    EA have shown their devotion to developing exclusive Wii titles by forming a studio specifically for Wii development.

    Today, EA have announced that it has bought Headgate Studios, the developer of the last six PC installments in the Tiger Woods PGA Tour franchise and Madden NFL 07. Renamed EA Salt Lake will now "focus on development for the Nintendo Wii."

    No specific titles were mentioned in this announced although EA is currently bringing Need for Speed Carbon, Harry Potter and the Order of the Phoenix, SSX, The Godfather, and the exclusive Sims title to the Wii.

    It's good to see more and more developers whole heartedly backing the Wii.

    SSX and The Godfather should be great additions, and i hope they can really make the most of the controllers. The Godfather should be pretty cool, if EA take the root I'm imagining.

    This is great, they Wii is perfect for sport games, and EA is the perfect match for the Wii. I can't wait til they come out with Fight Night, NHL, NBA, and Tiger Woods.

    I agree, I know EA is mostly into sport type games, but I hope they release other types as well. I'm not the biggest sport fanatic in the world. Regardless of what I said, I also think its awesome there is now a studio dedicated just for the Wii, hopefully more companies will follow this.

    Talkin bout ES, I hope they'll also bring Brunout on the Wii, I'm no racing fan but takedowns rock !! So imagine with the motion control ;)

    I'm also a Pro Evo kinda person (more winning Eleven actually, JOHN KABIRA RULES: we want japanese comments available on Euro version:) and read on cvg.com that Seabass, the creator of the series his supervising the Wii project himself... they also said he found a gameplay already, so we just have to wait till the release date comes out ;)

    Oh yeah, EA has the Marvel Nemesis 2 on the way... bring it on !
