doesn’t compare to these big franchises, because it’s not on that level yet.

            “Also mitigated away from the point that the WiiU is not benefiting from the constant lack of 3rd party support.”

            While 3rd party support isn’t as good as it could be for the Wii U, it is still there. EA may not support Nintendo, but other big names like Capcom, Ubisoft, Activision, Sega, and Square Enix do support the Wii U.

            As for the types of RPGs I prefer to play, I prefer the ones that don’t rehash maps, don’t allow you to get stuck in the story, aren’t misleadingly linear, and have a combat style that isn’t boring. Namely, I enjoy Pokemon, The Elder Scrolls, Kingdoms of Amalur ; Reckoning, Luminous Arc, Some of the Final Fantasies, and Xenoblade, to name a few.

          • Graeme Lynch

            I could continue this debate but all I will simply say is that time will tell regarding 3rd party support for the WiiU. I will just be saving money to improve my PC in the expectation that I will be disappointed by the games released on the system.

            Also just to point out that Pokemon and Final Fantasy games have essentially the same combat system as Dragon Age. Further DA:O did not rehash maps and to be frank you can get stuck in the story of most RPGs if you haven’t followed the guidelines set out for you. DA just allows you to ignore those guidelines anyway at your possible expense.

  • Nintedward

    ”New Frostbite engine doesn’t run on Wii U”

    yeah it fuckin does lol. EA is not supporting it. They aren’t porting and supporting their engine on Wiiu cus they’re a bunch of horrible cunts. The Wiiu can run any engine in gaming if the developers actually try and put the fucking things on the Wiiu.

    In other news , the Xbox Infiniphysx and PS phwoar don’t support Zelda , Mario , Smash bros , etc. *scores a hook shot 3 pointer downs a peach shnapps and leaves*

    • The Clockwork Being

      In other new news, PS and Xbox fans waiting for the next Xeno game for their systems seeing how the Xeno series were one their favorite games. Monolith Soft has shown footage of the new X. Sony and Xbox fans think the game is a multiplatform game. Sorry its a Nintendo exclusive

      • briwas101

        Xeno what?
        Ive been gaming for 26 years and have never heard of it.
        If i havent even heard of it, how can i be jealous or think its my favorite game?
        I have NEVER heard anyone mention this game, so obviously it cant be THAT popular or else i would have heard of it.
        Im fine with the HUNDREDS of awesome games i get to play on playstation, i am not jealous of the 4 or 5 good nintendo games that come out each decade.

        • The Clockwork Being

          Dude im a Sony and Nintendo fan(Nintendo fan when I started gaming than gaining the Sony fan part later) and I have to say if you say Nintendo has only got 4 to 5 good Nintendo games then shows lots of ignorance.

    • MetroidZero

      Nice said. lol

  • TheBoldman67

    I call bullshit… NFS Most Wanted runs Frostbyte2 great, and Wii U is more powerful than PS3 and 360, and they’re getting BF4. I think they’re just still butthurt about the whole “No Origin on Wii U” thing.

    • John Raybell

      NFS Most Wanted didnt use frostbyte at all. but the wiiu can run those engines just fine, better then xbox360 and ps3. most wanted used Chameleon engine.
      wii u has never used frostbyte, and wii has never used frostbyte. need for speed the run used it, but frostbyte wasnt used on the wii nor 3ds to make the game, the pc,ps3 and xbox360 ran frostbyte for the run, but the wii and 3ds used different engines all together.

      • TheBoldman67

        I’m pretty sure MW does run FB2 but whether or not it does, Wii U’s much newer and better hardware, and the others are 6 and 7 years old, I’m pretty sure Wii U could run FB3 much better than the other consoles.

        • John Raybell

          oh yeah the console will run it no problem, but hasnt yet is all. Chameleon engine was used for MW. need for speed the run used frostbite but only on the xbox ps and pc. the 3ds and wii version used something else :). WIKI dude, use it :).
          And for dick head LonDonE247 yes I fucking repeated my self, fuck you. :)

          But yeah your right the wiiu could run it better then the consoles we have now points at 360 and ps3….

  • The Clockwork Being

    I’d be funny if EA just releases these game and had been pretending to be butthurt just to surprise the Nintendo fans…(this is very unlikely though)

  • GeekDaddy

    Open Letter to Sega due to EA being the worst company ever…

    Dear Sega,
    I wanted to write to you as I see
    an opportunity for your business to grow with game potential for the
    Nintendo Wii U. As you probably already know, EA has already said that
    they would release no more games for Nintendo
    systems. I wasn’t a fan of the Madden games anyway but I have been
    hurting for a good football game for some time. I miss the days of
    NFL2k5 and previously NFL 2k1 on my now retired but beloved Dreamcast.
    Those were amazing games. As EA is refusing to do Madden
    on the Wii U, I believe this is your opportunity to jump into this
    market for the Wii U. You have always done it better than EA anyway.

    In short, I want a football game for the Wii U. I know that EA has exclusive rights to NFL names and such but I think this may be a chance to push a football game
    in some imaginative directions.

    Although it was also an EA
    game back for the Sega Genesis, one of my favorite games was Mutant
    League Football. A modern version of this game could be outstanding.
    Imagine modern graphics with trolls, skeletons,
    robots, zombies, and anything else playing football on a field in
    space/hell/whatever with mines and fire pits. There are some interesting
    possibilities here that could make for a new game unique to modern
    consoles. I’d be happy with a normal football game
    here and I would buy it, but some sort of football game like this would
    pull my interest even further. I have many ideas for a Mutant League
    Football-esk game as I have been thinking about it for many years now. I
    would be happy to share.

    I want a football game for
    the Wii U(Normal or Mutant League), Even if EA wasn’t being Evil and
    childish, I would still prefer one from you.

    Please, Make this happen!

  • Ducked

    The worst video game company doesn’t need to make games for the best video game company.

    • briwas101

      Its cute that you think that.
      Nintendo was the best video game company……23 years ago.
      Nintendo is still making 2d mario games and they claim to be “innovative”.
      Nintendo makes crappy systems and crappy games, period.

      • Almondo Joseph Chioino

        according to who? keep your negative —>opinions<– to yourself and the other ponies. every franchise uses a basis for gameplay. Gears of War, COD, Halo, Mario, Zelda, etc etc. whenever you spew more opinionated bs from your mind, to your mouth, swallowing it allowing it to go into your digestive track, to the blood stream, towards the extremities and out your fingers, onto a keyboard, and onto others comps, at least have the common courtesy to add "IMO" at the end of it.

        troll. 12 year old troll. no brain fuck head at that too :), still make 2d mario games on the side moron, they have the most powerful console ever made as of right now, and make some of the best games ever made, sooooooo your a dumb ass troll. Do you work for EA? because you suck at it.

      • Ducked

        27 years later Nintendo is still the most successful video game company on the market. Your welcome.

  • jah

    hey dumb asses ea already said they are not making any more wii u games and it’s because they got upset that nintendo said no to ea controllling all of the wii u’s online with there (gay) origin network so theres no point in talking about ea skipping games on wii u because again they already said there not making any more wii u games because they are upset that there (gay) origin network is controlling the wii u’s online

  • FlyingBoat

    yea but isnt dice in charge of making the next star wars game? i dont wana miss out on star wars battlefront 3 when its FINALLY made, just because the engine supposedly doesnt work on wii u. And i still call bullshit on that. i can see it just being an excuse for EA to not publish on WII u because theyre still annoyed nintendo didnt let them do the internet browser, or whatever it was

    • John Raybell

      just because they are using the frostbite engine on a game does not mean its DICE, and the engine doesnt mean anything, no EA tiles running any EA engines will be made for the Wiiu this includes starwars and every other EA title known to man. No EA titles means just that No freaking ea titles, meaning if its EA or says EA on the CASE it wont be a “wiiu title” got it. does everyone get it, this is the third time EA has stated IT wont be making nintendo games any more. which mean ALL EA GAMES, not just some EA games wont make it, but all wont make it, not a single EA title on the wiiu, pretty easy to understand. Just like JAH said “hey dumb asses ea already said they are not making any more wii u games ”

      NONE MEANS NONE,none does not mean starwars or other EA titles will still come, NONE MEANS NOT A SINGLE EA TITLE WILL BE MADE FOR THE WII U, NO MORE EA GAMES ON WII U. ZERO ZIP ZILCH, NO MORE. the number freaking ZERO no more games

      • FlyingBoat

        dude, calm down, you just kinda screamed the phrase ‘No ea games’ over and over.

  • John Raybell

    unreal4 and frostbite3 engines do in fact run on wiiu, even the new crisis engine does in fact there was a version of crysis 3 pretty much done for wiiu was ready to launch according to crytek it was EA that decided to pull it and not release it, fact is BF4 is coming to 360 and ps3 and the wiiu being more powerful then both of consoles mean it can for sure run on the wiiu, EA is skipping the wii u do to low sales number, lack of wii u owners, thats all. And the wiiu can run frostbite 2 with out issues, before the wii u was out EA was already playing around with it and DICE was impressed with what the wiiu could do, so what changed between then and now? The system didnt sell like EA thought it would, and EA and nintendo have been having issues, they didnt agree on something, EA got butt hurt, and now here we are today, in the end this had nothing to do with the engine not running on wii u, if it was in fact just the engine, then why would EA not make any wii u games at all? and not just the games that used that engine. the wii u can run any engine the xbox360 and ps3 can run only it can do a better job at it, and engines are very scalable thats fact, forsure frostbite, its so scalable they could make a game on the wii or the 3ds, yes it wont look that great but the engine can be scaled down to run just fine, where as on the wiiu you have more room to work with then 360 and ps3 so how could it not perform as well, EA suck? DICE devs suck, lazy, or EA are a bunch of babies and dont want to try and cant get along with nintendo. Either way the console isn’t the issue here ITS EA!!!!

  • Mc Robins

    The funny thing here is EA is pretty much saying we don’t like money. I mean what if the Wii U pulls a Wii and becomes the best selling console again. A lot of us bought the Wii u on the promise of more third party support. That’s one less sell from all of us. Not very good business if you ask me. Granted I will get BF4 for my PC but not everyone has a super powered PC to run these games and the Wii U is the solution to that missed PC sale.

    • briwas101

      1. There is LITERALLY no chance that the wii u wins. NONE. The winner is either the ps4 or xboxInfinity. Nintendo messed up this system so bad that it has lost even before its competitors have released their system. Huge loss for nintendo.
      2. EA is not saying they hate money. They have accountants who have crunched the numbers and they have determined they will make MORE MONEY by not wasting time and money on porting a game to the wii u where it will only sell like 20,000 copies.
      It isnt a game developer’s job to prop up a system. It is nintendo’s job to make people buy a system so that developers are willing to RISK money making games for it.
      Right now it is almost a guaranteed loss by making games for wii u. Thats why no one is making games for it.
      Do you like losing money? I didnt think so.
      Ea doesnt want to lose money, so they are skipping the wii u

      • Mc Robins

        Isn’t EA already losing money? While Ubisoft and Activision are making money and putting ports on Wii U? When you’re losing money you do things to make more money like hey you know getting your product to as many people as possible.

  • Edward Dudley

    I predict that EA will be 3 time champions of the worst company in America!!!

  • ThunderGod_Cid

    Well…..I don’t care much for FPS’s, Madden, the Sims, or MMO’s. The only racing games I play have the words “Mario” and “Kart” in the title. I like RPG’s, but BioWare hasn’t made good one since Mass Effect 2 & Dragon Age Origins. And EA’s more recent games are usually involved in some kind of media sh**storm. Then there are those “Golden Poo” awards that they’ve “won” for the past 2 years.

    So basically, there’s nothing I want to buy from EA.

  • Sonic

    I don’t think we want games from a company that got the GOLDEN POO……..

  • Doominatorx6

    Suuuuuure, it’s the engine. Then what’s with the claim that Crysis 3 was running perfectly on WiiU but EA shut it down?

    This is just EA being a baby about Nintendo not allowing their Origin bullshit on the system.

    More bad news -.-

    And Mass Effect is epic.

    • John Raybell

      kinda, but at the same time not really, ill by EA games on my PC if i want any :), ill save my wiiu for well wiiu titles, not third party crap thats on every other console and pc, and crappy ports of third party titles suck anyways. sooooo not really a big loss :)

            That is actually quite a good idea.

          • John Raybell

            Thats what I have been doing, bailed on my xbox for my PC up front cost may be alittle pricey but its far far cheaper gaming in the end, with awesome graphics and with out horrible console lag, its like having a console more powerful then a ps4 by far. its the way to go, sooooooo glad I made the choice. PC and wiiu cover me for pretty much all the worth a fuck games coming out, tired of the same crap on the xbox i feel like I have been playing the same games over and over for 8+ years now. Going back to nintendo has been a nice change, yes a little short on games as of yet, but thats soon to change :), and I dont miss out on the third party games that xbox and ps have because most and even more games come out on pc, its always a nice feeling when your friends come over and watch you play the games they play on there xbox and ps only maxed out on your pc running at full solid 60fps a sec, almost makes me feel bad, have ruined so many games for my friends because they watch me play on my pc, then go back to there xbox and ps, after you see what these games really look like, the console versions just feel like total ripoffs, I spend same price sometimes cheaper then the people who get those games on the consoles, yet mine dont lag and look so much better, which to me should mean console games should be cheaper, seeing how they are less then what we get for more then we pay.never understood that. after throwing away thousands of dollars on xbox games and crap and now owning my PC I wish i put that money into my PC and games for my PC I would have gotten more games more often, and when your broke being able to get more games more often is awesome, instead of owning a console and hardly being able to afford to buy the new games coming out. I have saved hundreds of dollars gaming on my pc from steam sales alone :).
            The wiiu on the other hand is a must have because nintendo games rock, best of both worlds :)

    • Destructonator101

    It doesn’t make sense that Frosbite 2 would run poorly on the WiiU. That has to be a load of bullsh*t. If the WiiU is more powerful then PS3 and 360, which has been proven already, then why would Frostbite 2 run poorly on it? I love my WiiU and I would like to play the next Elder Scrolls or Fallout on it, granted I know these are not EA titles, but lately I cannot help but think it will never happen.

    Like Rich from ReviewTechUSA said on YouTube EA are nothing but liars. If Frostbite can run on PS3 and 360 and they have older technology it can run on Wii U. Man for a guy to straight up lie about why they’re not making games for Wii U is bull crap. I hope EA goes down in flames and makes room for better companies like Ubisoft to grow. This is horse crap and everybody knows it man. I’m dumbfounded that they would even come up with such a lie just because they’re pissed of at Nintendo.

    You can’t blame EA though,,, It’s Nintendo’s fault for releasing yet another underpowered hardware. IF FB2 can’t run on Wii U well, then WTF? How do you expect a new game engine to run on Wii U, when it’s much older predecessor won’t run on it smoothly? How badly underpowered to be honest is the Wii U when it can’t run Frost Bite 2? Which is already years old…Sigh.

    • fireheartis1

      Dude they are straight up freaking lying and for you do believe them is just stupid. The Wii U is more powerful than the PS3 and 360 and if FB3 can run on those nearly a decade old consoles, it can run on the freaking Wii U. Sorry that you fell for their lies bro, but the truth is Wii U is more powerful than PS3 and 360, and therefore it can run FB2 and 3. EA is pissed off at Nintendo for telling them to stick it with the Origin online service and we all know it.

      Frostbite 2 and 3 could have run just fine on Wii-U if they would have taken the time to work with the hardware and properly optimize their engine. Ubi has their engine running fine on Wii-U and are bringing AC4, WachDogs, Splinter Cell, and Rayman….team doing sniper elite 2 was asked is Wii-U more powerful than ps360 and they said…In a word yes. Dues Ex team says Wii-U will have best looking console version….NFS MW looks better on Wii-U. As others have stated this is about EA and their pissing match with Nintendo and doesn’t have a damned thing to do with tech!

    • briwas101

      No company besides EA can make NFL games because they have the EXCLUSIVE LICENSE.

      If 2k sports is working on a football game then it will NOT be NFL licensed.

      Instead of the New England Patriots with QB Tom Brady, you would have the New England Musketmen with QB John Davey.

      No NFL teams would be in the game, and no nfl players would be either.

      It would be fake teams in fake stadiums with fake players.

      • http://www.clairvius.com/ Clairvius

        Everything has a price tag i like the NFL stuff myself being a football fan but i would mind a good non License game either if they do it right kinda like Blitz tried a few years back it was ok not great but can be pulled off i imagine “Exclusive License” is nothing more than a bid war if 2K Sports wanted to make a NFL game and had the right backing i would think they could get that done especially if Nintendo would chip in some of them gold coins

  • enigmaxtreme

    So let me get this straight

    Battlefield 3 on the 360 without the HDD install looks like a PS2 game (ie total ass) Yet “tests” state the engine runs poorly on the Wii U and that’s reason enough to say no. Money is on that the tests were poorly optimised and were obviously stopped when EA threw a hissy fit.

    EA wanted Origin to run the Nintendo Network which ignoring how terrible that would have been for Nintendo and other third parties completely undermined Nintendo’s presence in the industry. The simple fact is Nintendo has sold almost 600 Million units of Hardware in its almost 30 years in the console industry has the largest and most varied pool of assets ever and has more money then EA ever has. yet peter Moore thought he could just bully Nintendo….

    So you know what, if owning a Wii U means I have to miss out on the same watered down games like Madden, Dragon Age and Mass Effect then so be it

    • briwas101

      LOL @ you.
      You say ps2 games look like total ass?
      Ps2 games LOOKED BETTER THAN WII GAMES!!!!!!
      The wii wasn’t even able to beat the ps2.

      • Adrian

        Hah, I actually agree with this. I had my PS2 when the Wii came out. I looked at Wii Games and was like…uhhh, no thanks! Loved that PS2! I love my Wii U now though :)

        • John Raybell

          You agree with a false statement, wow way to go, your awesome.

          • Adrian

            You go out of your way to (attempt to) put people down and boost your ego with your pathetic sarcasm. Wow, way to go. You are awesome! :)

          • John Raybell

            EGO? dude you agreed with a false statement, thats all i was saying. i didnt put you down, and again wow you are awesome hahaha

          • Adrian

            Keep on strokin’ that ego John ;). I stated my opinion on how games look, which is entirely subjective. Your declaration that it was a false statement, is a false statement.

          • John Raybell

            but wii games look better then ps2 games, thats fact, so saying you agreeing with someone that states that ps2 games looked better then wii games is agreeing with a false statement. gamecube looked better then ps2 games, and wii was slightly more powerful then the gamecube, slightly. every first party title on wii looks better then every single game on ps2. ps3 was the first sony console that actually was more powerful then a nintendo console, they were behind everyone until ps3 was released. better graphics is better graphics more polygons and less pixels, better lighting and better anti aliasing isnt subjective, thats like saying you cant say the snes doesnt look better then the xbox360, when its fact that 360 games graphically smoke snes games. this is fact, i dont know where and how you pulled subjective out of your ass like that, and your ego trip crap, sorry im a facts guy and not an OPINION kinda guy, you can have all the stupid ass wrong opinions you want but that doesn’t mean shit, in the end you have shit wrong opinions when held next to facts.

          • Adrian

            hahaha you are a hilarious boy. I rarely see anybody so full of themselves.

          • John Raybell

            full of my self? because your a dip shit like so many others. not full of my self, just not a no brain fucktard like yourself :). now leave me alone, go be a piece of crap with someone else, fucking carcass flies i swear. Just cant get them away some times.

          • Adrian

            Hahaha, not surprised at all by how you responded. I hope I’m not bothering you. You are actually quite amusing. Nothing more logical than telling others they aren’t allowed to have an opinion or a preference. Shoot I guess all those people who prefer the classic Disney movies to the stuff released today are completely wrong too. Damn us people for thinking so falsely :(. Hahahaha

          • John Raybell

            Jesus cant get rid of people like you like you cant get rid of AIDS.

          • Adrian

            Ahh, haha ok. That makes more sense now.

      • enigmaxtreme

        The PS2 does look like ass especially compared to other systems of the time, both the Gamecube and Xbox specs were double or even triple that of the PS2′s tech, hence why the Xbox got lots of exclusives in the later years of the generation.

        Also where in my comment did I say Wii games looked better then PS2 unless the developer was Nintendo or was developed by people who gave a rats ass about the console most of the stuff on the Wii did look pretty eh

      • John Raybell

        the wii was better then the ps2 and games looked better then the ps2. You like those paint chips dont you :)

  • david daniel wharton camacho

    i would choose the nfs game, and if they dont release it, boo freekin hoo, i wont buy it not even on pc screw EA if they think they can get away with this shi, i mean wii had no EA support whatsoever! and it was best console trhough the years, now wii u will do even better with ubisoft and WB on its back! EA SUCKS DICK

    • briwas101

      LOL @ you if you think the wii was the best console through the years.
      After all these years there are only about 5 wii games worth playing.
      I have had a ps3 for 2 years and i have played over 100 awesome games on it.
      If you think the wii was the best then you are probably a virgin

      • david daniel wharton camacho

        “BEST SOLD” for its familly and its gameplay material, not just us gamers but for casual gamers even familly, my dad wont play actual games with me, he will only play stuff like wii sports and that “familly stuff”

      • Arthur Jarret

        Muramasa, Xenoblade, Mario Galaxy x2, Super smash bros. Brawl, Red steel 2, Capcom vs. Tatsunoku

        6 games! I didn’t even think about it – what did I win?

  • mister turtlehead

    nintendo should just put their best guys on making their own NFL game to make madden obsolete

    • briwas101

      EA has the exclusive license so NO ONE but EA can make an NFL game.
      The only thing Nintendo could do is make a game with the New York Thundercats and the LA Armada and other fake names like that.
      They cant use team names, nor can they use player’s names.
      So the QB of the New England MusketMen would be John Davey (Tom Brady)

      • D.M.T

        They can make a football game if they want, now shut up. I see you replying to everyone talking trash about Wii U like the typical troll.

        • briwas101

          They can make a FOOTBALL game, but not an NFL game you moron, just like i said.
          Why don’t you go play with your dolls and little action figures and little kids game system.

          • D.M.T

            They can make Football game but not NFL? No shit Sherlock. That’s what I said.

            That’s funny because between me and you, you’re the only kid here. Grown man don’t troll like you.

          • briwas101

            OMG. You continue to show how stupid you are.

            Look at my ORIGINAL post. The ORIGINAL ONE.

            In it, i say that they can make a stupid unlicensed game with fake teams and fake players.

            You REPLIED to my statement with “They can make a football game if they want, now shut up”.
            I ALREADY SAID THEY COULD. That is what i JUST SAID. I JUST GOT DONE SAYING THEY COULD MAKE AN UNLICENSED GAME.
            So your reply indicated that you are unable to read.
            Its like me saying: “George Washington was the 1st president of the US.”
            and then you saying: “No, George Washington was the first president.”
            Uhhh…no duh, I JUST SAID that George Washington was the first president.
            You actually AGREED with what i said and yet you made a comment indicating disagreement.
            Next time someone says something true (like i did you BRAINDEAD IDIOT) just nod your head and go on your merry way.

      • mister turtlehead

        ugh. that stinks. guarantee they could make a better game

  • Enigma

    You people can say that you don’t care all you want, but the fact is that this is a huge loss for Nintendo.

    Those are all great AAA quality games, and even some blockbusters. Period.

    Now stop being fanboys.

    Oh wait, you can’t.

    • Wayne Beck

      Sorry man, but all of those games are Dead IPs and yearly shovelware. Half of them are sports titles.

      • Enigma

        Then explain their constant critical success and huge monetary profits.

        Stop lying to yourself.

        • Wayne Beck

          EA is losing money like Crazy. Almost everything has been panned as a rehash or a complete failure. The only one that did well recently was ME3 and people hated it so much, they had to make a new Ending.

    • http://www.facebook.com/keronc Keron Cecil Coward

      I will care about EA when they give an explanation why they sold FIFA 12 on Wii U with a FIFA 13 logo.

      • briwas101

        They did the same thing with Madden 13.

        Its because the wii u is difficult to program for AND it is less powerful than the ps3 in SOME ways.

        The wii u was poorly designed by nintendo to be a weak system that only works well when a game is designed specifically for the system.

        They sold the 2012 version and called it 2013 because it was the easiest thing to do with a crappy system.

        If you had just bought it for a REAL system like a NORMAL PERSON you wouldn’t be having this problem.

        But no, you chose to buy a horrible system and then a horrible version of a game for it.

        • Michael Jurado

          a real system oh HA sir you make my ribs hurt so much my computer runs circles around your “real systems” you obviously don’t know a thing about gaming hence why you praise microsoft and sony because you are too stupid to build your own computer and you settle for what they give you (a half ass computer) basically nintendo is the only company who is doing gaming right and you are just hating because they are successful without making a crappy computer… seriously gut a ps3 or 360 you’ll find all the stuff from a kick ass computer 15 years ago … but they are only 7 year old consoles. my next point is if nintendo sucks so much? why does the competition imminently copy them when they release something. 2011 they show us the wii u and both microsoft and sony make a controller of some sort with a screen on it both of which fail in comparison to the wii u. so please don’t talk shit if you don’t know what you are talking about

        • John Raybell

          the wiiu is more powerful then ps360, so wouldn’t that make the xbox and ps even worse consoles? where is your logic? and every console only works well when a game is designed specifically for the system, have you ever played a port???? there are good ports and bad ports, good and bad multiplatform, some games are run better on xbox some run better on ps, so why would this be hmmmmmmmmmmmmm let think oh I know because games sometimes aren’t designed specifically for the system. another good example you can have a $1600 pc and get a multi platform release game and if its not specifically designedoptimized for the pc its not going to be that great nor work better then say if it was made ground up on xbox or ps3 and ported to pc and vice verse.

        • http://www.facebook.com/keronc Keron Cecil Coward

          How does that explain why they ported a old game instead of the current one? If it was hard to port 2013 wouldn’t it also be hard to port 2012? There is no logical explanation for nonsense like that. EA is a crappy company…..end of conversation.

  • david daniel wharton camacho

    LOL i love how every body is fighting

  • Lev M

    fuck EA

    • briwas101

      fuck nintendo for making a horrible system with no support from developers.
      At least Sony and MS know what they are doing in the console business.
      Nintendo is a dinosaur on its way to extinction.

      • Lev M

        but yet they won last Gen & the Wii is on pace to being the 2nd best selling system of all time mixed with the fact that DS are selling like crazy please get your facts straight

  • wiiu4life

    Hey here is an idea. Lets support developers by opening our wallets. We should be reading articles on the 15 confirmed titles coming out and take a poll on which one will get our support.

  • Wayne Beck

    This really is no big loss. EA has made only one or two half decent games in the past decade. When they do make a good game, they always ruin the IP with an exceptionally bad Sequel. This is especially true of BioWare. EA just has a way of neutering ever studio they Acquire. Their sport titles are the only reason the company is still standing. Even those have fail to inovate in anyway for a decade. EA is just lucky they get exclusive rights to Football and Soccer. Most of those fans only play those games. I’m not even worried about Star Wars because Disney probablly has a, “you lose rights if your games fail”, clause and we all know the games will fail. EA is probablly the only company that can make a Star Wars product Star Wars fans won’t buy.

  • wetback

    BECAUSE OF GAME ENGINE if you believe that ,you need to seek medical attention right away EA TALKING HARDLY EVER BEEN CORE ZORK marketing to try get ps4 selling

    down right pathetic lol at talentless EA

  • Robknoxious1

    None of the above. If I ever get an EA game for my 360 it will be used, period.

    This “Wii U can’t. Run FB3″ stuff is bull. You mean to tell me that DICE – a company that makes PC games and is used to making their games scalable for non-state-of-art machines can’t get a game to run on Wii U but will bring it to PS360?? I ain’t buying it.

    I’ve worked for company’s that had supplier feuds. They did stupid stuff like this too. It hurts Wii U but it hurts EA too.

    • briwas101

      EA doesnt seem to have a problem with it.
      It isnt hurting them, only nintendo.
      Why would EA do nintendo a favor and get nothing in return?
      How often does Nintendo do favors for other companies????
      Nintendo acted like it was the boss back when it was on top, and now it gets to see what it feels like being on the BOTTOM.
      There is a saying in the business world: “Be careful who you step on on your way up, because you will be seeing them again on your way down.”

      It’s called Karma, and Nintendo has A LOT of bad karma built up.

      • Robknoxious1

        Favor? Who’s asking them to do Nintendo a favor? If they don’t think they can make money making Wii U versions of games then fine, don’t do it. They could be wrong – Ubisoft said it would only cost them about 1mil to port a game already on its way to PS360 to Wii U. IF Wii U can’t handle the FB3 engine (I highly doubt this since even UE4 can supposedly be scaled to work on Wii U) then okay – no EA games. However many of these comments about Wii U have such an degrading tone to them that it seems unprofessional at best.

        I and I’m sure others think there’s more to it. EA supposedly wanted to run Nintendo’s online and Nintendo didn’t go for it. This broke down their “unprecedented partnership” (words EA used regarding Wii U in 2011′s E3).

        Speaking of Karma, you think EA has stored up good Karma? How about EA basically trying to force Sega to only allow EA sports games on Dreamcast, even to the exclusion of 2K games that Sega OWNED. When Sega refused EA said they wouldn’t support Dreamcast with EA games and famously told people that Dreamcast couldn’t survive without them. Were they right? Sure Dreamcast “Dreamcasted” Sega but really Sega was already its own worst enemy for everything after Genesis.

        As far as being on the bottom Nintendo is still far, far ahead of other console companies when it comes to making money, the most important thing for any business. Heck even Game Cube made them money. PS3 has now sold over 3x the amount as GCN did but Sony hemorrhaged money on it. How much? More than they made on PS1 & PS2 combined.

        Lastly I’ll say this – why, WHY – do people hang out at sites that discuss things they do not like or in fact hate? I used to frequent a forum for an FPS game I loved enough to put 700+ hours in. There were several regular posters that hated the game and just kept coming back in to reiterate how horrible they thought it was. Why? This makes no sense to me. I guess some people get off on annoying others since they don’t have to do it F2F but can remain safely anonymous.

  • Aiddon

    It’s the really bad lying that gets me. Trying to pussy-foot around by claiming that the Frostbite Engine doesn’t work on the Wii U is just pathetic. I think the BIGGEST sign of EA not being honest is that there are also no EA games planned for the 3DS. Y’know, the system with the LARGEST userbase? Passing up the Wii U is one thing, but you’d have to be an IDIOT not to do something on the 3DS. Starting to wonder if that Origin rumor is legit.

    • http://www.facebook.com/keronc Keron Cecil Coward

      The Origin rumor is legit. EA is a very crappy company and they deserve to be out of business. Im still disgusted that i bought FIFA 13 on Wii U to only realised its FIFA 12 with a FIFA 13 logo. They are never getting my money again until they restructure that company and fess up to the nonsense they do.

      • briwas101

        Your mistake wasnt buying Fifa 13, your mistake was choosing the wii u version.
        The only game that looks better on the wii u is Need for Speed.
        Every other game looks better on PS3/X360.
        Not only do they look better, but the ps3/x360 games are better overall.
        The Madden 13 game for wii u DOES NOT have the new physics engine, it is the 2012 version with player updates.
        Again, your problem is not with EA or the game that you bought, YOUR PROBLEM is that you chose THE WORST SYSTEM TO BUY A GAME FOR.
        Its bad enough that you made your mistake, but don’t make a 2nd mistake by not learning your lesson from the 1st mistake.

        • http://www.facebook.com/keronc Keron Cecil Coward

          Obviously youre a tard. Those game look the same but at close observation Wii U has better lighting from digital foundry comparisons. Only performance issues Wii U had was frame rate hiccups here and there and its not even noticable or game breaking. Also after the recent Wii U update games load faster and frame rates are better so what youre claiming here holds no weight.

          • briwas101

            “Obviously youre a tard” says the grown-ass black man who still dreams of playing with little pikmin and princess peach….

  • JV

    If you guys think EA sucks then what do you think about the Battlefield Series?

    • Petri

      Used to love them, especially Bad Company 2.
      But BF 3 was so big of a disappointment, that love for the series disappeared.
      And, I lost all respect for Dice, theyre willing to blame their incompetence over EA’s business decisions.

  • Ryan House

    Well the only Major EA franchise I buy is “PGA TOUR” My dad Plays the Golf we have Tiger Woods 2006 to 2014 for Xbox 360. I doubt my Dad will Buy the Next Xbox For Golf. I bought “Kingdoms of Amalur: Reckoning” but put more time into the Demo then the actual Full Game.

    I hate FPS games

    • boynhisblobs

      I wouldn’t say I hate FPS games, its just not my go to game. That’s why I bought a Wii U. Every once and awhile ZombiU gets a play.

      • D.M.T

        ZombiU is not a FPS game, it’s Survivor Horror

        • boynhisblobs

          That would be a sub genre. Its first person and you shoot.

  • BuckStud

    Looks like I’ll be skipping 15 EA games.

  • only god can judge me

    Knowone can give the wii u the spark it need but only nintendo its pretty simple ninendo gamers buy their systems to play their first party games plain and simple and when they arrived they will be a smash hit and the momentum of sales will pick up instantly as a wii u owner I enjoy every minute of my wii.u especially playing online all it needs is more games meaning the first party and everything will fall into place not losing hope for my wii uits only the beginning

    • briwas101

      Congrats, you bought a car without an engine.
      A game system with no games = paperweight.

      • only god can judge me

        The games will come with time just like any other system launch dates one thing that is guaranteed is when nintendo first party franchises do arrive they are the best quality game experiences that you can’t find on any other system elsewhere on this planet cased closed

        • briwas101

          I had a wii, and it sat around collecting dust because all the wii games sucked.
          Nintendo games are rarely bad, but nintendo stopped making the best games back in the early NINETIES.
          Nintendo stopped mattering 20 years ago.
          Case closed.

          • only god can judge me

            Nintendo seemed 2 matter to millions of gamers that bought the wii including yourself when it was soldout everywhere kicking microsoft and sony as all over the place cased closed.

          • only god can judge me

            Nintendo matter to millions across the world when everyone bought the wii including yourself when it was sold out in every store and kicked sony and xbox ass all across the globe whichs goes back to what I said its not about the graphics or power the heart lies in the quality of the games and how well they deliver the experience in which nobody does it better than nintendo when they release their heavy hitters.

  • Will Carpenter

    A mirrors edge sequel if they ever made one.

  • Jon

    LOL, who cares about a battle field 3 remake and like 95% of EA’s game releases anyway. No one who plays Nintendo games really cares about EA and if they do, it is probably on for PC

    • briwas101

      So basically what you are saying is that only Nintendo 1st party games should be made?
      Well, congrats, because it looks like you are getting your wish.
      No one wants to make games for the wii u.
      Not even NINTENDO wants to make games for the wii u, otherwise they would have actually RELEASED a game or two…..

      • Jon

        but… there is 3rd party games being made…. and first party games.lol

  • Dodge Pribyl

    EA, It’s in the LAME.

  • boynhisblobs

    I don’t get it really. They don’t want 3 million plus people buying their games? I mean, I know they said it tested poorly and everything, but I read from another interview that they didn’t really try too hard either. I think it’s just an excuse and the Origins thing is the real issue.

    • briwas101

      3million if EVERY owner buys a copy. That wont happen.
      Look, a bunch of people who are smarter than you crunched a bunch of numbers and determined that they would make LESS MONEY if they made games for the wii u.
      Its not your company, so you have no right to complain about them not wanting to lose money.
      If it was your company you wouldnt make games for the wii u either because YOUR bean counters would tell you that you would make LESS MONEY if you made games for wii u.
      Don’t hate MATH just because MATH shows that the wii u is a waste

      • phaedruss

        Well there will certainly be more wii u owners by the time these games come out and more wii u owners than ps4 and xboxnext owners by the time these games come out.

    • heroponluigi

      Hahaha ” if you could prick one EA game for release on the Wii U, which game would you pick? ” , wiiU daily thinks they are pricks and I agree indeed, yes.

  • WideAwake

    What I’m sad were missing: Star Wars game, Dragon Age, and I prob would have picked up either NHL or Fifa.

    Other than Star Wars, EA doesn’t have a diverse catalogue of games that Wii U owners will be missing out on. They probably will come up with a few new games, but for the next year or so, this isn’t the worst thing to happen.

    • Arthur Jarret

      Rogue Squadron 2 is still one of the best games I’ve ever played. So sad we won’t ever receive a fourth entry in the series.

  • husky818yahoocom

    One does not simply buy a nintendo console to play 3rd party games anyway

    Sega Sport will replace EA for the Wii U

  • Petri

    Honestly, EA has managed to shit all over every franchise they got.

    Dead Space, great game, until the sequels (played Dead Space 3 for 30 minutes, would like a refund)
    Mass Effect, a great series, that degraded with every sequel it had.
    Dragon Age maybe never was that great, but Dragon Age 2 was a really bad game.
    Battlefields were great, until BF 3 (not that bad game though, only major disappointment what should have not been expected from Dice).
    Command And Conquer series has degraded with every sequel as well.
    I wont go to sports series, because havent played those since Sega Megadrive/Genesis times and never been big fan of EA sim games.

    Series that EA hasnt fucked up yet are,
    McGee’s Alice (though it seems McGee is trying to rescue that IP from greedy clutch of EA)
    And Mirror’s Edge.

    • Graeme Lynch

      Mass Effect 2 was the best entry in the franchise.
      Dragon Age Origins was obviously a great game by selling over 3 million copies and winning countless awards. DA2, granted was not on par with Origins, still sold over 2 million.
      Also just to point out that EA have little to do with the way Bioware develop and create their games as already stated by one of the lead designers.

      • Petri

        All these has a common nominator, and its EA.
        And sad to say, almost all the franchises under EA, has started to degrade.

        I liked first Mass Effect more than sequels.
        Third just didn’t leave any joy after beating it.
        And felt like the game was cut short unplanned, budget or time reasons.
        First and second felt like a party, third was more like a hang over.
        Game ended like a punishment for playing.

    • Arthur Jarret

      They also own Bullfrog’s old IPs but haven’t released sequels to many of them.
      So TECHNICALLY they haven’t screwed up Magic Carpet yet.

  • Zombie_Andrew

    Anyone who belives that Frostbite 2 or 3 wont run on the Wii U is an idiot. Seriously anyone who even thinks Wii U is only current gen capable wont see the logic in Frostbite 2 and 3 being supported for the PS3 and 360 but not Wii U. EA must just stand for Epic Assholes

    I heard from an EA developer (can’t remember the source site) said that frostbite 3 ran fine, but EA just wanted an excuse not to make game for nintendo because of the EA origin thing

    • phaedruss

      Yea EA being greedy irrational jerks. Would they expect Sony to go along with their origin scheme?

  • Thomas Fitzgibbon

    But didn’t someone say they had Crysis 3 running on Wii U and were about to release it but EA stopped them?

    • Aiddon

      Crytek themselves admitted that. The real big sign of fishy business is that EA has no 3DS games planned.

  • Jhal Fullantes

    OOOHH too bad! We won’t be able to play the upcoming Dragon Age, Need for Speed, and Star Wars games (these are the only EA games I care about), oh well! At least I still have my PS3 and planning on buying PS4 anyway. I play Nintendo games and exclusive third party games on a Nintendo platform and I play Sony and some third party games on a Sony platform.

  • Petri

    Though, is this news anymore?
    Or just fishing for hits?
    We already know, that EA is skipping Wii U (dat unprecedented partnership).
    So EA does not matter anymore, as far as Nintendo or Wii U are concerned.
    This is pretty much same as reporting every brain fart Michael Pachter spews out.

    • briwas101

      Which is why Pachter has been pretty spot on with the wii u…..
      Nintendo fanboys: the wii u is gonna sell a million systems when Lego City comes out!
      Pachter: there are no games on the horizon that will spur system sales.
      Who was right? Pachter.
      Nintendo fanboys: the wii u is gonna sell a million systems when Monster hunter 3 comes out!!!
      Pachter: there are no games on the horizon that will spur system sales.
      Who was right? Pachter.
      Nintendo fanboys: just wait until all these cool games are released, the wii u is gonna win this generation!!!
      Pachter: by the time any meaningful games are released for wii u, the ps4 and xboxInfinity will be released and the wii u will be left behind.
      Pachter was right every time before, and nintendo fanboys were wrong every time before.
      So who is most likely going to be right in the end? Pachter of course.
      The wii u officially dies when ps4 and xboxinfinity are released.

      • Petri

        Youre going to have to wait until ps4 and nextbox are out.
        Though doubt they will sell any faster than Wii U has so far, main reason will be the price tag.
        And so far, neither of those next gen systems has any really meaningful games announced as launch games (unless youre a fanboy, of course)
        My guess is that Ps3 and 360 will be in a center role for 1 to 3 years from now.

        But I’m pretty sure youre one of those who were dooming Wii seven years ago, well, I know I was wrong back then.

        I know I have more than enough games to play with my one console and pc, though I havent ruled ps4 out yet.

      • beerkin

        Sounds familiar……where have
        I heard this……..Oh ya the 3ds vs vita.

      • John Raybell

        um, so what about the wii360ps3, have you already forgot the wii out sold those both world wide, set records even. had a slow launch but 2 years later bam out sold everything, same with the ds, and the 3ds, oh and xbox360 was the same way and im better ps3 had the same kind of launch, either way nintendoes consoles and handhelds hate to break it to ya always out sale the other guys, give it 6 months to a year and it will be out selling ps what ever and xbox what ever, the wii u will out sell those if history repeats it self like it has over and over and over. go wiki some stuff, wii,ds,3ds out sold every other consolehandheld, so What do you have to say about that?

      • zerooooo

        Where do you get your shitty logic from. I know that MH3 did increase sales somewhat… Im not even going to explain your an idiot.

      • Michael Jurado

        so we had a bad start no big deal the race isn’t over, fyi people who own a ps3 or a 360 basically all say why would i upgrade i still have like 2 years with my current system so yeah i doubt ps4 and xbox infinity will even come close to ps2 sales why you ask because in all honesty we do not need MORE power than what we have now we need more innovation otherwise we will be playing the same god damn games with different titles and better graphics and the gaming industry will die so sir you can suck it if you think wii u is doomed :P

  • audi lover

    Thank fuck for that the only decent game there is mass effect played both dragon age and completed but was left with a real bad taste in my mouth could have bin so much better

  • DUNNY

    time splitters for gamecube was so AWESOME but ea is raped now i gues

  • Rick van der Linde

    I’m getting a PS4 for Battlefield 4, so no biggie. Some nice Nintendo games are the only games I need for my Wii U. Yes, I’m a casual gamer.

  • MujuraNoKamen

    I call Bullshit on this, EA are just saying the engine didn’t work on Wii U. If they’d have tried a little then the games could have been ported over but EA had no intention to support Wii U anyway due them being dick holes and that origin fiasco. If Wii U can run E4, Cry engine (another project EA canned for Wii U because of their stupidity) and others then frostbite could have been made to run but they wouldn’t bother to do that and this shouldn’t come as a surprise to anyone really just be aware that this is BS, Wii U isn’t at fault it’s EA being EA. I’m aware EA aren’t going to do anything for Wii U from now on but I’d rather they just be truthful and say it’s not Ninty, it’s not Wii U at fault; it’s their greed, laziness and hatred for the superior Nintendo that’s causing problems like this.

  • Magnus Eriksson

    The article states that we will get “tons of first party games”. Really? This is quite an uncertain rumour. The only we know an aprox release date of is Pikmin 3. And history have shown that these dates have not been realiable so far. I would guess that two, maybe three 1st party and not “tons” is closer to the truth.

    • John Raybell

      lol really dude http://wiiudaily.com/2013/04/top-10-wii-u-games-were-looking-forward-to-at-e3-2013/

      And there are a whole bunch more coming, where have you been, we still have 2013,2014,2015 and so on, and you say two first party titles, wtf..

      • phaedruss

        That list is missing X and smt x fe to list just 2. Also wonderful 101.

        • John Raybell

          yeah i forgot a bunch of titles, bunch that are confirmed and bunches we dont know about yet. :)

  • http://twitter.com/ReffaBoy ReffaCarta(Ri Costo)

    I have faith in Nintendo they didnt let me down on the 64 nor the Gamecube the wii toke a hit really bad when all the hype about hd started to come out. Fuck FrostBite and all that other bullshit I cant wait for my Zelda and Metriod and Mario to come out that is were the money is. If nintendo brings out the new mario it will sell better then any other game My opinion

  • Christopher Smith

    The fact that battlefield 4 is coming to the xbox 360 and ps3 shows that EA doesn’t care. The wii u is clearly more powerful than those two.

    • Aiddon

      Crytek had the CryEngine 3 running on the Wii U, so DICE claiming that FB 3 won’t run is them lying through their teeth. It’s always funny how excuses can be dismantled at the drop of a hat.

  • http://www.facebook.com/jim.wanstall Jim Wanstall

    Sick of reading about EA to be honest

  • http://www.facebook.com/antti.jarvi Antti Järvi

    For me this means nothing. I didn’t buy my Wiiu to play games like battlefield 4 or mass effect. I own both ps3 and xbox360 and i will own ps4 when it launches so i won’t miss any games. I bought Wiiu only because of those amazing first party titles. Think about all those amazing titles we can see on Wiiu like Mario, smash bros, zelda, metroid, kid icarus, punch out, donkey kong, pikmin, f-zero, star fox and many others. Thinking about all those games makes me care even less about those 15 ea games. We have great gaming experiences ahead of us so let us be happy wiiu owners =) I am.

  • TrueWiiMaster

    “will be skipping the Wii U because Frostbite 2 ran poorly on it.”
    Sure. That’s the reason. It’s not that EA’s… EA.

  • Extra Vinegary

    It’s such BS how Frostbite 2 was able to run on the PS3 and they say it runs poorly on the Wii U. I will not be purchasing any EA games in the future. The last EA game I bought was Battlefield 3 when it first came out on PC and was forced to use Origin. Origin left a bad taste in my mouth. I am not supporting any EA game. I will not be supporting Dead Space 3, Need for Speed Wii U and Battlefield 4, etc. Fuck EA. I hope no one else supports them and they die off just how everyone wants Nintendo to die off. Also, I hope Boringfield 4 fails and that is the nail in the coffin for EA.

  • Extra Vinegary

    Can someone make t-shirts that say “I don’t buy EA games” on it?

  • Extra Vinegary

    I hope no one supports the new EA Star Wars games either.

  • Johny

    anyone with brain sees that “wii u runs frostbyte 2 poorly and doesnt run 3″ is BS… i call bs on this one… its pretty obvious. even wii u haters cant say anything against it. seriously ? ps3 and 360 can run frostbyte 3. nuff said
    its just some lame excuse they had to make why they’re skipping wii u, because they wanted to avoid their childish relation with nintendo and their childish acting with Origin

  • http://4812cpvideos.webs.com/ Zack4812

    Just put Plants Vs. Zombies 2 on Wii U, and I will be fine.

    WFT frostbyte 2 running poorly on the Wii U?? So NFS most wanted what engine is that game using??????????????

  • beerkin

    The only game I want is,Tiger Woods.

  • tronic307

    Frostbite 3 is NOT the issue. EA is just butthurt because their games don’t sell too well on Wii U. Nintendo fans don’t really care about non-Nintendo games, especially western ones.
    Even in a severe game drought like this, the AWESOME Need for Speed Most Wanted U failed to register with Nintendo fans. We like to cry foul when third parties skip Nintendo consoles, but we’ve already voted them off the Wii U with our wallets.

    • Petri

      Its not that their games dont sell, but the games they released, were crappy ports and otherwise crappy games.
      NFS Most Wanted U was the only game made with heart in it.

      • tronic307

        Sure, but the game we both mentioned is BETTER on the Wii U; it has a Metacritic score of 86%, slightly higher than other platforms. Why do we still treat it like shovelware? NFSMWU has sold 10k in North America, 10k in Europe, and perhaps mere hundreds of copies in Japan! Seems like you’re proving my point; Nintendo fans do not care for these games, period!
        Even if Nintendo had the highest tech hardware on the planet, we would not get these games; the demand just isn’t there. Multiplats have not done well on Nintendo platforms since the 16-bit era. Even then, Genesis versions of Madden outsold SNES versions by like 3 to 1!

        • Petri

          There’s that portion, which already started boycotting EA games, before that game launched.
          I bought it, but thinking of reselling it.
          But still, all the games were old ports.
          And wasn’t Fifa 13 cut down version on Wii U?

          • tronic307

            Fifa 13 was cut down? So was Madden 13. No doubt those were shoddy ports, but I’m sure we’d get FULL support if if EA could count on a reasonable level of interest on our side.

          • david daniel wharton camacho

            its not about that, it is selling significantly well, enough for their goals, they are just burnt because of the nintendo-EA issue, i do care about EA since the only franchice i love from them is NFS and i would love to play the next one on the series but if EA doesnt get its shit straight i wont even get it for pc

  • david daniel wharton camacho

    i love how every one is fighting, including me lol, i love this!

  • William Cole

    EA is going to blow any year now. I never cared for their games. They are “Electronic Arts” correct? The last game that I’ve played and seen their logo on it was Grandia.

  • David Tims

    EA are a very very shoddy “business”. I don’t believe a word that comes out of any of their developers mouths with regards to the wii U and its capabilities. I won’t purchase their games regardless of the platform. They are really helping the whole fragmented community mess across consoles. Assholes.

  • juancaar

    Even though EA is the worst company(and their online server origin is shit) this is bad news… Lets hope that this does not cause aditional trouble for N….

    N should get working on a BIG update for their console… Something that supports most engines…

    Lots of comments about… BAH… EA is only for casusal gamers…. remember who nintendo’s big audience is…

    • NkoSekirei

      im not to worried about ea their dead to me

  • Nathan

    I would love Battlefield 4, that series is more fun for me with the less arcade like feel that the COD series has. FPS multiplayer with large stages and vehicles is so much better than the small corridor crap on COD, IMO.

  • thanos1984

    I don’t care about EA at all but I’m really dissapointed because they are Bioware’s publisher and I love Bioware.

  • Ugslick

    They still have some great games. Its a shame, that they think the Wii U has no long term potential.. Its funny though, I think the PS4 and Infinity will get off to worse starts than the Wii U, at the same time the Wii U really picks up steam.

  • http://twitter.com/alexanderkiff alex

    not having the next Mass Effect is harsh to the Fans! Fix ur Shit EA, Nintendo is God compared to you. Do NOT put yourself above a God- you’l get what’s coming to YA!!!

  • http://www.mpt-online.eu/ Sylux

    None at all, I don’t want to have anything at all to do with EA. Their bullshit statement that WiiU runs Frostbite 2 poorly and it can’t run Frostbite 3 at all, is bullshit, it has been confirmed by other developers that similair engines run pretty much perfect on Wii U a while ago allready.

    So screw EA, lately most I have seen from them are crap games anyway, back in the PS/N64 days they atleast still had some decent games, and many of them I enjoyed, but lately I’m not impressed by what EA delivers.

  • der

    Source? Do you guys realize this is the only site reporting this? If this were true why has no one else reported it? Sounds like WiiU Daily is suffering from Fox News syndrome, where your sources are always mysterious, undocumented, and usually false.

    • John Raybell

      sources for what, the engine not running well on wii u is bullshit, but EA is in fact no longer making wii u titles, confirmed as of april 6th

    • Petri

      Its already known, that Dice admitted being incompetent to make frostbite 2 to work on Wii U (covering for EA’s business decisions).
      And that all future games from EA will use frostbite 3.

      But still, I think they should stop writing “news” about EA, since EA has nothing to do with Nintendo or Wii U anymore.

      And that they write these “news” for same reason they report Pachters brain farts, hits.

  • ICHI

    I don’t like EA as a company but I have always loved Battlefield, the sandbox MP has always just made some wow moments occur naturally! Once on BF:BC2 I stood on a beach with a chopper flying toward me. I sniped the guy on the gun, next the guy in the passenger seat and then the pilot who was at this point aiming for me, when the chopper came down it hit me square in the face! Best military shooter out there is Battlefield, but it’s not the best selling so WiiU can live without it and I will just buy BF4 on PC :)

    • NkoSekirei

      i really dont care wat EA says cause their still butthurt over origin and if their not gonna change i predict they ll sweep the worst gaming company award 3 times in a row

      • ICHI

        In part yeah I’d agree that origin is still a sore part but DICE are just as bad in this story, claiming that frostbite 2 didn’t work on wiiu and so not even bothering to try with frostbite 3! Unlike this story claims, no-one at EA has tried to run frostbite 3, I wonder how long they would go without trying if the nextbox and ps4 sold as slowly as the WiiU?

  • phaedruss

    What a load of BS. The only game i might miss is Dragon age 3.

  • RyuNoHadouken

    none

  • Siu Leung

    wow, EA’s frostbite engine must really suck, it can’t even run on the Wii U? Why would any one license that game engine? They should stick that in their advertising campaign. “Our Frostbite engine sucks, it can’t run properly on all gaming platforms, so gets yours now!” Good for business /sarcasm.

    • T.E Starkey

      Unreal engine 3 can’t run on my old pc, I guess that engine sucks too right?

  • John Raybell

    ok now for the point of this topic which everyone failed to see. The EA title I would like to see would be hmmmmmmmmmm, a new Simcity would be awesome simcity 2 two being after the one that dealt with all the DRM crap recently,expanding on that a ton and no DRM and no Always online crap and a single player mode and online options, would be awesome with a game pad, something different then the million FPS out right now. Played the hell out of simcity on the SNES, would make another great wii u title :)

    Walking around in your city would be pretty sweet using your gamepad like a window and viewing simcity like google streets and walk around and interact with things, nothing major, but some real mayor aspects would be neat, like talking to people on the streets to see what they are happy and unhappy about, find out where traffic is bad and crime by talking to the public. a quick scroll using your game pad and your finger like a mouse pointer, off screen play, two player co-op one on tv and one on gamepad,take care of pathing for air craft control on gamepad, I could go on all day. just some ideas :)

    The only game I actually care for from EA is the Mass Effect like games, since I played/own ME3. But second pick would have been BF4 but never played that game. All in all there is so many good games coming that I think my wallet would accept that I get a few less games.

  • 150Db

    I just want to be noted as the first person to suggest that maybe, just maybe, EA wants to nudge Nintendo out of the gaming hardware market so they can take that place as one of the 3 hardware gaming companies. I can’t see any other reason for their grudge.

  • Shelim Uddin

    Its not because the wii u doesnt support there engines u dumb fucks!!! Ea has summat against nintendo. Wii u daily i hate u! Fake fan website

  • Shelim Uddin

    If bf4 is able to run on xbox 360 n ps3 which are 6 year old hardware, why cant it run on the wii u. Wii u daily doesnt even support nintendo just like ea.

    • T.E Starkey

      Because of the Wii U’s CPU(the install base of the Wii U)

  • devmiles

    i’d say looking at the lineup it’s still a shame so i do care.. it also means nintendo needs to compensate with own output and to be honest there is very little, only some money making VC titles which the majority from is very crap. I do blame nintendo for being so late with their titles and thus kicking the asses of the early adaptors of the console. you can take this as a standard now: whenever nintendo releases a new console you can easily wait for a year or longer to get it with a nice stack of nintendo games…and to be honest again..this sickens me a bit as a fan

  • John Madsen

    EA is a dead dog waiting to be placed out of its life see if EA doesnt make games for the wii u then there company can be sued for being a monopoly and using that monopoly to help sony and microsoft which is illegal under law so i hope ea likes the goverment fines coming there way

  • routerbad

    John,

    You know full well that Frostbite2 “not running” on WiiU has nothing to do with Frostbite3 not being developed for WiiU. EA are pulling support based on the current business relationship, nothing more. Their employees are going to do whatever they can to save face for EA, and if it wasn’t for Criterion making the VG media rounds NFS would have been nixed just as Crysis3 was.

  • miketernet

    If a game is not coming to a system it doesn’t count as news. If something is not happening, it is not an event worth reporting. I could see that blogs like yours are writing stuff like this to further discuss a trend, but i would stay stop now, because you are now moving into beating a dead horse territory.

    yeah we get it, there’s not a lot of third party support for this system. but writing article after article reporting all the games not coming to the system is just space filler, it’s not journalism. even amateur journalism. it is sloppy because even then you don’t even have anything interesting to say about the dearth of third party support. it is just mindless fluff.

  • http://www.w-o-n.org/ GoldDreams
