When did DICE become an authority on these matters?

They make BF3. Which is a big graphical intense game on PC.

Wait, so they go:

Yeah I'm calling bull. If the 3DS can do well on it's own the Wii U will be just fine. It's not even like with the 7 years developers had that we even have perfect games on the 360 or PS3.

Wii lived for 6 years and I'm gonna give the Wii U about the same 5-6 years (might even be less).

To be fair that dude is talking just about what he hears and read from other people he trust, he has no idea or is doing anything with the console, so he thinks the life cycle is gonna be shorter...

Shorter than the Wii? That lasted 6 years with the PS3 and Xbox? I donīt think so
