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.

I was going to post a detailed story too, but you said almost exactly what I would have. My best friend got one for his three kids for Christmas and it's by far the most innovative console I've ever used. The controller/tablet concept alone is phenomenal.

...how can you SAY that??? It has none if the inventive EA titles like Madden 2008, Madden 2009. Madden 2010, Madden 2011, Madden 2012, Madden 2013 or even Madden 2059. Not to even mention FIFA 2006, 2007, 2008, 2009, 2010 etc etc etc etc ad infinitum.
Clearly you are mistaken.

Ha! :-)

Well considering that the Sega Dreamcast is and will remain my favorite console of all time, I suppose it makes sense that I like the Wii U so much. It's innovative and quirky, and once it inevitably drops in price I'll pick one up.
