Why does only Nintendo have issues with EA?



God bless You.

My Total Sales prediction for PS4 by the end of 2021: 110m+

When PS4 will hit 100m consoles sold: Before Christmas 2019

There were three ravens sat on a tree / They were as blacke as they might be / The one of them said to his mate, Where shall we our breakfast take?

Because EA overlords hate Nintendo, they don't like fun just money.

Mr Puggsly: "Hehe, I said good profit. You said big profit. Frankly, not losing money is what I meant by good. Don't get hung up on semantics"

Azzanation: "PS5 wouldn't sold out at launch without scalpers."

If I had to guess, and I do, I think it's about the user statistics.

Nintendo STILL won't allow Microsoft or Ubisoft to demand that players create user profiles with their proprietary services, in order to play online.
AND, Nintendo is likely to still offer very little in the way of support framework for online play in the first place.

I'd imagine it to be a "We get it OUR way everywhere else, so if we don't on Switch, we don't play ball" situation for EA.

...Isn't it more logical to assume that their games just don't sell enough on Nintendo consoles to be worth the extra time, effort and money that's required to port them?

No. It is more logical to assume that they have an issue.



NPD released data on the best selling/best revenue generating titles in the US that are third party on the switch up to May.

I've heard some talk that Bethesda title counts are off due to lacking digital, but regardless of that here is what there is there.

https://nintendoeverything.com/best-selling-third-party-games-for-switch/

1 – Mario + Rabbids Kingdom Battle
2 – Crash Bandicoot N. Sane Trilogy
3 – Diablo III: Eternal Collection
4 – Just Dance 2019
5 – Just Dance 2018
6 – LEGO Marvel Super Heroes 2
7 – LEGO The Incredibles
8 – NBA 2K18
9 – Monster Hunter Generations Ultimate
10 – FIFA 18

10th best selling in the most important region for games overall, if not FIFA specifically, and it isn't good enough to get proper support...though it does give me a bit more context for why it feels like Activision has been stepping up support since Crash and it's single developer over a weekend porting a level.

(Hope that guy got a raise for it...)



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?

FIFA isn't much of a thing anyways in America compared to Europe ...

Plants vs zombies and most of there old games from 360 era seem like a no-brainer to port .

So EA hates money after all

Switch needs xCloud ASAP!

Then Switch owners could play all the EA, Capcom, Activision, Rockstar and other AAA games they so desire.

But most do. Many of these publishers are responsible for several of the most popular games in the world.
