    Ok first let's show the source. A guy working on a game was bashing Nintendo. No big deal? Well he really went over board. Calling the Wii a piece of (Fill In Blank Here).

    Now I said he'd take a pay cut for saying that. I think I was right. Because now he says he's sorry. If you're going make an opinion about something, make sure it's got some fact behind it, and make sure you truley stand by those comments. Don't play the contradicting politician seeking attention.

    Well at least he apologised, more than alot of people would after saying something like that. Like I don't hear any sony PR guys, saying 'oh sorry we were wrong about how many ps3s we think we have sold'

    I'm pretty sure his boss just yelled at him and shoved him up to the podium. >_>

    So.... this was all a "joke" that was poorly executed?:l It's good that he apologized but that guy just put his foot in his mouth. I must have missed the punch-line or something...

    "slamming the system for its lack of power and Nintendo for only making fun games and not artistic ones"
    HAHA!
    That's a good one - because photo-realism always means artistic games right?

    :rolleyes:

    Yeah, I like to think that he was paid/threatened to apologize.

    EA said they are backing the Wii all the way. EA doesn't want to look two face specially if Nintendo is leading the pack for console sales. He was told to say he was sorry or else :D I bet you he is in the dog house right now.

    This stuff is common every year. They usually talk about worker rights, or coming up with new concepts. The swearing is heavy, and they let loose. Of coarse they often have good suggestions. This guy's just trying to be a poser. He may still get fired. EA doesn't have a sense of humor.
