Origin service doubtful for Wii U

We already know that Nintendo’s upcoming Wii U console will incorporate a certain degree of connectivity with EA’s Origin service. Details on exactly what this will entail are thin on the ground. At the very least, it seems that all EA games being played on the Wii U will have to be authenticated by Origin. In a new interview with CVG, EA’s Peter Moore has shed a little more light on the matter.

For the moment, Moore does not seem keen on bringing the full Origin service to the Wii U platform in the near future, simply stating, “We haven’t made any announcements on that.”

Moore goes on to iterate his belief in Origin as a purely mobile and PC-focused service, “Origin continues to be a PC-centric service, one that’s moving quickly to mobile, but as things evolve in the coming years we’ll look at where the demand is. But at the moment Origin is very much PC-centric and mobile-centric.”

These comments would seem to disqualify the Wii U from gaining the full Origin service. Check back for more news on this issue in the lead up to the Wii U’s launch next month. EA will have three titles available at launch: Madden NFL 13, FIFA 13, and Mass Effect 3.
