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?

The butthurt is great in the gaming industry.

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.
