Rumor: EA Wants the Wii U to Be Origin-Exclusive
So, apparently, Nintendo is looking to outsource its digital distribution on the new Wii U platform. Valve is said to be interested in getting in on this, but the new rumor is that EA wants Origin to be the exclusive digital distribution platform for the console.
Now, it would be cool if they went open source with this thing and made it so several different platforms worked on the Wii U. It would, too, be hella lame if only Origin was available on it. That would just be way unfortunate, because it would suck if being banned on the EA forums means you can’t play Wii U games.
Also it would suck because it would suck. If you’re going to outsource, Nintendo, give us options. That would not suck.
