EA Senior Engineer: 'The Wii U Is Crap'
by Colin Moriarty MAY 17, 2013
Twitter can be an interesting place to voice your opinions, and EA’s Bob Summerwill – a Senior Software Engineer and Architect – has sounded-off there with his thoughts about Nintendo’s struggling Wii U console. His comments, of course, follow EA's admission that it has no Wii U games in development.
Update: We originally had hard links to Summerwill's Tweets here so you can read them in the context of the greater conversation. However, these Tweets have since been deleted, breaking the links. You can still see his Twitter account (sans scrubbed Tweets) here, and screen caps of all of the Tweets in question are below.
According to Summerwill’s LinkedIn page, he’s worked at Electronic Arts since January of 1999, and has previous experience at Psygnosis, which was later purchased by Sony, turned into Sony Liverpool, and subsequently shut down.
We’ve reached out to EA concerning Summerwill’s comments and will update when we hear back.
