EA Sports UFC is a pretty game. The multiple screenshots we’ve seen that showcase what the in-game fighters will look like have proved that. Because of the game’s technical demands, creative director Brian Hayes has confirmed that the Wii U just isn’t in the cards for the next-generation MMA game.

“We're pushing the limits on PS4 and XB1,” he wrote on a recent Reddit Ask Me Anything. “Wii U isn't on the radar at this point in time.”

We’ve heard that one before. Third-party publishers just don’t seem to put much of an emphasis on supporting Nintendo’s latest console, but Hayes hasn’t ruled out a PC port of the game. When asked, he gave an inconclusive “maybe,” which is much better than what was said for the Wii U.

For now, though, expect EA Sports UFC to launch on Xbox One and PlayStation 4 no earlier than June of this year.

Everyone knows the WiiU is going to get shit 3rd party support this gen. I would be sad if it was my only gaming option.

yep. wii u should have contained 4x gtx titan black editions, 64 gigs of memory, 4x 2 tb hard disks, and an experimental 60 core intel cpu MINIMUM.

and a partridge in a pear tree.

This game will be a true next gen game built only for the next gen systems. Props to EA for not releasing on ps3/360 just to make a buck.

I cant wait for this game.

You're so blind you can't even recognize a bullshot, one that's not even near the detail of the UFC screenshots . What you're missing is that this is what Fight Night Champion actually looks like.

I just watched a gameplay trailer on youtube, and except for the lighting, AA and maybe polygon count I could see it being on ps360. The 2d-looking crowd in particular was jarring. I don't see how this could be "pushing the limits."

Yeah really, also they love pushing out DLC too. It's like they're saying, "Don't forget to buy all the DLC or else the game won't be as good!"

it's not really a matter of being lazy or whatever, there' no real market for third party multiplats on the Wii U, hell even when the Wii had such a high userbase third party games had problems, it could only get worse when the system barely has any consumer support

Pretty sure they could scale it back to work on the wii u but with the crappy sales numbers it would be a waste of time and money. Not even Nintendo's games are doing good.

they releases on wii had nothing special...

maybe make it ps3/360 visual at 720p 60fps...but some mario hats or writsbands that you can unlock...similar to tekken on wiiu.... release it on the same day as other versions....amybe put out some commercials with wiiu at the end instead of playstation or xbox?

it can be done just takes a lot of work.... plus they have to cinue it with other games.... an effort no one is willing to make...only then will 3rd party thrive on nintendo.

I own Fight Night Champion. The character models of the real boxers are much more detailed than the generic models for the created characters. The game uses a blur affect, which is greatly distorting the shot you posted. It looks very good during the knockout replays that are zoomed in, and basically during any moment where you aren't actually fighting. Lo and behold, the screenshots EA is showing for UFC aren't taken during actual gameplay, either, so my bullshot is most likely a more fair comparison at this point.

For some loyal followers it is. They need to make it to where gamers can play 3DS games on an HDTV. That is their only hope having a presence in some kid or girls living room.

People get so emotional over EA. If you like their games, play them. If you don't, don't.

Man, I couldn't imagine boycotting them. In the 7th gen I would have missed Mass Effect trilogy, Dragon Age, Brutal Legend, Bulletstorm, Crysis trilogy (console versions), Orange Box (they published console edition), Dead Space trilogy, Burnout, Need For Speed, Mirror's Edge, Fifa, Dante's Inferno, even Boom Blox on Wii :P

They also did other AAA games I didn't play much/at all, like Skate and Rockband and many American sports.

And they have the upcoming Titanfall, Dragon Age 3, Mirror's Edge 2... they get voted worst company but hell, I don't work for them :P

Emotional over game companies? You mean... something almost everyone on this damn forum (or hell, on the internet, via YouTube, Twitter, GAF) does? (Myself included)

You realize simple business practices can screw things up for a lot of people, right? It wouldn't matter if the games were good.

Examples:

Nintendo's region-encoding (which I myself want to see end), earlier censorship, reliance on their triforce (Mario/Zelda/Pokemon) or any of their legacy IP's unless if they haven't been seen in 10+ years, and alienation of third parties (and before you say, this is NOT to victimize them, it's an example of what happens). Capcom and their on-disc DLC tirade (that's what helped in ruining Street Fighter X Tekken, and I'm still bitter about that, since Capcom, unlike BioWare and the ME3 ending, didn't do jack about it). Ubisoft and their DRM practices in PC versions of multiplat games. Hell, I remember when Activision got the most hate for all they did in milking Guitar Hero (well, considering I liked III, World Tour, Metallica, and On Tour Decades, I wasn't phased by this all that much, although I know it still played a major part over-saturating the music/guitar genre) and CoD (looks like Skylanders is next), also when they sued Double Fine over Brutal Legend.

As for me and EA, I didn't boycott them last gen. I played games like Medal of Honor: Heroes 2, The Simpsons, Sims 2, Rock Band 2, MySims, Dead Space (which I haven't beat yet) and am recently getting into Mass Effect (as BioWare is a developer who's games I've never played prior to my recent playthrough of ME1), despite some of their BS back then. It wasn't until the Sim City fiasco that made me not want to buy any more of their recent stuff.

People get emotional over GAMES, as they are art (or at least entertainment, not to start another debate). They affect us, and evoke strong thoughts and feelings. Same as films, books, movies, etc. People will argue to death that Mario Galaxy is the most joyful game ever, or that Deus Ex is the most thought provoking, or that God Of War is the most brutal, or whatever.

Getting emotional over companies though? Faceless profit seeking corporations? Becoming angry at them ("**** EA")? Lol. That's sad. Who cares about companies.

Be annoyed at their policies by all means, and boycott them or not as you please but don't get so worked up about it. You give the impression in many of your posts of just taking this stuff too seriously. Ever hear the phrase: "It's just business?" It means, nothing personal, don't get mad, just doing what's best for me right now. All that stuff you list is companies seeking their profit. Nothing evil or malicious, just business.

EA was great at the start of last gen. Then they started releasing awful sequels to their great franchises, implemented online pass, decided that Sim City should not only have a multiplayer mode, but not even have an offline mode, released the most disappointing title I have ever purchased (Spore), etc. I am going to play Mirror's Edge 2 because I really liked the first game. I will be surprised if it isn't something awful, though.

They can be scummy and they certainly ruined some great series. Couldn't ever swear off them fully tho. Bioware and Criterion are two personal favourite devs they have, and Titanfall is the most "next gen" looking game I've seen. (gameplay wise, rather then graphics wise, before ppl go loco :P)

Yeah, I still play some of their games. I've considered boycotting them, but then I decided that the 3 or 4 games I purchase from them per decade wouldn't really make any difference anyway. It's unfortunate for Cows, though, that they won't be getting Titanfall until Titanfall 2 comes out, and given EA's track record, Titanfall 2 is likely to be quite a big worse than the original.
