I'm surprised they're not at least doing a roster update..

Yeah, that really shows the degree to which EA is trying to kill the Wii U. I mean, how little would it cost them just to chuck some new rosters into the existing Wii U Madden 13 (which itself was just a roster update of Madden 12, unlike the PS3 and 360 versions!) and push it out the door as a new product? They'd at least clock 200,000 units, almost pure profit

 

No, EA's leadership still has to be hopping mad.

I'm certain that the "Strong Partnership" comment was only to affirm that if Nintendo start doing well with the WiiU, EA can slide back in and say "hey, we said we have a strong partnership with you guys. Can we start making games for you again?"

And then Nintendo says

a man can dream...

I'm really worried about EA on Sony and Nintendo platforms.

EA wasn't at the PS4 announcement in february and with the rumours of the next game from Respawn being exclusively on X720.

It seems they are aligned with MS.


I'm assuming M$ really has that online DRM thing solely because of this.

EA will support that to death.

I guess Nintendo really is banking on a Western AAA crash in the next years.

So are we going to get Mario football now?

I hope Next Level Games (Mario Strikers series and Luigi's Mansion 2) would be doing that.



Former something....

what is it with the topics now days? Instead of having the discussion ontopic every time it goes to WII U vs Vita!
We know that EA only has a very close relationship with the console makers which have a big install base. And even with those they screw up with sales. Too bad that it's hard to boycott all EA sales as they own a big part of the gaming market.

That Mario football game for the Gamecube (Super Mario Strikers, I think) is the best football game I've played in the last decade, so I'm sure they would also come up with a great version of Handegg.



EA thinks they can get away with insulting its own Madden fanbase. We're not stupid, you assholes. EA really expects nintendo owners to gobble up any piece of shit that they throw together, well they're dead wrong. How the fuck do you omit the new physics engine on Wii U's version, the engine Madden fans have been clamoring for back when 2K football was in the game. On top of that, the game was released 4 months late, which is a must have at launch (preseason football time). Its obvious EA set it up for failure. I hope all the scum at EA rot slow.



Yeah let's drop the Vita >_>.

What about FIFA? That is a more important franchise by far
