I have and will continue to have a place in my heart for Nintendo. In fact, my first console was a Super Nintendo. The video game market has changed drastically since the early '90s and it seems like what once was platinum is more so along the lines of silver now. Nintendo has always been...

EA's Peter Moore Declares Wii U "A Disappointment"

Posted on Monday, July 8 @ 16:54:35 Eastern by


Peter Moore, Chief Operating Officer for the EA Sports division of Electronic Arts, did not mince words in his interview with GamesIndustry International when he called Nintendo's Wii U a "disappointment." Considering that Electronic Arts' new Ignite engine doesn't support Wii U or PC, this is not that much of a surprise.

Like the Wii before it, the Wii U has become notorious for not gathering strong third-party support. Even Ubisoft turned Rayman Legends into a multiplatform game after witnessing, as Alex Osborn reported, the poor sales performance for ZombiU. No wonder they've so far postponed a sequel.

Similarly, Peter Moore will not be pushing Wii U software either:
We were there with four games for them [at launch]. It's been a disappointment when you look at sell-through and, as a company, we have to be very judiciosu where we deploy our resources.

The lack of online engagement that we see on Wii U [is troubling]. It's so integral to what we do. They're so small it's hardly worth running the servers. It seems like a box that's out of sync with the future of EA - which is one that gives a real social feel to our games. The Wii U feels like an offline experience right now.
With triple-A third-party developers investing heavily in high-end graphics, multiplayer support, and social integration, their interest in the Xbox and Playstation consoles over the Wii U is clear. It will seem that it will fall to Nintendo, alone, to hawk the Wii U as the holiday season approaches.
