I’m certain everyone here knows what Epic VP Mark Rein had to say at the IGN Live event from a while back. Now, the Nintendo hype man himself, Jim Merrick of NoE responded to Mr Rein’s harsh comments. Here’s what the man had to say:
“Mark has a very narrow section of the business. Epic builds middleware, theyâ€™re very technically savvy guys, but he doesnâ€™t have a Revolution controller, he doesnâ€™t have a dev kit, heâ€™s talking about something he knows nothing aboutâ€¦So if heâ€™d like to get a dev kit and really dig into it, then Iâ€™d be interested to hear what he has to say.“
This is a very smart way to retort by Nintendo. By saying this, Merrick both hits back and challenges him to back his up remark by developing for the system.
