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.

Until mario/zelda/metroid/donkey kong/animal crossing/smash brothers and their other franchises come to another platform, there is a market for it.
Nintendo's games are a hell of a lot better than EA's, IMO. They stay inventive, even if they keep reusing the same characters.
Nintendo moving to steam would be incredible, IMO.

Here's hoping this generation is their last for non-portable hardware, for the sake of getting their titles for the PC.
