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.

3DS is a 2 years old console you know... the first year of 3DS was dry too do you remember?

I mean, I agree with you, Wii U have a problem with its catalogue... but the aggressiveness level against Wii U is something unseen before.

Developers calling it crap, games ready to be released cancelled for no reason, game engines cancelled for "lack of processing power"... and 10 minutes later the same game engine is released for android phones!! (this is no joke, it's real)

Gimme a break man, the companies slamming Wii U got an agenda, they're not being honest about the product for some reason that We don't know.

Oh, I think the reason it's very clear: they think the product sucks. Also "being honest" and "agreeing with you" are not the same thing, FYI.
