"Trouble" In Nintendo's Future

So. I just stumbled upon this. Thought it kinda deserved a spot here on the forum:
Quote:
"The Wii U is crap. Less powerful than an Xbox 360. Poor online/store. Weird tablet," tweeted Bob Summerwill, listed as a senior software engineer at EA Canada, in a reply to a tweet posting a link about EA's no-Wii U news. "Nintendo are walking dead at this point."

Though the tweets, made early yesterday morning, have since been deleted, screenshots of them mushroomed across multiple sites, most prominently on NeoGAF.

Summerwill didn't let up after that first tweet. "Nintendo are still operating like it's 1990," he goes on, saying it should have gotten out of the hardware business and made its Mario and Legend of Zelda franchises exclusives on either the PlayStation 4 or next Xbox....Summerwill's comments recall another Twitter flap not long ago; in early April, Adam Orth, then a creative director for Microsoft, said that those with reservations about a console with an always-on requirement should just "deal with it." Microsoft later apologized for the remarks, and Orth is said to be no longer with the company.
So basically, the lack of Wii U hype's causing other companies to suggest that Nintendo should just get outta the hardware market while they can. And according to the rest of this article, it's actually possible. I mean I knew that Wii U wasn't making as big a sales as the Wii, but is that factor really such a heavy blow that it could determine the future of Nintendo? Would any of you guys continue playing Mario titles if they were exclusive to the PS4? Thoughts, opinions, go.

Isn't this a bit stubborn? Mario is Mario. If it was on another console, it'd still be developed by Nintendo. The game doesn't change, just the controller. Which has always been the case for the past 20+ years.

Anyway, the 3DS should finance a Wii U flop if it does occur. As for the power thing, whether it's true or not, who cares? Oh wait, a bunch of petty gamers who only care about power do. It's people like this guy who make up crap and make moronic ignorant idiots believe the garbage. That's why nobody wants a Wii U, because everyone is blind and misinformed about it.

Nintendo screwed up in my opinion, by going cheap with the internal guts on the Wii.

I think if they manage to release popular titled games on the Wii U then the console should sell more. who wants wants a console with only a few games out for it?

Honestly, as far as this guy's statements go and the lack of EA support, you turn around and have both Ubisoft confirming their support for Wii U, going so far as to say Nintendo will help right the ship. I thought I've seen blips of Bobby Kotick from Activision stating his company's support for Nintendo, but I may have read wrong.

Regardless, Nintendo still needs to play its cards right this year to turn it all around. If they slip up it's not going to be an easy recovery. Granted at the moment they're sitting pretty with the 3DS, but misstepping too far with things and we'll see Mario on the PS4.

Must be Adam Orth's friend

Besides he works for EA Sports, so it's not like he has much rlevance in my book at least

Also I'm getting sick of these "Power" comments and Nintendoomed talk

Well, the GameCube was a commercial flop and Nintendo survived that.
I'm sure once they get the next main Mario game on the Wii U and Smash Wii U and Zelda Wii U it will pick up steam.

They're probably waiting until the PS4 and Xbox 720 launch before they bring out the big guns.

At the moment Nintendo isn't in a precarious spot with multiplat ports per se, but if PS4 and Infinity come out powerful than Wii U, then it really is going to be the Wii all over again. I have to brush up in the specs rumored for the other two, because they may be just a bit better than Wii U but by a slim margin.
