According to a report from GenGame on Friday, an unnamed Activision employee had apparently spoken some not so flattering words about Nintendo's consumers to indie developer Calvin Hall.
"Activision didn’t expect much from Wii U sales of 'Black Ops 2,' but they sure didn’t expect it to be that abysmal.
"Activision gave Wii U owners the best version of 'Blops 2' with Off TV features, and Nintendo fans didn’t support it. It’s easy for Nintendo fans to trash publishers for not giving them ports, but publishers have wisened up.
"They realize Nintendo fans are all talk.
"Nintendo fans are vocal with their mouths, but when it’s time to open their wallets, they’ll spend that $60 on 'New Super Mario Bros' instead.
"There’s just no enthusiasm for it.
"The only reason publishers are still going to bring games to Wii U is because they don’t want to damage their relationship with Nintendo," the unnamed person said.
Those are some pretty strong words to direct them at consumers, are they not?
