Forums - Nintendo Discussion - EA currently has NX dev kits, Nintendo and EA having multiple meetings in March to decide if they will support the NX

If they are asking that much from Nintendo regarding to sports titles in order to port it, I can't imagine seeing games like titanfall, mass effect, dragon age, etc on the next Nintento console.

Wasn't Nintendo involved in using child workers in its Chinese factories a couple years back? I recall one of their factories having this issue without Nintendo's knowledge. 

Foxxconn was using child labor while producing Wii Us or parts for it.

Foxxconn also produces for Apple, Sony, Microsoft, Intel, Samsung, Amazon and many more.

Why don't you hold Foxxconn responsible for what they are doing?

Oh, I do. But the incident I'm noting was specifically involving Nintendo products, and Nintendo gave a vague response of "we're looking into it" per their CSR. If Nintendo doesn't hold Foxconn accountable they become accountable themselves and we've never heard anything from Nintendo since on that front.

 

Nice job ignoring the second part of my comment though, the part where I'm directly talking about the fact (not accusation) that Nintendo themselves hide their supply chains while the other two publicly release detailed reports on this issue. Gamers like to proclaim that EA is the devil but Nintendo is no better in terms of business practice. They're just better at actually making games. 



You should check out my YouTube channel, The Golden Bolt!  I review all types of video games, both classic and modern, and I also give short flyover reviews of the free games each month on PlayStation Plus to tell you if they're worth downloading.  After all, the games may be free, but your time is valuable!

Ladies and gentlemen, get your bets ready, 'cause this can go either way.

Also, "EA wants Nintendo to do more cross promotion stuff. They've been very disappointed that Nintendo doesn't do EA sports console bundles." How are they going to do that without EA sport games?

Because of unprecedented logic.



EA is important if we like it or not!

Well if thats true then I guess NX is coming this year.

It has little chance of success with 3rd parties Wii sold a 100 million units and still struggled to move core games.

Well I guess Nintendo isnt gonna support my Wii U much longer on top of that.

Still going to insist on that, eh?

at them same time, they probably need a team of 15-20 people to port the newest versions of each game to Wii U each release. When you then consider there first release only sold probably 200-300k at most. Which would not surprise me if that trend would continue. So, they need consider whether those 20 people are better off working on this port or working on bigger and better things.

And sadly they choose bigger and better things.

Maybe the market would have been there if they supported Nintendo consoles more. I know I´m by no means an expert on this topic, but if a game sells let´s say, 250k copies at $50 that´s a lot of money, and I don´t know how much would it cost to port games to a Nintendo console, but if they port it with a small team and the result is of great quality, maybe they could start selling 250.000 copies and little by little, build a new market for those "hardcore" fans on Nintendo systems.

What I mean is that they are delusional if they expect to sell 4 million just like that, without making any effort. What I´ve seen from third parties are some good games, and plenty of trash. If they release shitty games that are bad games (I´m not talking about EA now, just in general) how can they complain? 

Maybe any of you can throw some light into this, and explain to me how much would it cost to port a game. 'Cause if they were really loosing money releasing those ports (EA has released only 3 wii u games if I´m not mistaken) then I can totally understand why they stopped supporting the system.

They weren't losing money even though the games were sent to die. With actual effort, those first releases would easily be 500k+ sellers with room for improvement for it's sequels.

Whats most important here is that Nintendo trying to win 3rd parties back because they know they can't have successful platform without any 3rd party support.

More than that, 3rd parties know there's a way to make their business grow and be more profitable by working with Nintendo.

I bet EA is angling for a substantially higher royalty than what they earn now from PS and Xbox. That makes each NX unit of Fifa or Madden more profitable than a single copy of those games on PS4/X1. Nintendo and EA would have really nothing to lose and everything to gain from such an arrangement. Under such a model, the NX versions of games may still sell worse than X1, PS4 versions - but it remains a profitable going concern for EA so that EA & Nintendo could nurture the growth of that fanbase.

Yes. Nintendo more needs EA than EA needs Nintendo, so EA can be bolder in request like we sawing in this rumour. But I think they will get some agreement.

It's the other way around.

Again, your post doesn't have anything with reality.



EA sucks anyway.
