EA backed the "wrong horse"
An EA executive has stated that the company was “backing the wrong horse” when the transition from last generation to the current generation took place.
Electronic Arts CEO John Riccitiello stated:
“The last transition was tough because we typically have two to three platforms and a five year period… One of the biggest challenges, of course, was that not a lot of people anticipated the success of Nintendo that they’ve shown with their wand controller and their Wii.”
EA has been going where the money is at, which is currently with the Wii. Could the support be the reason EA is getting disliked by many gamers? Not exactly. John Riccitiello then went on to talk about how EA will quit making “like” sequels to their games and try to bring originality to the table each time.
