Rewind, EA Is In Fact Developing Games For The Wii U
Posted by Orla Madden
It's been less than a week since we brought you the news that Electronic Arts confessed it had zero games in development for the Wii U. This didn't sit particularly well with you lovely readers, especially when Senior Software Engineer and Architect at EA, Bob Summerwill, blasted Nintendo's latest console on Twitter.
Time to backtrack just a little bit, as during the Stifel Nicolaus 2013 Internet, Media and Communications Conference, EA's chief financial officer, Blake Jorgensen, reportedly stated that the company is indeed developing games for the system.
Although this all well and good, it was also mentioned that EA isn't making as many games for the Wii U as it is for the upcoming systems from Microsoft and Sony.
When asked which console would go to the top of the podium this generation, Jorgensen had this to say:
You know, I think Nintendo's business was more [an] extension of their last console.
I think what the consumer will find is a lot more powerful gameplay with the new boxes that are coming out, and a lot of excitement, but it'll remain to be seen as to the services associated with those as to how consumers decide which direction they might want to go.
What are your thoughts on this news, are you happy EA is now involved — as promised before — in expanding the Wii U's library? As always, let us know by dropping a comment below.
