EA Not Pleased with DICE's April Fool's Jokes Aimed at Nintendo
Filed under: EA, NINTENDO, DICE

In an attempt to be funny, DICE posted a few April Fool's joke tweets in regards to Nintendo's Wii U. The tweets have since been pulled due to the backlash, but here is what they originally said:

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.

I only wish that Nintendo had taken Kotaku's suggestion to post a similar April Fool's joke in regards to Battlefield 4 finally working.

EA's Peter Moore was less than thrilled about the jabs.


Several other gaming jokes were quite humorous yesterday, such as the BioWare store announcing a Garrus body pillow, Gunnar Optiks advertising for holovision glasses, and my favorite, Phil Fish announcing he's out of retirement.

Or is that last one really a joke?

Un Om Bun: I got the same impression too, over the years.

Hmmm... Not a single thing on there believable, and one that might break the laws of physics. None of it insulting that I can see. So, were they pissed off because they believed it?

Honestly, this is a genius April Fools tweet. It's genius because there are truly thousands upon thousands of Nintendo fanboys that would take this statement as being entirely logical.

Are you mad?

Why do you think I'm here?
Hell naaw, man!
Frankly, I need a hat.
Cut the crap and let's talk elf-alligator biscuits and Tinker Belle’s mortgage payment.
