Nintendo is going big with the online for Wii U. Not only has Nintendo said that, but EA and Ubisoft have commented as well. Just how big are they going to go? The latest rumor points to an all-out war on services.
Supposed inside information points to EA trying to talk Nintendo into using Origin as a main service for the Wii U's online action. Of course, this rumor also states that Valve is interested in getting Steam on there, but EA wants Origin to be an exclusive Wii U service deal.
Those are two pretty huge bits of information, and if they are indeed true, that's great for those hoping the Wii U online features would be robust.
