EA is not committed to Switch, they don't understand the Switch market yet.

Forums - Nintendo Discussion - EA is not committed to Switch, they don't understand the Switch market yet.

The same old story, why am I not surprised?

Let's see, I haven't played a BF since 3, I don't play sports games since I never understood not going outside to play a sport unless your body is fucked up for the long term. I don't remember the last time I logged into Origin on my PC, and I'm waiting to see what Project Anthem will look like but with how disappointing Destiny 2 turned out from a big company like Activision Blizzard, (thanks to console gamers being my beta testers, I was cable to get a refund before release on Battle.net,) things are not looking too good from these big companies IMO and I think the new Bioware game has a high chance to be a disappointment from EA just like Destiny 2 from AB. The Switch will not miss much from EA, EA is most likely not even willing to make Frostbyte work well on the platform and they will not use UE4 anytime soon, if ever. Really not missing much on the Switch unless you really like Mirror's Edge or something.

How do you want me to bring numbers we don't have?

And we can also bring all the bad examples since Wii, what do you think?

I don't want you to bring the numbers, I said stop using the 1% from the UK market as an argument.

And I would apreciate if you you stopped turning everything other people say upside down and use it as an argument. You are using reversing circuits all the time and it's extremely tedious to even talk to you because you will flip everything no matter what and ignore everything that has been said. I can waste my time better, so I won't answer anymore.

I wish more developers/publishers did this.

So only you can use arguments and no one can show your argument is invalid?

See that's exactly what I mean. Thank you. Bye.

Release a sub-par last gen version of a game (FIFA18) where ads were non-existant and where sales are poor = "not committed to Switch, we don't understand the market".

Of course...you release a game that doesn't compare well to current other consoles of this gen so you certainly can't expect it to sell very well with the PS4 and XB1 getting the better game...

I think EA and Nintendo just don't get along well. Just watch that if the Switch continues to do amazing in sales, EA will start making more games for Switch and say something like "We now understand the market" only to release lesser versions compared to other consoles.

There are very few games I actually have any interest in from EA. Which is Mirror's Edge franchise , and NCAA Football (when it was still around). I don't care at all about any of their shooters and not much a fan of the NFL (Madden). So not much lost with losing them.

I've been saying this since last gen. Every game doesn't have to be a bloated budget, "Triple A" project with hundreds of people working on it over the course of four or five years.

Unfortunately, I fear that these giant publishers have trained much of the gaming public to expect that every single retail release should be blowing your hair back with eye-popping graphics, fully voice-acted dialogue and hours of CG/FMV scenes for storytelling, and if the game doesn't have it, then it's cheap low-tier trash.



*facepalm*

I haven't read the thread yet, but damn this is stupid. They are just leaving money on the table. I would probably buy their games, but if they are not available, well then I can't buy them can I?

GameCube
37 retail games total
7 EA games
That is almost 19%. The only company I bought more games from was Nintendo. And that was only 12, so EA did pretty good there in comparison.

Wii
50 retail games
2 EA games
13 new digital games
0 EA games
2 virtual console games
0 EA games
65 total games
2 EA total games
In a generation where I spent a ton more money, EA only accounts for 4% of my retail purchases and only about 3% of all games. Why? Because they mostly bailed on the Wii, and they just showed me I didn't miss them.

Wii U
9 retail games
9 new digital games
0 virtual console games
0 EA games
I have only had a Wii U for about a year, and still have plenty of games I want to buy. Mass Effect is the only game with even a sliver of a chance. Likely not going to happen before I move on. (Also, damn does being a full blown adult really put a damper on game time. )

Switch
After the massive, and now obvious success of the Switch, EA is still taking a wait and see approach? Dumb. Just dumb. If I was a big investor I would be screaming my head off right now. Other developers are already scrambling to catch up (http://www.gameinformer.com/b/news/archive/2017/10/30/report-japanese-third-parties-unconvinced-of-the-switch-are-now-scrambling.aspx ), which means EA is just going to fall further behind. If you stop courting customers, then they are not going to give a shit about your brand anymore. I sure don't.

Can you imagine if EA took the same wait and see approach with the PS4 or Xbox One? I mean, the PS3 had a bad launch before righting the ship the previous gen and the Xbox One had a lot of negative chatter around its launch this gen. That logic would be just as dumb as still ignoring the Switch, so why not?
