During an interview with Japanese gaming magazine Famitsu, Electronic Arts newly appointed chief operating officer Peter Moore has expressed how happy he is regarding the online capabilities of the Wii U – stating that EA would be able to “differentiate ourselves from the competition more easily with out sports lineup”.
It was recently rumoured that EA were battling with Valve to provide their respective Origin and Steam digital distribution services for the console.
“It’s a very exciting machine and I’m glad to see it out there. I mean, a hi-def Nintendo platform! There’s nothing that could make me happier”, Moore exclaimed. “Its online capabilities are really extensive, too, so we’ll be able to differentiate ourselves from the competition more easily with our sports lineup.
“We can’t announce anything yet, but what I can say is that Nintendo is a company that’s been producing new types of play culture for years. The 3DS and Wii U have taken on that DNA, so I really can’t wait to see what kind of new surprises are waiting for us”.
Moore is no stranger to praising Nintendo’s latest home console, promising that EA would bring their key franchises to the platform.
