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.

It’s Nintendo. They love not listening to their fans. Nintendo does not have enough 3rd party support or any real good original IPs that aren’t 20 years old.

I’m talking about games like; Mario, Mario Kart, Zelda, Super Mario Bro, tec etc. It’s getting to the point where Mario and his retarded looking brother Luigi are not getting the sales what Nintendo thinks they should.

COME ON GUYS! Make something new! Metroid is badass! Sadly you suck and Nintendo’s technology sucks ass too. I feel so stupid and taken because I got suckered to buy a Wii that collects dust.
