It's sad but it's all about the sales, PS2 has a huge install base and people buying games for it around the world.

FIFA 14 is coming out for the original Wii as well for the same reason.

Well Wii U never got Fifa 13 so I guess they never wanted any sales from Nintendo consoles.

There is a huge PS2 market in South America, this is only based on estimates and sales. Whereas Wii U's market has yet to gain traction, the console is not even 1 year old so this is not surprising.

Lol indeed. I didn't know that.

If Platinum was HAND drawn, she'd be on paper, fool. This is a video game. They just made her on screen, no "drawing" involved -Delano7 on BlazBlue

It's obviously not actually about sales to EA. They supported the 3DO, a console that today is only known for selling 2 million units in 3 years on the market.

I suspect it's not coming to the WiiU because of the Wii version. They probably figure WiiU owners can just get the Wii version and run that. The other platforms are rather lacking in backwards compatibility so they need their own versions. With the Wii version, you can get all the Wii and WiiU owners with 1 game.

"It's not coming to Wii U because of the Wii version." - poor excuse, not legit
"It's not unsual for the game to be skipping Wii U, it's not even 1 year old" - poor excuse, not legit

Outside of the Dreamcast, every modern "new" console has had yearly EA sports games and Wii has a big install base so it's easy to see why there's a Wii version. EA has already said they just don't see Wii U as a viable platform right now, it needs to sell more...plain and simple. Stop trying to come up with ridiculous excuses to somehow not shine a negative light on the Wii U, it is what it is.

EA came out with games for the wiiU they didnt sell, EA isnt exactly throwing games at the struggling systems this time around though, wiiU and vita.

should we say EA hates sony because they arent making some games for the vita? no we laugh it off and say its the vita they arent selling anyway, thats pretty much what they are saying about wiiU, its not selling, why come out with a game thats going to sell less than a few hundred thousand.
