Pikachu Posted August 1, 2019 Share Posted August 1, 2019 https://www.ign.com/articles/2019/07/31/ea-explains-why-it-offers-limited-nintendo-switch-support Quote A CEO Andrew Wilson has opened up on why the publisher offers limited support for Nintendo Switch, saying it's because people prefer to play EA games on other platforms. During EA's first quarter earnings call this week an analyst floated the idea for The Sims on Switch, but EA's head honcho disagreed. “Any time we’re evaluating platform conversations we’re really looking at a couple of things,” said Wilson. “One, does the game really fit the profile of that platform in terms of the control or the community ecosystem? Two, do we think the community playing on that platform would appreciate the game and go there, or would they prefer to play it somewhere else? “We have a lot of data that would suggest a great many Switch owners also own a PlayStation 4 or an Xbox One or a PC and very often choose to play the games that we make on those platforms, even though they have a Switch and they enjoy a lot of great content on the Switch."
