    Is Wii U D00Med? Or are EA's buttocks sore? Only We, you, etc can decide!
    EA's Sports game engineer, Bob Summerhill, is not afraid to speak his opinion of the Nintendo Wii U. He trolls harder than the always on, Mr. Orth, on his Twitter.

    As a person who bought a Wii U close to launch, and then jumped ship I'm looking forward to seeing what E3 brings.

    I hate to put the cart before the horse here but someone might as well add this to the Golden Threads now as it's inevitable that this thread will spiral into a EA Hate fest. That or just lock this.

    Edit: Oh shit, it's not EOF'd yet.
    Seems like he will be losing a lot of respect, not that he had that to begin with.

    One of those companies has gaems and the other doesn't. :tpi:

    Did not detect trolling, just a thorough hardware analysis :P

    Oh, *whew* for a minute there I thought he was being serious on the internet! He said that the Wii U is weaker than the Xbox 360. Not true, it's weaker than the Gamecube and PS2.

    Who's that guy anyway? Because it's bad business for EA to badmouth Nintendo, he should probably get a warning from his bosses about that (well, and something must have happened because he already deleted the tweets, or at least I can't find them).

    Looks like we discovered Foxi's secret identity. :tpi:


    But seriously though, the WiiU is doomed.

    Yes, clearly a thorough hardware analysis:

    "The WiiU is crap."

    Oh.

    But maybe there's some thorough something here:

    "Nintendo are still operating like it’s 1990.They should have “done a Sega” and offered Mario/Zelda as PS4/Durango exclusives."

    Yep, thorough trolling.

    This guy is hopping aboard the "Hate Nintendo" train about 7-years too late--longer if your experience with game consoles extends back to the mid-90s.

    But... I don't like sports games... :angry:

    You're not an expert - he's an expert. He knows what he's talking about, he works in the business.

    I didn't know they were porting Doom to the Wii U Virtual Console. Isn't that what Doomed means?

    But according to Foxi4, it's justified and not trolling at all, remember?;) Marcan was lying about the Wii U CPU not being worse than the 360's. :lol:

    I get that you represent your company both in the workplace and elsewhere, but I think this sort of reporting is going to get out of hand.

    I'm sure Activision has a wonderful janitorial staff, but I can't say I'm terribly interested in hearing their thoughts on the PS4's hardware.

    Fuck who cares what this troll says? The Wii U is a cool console. It may not be as powerful as the 360 (or is it?) but it has huge potential with its Gamepad. Just give it more time. Besides, EA titles are crap anyway.
