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.

The WiiU specs are not spectacular, but they are certainly better than the Xbox 360 - better CPU & GPU plus HDMI. My original 360 lacks HDMI and can only run component.


Totally agree. Did you see the size and energy consumption of the thing? It's pretty amazing taking into account PS3's and 360's (even the recent "slim" releases are huge).

Another thing that surprised me is that You can play with Wii U for hours and it never gets hot. I think it's even colder than the original Wii.

I know that nobody but me cares about these things on a console but I think these details talks about the quality of a product and how well it's designed and made. Not a crappy product at all.
