if it supports Wii U Pad play and it isn't something i want to play mouse and keys, i will probably get the Wii U version, presuming all other things equal. like, for example, NFS: Hot Pursuit I got on PC, but i'll take slightly inferior resolution and graphics for a game i can then play upstairs in bed or on my big HDTV when the whim takes me.

things that will sway this position back to another platform? 3D support.

mark me down as another who is going to play Aliens Colonial Marines on Wii U over the PC. bonus fun for horror games... screen in your hands + dark room + headphones = scary experience!

I'm more than happy to buy multiplats on Wii U as long as they're not shoddy ports, and they give the Wii U due respect. I want the "Third party games don't sell on Nintendo" idea to be busted this gen.

However, I refuse to buy something like ME3 on Wii U, when I know other formats are getting the trilogy for the same price. I want to support third parties on Wii U, but they have to play their part too.

I guess I worded that poorly. I wasn't trying to discourage anyone from doing this. I think all I was trying to say is that it's going to take more than the backlash of a bunch of Nintendo fans that EA couldn't really give a crap about to change anything. I really, really hope I'm wrong.

If I recall correctly, their reasoning for not putting online in to the PC version of Sonic All-Stars Racing was simply "Everyone's going to pirate it, so why bother?"

How did the Wii version of Sonic Racing do?

The problem is that it isn't a game people will rally behind, at best you will get people who (will) only have a Wii U andwant to play ME3, one of the reasons Operation Rainfall worked was because very prospective buyers had had the chance to play it.

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.

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

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.
