Developer apologizes to Wii

Maxis developer Chris Hecker(currently working on Spore) went on a little rant at the GDC this year. Some of his choice statements were "It's not clear to me that Nintendo gives a shit about games as an art form.", "[Nintendo needs to] make a console that doesn't suck ass." and the inflammatory "The Wii is a piece of shit!"

Now he is taking it all back and apologizing for his comments. Now he says "I do not think the Wii is a piece of shit. Nintendo needs to be applauded for trying to interface on the controller front, the user interface front, on making games accessible, on making a console that you don't need to mortgage your house to afford."

Way to think before you speak(especially at a podium with a microphone), Chris.
