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.

Seriously, businesses should not let their employees post things like this. I hope this guy was quickly fired.


Fortunately for everyone, most of us don't live in corporate fascist states and corporations have no legal means of preventing people from exercising their right to free speech.

Well, I did say "most of us", not "all of us" but maybe I should have said "some of us".
