Third Party Developers Talk Wii U

The Wii U currently has a decent number of third party games.  However, many gamers are unsatisfied with the not only the current selection but also the projected selection.  Nintendo has stated that they plan on concentrating on their own first party titles before they worry too much about the third parties, but some of the third parties have come out to show their stance. Electronic Arts, who ha...

So, apparently EA says it is still developing games for the Wii U

After last week’s surprising comments from Electronic Arts spokesperson Jeff Brown about the company not having any titles in development for the Wii U, many current owners of Nintendo’s latest console were none too pleased about their sentiments. Some analysts and critics labeled this as the Wii U’s “Dreamcast” moment, in which it would be the first domino to fall in...

EA Discontinues Online Pass

Last night, while sitting in a small local bar, sipping on an adult beverage, and watching Michale Graves (formerly of the Misfits) rock out with his band, I felt my iPhone vibrate in my pocket.  Upon checking it, I found that there was an email notifying me that EA is discontinuing their Online Pass program effective immediately.  Although I cannot say that this is a surprise, it is a bit shockin...

Nintendo and EA: A Love/Hate History

In recent weeks, there has been a lot of tension between our beloved Nintendo and the Gaming giant Electronic Arts.  With the announcement that the Wii U would not receive the new Madden, and the disappointing news about the Frostbite Engine’s incompatibility with the console.  Many have wondered where this recent animosity has stemmed from, unaware that neither gaming juggernaut has ever re...

EA hits a wall with the Wii U

  Frostbite is the name of the engine that powers allot of EA’s games, such as Battlefield 3 on Xbox 360 and PS3 using the Frostbite 2 engine. EA’s next generation engine Frostbite 3 is already underway and EA has confirmed the next instalments of Battlefield, Need for Speed and Mass Effect will all be using this engine. So how is everything shaping up with the Wii U? EA DICE technical direct...

EA and Disney Strike Video Game Deal For Star Wars

In a somewhat surprising turn of events, The Walt Disney Co. and Electronic Arts Inc. came to a deal which will allow EA to provide us with the future of Star Wars gaming.  The deal is for “New” Star Wars games, leaving to question weather we will ever see some of the Lucas Arts highly anticipated titles.  However, we are getting new Star Wars games, so I am pretty excited. The exclusi...

EA still struggles on Nintendo consoles

Case in point: Tiger Woods will not be coming to Wii this year. This isn’t the first time EA has discontinued support for Nintendo. In fact, EA has largely had an unproductive relationship with Nintendo since the 16-bit wars, opting instead to work with Sega and the more favorable margin of the Genesis. At the same time, maybe simulation sports fans are a better fit on other platforms. What ...

The EA e3 press conference, what does it all mean to the average Nintendo fan?

EA has given their press conference, and boy was it a doozie. Mass Effect 3, Battlefield 3, and a new Insomniac title were all shown, but as a Nintendo console owner, what does it all mean to you? No mention of Nintendo was  given at the EA event today, but I have a sneaking suspicion they may be holding their final cards until Nintendo’s event tomorrow morning. Wouldn’t it be neat ...

So, yeah, this is a real thing that happened

My brain hurts. I thought stuff like this had died out in the great Wii plastic accessory add-on extinction level event of 2009. Oh, how wrong I was. Just $50 if you act now.

EA: Wii weaker than expected, needs more games

Last week we learned that Nintendo President of Japan Satoru Iwata felt the Wii is not in a “healthy” state and with the release of Electronic Art’s earning report yesterday it seems that EA, being the most prolific third party publisher on the Wii, can’t seem to avoid having the same feelings. Although EA is making the most profit with the Wii than any other console, ...

EA’s Zwerling: Lack of online in MySims Wii “more of a Nintendo issue than on our end”

Electronic Arts charmed Nintendo fans last year with MySims, a cute new Sims spin-off franchise focused on building and construction. The problem? No online. The reason? According to EA’s Erik Zwerling, MySims’ lack of online was “more of a Nintendo issue than on our end.” As we’ve been reporting all week, Infendo visited EA Friday for a look at several upcoming Sims ...

Steady sales help Boom Blox beat anti-hype

Boom Blox failed the midterm, but it just might pass the final. Sales tracking Web site VGChartz is reporting Boom Blox, Electronic Arts’ critically acclaimed Wii exclusive, has sold approximately 250K copies worldwide in its first two months on store shelves. The figures also suggest Boom Blox may have long legs at retail. It has sold no less than 11,000 copies each week in North America, a...
