Peter Moore, the Chief Operating Officer of Electronic Arts, has taken to Twitter to speak out about the article published by CVG. The article had a quote from an anonymous source at the company who said that “Nintendo was dead to us very quickly” after the Wii U. However, CVG still stands by their article and says that the source was a representative from EA.

Don’t trust “anonymous sources”. Nintendo’s a great partner. They never have been, and never will be, ‘dead’ to EA…

  1. I wouldn’t say that your relationship with Nintendo even exists…but no publisher is ignorant and stupid enough to just shit on a console.

  3. To be honest I didn’t expect anything better or worse coming from EA.

    So many people saying so many things. It’s very hard to tell who likes Nintendo and who doesn’t….it’s ridiculous.

  4. EA are actually a really good company and people give them waaaay too much hatred. They produce so many high quality games for multiple platforms that sell excessively well. Said no one ever

    • Exactly what I am thinking….just makes no sense.

      Surely if they;re such a “great partner” then why cancel so many games that I could be playing right now???

  5. If EA really did care, then why on earth have they done practically nothing for Wii U? Don’t give me the old “low install base” bullshit, because this guy is saying the compete opposite, which might I add don’t believe.

    If EA did care, then they would not have stopped stuff like Crysis going onto the console, something Crytek said ran on the console really well.

    • They did (Madden, FIFA, NFS, Mass Effect) and nobody got them on the Wii U (please no, “they were late or crappy,” excuses). So now they stopped. Yeah, it was stupid for them to expect a lot of people to buy games at launch when the system had a low install base; but then again, third and even some second and first party games have been doing terrible numbers on the Wii U since then.

      If I had a say in EA, I would have stuck with the system at least through 2-3 years, like Ubisoft is currently doing. However, if the games kept doing abysmal numbers on the system, then I would pull the plug on supporting it.

  6. IRONY: Yes yes we know that EA loves Nintendo and consider it a great partner and it’s obvious from the number of the games released by EA for the WiiU

  7. I say.. Screw EA. And screw their games!
    Unless they bring the other Mass Effect games to Wii U. But other than that screw them!

    Unless of course they bring Battlefield to Wii U…day one purchase. But aside from that..SCREW THEM!!

  8. Between an idiot who thought that Sim City Online was awesome just because it sold well, and an idiot who didn’t want his name known, I’ve got NO clue WHO TO BELIEVE. DERP!

  9. EA hates Nintendo since the 90’s, I should admire this retractation attempt but they are still giving total freedom for its employees to say shit about Nintendo, like that senior engineer that call the Wii U “crap” on Twitter.

  10. I’ll believe they think Nintendo is a great partner WHEN THEY ACTUALLY MAKE GAMES FOR A NINTENDO PLATFORM!

    seriously… how can you know if a company is a great partner if you don’t work with them?

  11. I’ll only believe them if they actually put effort on the games they release for Wii U.

    (the previous Dragon Age games, i.g. before the launch of Inquisition, would fit like a glove)
