Spore Developer Chris Hecker Apologizes For Calling the Wii a “Piece of Sh*t”
“I don’t know who has read the internet, yesterday. In a [unintelligible] panel I said a bunch of things. I was trying to be thought provoking and entertaining and fun and a lot of the stuff went too far over the top—on the entertaining and fun side, so that it was no longer thought provoking, just inflammatory. And in the process I hurt a bunch of people I care about. And so, I want to apologize now.
When I’m on stage, I’m me. I’m talking talk from me. From me. I’m not representing EA or Maxis.
I want to make two things perfectly clear.
I do not think the Wii is a piece of shit. Nintendo needs to be applauded for trying to interface on the controller front, the user interface front, on making games accessible, on making a console that you don’t need to mortgage your house to afford.
Secondly, it’s totally obvious—and I’m sorry that I implied otherwise—that everyone at Nintendo is passionate at making great games. Some of the games give me hope that we will be seen as an art form on par with movies and books.”
EA kicked his ass
go put your self on a high shelf out of reach of children along with mark rain as you both talk total bollox 2 gamecubes stuck togeter with tape hmmmmmmmm considering wiis build qoality and alround lastabillity kills the 360 with its reports of failing machines and lets not mention the ps2 OFFICIALLY THE MOST RETURNED AND COMPLAINED ABOUT PRODUCT ON THE FACE OF THIS EARTH FACT

lol I knew that guy would get grilled by his bosses. He’s probably performing sexual favors on them just so he doesn’t get fired. On the other hand, he is probably getting two gamecubes that are duct taped together twisted up his ass.
The Wii is changing things!
In 2007 & 2008 the Wii is going to be very lucrative for 3rd party publishers. EA NEEDS NINTENDO!!!
Wake up Lucas Arts and smell the coffee, it tastes good.
I for one did not buy the Wii for graphics, I want an emmersive gameplay experience and to be able to have a blast playing with my kids and friends at my house on my 42″ LCD. Online play will come sooner or later and then I will have to get hooked up to it.
Sony & Microsoft both have impressive consoles but they and the games are overpriced for us!
THIS GUY’S WORDS MAKE ME WANT TO PUMP MY DICK TO THE POINT OF EJACULATION!
