I am a PS3 owner and someday hope to be a PS4 owner, yet I am not at all dissatisfied with my choice to delay purchase, solely based on the current PS4 library.

EA Apologizes for “Unacceptable” and “Stupid” April Fools Joke Leveled at Nintendo

Posted on Wednesday, April 2 @ 04:13:41 Eastern by Alex_Osborn

In celebration of April Fools' Day, the folks over at DICE posted a joke on Twitter that wasn't afraid to make light of the fact that Electronic Arts has essentially abandoned Nintendo's tablet-centric gaming console.

The string of Tweets, which have since been pulled, read: 

Frostbite now runs on #WiiU since it is the most powerful Gen4 platform. Our renderer is now optimised for Mario and Zelda.

Frostbite will power #HalfLife3, coming out summer 2014!
#WiiU exclusive.

Good news, we have finally fixed and optimised our 'netcode'. Uses quantum entanglement for Zero Latency connections. Exclusively on #WiiU.

EA's Peter Moore then took to Twitter to offer a formal apology for the joke, calling it "stupid" and "unacceptable." 
 

You can bet that DICE's joke caused quite a stir among the Nintendo faithful, forcing Electronic Arts to respond in the way it did.

You see? This is why I dread April Fools each and every year. Sure, you may find a few laughs here and there, but it's simply not worth the drama it stirs up.
