Wii U won't be getting Madden nor Tiger Woods?
Thank goodness!

Yep, it sucks to be Nintendo or better yet a Nintendo Fan at times but this Nintendo-third party issue has been going on since the N64 days and yet they survived each generation and released some of the best games ever made. I think EA never released anything top notch exclusively for a Nintendo console so i guess they don't care or simply don't understand their consoles.

Either way who needs EA when you got Monolithsoft?

Makes me proud of my 10+ year EA boycott.

RIP Origin Systems, Westwood Studios, Bullfrog Productions, Maxis, and many more.


Keep boycotting them just because of their feelings with Nintendo. EA has had some of the finest third party titles this gen has had to offer.

Actually, my hate for EA started during the 16 bit era when I only had the Genesis.  They let all their good IPs (Road Rash, Desert Strike, Magic Carpet, General Chaos) to die and mass sequel all the ones I don't care about.  They completely ruined the Command and Conquer series which rivaled Warcraft/Starcraft back in the day.  They pretty much ruin any IP/studio that they buy.


Well until they ruin Bioware theyve got my attention. Theyve also got Crytek, Dice and more so.....

Boycotting EA? Thank God the masses don't think like you. FIFA is one of the biggest sports IP and not having that, or that game not selling well on Nintendo consoles will only continue to let EA ignore Nintendo.

Their sport games don't impress me.  NBA Live looked and played like shit (hence why they haven't released one in a few years).  NFL2K was of equal quality to Madden if not better (monopolize NFL to cut out competition).  Sure FIFA might be a decent game but they supported it like shit on the Wii (FIFA 13 was almost identical to FIFA 12 on Wii).



This is the year Wii U gets 2 gamepad support and full features for Madden. You can't judge a new system by a game that has no legs/most people buy within first month, not to mention a gimped version (no physics....what madden fans been complaining about for yrs).

It's a vicious cycle that can't be stopped. Nintendo gamers boycott EA because EA ignore Nintendo because Nintendo gamers boycott EA because...

I don't understand these boycotts. Why would anyone boycott EA to have their games on their console?

I started my boycott because they wouldn't release another General Chaos back in the late 90s.  I didn't really care what console it came out on (considering I bounced from the Genesis - PS1 - N64 during those days) I was just upset that some of my favorite series (Magic Carpet, Command and Conquer, Road Rash, etc) were neglected/ruined by EA while they were considered the king of sequels.  I am mainly upset at what happened during the 90s/2000s (gaining exclusive rights to NFL).  Whatever EA does now is just icing on the cake for me to continue to not like them.  It seemed like they were making a change for the better a few years ago but I am afraid that was a false sense of change.

They don't want to play their games but still want them deep inside to help the console sell. So, when EA have already begun this "defecation", there is no other choice for the Nintendo gamer but to boycott. They don't want their games anyway! Win-win

I was born hating EA. It's just a part of my life.
