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.

They need to sort the software out BADLY though.

YES! And provide an online store where only adults can buy digital stuff. That way all Nintendos worries about 'the children' can be taken away and you might get a steam light.
Also because PS4 will be a gamepc I pronounce them the winners of this console generation. Just being able to easily port to PS4 will make sure it will be flooded with games. If PS4 then makes it easy for indies to publish digitally to PS4 they will have a bigger hit than PS3+Wii.
Only Sony can make the PS4 flop.
