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.

Yes, media are idiots, everybody knows this so this EA guy should have known it too. Apparently he's an even bigger idiot.

He called the Wii U crap. A hardware platform EA needs to run their games on to make money, to feed this guy and others.

Well, lets just agree that it depends on the law what actions the company can legally take. Since this guy is in Canada I'm going to presume that he's safer than he would have been if he had been in the U.S.
