I would like to address the comments made by Chris Heckler at the GDC yesterday in regards to the Wii.
On the console itself:
"The Wii is a piece of sh*t!"
On the power of the console:
"I have uncovered the secret to Wii manufacturing. The way you manufacture a Wii is you take two GameCubes and some duct tape,"
On whether Nintendo treat games as an art form:
"Number one: recognise and push games as a serious art form. Number two: make a console that doesn't suck ass."
I could go on and on with a long drawn out response, referring to the quality of the console itself and citing the likes of Wind Waker and Electroplankton in regard to the “art form” argument, but I’m not.
It’s frankly now worth responding to such an ill-informed, attention seeking, arrogant prat.
