Electronic Arts has claimed that the next generation of gaming “is yet to come”, meaning that the Wii U is a generation behind, like they believed the Wii to be. They did say to “never count Nintendo out”, but:
…I wouldn’t say that we see much correlation between the results that Nintendo have just shown with the console debut of the Wii U and what we see coming. We see a pretty sharp distinction and unfortunately I’m unable to go any further than that.
There’s been a lot of leaks as of late with regards to the PS4 and the new Xbox, so I don’t think it’ll be long just how sharp these distinctions actually are.
