EA Sports Senior Software Engineer and Architect Bob Summerwill launched into a rather interesting little diatribe against Nintendo and the Wii U today on his Twitter account, going so far as to call the console “crap”.

This is turning nasty.

imo this is not professional behavior.

The Wii U has been performing very poorly but Nintendo aren't walking dead.

Think we'll see another turn-around with a public apology this time?

Taking bets I say in the next 24 hours he will claim his twitter account was hacked or something. But if not then he is allowed a opinion. He is most likely going to get some stick for the next few days but he shouldn't. If that is his opinion on the Wii U then people should accept it.

IIRC, that tweet was taken down.

As a dev of blargSNES, just stop with the claims that o3DS can emulate SNES games accurately @ 60fps. It cannot.

It's atleast the second all out assault on Wii-U today. The other by Game Industry.

What an idiot. It's already been proven Wii U is stronger than any last gen console.
The worst part is that this will be taken as fact by people as stupid as him.

Except he's not alone in that sentiment among developers. More than anything, the stacking effect of these stories is troubling.

Yes, he is allowed to have an opinion. But if he is going to voice his opinion, he should be prepared to face any backlash. Honestly, I'd expect these kind of remarks from someone inexperienced in the professional world, not someone who says "Games industry veteran with shipped AAA titles across three generations of console hardware" on his LinkedIn page.

Never thought I'd love the pink/white 3DS XL ♥

Ya, it's trouble for the people making comments in the OP.
I wouldn't be surprised if this guy gets fired for such a false and idiotic remark.
It's becoming apparent that some in the industry have hardly any idea what a new generation means.

It is not a valid opinion if it is technically wrong.
i.e. This guy thinks a red car is blue.
Can anyone explain to me how someone thinks a car is blue when it's red? This is a serious question.

Outside of the 360 comparison, I dont have a problem with what he said.
Its not like Wii Us are flying off the shelves these days.

Four more months until Bayonetta 2.

Well that's not very nice. Someone should put this guy in a timeout and teach him a lesson.

Go, unprecended partership!

The funny thing is, is that Wii U has both the mobile content market, and is part of EA's GEN4(gen 8).
This guy doesn't know the difference between left and right. These comments are proof of that.

Yeah, but nobody realistically cares, as that definition doesn't sell systems.
