EA: Nintendo not a supporter of online games
“Nintendo isn’t supporting the developers in that area enough, so doing that isn’t viable at the moment.” – Erik Zwerling, My Sims PC producer
This statement was in response to a question posed by a blogger at EA’s Bloggers Day for The Sims franchise. The blogger asked why online functions of My Sims on the PC were absent from the Wii version of the title. Nintendo has been known for being a more cautious company regarding online functionality, but there are quite a few games out there that have, or are working to incoorporate online. The Conduit, for instance, will most likely include WiiSpeak support and at least 16 players online.
