IGN are reporting that a recent change in EA's privacy policy has pointed towards the upcoming Wii U console from Nintendo will require an Origin account to play any EA games online. Similar to the methods currently in place on PC for titles such as Battlefield 3 and Mass Effect 3, users would be required to sign up for an account in-order to access the multiplayer portion of their games.

The paragraph in question states that in order to play your games online, "your Nintendo account information will be provided to EA so that we can establish an Origin Account for you. You need an Origin Account to play EA’s titles online." The policy also states that no credit card or financial information will be shared when creating the account, however what is shared is "Mii information, email address, Nintendo Network ID, friend list, country, language and date of birth."

Currently there are only three EA titles that have been confirmed for the Wii U launch window; they are Mass Effect 3, FIFA 13 and Madden 13.

The Wii U will be launching in Australia on November 30.

This is not news, every EA game since the invention of tools has repuired an Origin account to play online. Ever before Origin existed, you needed an EA account. Who cares.
