EA’s Bob Summerwill criticizes the Wii U

E

lectronic Art’s senior engineer Bob Summerwill has tweeted today his strong and honest opinions on the Wii U’s current struggle and the viability for third parties. EA recently said that they have no games in development for the Wii U. The tweets have been deleted, but IGN managed to grab screen caps of all of them for everyone’s viewing pleasure.

Here are the tweets from Bob Summerwill.

Tweet #1

“The WiiU is crap. Less powerful than an XBOX360. Poor online/store. Weird tablet. Nintendo are walking dead at this point.”

Tweet #2

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

Tweet #3

“Instead they make this awful console, and this…nintendo.com/wii/udownloads…. Just stop it! Just make great games!”

Tweet #4

“It is an utterly intentional decision to focus our resource on markets which actually matter… like mobile, and Gen4.”

Tweet #5

“One more : -). Nintendo platforms have always been very poor revenue-wise for third parties. Only Mario and Zelda make money.”

These statements were pretty harsh, and I am not surprised that these tweets have been taken down. It will be  interesting to see if Nintendo fires back with some sort of defensive statement. Let us know what you think of this whole situation in the comments below.
