BobbyBangin posted this article, which discussed how an “anonymous” EA source, told CVG that Nintendo was dead to the company, the statement read:
“Nintendo was dead to us very quickly,” one EA source told me when asked about why the publisher fell out with Nintendo so soon after committing to the system.
“It became a kids IP platform and we don’t really make games for kids. That was pretty true across the other labels too. Even the Mass Effect title on Wii U, which was a solid effort, could never do big business, and EA like Activision is only focused on games that can be big franchises”.
Today EA’s Peter Moore has come out and said the opposite, here is what he tweeted:
Don’t trust "anonymous sources". Nintendo's a great partner. They never have been, and never will be, ‘dead’ to EA… @EA .
