im guranteeing that they'll do a poor port of andromeda to switch later on which will be inferior to other consoles and sell poorly like me3 on Wii u already lol

Still calling the PS4 Pro the Neo Maybe he doesn't know what the Switch is, they should have asked him about NX.
I wouldn't really read into this. I mean Bethesda can't even say Skyrim is coming to Switch and it's in the frekin trailer. Could be that they just can't say anything yet... Having said all of that, I really don't expect Andromeda to come to Switch anyway.
I think it'll be token support like it was with the Wii U, who knows we might get the Mass Effect Trilogy this time! (Saying that I'd probably buy the trilogy, I bought the special edition last time but it just didn't feel the same knowing I'd missed out on 2/3 of the series despite the graphic novel style choice menu) I'm just expecting the yearly sports games if anything.

I think its a bit too early to say. They could be just trolling or keeping it a secret till more NS details are revealed later.
Well you just have to think about Wii U and the reason it didn't really get much support to begin with. It wasn't because it was Nintendo but because to most devs it wasn't worth bringing their games to Wii U mainly because of the different architecture and lesser power coupled with the systems miserable sales.
We already know for a fact that Switch can handle UE4 no problem which is one of the most wildly used engines today. Also there is the fact it runs on Nvidia's own Tegra hardware and may end up using the Tegra X2 which is presumably more capable than an Xbox One which should make porting games far less of a headache. If it does run on Tegra X2 coupled with recent rumors that porting to Switch is a breeze then devs really have no excuse.
Also his comment seemed relatively vague to me he didn't outright say there would be no MEA on NS. I am gonna wait til the actual launch lineup is revealed

For now I'll take this as a case of him either being under NDA, but either way, this doesn't bode well. If Switch turns out exactly like WiiU and misses out many games like this, I will be quite discouraged in purchasing it, period.
I never buy Nintendo consoles just to play Nintendo games. I buy them to play both Nintendo AND third party games.
Favorite WiiU Games So Far: Xenoblade Chronicles X, The Legend of Zelda: The Wind Waker HD, The Cave, DuckTales Remastered, AC III, Resident Evil: Revelations, Bayonetta 1 & 2
Ea like other third parties will probably be very conservative in their support of switch until they see how their games sell on it.

Nintendo Switch: An amazing handheld, and crappy console all-in-one. ™
If production didn't start til 2014 then it's pretty understandable they would be too far along in production by the time they got a Switch dev kit. Plus there is the likelihood their manpower and resources are probably stretched a bit at the moment with the Xbox One, PS4, PC, and PS4 Pro versions

I think you are being somewhat pre mature. No Mass Effect Andromeda for Switch doesn't exactly rule out the prospects of future projects. The same can be said for Bethesda with Skyrim. Andromeda didn't really start development so 2014 so at this point its kinda late for them to be starting work on a Switch version
EA is all about MONEY! If they think something isn't going to be profitable, they either drop support for it or don't support it from the get go.
It looks to me as if EA is taking a "wait-n-see" approach. I think if the Switch were to take off like a rocket EA would be eager to hop onboard.
Say NBA 2K17 and Skyrim do come out on Switch (and damn wouldn't it be cool if those were launch titles) and sold like hotcakes, do you think EA would want to miss out on the potential sales for titles like Madden and Mass Effect? Especially if rumors of streamlined translation processes from PS4 to Switch are true?

I'm guessing we may see some of EA's smaller (relatively speaking) budget games like a Fifa, NFS, and their EA Originals

That statement probably means that there won't be a Switch version, but keep in mind that guy is only the game's producer, so overall it really isn't his call. But, as others here have pointed out, EA is probably taking a wait and see approach to the system, and we'll only get their real mainstay titles at first.
I hope it does. I think it's way too early to know if this will happen or not. After all, Mass Effect 3 was on Wii U so why not? This is another game that could definitely benefit from portability given all there is to do. Which reminds me, I really need to play all the ME games to catch up..
