Can WiiU survive without EA support?

Fifa - European crowd
Madden - American crowd
NHL - Canadian crowd
Dragon Age and Mass Effect - RPG crowd
Battlefield - COD haters crowd
Dead Space and Crysis - elite shooters crowd
Star Wars - nerdy scifi crowd

More damaging than it may seem.

If Nintendo has been able to survive with little EA support in the past, then yes, the Wii U can too.

Is that it? The Wii U will be fine.

Considering Nintendo never really had any support from EA for a long time, I can see it doing decently.

EA will come crawling back, they all do.

I think EA stands to suffer more.
Surrender and I will destroy you peacefully.

But they probably won't have to.

In all honesty, if Nintendo could provide shelter FROM EA, We'd get a lot of new innovative titles from smaller devs coming our way.

Yeah, and just a bunch of other trash like

Need For Speed
Mass Effect
Dead Space
Dragon Age

Of course it can survive. But does losing EA hurt? Absolutely. It will just be a while before we see just how much it hurts, or for how long, considering that they may come back to the Wii U. But to imply that it's not a big deal is either stupid or delusional. Missing out on games is not a good thing.
