Games "At the end of a week in which Electronic Arts confirmed it wasn't developing a thing for the Wii U, one of the software engineers in EA Sports' Canada studio, in a series of since-deleted tweets, disparaged the console as 'crap' and suggested Nintendo should give up on hardware altogether. 'The Wii U is crap. Less powerful than an Xbox 360. Poor online/store. Weird tablet', tweeted Bob Summerwill, listed as a senior software engineer at EA Canada, in a reply to a tweet posting a link about EA's no-Wii U news. 'Nintendo are walking dead at this point'." The Wii U is turning into the 21st century's Virtual Boy.

I don't care about what an EA employee or commercial media says... all the extremely negative comments about Wii U hardware is total bullshit. Nonsense biased lies. I just realised that when I actually tried a Wii U at my best friend house.

Let me tell you this: Wii U is an _amazing_ piece of hardware.

At hardware level Wii U is great, you got PS3-like performance in an small, silent and sleek box that let's you stream the games to the gamepad and play them remotely lying in your bed or in the bathroom.

I'm a geek like everybody else here in OSNews and believe me: I was completely amazed by the streaming technology that the gamepad uses. It's perfect, no lag, no sound glitches, instant responsiveness, works like a swiss clock. Incredible. Miles ahead of AirPlay, DNLA or any other streaming technology that I tried before.

I had a lot of concerns about Wii U just like everybody else... until I actually tried one. It rocks and It rocks hard and you must give it a try. I hope that Nintendo fix the lack of games. That's the only REAL problem that this (six month old) console got.
