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.

Gamers calls SimCity 2013 'crap'

The series' best was the SNES SimCity version. Where the series should have ended.

But see, EA is king of beating a dead horse until every last drop of milk is extracted. That is their strategy, and sadly, it works. People keep buying the same junk over and over, long after it had its decline.
