Says the creator of the Online Pass.


It's more funny because you would think EA would attempt to port games to the Wii U WITH online passes and DLC.


Nintendo doesn't allow that crap.

I stopped caring about EA a while ago.

"We see no correlation between Wii U sales and what we expect from other next-gen consoles"

This is them saying it's the same as the other "next gen" consoles. This is from the full quote. They never said "it isn't next gen," that was the reporter adding their own spin to it. And a generation by definition is based on time. It does not, nor ever will, work the way you've described. We are in Generation 8 now with the 3DS, Vita, and Wii U. Nintendo has participated in 7 generations with a home console. Even if you did argue the "current console war" this would inevitably be the 3rd gen of the war given that Microsoft is the newest entry. If you want to argue that "Microsoft was late" then Sony would be too as Nintendo was already here making it Gen7. Your entire argument is invalid.


"What we're describing as gen four has yet to come." - That is the quote from EA in the article.

Also, stop applying your own biases to this. It doesn't matter that you include the NES or SNES into generations. This is about EA's perspective, not yours. EA said 4. It doesn't matter if Nintendo has 8. It doesn't matter that MS has 3. EA only considers the upcoming one to be the fourth, and this is the fourth in the current "war".

EA considers the fourth gen to upcoming and does not consider the Wii-U to be part of it.

In that case, the entire article is irrelevant and has nothing to do with the Wii U. This is off-topic.

In other news....the rest of the world continues to not give a **** what a bunch of people on an internet message board think is or isn't current gen.

Shocking development, folks!

(Seriously guys...this is how you're spending your time today? How about just playing your system of choice instead of acting like asses to each other? Or is arguing semantics what passes for fun these days?)

Gen 4? I believe they are counting the generations by PlayStation consoles. >_>... That says it all...

So now EA is good because they're not making games on Wii U?
