EA on Wii U: Not a next-gen console

Written by Josiah Renaudin

During EA’s Jan. 30 investors call, the major publisher stated that Nintendo’s recently released Wii U is not quite a next-generation console.

While Nintendo has been marketing the dual-screen technology as the next big step for gaming, EA doesn’t believe that we’ve seen generation four quite yet.

Kotaku’s Jason Schreier was first to comment on the company’s statement.

The call also included the news of Insomniac’s Fuse being pushed to the first quarter of 2014, the Medal of Honor franchise being put to rest for a while, as well as news on EA’s earnings.
