    No, just NO!


    Word on the street is that Electronic Arts would like Nintendo to make EA’s Origin its digital distribution service with the release of the Wii U. According to tipsters, EA and Nintendo are in high-level talks about the possibility.

    A hook up between the two companies would help Nintendo get a much deeper and more aggressive foothold in the western market and allow the company to court more hardcore players to its platform. As for EA, the deal would help it in a race to combat and compete with Valve and Steam.Idle chit-chat also seems to suggest that Valve may (or could be) pitching a similar deal to Nintendo, as well, but confirmation of this seem quite sketchy, at best.

    There is no denying, however, that should Origin become the digital distribution provider for the Wii U, it could be a game changer going forward, making Origin a much bigger player against Steam.We will have to see where this leads, as deep throats say that no decision has been made yet; however, Nintendo has said that they want to completely overhaul and make over their online presence and online abilities with the Wii U to compete directly with Xbox Live and the PlayStation Network, and you will need solid digital distribution abilities to do that. Time is short, however, and its decision not to build this itself but use either Origin or Steam could prove quite interesting.

    Yeah sorry - those EA scumbags are really making me rage. First they murdered Westwood and Command & Conquer. Then they started adding 5 install limits to PC games. Then they made me wait 2 weeks to play a game i bought off them on EADM (now Origin). They treat all PC gamers as potential pirates.

    Now they've recently started forcing gamers to install Origin if they wanna play games published by them knowing full well Origin is spyware. I recall Guru3D removed DriverSweeper from their download section because it too started using similar spyware.

    And now they're trying to destroy Nintendo - one of my favourites companies growing up. Is it just me or are they purposely going out of their way to destroy childhoods?

    Raven was right to curse though...
    If this turns out to be true, it really is 'unacceptable'

    I installed Origin for the first time yesterday, and had to fight for 1h just to create a damn account! Afterwards, my legally bought game was stuttering so much that i had to use a hacked exe to bypass that origin-spyware-nonsense.

    Origin seems like a huge joke, and coupling quality software to something like that is a sacrilege!

    I don't really care what Nintendo does any more. I have always defended them, even after I bought a DS and DSi only to have an entire DS library of old PS1 and NES ports etc..

    Then I bought the wii...it had absolutely no games within the first 6 months of launch and I hated the new zelda. I sold it after a year.

    Then I bought a 3DS ( knowing the 3D would suck but thinking the games would be good ). I bought the only 2 games worth buying; SSFIV and Zelda and I waited for months for more decent games and absolutely nothing came out....just more ports from older consoles ( Starfox etc ).

    Nintendo have lost it, I have bought every nintendo console and every handheld and since the gamecube ( the last good console IMO...from all manufacturers ) they have not made one thing worth buying for anyone over 8 years old. I don't mean that in a 'they don't have enough FPS games' kind of way, I don't even believe in 'hardcore' or 'casual' gaming, all I care about are original games and original franchises or simply innovation on an old theme. But it seems innovation has been replaced with gimmicks.

    Consoles aren't even about the gameplay anymore, they are about the peripherals and console gimmicks ( motion control, 3D etc ).

    I don't get the people who are having troubles with Origin. All it is is a UI that takes 7mb to run in background and if you have Steam the only reason you got Origin for is BF3. Origin is not the reason for performance issues.

    Personally I like it as like I said it only takes 7mb to run and I don't actually do anything with it as BF3 uses the battlelog which runs origin for me.

    The Wii was a last ditch effort. Nintendo didn't want to gamble on huge profit losses after the Gamecube didn't sell too well. So they went for cheap hardware with new ways to play. It paid off and now Nintendo are rich enough again to take risks on better hardware.

    The Wii-U comes out in late March and has better processors than the 360 and PS3 and features full HD. More developers of hardcore games will want in on that. More developers = better chance for originality on that platform.

    Using Origin as its download service - hugely bad idea since its so buggy. Nintendo's own Virtual Console online shop works just fine. It could do with a better progress bar to see how long ur download is going to take but other than that, no problem.

    Origin would slap download limits on games bought from it. And on a console that is ridiculous. But EA will do it if given half a chance, mark my words.

    Casual gamers outnumber elitist PC users one thousand to one. Hoards of old folks homes and day care centres will be wired into Origin.

    Valve won't know what hit 'em. But Valve should be OK, they have plenty of hats.

    Hopefully Nintendo will choose Steam over Origin. Or just go with their own.

    If this happens I am torching EA's HQ.

    I don't think the OP could tone down the language for something like this.

    Not sure why they would need to use something like this when they already have their own service.

    Though the considerable amount of marketing skills/money that EA has, this is something that might help the Wii U be competitive against Sony and Microsoft in non motion control gaming, especially in the west.

    When it comes to using it on a console though, it really won't make a difference which service they use, they are all just about identical, and 95% of the end users won't care less.

    you go to Kiddy porn sites you dont want other people looking at?

    They're "spying" on your usage habits like Google, Facebook, Microsoft and alot other big companys do.

    It's in Origin's T&Cs

    It doesn't spy on usage habits, or pictures/documents, it just scans to see what other EA software you have installed.

    I've actually been abit disappointed with Origin, i was expecting an influx of EA marketing since installing it, but i've had nothing.

    Funny how the first thing that comes to YOUR mind is kiddy porn. Im worried about them taking money under the table and selling my credit card/bank account details.

    Wrong! They scan any files they want - not just ur installed programs. I am not gonna let some deceitful key-stroke system bag my hard earned cash.
