@Whitewatermoose I'm not sure if they needed to money hat Rocket League. Nintendo may well have approached Psyonix first but I doubt they needed much convincing. They'll have saw the potential for it to be a huge hit on Switch and going by its position on the Eshop charts,they were right . Remember Psyonix were just a small indie dev who hit the big time with one game. Now they have their big hit, it makes sense for them to want that game on as much systems as possible. I won't be surprised if it turns out to be the most downloaded title on the Eshop at the end of the Switch's life.

Nintendo sells cornflakes, EA sells tomatoes. It's only normal.

EA haven't come up with an original thought in gaming since about 1992.

Not not having them on Switch would be no biggy.

@Kirby-in-Kirkby Boom-Blox on Wii was a good game and certainly an original idea, especially for its time. It was developed in conjunction with Steven Spielberg. The sequel was great too.

Their motion controlled sports games on Wii were superb,especially once motion+ arrived. Grandslam Tennis and Tiger Woods 09/10 are 2 of the finest sports games I've ever played. They absolutely nailed the motion controls in those. I'd love to see them bring those back with Switch.

@OorWullie Everyone, that really thinks shouldn`t defend ea. Play their games, but don`t buy anything new.

@Whitewatermoose It`s better to play those mainstream games on XO or PS4 - that`s what they for.

We do need EA on the Switch, they bring to much to the table and if the Switch does better by having EA other devs are more likely to put their games for the Switch

I am just hoping that EA will learn from the back-lash, I'm not personally going to be going out of my way to buy their games until the dust settles and I see where they are going as a company. I also believe in the power of voting with your wallet, and as long as people continue to pay EA for Micro-Transactions, EA will continue to use Micro-Transactions simple as that.

In the past when game devs have done things I don't agree with but I still find my self wanting to play their games but not wanting to support them in their dumb decisions, I just buy the games from a second hand seller, like used at game stop ebay or amazon, that way I get the game without pirating, and without EA or what ever game developer at the time getting my money directly.

I play EA games on my PC and on my phone and I don't see why I wouldn't also want to have at least some of those on my Switch.

That doesn't mean that I endorse all of EA's practices though. In particular, they've never had a cent from me in microtransactions, nor are they ever likely to.

@Anti-Matter its not power - its "always online" aspect

@darkfenrir You're not wrong. Look at the reviews for Gran Turismo Sport for PS4. Mostly 1-2 star reviews, and the reviews (and even critics) are all very upset about the game's always online requirements (you can "play" single player but it won't actually save offline.) And of course the X1 audience flipped the table and abandoned the brand after the "always online" and "just deal with it" launch. There's definitely a chunk of players on both platforms that do NOT want to be always online.

@Rusted_Gold I think EA has built their audience, and they've built it along the fringes of their mobile audience that is used to microtransactions. Their vision of console gaming is "a really pretty mobile game with button inputs". At some point I think it has to be acceptable that that audience is not our audience and the two don't need each other as they are separate ecosystems. In EA's case we get confused because we remember EA in a different era with normal games.....they seem like they want to shed that history now.

@NEStalgia

While most of EA's current games are loaded with Micro-Transactions, that's not all of their games, EA is a publisher and some of the companies under EA still try to make good stuff, they just happen to be owned by the devil.

I do not like EA as a whole, but having EA on the Switch still brings to much to the table, one example being their monopoly on the sports genre, I hate realistic sport games and have I never played a Madden game for more then 5 minutes, But Madden alone would still bring people to the Switch, and since no other company has access to my knowledge at least, other then EA having the rights to actually use Current NFL Players and teams, Madden is all we got for realistic football and losing that for the Switch is not good.

And like I said earlier if you don't like a company don't support them I will still be going out of my way to avoid buying EA games for the time being, but losing EA support entirely on the Switch is, and I hate to say it but more bad then good, right now.

I want EA UFC 2 on Switch. That's the only EA game I care about, and I play it all the time on my One X. It's not gonna happen, but I would certainly buy it again if it did.

If EA brings out 'Fe' on retail that will be one game I'm gonna buy.
I like Zoink Games and it doesn't matter to me who's the publisher.

@SKTTR

Exactly my point EA is an awful publisher, but they have to many good developers under there control that we need on the switch

I'd like to see Sea of Solitude announced for Switch. That's a promising looking game and they've not finalized the platform list.

A Way Out and Anthem are the other upcoming EA games that interest me, but there would doubtless be performance issues to overcome especially with the latter using Frostbite.
