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.

No, he can't. Just look at the headline: EA Sports developer calls Wii U 'crap'.

It doesn't say "Someone on Twitter calls Wii U crap", because then no one would care. Even though he was just a someone on Twitter saying that it turned out he's an EA employee and that's why he made the headlines, he made his employer look bad.

We all know he won't change his opinion the moment his shift starts. The people at Nintendo won't say, "Ah, he said it in his spare time, that's okay, we don't mind, people will understand, they won't think EA thinks the Wii U is crap".
