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.

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.


If I want to play games in my bed or on the crapper, I already have a device to do that with. It's called a 3DS. And unlike the Wii U, it actually has games I want to play. Consoles are about playing games ON A f--kING TV. That's why they're called consoles, not tablets ;)

And yes, I have played a Wii U tablet game. Raymand Legends at Best Buy, and it was terrible.
