EA's Peter Moore Declares Wii U "A Disappointment"
Posted on Monday, July 8 @ 16:54:35 PST by Nicholas Tan
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:
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.
