EA Is Quitting On The Nintendo 3DS And PS Vita

by Damian Seeto


It looks like the Nintendo 3DS and PS Vita might not be receiving many EA games in the near future judging by recent comments made by CEO, Peter Moore.

Peter Moore was interviewed extensively by GamesIndustry International. One of the interesting topics that were talked about was EA’s lack of development for handheld consoles like the PS Vita and 3DS. EA is now focusing more attention on consoles that show growth such as the PS4 and Xbox One. The company doesn’t see any benefit releasing its games on the PS Vita and 3DS anymore it seems.

Moore said EA “were supportive of both of those platforms”, but then had to refocus its resources. EA had to think if gamers would still be playing on these two systems “two or three years from now”. He continues by saying EA is planning ahead for “FY 17 and 18” and doesn’t think people will be playing on the 3DS and PS Vita by then.

EA may have given up on the 3DS and PS Vita, but still sees the potential of “mobile platforms”. Those of you that own a tablet or smartphone will still get receiving EA games in the future.

Are you a 3DS and/or PS Vita owner and are you sad you won’t be getting many (if any) EA games in the future?
