Gen 4 is likely a reference to Sony. This will be their 4th generation of consoles and to be fair they are the ones who are all about the "power leap". Good to know who EA supports.


That makes no sense. Microsoft will be in their 3rd gen and Nintendo, their 7th. Not only that, but Nintendo was the one pushing for power for 5 generations and MS started after that too with the PS3 being the only powerhouse Sony has made.


Sony is in their fourth, and as far as the power bit, it only means current. Nintendo these days doesn't spew "power" this and that, and while MS keeps up with Sony for the most part, their overall tagline has not been "power" either. Only Sony as of recent cares about saying that. This generation has gone on long enough for most people to accept it as the state of things and ignore the past. Current Sony boasts "power" and EA has apparently taken current Sony's mindset as their model.

By saying gen 4, it is obvious EA doesn't count anything from Nintendo's early days, and they aren't talking about MS as this is only their 3rd console coming. Sony is the one at 4.


So you think they are saying "The Wii U is next gen but Sony's new console is out yet"? That still doesn't make any sense.

It's a pretty accurate statement. The WiiU is current gen.

Fanboys - we understand that ea doesn't like the Wii U.


So instead of coming to terms we are going to pretend we don't understand what 4th gen means. Ha


I think most people actually do know what 4th gen means.

I do not like Nintendo games. Zelda is a Nintendo game. 3DDGH is not a Nintendo game. Thus, it is entirely logical that I like 3DDGH and not Zelda. -Xtaceous

No, they are saying the PS4 will be gen 4 (hence the "gen 4 hasn't started yet") and that the Wii-U isn't strong enough to be considered in the same generation as that. They are calling the Wii-U current gen.

But it isn't "gen 4" it's gen 8

Except they clearly group it with "next gen"

And it is Gen 8 now. 4 has long since passed.

How the hell do you go from an unprecedented partnership to that?

Geez that company needs to be taken down a peg, one obviously biased deal doesn't go their way and they now will spend an entire gen b******* about it. People give Activision and Ubisoft crap but EA remains the outright worst of the three.

Ha all the fanboys are repeating themselves.


Summary- Ea thinks the Wii U is garbage but doesn't want to say it because they still want to make games like ea playground 2, 3 and 4.
