EA on Wii U: Not a next-gen console

#21MichaeIPachterPosted 1/30/2013 3:53:22 PM
This is because EA is the smartest publisher in the industry. They know there's no future for Nintendo systems, which is why you see them make brilliant moves like rereleasing games like FIFA12 as FIFA13.

It's a profit deal.

So the Wii U is weaker than the PS1... :O

Ah, here's the full quote.
Q: Wii U — you're not pursing aggressively. What does this say about consumers adopting next-generation consoles in the future?
A: Never count Nintendo out. They have great IP. You will see a bounce when they bring these IPs out. We see no correlation between Wii U sales and what we expect from other next-gen consoles, can't talk a lot about that though. What we describe as "Gen 4" is yet to come. We're excited and investing in it.


They said "other next-gen consoles." Which means they consider the Wii U next-gen. Complete and utter news fail.
"Gen 4" is probably referring to their titles or something, like "Gen 4" of Battlefield or MOH.


That makes sense now it's a parsed quote to grab headlines

Exactly this. From that quote he means that a true next gen game hasn't come out yet not that the WiiU isn't next gen

ZombieWiiU looks nice but it's clearly not what anyone had in mind when they think "next gen"

Gen 4 = ps4/720.

Word for word quote from investor call...
Ours is an industry where a lot of devices come in and represent themselves as the next generation or the next generation after that. You know in many ways, we would argue that the gen— what we're describing as "Gen 4", is yet to come — and it's that we're excited about, and that's what we're investing in, and frankly we've been quite consistent with that for some time, recognising the frustration our inability to articulate precisely why, causes for you.

Ea is making games for Wii U? Yeah let's make 100 topics proving trolls wrong.

Fanboy A: who cares! EA sucks now anyways. We don't need them!
Fanboy B: Pssh EA Has always sucked! They never made a good game!

Ah, that's much clearer. Thank you for the correction.
I'm still not entirely sure what "Gen 4" is referring to though. 3D leaps?
