Forums - Nintendo Discussion - EA Sports Engineer: Wii U is crap, less powerful than 360. No money for 3rd parties.

I think this pretty much proves there *was* something going on behind the scenes between EA and Nintendo. One of them seriously screwed the other one over (and considering how pissed EA is Nintendo did something stupid too).

If this was just a factual business decision EA wouldn't go on trashtalking the console and destroying their future business relations with Nintendo.


It proves that it was cleary a business decision after analysing the Wii U market:

Yep, we've got plenty of problems, but WiiU isn't where that family/casual market is. It's on mobile/tablet now!

Quit with the nonsensical conspiracy theory bullshit because that is exactly what it is - utter, utter shit. EA isn't trash talking Nintendo; some idiotic software eng wrote twitter comments which he almost certainly isn't authorised to do so and he's defending EA's decision, not random bashing. Stop trying to spin this into something it isn't.

Keep in mind, this was totally just one dude who has no official spokesmanship like role.

That said, I'd say that something happened before then gen is likely due to the OTHER News that broke.  That they have 0 games in production.

 

They claimed unprecedented parternership nd then delivered a few old ports and some multiplatforms and they have nothing in development.

 

Which likely means any new IPs... or new games would have to have been scrapped nearly immediatly after they said that, otherwise you'd think they'd just be still releasing them due to how much they'd cost to that point.


Yeah, if this was just this guy going crazy on twitter it'd be a non-issue. It's everything combined and the total 180 they turned after e3 2011. 



Well, no official statement from EA yet then? Or are they not even bothering to explain their actions anymore?



 

Here lies the dearly departed Nintendomination Thread.

Could you please stop this now? I got it: I have no idea about anything going on in this world and you are only interested in the hard, un-emotional side of this. Can we move on? There's no need to rage on me every single time.

Those are some harsh criticisms. That's a really unprofessional way to express them.


Maybe so... never the less it looks more and more likely that EA is actually saying it while other 3rd party companies nod. Its a simple fact. Nintendo f***ed themselves with the WiiU, and it has an even worse 3rd party crisis on his hand then what the GC had during its mid cycle.

Lets start an online petition to get this guy fired. I mean people at microsoft get fired for saying "whats the problem with being always online? my phone is"

So this should be reason enough to fire the guy twice!

Going down the route of denial and conspiracy theories helps absolutely no one so look at the evidence and assess that rather than ignoring it. 



Will I get banned if I say I kinda agree with him?

Good, good. Twitter has its purpose. People show how companies really think inside.

Too bad Nintendo is too professional to let EA know how they feel...
