Service Google Stadia it certainly received a lukewarm reception when it launched last November. Since then, the tech giant has revealed more than 120 games on the platform by 2020.

Now, to achieve this, IT’S AT announced a partnership with Google to bring Star Wars Jedi: Fallen Order, Madden NFL, FIFA and more to the service later this year.

This new partnership has been heavily criticized by fans of Nintendo on social media. Basically, gamers believe EA wants to support Google’s platform more than Switch.

Google is obviously eager to bring more titles to its new platform, so the giant’s move isn’t exactly a surprise, while EA’s has made many turn up their noses:

When you support Google Stadia way more than the #NintendoSwitch it’s clear you have your priorities wrong.

EA doesn’t make sense. https://t.co/OtfIO5vS5z

It is funny though that EA is willing to support Stadia, which I’m not even sure has 1 million subscriptions yet vs. Switch which has sold over 50 million units.

EA really looked at Nintendo making millions off of Switch and Animal Crossing and thought “Let’s throw our weight behind Stadia instead …” # FizzVsGaming

Somehow Madden is going to end up on Stadia before Switch. EA is weird.

So EA won? T bring games over to Switch, but they have no problem bringing them to Stadia. Yeah OK. pic.twitter.com/RNrPrtRJhw

I’m sure it’s easier to port their games to Stadia than switch. If they wanted to port to switch they’d probably have to outsource the ports to other developers like CDPR did with The Witcher. EA games haven’t sold well on the last few Nintendo consoles anyway so why bother?

EA doesn’t see more profit on Stadia than Switch, they see less work and a fat check from Google. https://t.co/E1ExC3XyjI

It’s probably much faster to port to Stadia than Switch. ????

As a Switch owner, there’s 0% chance I’d buy it on Switch. I think I’m not in the minority here, EA knows this too

While the relationship between EA and Nintendo hasn’t been great this generation, the publisher has shown some support for the Switch recently as well, announcing Burnout Paradise Remastered coming later this year on the hybrid.

What do you think?
