Speaking on an investor call to discuss the company's Q3 financials, Electronic Arts CEO John Riccitiello hinted that Nintendo's just released Wii U is not the beginning of the 'next generation'...

However, according to him, you shouldn't "never count Nintendo out"...

“Never count Nintendo out. They’ve got some of the best IP in the game industry. When their marquee titles show up, that’s when you usually see the bounce. I deeply respect the achievements they’ve had over the last several years. And as I said, you never really count them out.”

“Having said that, I wouldn’t say that we see a correlation between the results that Nintendo has shown with their console debut of the Wii U and what we see coming. We see a pretty sharp distinction, and unfortunately I’m unable to go any further than that.

Ours is an industry where a lot of devices come in and represent themselves as the next generation, or the next generation after that. In many ways we would argue that the what we’re describing as “gen 4″ is yet to come. It’s that that we’re excited about, and that’s what we’re investing in. And frankly, we’ve been quite consistent with that for some time, while recognizing the frustration our inability to articulate precisely why causes for you.”

He also addressed Valve's Steam Box and said that he really doesn't know too much about the gaming platform, but said he is a fan of Valve's Gabe Newell...

"I am squarely in the Gabe Newell fan club," Riccitiello said, before stating that Valve "really hasn't put enough information out there to suggest whether or not they've got the wherewithal to compete in console."

"Based on what they've said so far it could be anything from a cool niche product that appeals to, you know, Gabe and his friends and people like me, to a product that actually has the shoulders to help move our industry forward into what we're describing as 'gen 4,'" he explained.

So, what do you think?
