Post Holy crap! EA announces 10 GameCube titles!

http://www.fgnonline.com/nintendo/news/18487.htmlEA Confirms Ten for NCG

Gamecube: Electronic Arts has released the first details on ten titles it will release on Gamecube.

The software giant has plans for ten Nintendo Gamecube titles. These include SSX, NBA Street, FIFA, and Madden NFL 2002, all of which will be showcased on EA's E3 booth.

"EA takes a systematic approach to evaluating new hardware platforms, and we're very excited about the potential for the Nintendo Gamecube," said Larry Probst, EA's chairman and CEO. "Nintendo has a proven track record in the areas of vision, innovation and execution that positions the Nintendo Gamecube to be a major force in the industry."

Nintendo of America President Minoru Arakawa added, "Electronic Arts is one of the world's best developers. We're thrilled to have the variety of games they are creating for the Nintendo Gamecube, especially the sports games which appeal so well to the teen and older players."

Gamecube is set to launch in Japan in September and in North America in November.

Now more than ever, I really can't decide whether to get the Xbox or NGC....

Third parties are starting to take Nintendo serious. That's a good sign.

This is good news? Oh well, EA did release quite a few titles on the N64 so this isn't all that surprising.

"The software giant has plans for ten Nintendo Gamecube titles. These include SSX rehash, NBA Rehash, FIFA rehash, and Rehash NFL 2002, all of which will be showcased on EA's E3 booth behind the booth babes."

Hey, booth babes, sign me on for GC now

"EA takes a systematic approach to evaluating new hardware platforms, and we weed out the companies who mess with us or our affiliates (cough)Sega(cough)."

Hey, they even annouunced support for 3DO and Indrema.

"Nintendo has a proven track record in the areas of vision, innovation and execution that positions the Nintendo Gamecube to be a major force in the industry."

Trasnalated, Pokemon doesn't really compete with Madden, wo swe cna really make profits here.

"Electronic Arts is one of the world's best developers. We're thrilled to have the variety of games they are creating for the Nintendo Gamecube, especially the sports games which appeal so well to the teen and older players."

Translation: How to kiss ass for dummies.

"Gamecube is set to launch in Japan in September and in North America in November."

ROFLMAO

BTW guys, this post was made in jest as I'm pretty bored. EA on board is good news, and 10 titles is great news. I'm also glad 3rd parties are finally starting to look into GC, and we should hear a lot more at E3.

It's no surprise, Nintendo canned their own Football game which was being developed by Retro Studios.

EA doesn't support consoles with competition.

What about the PS2? Do you consider GameDay competition?

Well, when news of this breaks to EA about Visual Concepts porting their Sega Sports series to XBox, EA is going to be scared shitless. I want Visual Concepts to make these games on all platforms; EA is going to be screwed big time. Now that they have actual competition, its going to be tough on them since 900,000 people bought NFL 2K1 on one platform, it could be well over a million on other platforms.

EQ making games on otehr platforms has nothing to do with competition. On the Genesis, EA made games despite the popularity of Sega's NFL series. Ont he PSX, Gameday did great untill 99, and yet, Madden gaems came out efore 99. On the N64, QBC was decent for a few years as well.

The while EA/Sega conflict is due to the 3Dfx contract a few years ago. EA has even stated this a couple times. Still, I've noticed a LOT of Sega fans ignore that and just say that EA is afraid of competition...

Well Exodus, thats kind of like the Square and Nintendo debacle in 1995 and 1996. Many people said Square left because of carts when it was proven by Square that it was because of bad relations with Nintendo. The bottom line is that people still regard Madden as the best. Why? Its been on consoles for the past 10 years. I think that Visual Concepts did a damn good job with NFL 2K and NFL 2K1 got even better. I can't even imagine what NFL 2K2 will turn out to be like.

Correction, EA HAS to be on a console that has competition... GC will get the 2K series' eventually, XBox gets em next year, and SEGA announced that the 2K3 games will be released for none other than the PS2...

EA didn't support the DC because they knew it wasn't going to survive. They decided to focus on platform which have a chance.

Now, with 3 platforms and so many sport games it's going to be very competitive. How many football games (all version) will be available next year?

Ok, I was wrong.

Madden will hit all consoles and so will NFL2K2!

According to EA, Madden on PS2 will look substantially better.

According to SEGA, NFL 2K3 will have online play on all consoles.

Now this would be a great time to see what football game can stack up. I want NFL 2K2 to beat the crap out of Madden but chances are that it won't. However, if it builds up momentum, then NFL 2K3 will surpass Madden NFL 2003. I do think that the NFL 2K series beats out Madden.

I meant to say that NFL 2k2 would be on PS2 and DC not 2k3...

anyway,

The NFL 2k series is better than madden for the sole reason of Online play. If you take that away, then Madden is better. Madden is alot deeper than NFL2k1. NFL2K1 is all about online play... thats my opinion if you got a problem then go play some pokemon shit.

If Nintendo did not have PokeMon what would they have?

Mario 64 and Zelda OOC... the other Zelda just sucked to me.... so yes "Pokemon shit"

If Nintendo spent as much money/time on games like GE and C:BFD then I might consider a GC. But I do think that it was said at E3 that "We will maintain our kid audience"

I could care less if you want the NGC or dont. My point is, is that Nintendo has some the best franchises on their system WITHOUT Pokemon. I hate it when people bash Nintendo solely on Pokemon without even considering Metroid, Zeld, DK, Mario, Wave Race, Perfect Dark, F-Zero, and the list goes on.

You haven't played it. So they couldn't have ruined it yet. There's no opinion about it.

From what it seems like, Metroid Prime is not the true sequel to Super Metroid. On the Nintendo GBA release list, one of their titles was called Metroid 4. Maybe its a side story or a spinoff but its not the true sequel.
