Origin will be mandatory for online play for EA games on the Wii U

EA extending their online policy to the Wii U

It has emerged that EA games on the Wii U will require an Origin account for online play.

Newly uncovered privacy policy documents seem to indicate that Nintendo will pass Nintendo Network account details over to EA to establish an Origin account for Wii U users wanting to play EA games online.

The information to be passed over includes email addresses, Nintendo Network Ids, friends lists, country, language, date of birth and Mii information.

This is not a new concept though as EA already has similar agreements covering the PSN and Xbox Live.

Thanks GameSpot.
