    Aaaaand another Twitter incident, from none other than an EA employee ... and a high-profile one, at that: Bob Summerwill Senior SE and Architect, EA Sports. The tweets have been deleted since then, but you have gems such as "Gen 4" (gaming history began with the PlayStation apparently):

    The WiiU is crap.Less powerful than an XBOX360.Poor online/store.Weird tablet.Nintendo are walking dead at this point.
    Nintendo are still operating like it's 1990.They should have "done a Sega" and offered Mario/Zelda as PS4/Durango exclusives.
    Instead they make this awful console, and this ... nintendo.com/wiiu/downloads….Just stop it!Just make great games!
    It is an utterly intentional decision to focus our resources on markets which actually matter ... like mobile, and Gen4.
    One more :-). Nintendo platforms have always been very poor revenue-wise for third parties.Only Mario and Zelda make money.
    We're stuck with first-party stores on most platforms anyway.What's the alternative on PC?Paying MS or Valve?

    .... Nintendo is DOOOOOOOMED
