We live in a world where Nintendo gets better support from Microsoft than EA

Forums - Nintendo Discussion - We live in a world where Nintendo gets better support from Microsoft than EA

I only really noticed that today, but it's honestly true. 

E.A basically gives just FIFA and that one Fi game. Meanwhile Microsoft puts on Minecraft, the recent Minecraft new title, Cuphead....and beyond that as E.A does less Microsoft does more. 

...I also get the idea that more effort is in play on the Microsoft end than E.A. Also a lot more willingness and enthusiasm. 

What a weird timeline....



The Democratic Nintendo fan....is that a paradox? I'm fond of one of the more conservative companies in the industry, but I vote Liberally and view myself that way 90% of the time?

Really nothing weird about that. EA despises Nintendo. Microsoft does not.

It may seem weird because Microsoft is a console manufacturer, but they have decentralized Xbox to branch out a while ago. This means that the general rule that a console manufacturer doesn't make games for competing consoles isn't valid anymore.



Legend11 correctly predicted that GTA IV (360+PS3) would outsell SSBB. I was wrong.

Who cares about ea anyway, they can do whatever they want with their micro transactions and copy paste sport games.

A new game is unlikely to be announced. A character for Smash or the confirmation of a port (such as the first Ori game) are more probable options, especially the latter.

True. Maybe Battletoads, but that did not look very good unfortunately.



Well, EA is filth, what do you expect

Legitimate support, seeing as the system sells quite well by many metrics.

EA and Nintendo has some type of hissy fit before the Wii U was launch in 2012. EA has yet to get over whatever caused this disagreement. Its kind of pathetic at this point.

People need to stop and think before bashing on EA (I know it's fun guys, and in most cases they deserve it) Porting EA's biggest franchises into a Switch would require much more resources and money than porting a game like Minecraft, that can run on a toaster.
