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.

But if you say something publicly that hurts your company's reputation or bottom line, they have the right to fire you. That's just how the corporate world works.


I'm glad it doesn't work that way here in Finland. Here you are allowed to have an opinion and voice it, you only get sanctions if you portray your opinion as official company stance.
