The game's industry has too much fun on April Fools' Day. I will painfully admit that after the Titanfall Optimus Prime trailer, I sifted through the XBL store before it dawned on me, "Oh, you sons of bitches."

It seems that EA had a little too much fun with the annual prank day with Tweets taking cheap shots at the Wii U:

"Good news, we have finally fixed and optimized our 'netcode'. Uses quantum entanglement for Zero Latency connections. Exclusively on #WiiU."
"Frostbite will power #HalfLife 3, coming out summer 2014! #WiiU exclusive."

"Frostbite now runs on the #WiiU since it is the most powerful Gen4 platform, our renderer is now optomized for Mario and Zelda."
These joke Tweets weren't even cleaver as they were mean, rubbing salt in the wound that is the lack of Frostbite 3 support on Nintendo's console.
I'd like to think that this is some sort of release after dodging being voted as the worst company in America.
