What's this obsession of Nintendo fans with EA? Last time I checked they were the worst thing that ever happened to gaming and Nintendo fans look at it and say: "Damn, I wish worst thing that ever happened to gaming senpai would notice me".

It's just one guy and it's always the same guy.

Oh is this real? I was watching Easy Allies and they were sort of surprised how quickly the Xbox Briefing ended. 

Yes because it was reported the conference was 2 hours and 20 minutes long while we got only 90 minutes.

Riiiiight... they cut off about 45 minutes because Miyamoto didn't show up.



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

The yes was for the cut shorter, I also watched with the easy allies community :).  MS sheduled for the conference to be around 2 hours. Reports said it could go up to 2 hours 20 minutes that's why people were surprised it was over in 90/95minutes.






I'm cool with that. Microsoft actually makes games I give a damn about



Interesting topic. Would Microsoft be happier in a world where Nintendo is the market leader, or Sony? I'd have to think that more support for Sony would also mean more cross platform support for Microsoft, but perhaps Xbox consoles fare better in a market that is lead by Nintendo.

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

Honestly how I feel about most of EA games.....

EA owes us a new Dragon Age (for us that dont care about their sport games, or online multiplayer focused shooters)

Probably because so many buy their sports games, that without them, a console is legally dead.

Also, EA is the only company allowed to produce American Football games since they acquired total exclusivity rights for it. So not having Madden on Switch means for many in the US that they would have to buy another console just for that game, for instance. (I still wonder how much they bribed the NFL for them to agree to such a stupid deal)

But I agree about their non-sports titles, these are really not needed on Nintendo platforms.

Dunno, let me check the sales of Fifa... Fifa 18 sold... 24 million copies?

Yeah no one cares.



LTD Sales Predictions: PS4 - 130m, Switch - 110m, XBO - 52m
2019 Sales : PS4 - 15m, Switch - 18.8m, XBO - 4.8m
2020 Sales: Switch - 22m (Peak Year)

True, but those aren’t the games hardcore gamers care about, those people who buy fifa every year are just soccer obsessed Europeans. Who in their right mind would spend 60+ dollars for the same game every year.

how about the Americans who like their yearly Madden?

Also, everybody who plays CoD, with it's yearly reskin. Without campaign, there's really no reason to call it anything else anymore.

So yeah, Fifa, Madden, CoD... I think we've got about half of the PS4/XBO gamers in that group, plus a small chunk of Switch and PC players. Quite a lot of people who would need to not be in their right mind, and a rather large percentage of gamers in general.

You could also add Just Dance players into the mix, since apart from the song selection, there's not really any changes there these days. And Singstar/Buzz during PS2 days.

you just described  modern gaming’s biggest problem,

i know call of duty sells 20 million copies every year, but I didn’t buy it.

yes madden/ fifa buyers are basically the same, and as far as I know the ones buying just dance are little girls, those are not the games I care about and if my favorite console doesn’t get those games I wouldn’t be missing anything.
