Weekend Discussion: EA Now Bashing Sony


We all know that Electronic Arts has a Love/Hate relationship with Nintendo.  Well, they love to hate them.  However, they have been pretty quiet on the Nintendo front lately.  However, yesterday they released this little gem aimed at Sony:

“Sony has released a firmware update for the PlayStation 4 that is required for many features on the console. However, this update also results in stability issues while playing games on the system. This affects all games on the PS4, including EA titles, causing crashing/freezing and non-responsive connections between the player’s console and their TV Screen.”

“Unfortunately since it’s an issue with Sony’s firmware, it requires a new update to fix it. Sony is working to resolve the issue as quickly as they can. They will update their System Update page as new versions are made available, and we will keep this page updated as we find out more.”

Soon after, they retracted the statement with no real reason as to why.  While searching the comments of many message boards, there were confirmations on games such as Knack as well as most released EA games.  Many fans were openly bad mouthing the issues, while others just shrugged it off to early adopters being the guinea pigs.

Do you feel that the bugs that are found during the launch of both the PS4 and Xbox One will help the sales of Nintendo’s Wii U?
