EA has been out of the Wii U’s corner almost before the system even launched, however times have changed and there is some slightly new management in place. As such, EA’s Peter Moore wants to see the Wii U succeed, and they feel competition between Microsoft and Sony is really healthy for the industry. Here is what he had to say to GamesIndustry:
“Consumers love it as well (console wars), and it’s good for the industry. You need powerful companies like Sony and Microsoft to be battling out with each other because it drives investment in their platforms. It drives competition. You want to see Nintendo come back with the Wii U. All in all, it becomes healthy for gamers, for the environment. When you have a runaway winner, that actually has a reverse effect.” — Peter Moore
Competition is certainly healthy for any industry. Here’s hoping the Wii U turns around—with or without EA’s future support.
