Oh, I am going to regret this one.
Look, actually read the question and respond to it.
I am aware of the EA Origin thing. EA wanted Origin to be the operating system of Nintendo online. Nintendo said no. That is said to be the basis of issues between Nintendo and E.A, on top of any sales issues.
Yet that was several managers ago. EA has changed top heads at least twice since that point. The guy who bought Star Wars was replaced by a guy who preferred to focus on original content, and he might be gone now too I am honestly not sure.
That still is at least one top brass guy since then, so why is the mood still there?
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?
