Do you know why EA offers limited Nintendo switch support?

EA CEO Andrew Wilson has finally broken his silence on why the publishers limit the provision of support for Nintendo Switch. The primary reason being the players prefer to play EA games over other platforms. The suggestion of sims on Switch was disagreed upon by the EA heads during the first-quarter earnings call of the week.

In the official blog post, the intention and the reasoning of the team head have been mentioned to clear out the unorganized parts of the statements. According to Wilson, while the team is evaluating the conversation platform, there are a couple of things that they primarily look at. In a coherence, he mentioned them as “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?”

The data with Nintendo suggests that a great chunk of the Switch owners also have a Playstation 4 or N Xbox One or a PC or some may own more than one of the above-mentioned consoles. Though the players enjoy the content over Switch, yet they choose to rather prefer playing games that have been made for the other platforms. 

For the present, there are only 4 games that are available on the consoles. Popular games like FIFA are generally prevented by the new features that are available on Xbox or PlayStation which when comes to switch. 

Another great declaration by Wison was that it will be unlikely to see plum bobs on the switch in the near future but it cannot be a prevailing impossibility owing to the changing trends of Nintendo Switch which might consider it later. However, he admitted saying ” I wouldn’t say that The Sims would never go on the Switch”.
