Last week, EA spokesperson Jeff Brown’s told the press, “we have no games in development for the Wii U currently.” But at the Stifel Nicolaus 2013 Internet, Media and Communications Conference, EA CFO Blake Jorgensen spoke up to refute Brown’s statment.
According to Jorgensen, EA does have projects in development for the Wii U, but just not as many as for the PS4 or Xbox One. No titles were specifically mentioned, but with Madden and FIFA both out of the picture, it’s anyone’s guess as to what they’re working on.

The HD port of Resident Evil Revelations hits North America today and Capcom already has an update out for the game.
The update adds support for www.residentevil.net, which keeps track of your progress in the main campaign and Raid Mode. Additional features include: setting up “buddies” in-game, using accumulated points to buy items that can be transferred over to the game and keeping track of special game-related events.
As a gift for registering with the site, Capcom is giving away a free gun to use in Raid Mode. Once you’re account is set up, you can pick up another Raid Mode gun from Capcom. Just enter the code “parker” on the site. But you should hurry because the code expires tomorrow, May 22 at 10 a.m. PST.
