This is a bit shocking when you consider the long history between Nintendo and EA but the truth is that Nintendo doesn't need EA to succeed (and never has if you really consider their history). Never once has an EA title been a system seller for Nintendo and the audiences for both companies are actually quite different. While some will proclaim doom and gloom for the Big N, the truth is that Nintendo's new direction seems to be moving away from the traditional console mentality. They are shifting their focus away from competing with Sony and Microsoft while bringing themselves more in line with devices such as the OUYA, PC and Pads for the Indie games while keeping their distinctive "Nintendo Console" branding for their own games. It sounds like a crazy strategy but with the mainstream game industry on the verge of a major crash and the economy still in the toilet, it may just work. Indie developers are literally being pampered by Nintendo and rumors are pointing to Nintendo welcoming touch based games/apps from tablet developers as well meaning that the Wii U may just be setting itself up to focus on the one part of the industry that shows actual growth.
