1: Someone on Twitter reporting an investor call isn't confirmation that they actually said that as evidenced by the Bioshock Infinite incident

2: WTF is this "Gen4"? That was the SNES/Genesis

3: If EA thinks there are only four gens they are slow in the head


4. Damage control

"What we're describing as Gen 4 has yet to come".

Electronic Arts has been making games since the Atari 2600 days. I really want to know what they define the generations as.

EA ruins everything they touch anyway so its probably for the better.

Back to 16bit we go according to EA.

Man I hope that's a misquote or this is fake.

Edit: This quote is inaccurate.

Ah, here's the full quote.
Q: Wii U you're not pursing aggressively. What does this say about consumers adopting next-generation consoles in the future?
A: Never count Nintendo out. They have great IP. You will see a bounce when they bring these IPs out. We see no correlation between Wii U sales and what we expect from other next-gen consoles, can't talk a lot about that though. What we describe as "Gen 4" is yet to come. We're excited and investing in it.


They said "other next-gen consoles." Which means they consider the Wii U next-gen. Complete and utter news fail.
"Gen 4" is probably referring to their titles or something, like "Gen 4" of Battlefield or MOH.

Fanboys are in full damage control. Ha


Ea is making games for Wii U? Yeah let's make 100 topics proving trolls wrong.


Ea is not making games? Yeah they are horrible anyway.

The only 3 party games that sell on Nintendo consoles are ones that make you dance.

Aye, there's the rub. Thanks for posting a full context and not butchering the quote.
