EA employee says Nintendo should “done a Sega” and went 3rd party


Console wars, they never change. EA has announced that their EA Sports titles won’t be coming to Wii U and that they don’t have any games in development for the system. Does this remind anyone of the Dreamcast situation?

“Nintendo are still operating like it’s 1990.They should have “done a Sega” and offered Mario/Zelda as PS4/Durango exclusives.

If that wasn’t enough, EA’s  Bob Summerwill Senior SE and Architect of EA Sports, has decided to take to twitter to insult the console by stating that it’s a crap console and that Nintendo should have just went 3rd party (like SEGA did). But it seems that EA probably told him to stop what he was doing, since he has deleted the tweets. But of course, the internet caught on fast.

SEGA inks Japanese distribution deal with EA

SEGA and EA have reached an agreement to have SEGA distribute EA titles in Japan. Seems that this deal will take effect this year, with Shadows of the Damned being the first new title on September 22nd.

SEGA also hopes, starting next month, to put a list of EA back-catalog titles for release. Seems this is a great deal for SEGA. Now lets see if they put more promotional effort into selling Shadows of the Damned in Japan than EA put in the USA.
