"Additionally, EA isn’t grouping the Wii U as part of its “Gen 4″ roadmap, which includes next-gen consoles."

insert random comments about how EA sucks, EA knows nothing, I who post on NintendoLife know more about the industry than EA and I say that the Wii U is next gen, etc etc

EA does suck, this isn't my reasoning.

I can't blame them due to the third-party failure of the Wii, but https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=JJ6usTE5ZGY

They're right, Wii U isn't next 'Gen', it's the next ERA. :D

I think EA is still upset about the whole Origins deal.

Those are some interesting comments. It sounds like whatever is coming from Mirosoft and Sony will far exceed the Wii U more than what I expected. It a bit disheartning to hear this, but then again I don't buy Nintendo consoles to play EA games. I buy them for the Nintendo exclusives, everything else I have a PC for.

That being said I am quite interested to see what Sony pulls out after reading those comments, I've always thought their exclusives looked pretty good too.

They did much the same thing to the Dreamcast because Sega wouldn't bend to their selfish demands. Terrible company.

Avian fact of the week: The Moa, an extinct relative of ostrichs and emus that inhabited New Zealand, was the tallest bird that ever lived at 12 ft tall (3.6 m). It was also the only known bird to have no wing structure.

I seem to recall some empty suit from EA on stage with Reggie at E3 in 2011 pledging full support of Wii U. We know what their word is worth.

Ehh... You aren't exactly making any progress calling out the potential fanboy responses @Bankai, the ravenous will remain so even if they are being completely illogical. It's a fact of fanbases, all of them.

It almost seems as if you're attempting to instigate something other than discussion, and we all know what a shame it would be to have another thread filled with pointless not-debates.

Anyways, @TheNews:
Don't really care. If the next gen is as a dramatic a change as the last, I'll just try to pick up another console to go along with my Wii U, or maybe get into PC gaming.

I know right. Nintendo wanders into EA's offices and promises this new console that is going to blow audiences away with sheer innovation and silence all the critics. Even Michael Pachter will be forced to eat his words, Nintendo says. It's going to sell bucketloads, Nintendo promises. Expect four million units within just the launch window is the number Nintendo gives EA. EA gets excited about having new hardware to work with and pledges support.

Reneging on promises goes both ways. Not sure why people assume that the only one to blame for EA's cooling of interest in supporting the Wii U was EA. Nintendo's financial results today demonstrate that Nintendo underdelivered for its third party partners too, you know.

On a more serious note anyone who expected EA to invest heavily in Nintendo didn't read EA very well at all. That's a company that has been investing the vast bulk of its spare cash on supporting mobile platforms. Slowly but surely EA is dropping back from console development.

EA is such a tool. The last game I ever bought/enjoyed from them was Batman Begins.
