It doesn't matter. If there are really just one hand full of people interested they shouldn't launch the game anyway. This will at least help them to see interest from Nintendo fans. It's about showing them that we exist, we're not a bunch of robots waiting for the next on rails shooter. If we don't get enough support, sad. At least I really tried.

If you tweet this hashtag enough it gets popular and all the tweets with it can be read by just clicking or searching for this hashtag. Basicaly, since EA has an official twitter account, we're tryin' to get the attention of someone there.

Completely safe bet, given that Crytek said there was a title in development using Cryengine, but none of theirs. Well, at least either this or Sniper:Ghost Warrior 2.

Heh, I guess that's what I still don't get either. Glad I'm not alone. So I should open my twitter account and tweet "@EA #OperationNormandy"? And that would tell EA that I want Mass Effect trilogy for the Wii-U?

New game.

The 3DS version is getting a 3DS eShop release, titled Nano Assault EX, by the way. (adds Circle Pad Pro support, for example)

It would help if you throw in a nice "bring ME Trilogy to Wii U, please" :)

it's not magic, it's still based on simple rules of communication :D

My point is, if you want to show EA that demand is there for "normal" console games then you need as many people as possible, that will only happen with a game people actually want to play(something like a NFS:HP2 or a DS3), & even then it will likely be ignored.

Plus UBisoft Montpellier are working on two WiiU exclusive games, ZombiU and Rayman Legends, I think its safe to say Beyond Good & Evil will come to WiiU.

And I believed them at E3 2011 when they said "we will give the Wii U huge support", Meelow is disappointed :(

Bayonetta 2 was a canceled game that Nintendo saved and but it on there system

Mass Effect Trilogy is a game EA is putting on every console and PC besides WiiU, announcing it months after the WiiU version of ME3 is announced and they are selling them for the same price, and that is a pure joke.

I was just thinking about Reggie's recent comment about unannounced games and it actually made a lot of sense to me when I remembered a credible rumor about the new Tomb Raider for Wii U, and this game comes out on PS360 during launch window. So I wouldn't rule out MGS Revengeance and more surprises (but sadly no Bioshock Infinite for sure).

It would bad for business as well considering Wii U is poised to be the market leader in Japan.
