Forums - Nintendo Discussion - EA is not committed to Switch, they don't understand the Switch market yet.

EA only made Fifa due to contract. They never had plans beyond that title.

Ahem....i've known EA since I was a young lad. Please let me translate this...

EA not understand the switch= I cannot find a way to beat Nintendo games in quality and nickel and dime their customers on an annual basis. If I cannot, I am at a intellectual and functional crossroads. :)

Same with them and Sony though. The quality of Sony games are way superior to EA.

Yep. Console first party should always have titles meant to draw people to their console if they want longeivty. Why do you think EA tried to copy God of War and Uncharted with Dantes Inferno and Star Wars 1313?  This iss why Sony, Nintendo and their first party are pivotal to the industry. They both learn from third party too so its a reciprocal thing. They just make their games with a unique flare.



Oh EA hehe..

They dont understand making games in the first place.

And the great games they have, they will probably kill. Wouldnt be surprised if they terminated the Titanfall franchise since it didnt perform as they expected.

They do have another game coming though. Fe, developed by Zoink. Probably Zoink that really wanted it on the Switch though..

A business attempting to gauge a market before jumping in?

That's just awful. How dare they.

They are all about numbers. If the numbers are a bit off, they panic.

Bethesda is a great example of how to do it. Port some games and see how they do. Im sure Skyrim will do well. Doom might be a minor success. The port of Wolfenstein 2 is a bit beyond me tbh. I just dont see that doing well at all.



What a surprise.

I dont buy EA games so this doesn't bother me.

Besides, if EA doesn't want to support then it's their loss and they wont be making any money.

Not that I don't believe it but what contract?



Can someone put EA out of its misery, please? Better companies have closed whilst EA is still standing and killing all its surroundings with its reverse Midas touch.

 Microsoft and Activision both work by the same creative logic as EA, which is business first, creativity second. The only reason EA have any creative credibility is because they bought DICE, Bioware and well...they had Visceral (Much in the vein of Microsoft owning the Halo and Gears IP, As Activision with Infinity Ward) They arent even the best at making Sports games and this is where I think they and Microsoft paralel. They make killer simulations that you can mik on a yearly basis. The problem with Microsoft is its only one sim franchise in that genre that they have to milk.

Oh my God who the hell cares? EA is total trash, garbage even.

I'd go as far as to call them nothing more than Cabbage Muff. Their games are nothing more than pathetic attempts to take every dime from you. Not to mention they release incomplete games and close studios with potential.

Stay away EA, we don't like you.
