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.

 

EA don't need Nintendo at all now. They're looking like they're calling similar demands to those they did with Sega, though Nintendo don't make sports games (realistic) so don't need to demand full sports title exclusivity like they did of Sega.

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?

Well yeah... based on how games sold.

The best it did at moving 3rd party core games was CoD3 and RE4, launch games.

I can't stand EA, but it would be very important for the NX to have support from EA.

Haha, this is very similar to my thoughts. I've never really cared about their games, but yeah, it would benefit Ninten to have their support.

Specially in Europe, where it's pretty much crucial to have FIFA!

EA has done fine not supporting NIntendo.

But I think EA will support them early on just incase the console finds some success.

No EA means Konami can push PES on Nintendo fans.

However, I think EA will support the console to test the water.

I really don't care that much for EA, they're not THAT important.



If anything this is actually very encouraging. Not only is EA willing to talk and hash out their differences with Nintendo, it shows that they are interested in the hardware. This tells me that the hardware is good, worth developing for, and is garnering interest from the biggest studio around. All positives. On the negative side, it's EA and they're a bunch of douches. Yeah, they are needed to have a successful console because of all of the titles they have the rights to, but man, if one could succeed without them, I would be all for that because I really hate the way they do business. Back on topic, I think this shows that Nintendo is going the right direction, and the console is going to be as powerful if not more powerful than XBOne and PS4. All good things.

Not even an "unprecedented relationship" quote from EA?

Well they didn't lie. This infinitely small amount of support from EA was really unprecedented.



Signature goes here!

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.

Pretty certain NX will initially get FIFA and Madden regardless. To EA, sports titles are essential to building the gaming audience at large. They're trying hard to get Nintendo to acknowledge that.

 After that, I'm sure there's specific titles to port with higher priority. Stuff like PvZ or Unravel are bound to wind up on NX if ports can be done easily. 

I think the hope is pinned on Nintendo being ambitious enough with the NX to give a higher royalty % than MS or Sony in addition to a bundling strategy.

Currently the console market is divided 60-30-10 PS4-X1-WiiU. A scenario in which things now lean 50-25-25 PS4-X1-NX isn't out of the question if Nintendo does things right.



I predict NX launches in 2017 - not 2016
