Jim Merrick Calls Out Mark Rein

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, they’re very technically savvy guys, but he doesn’t have a Revolution controller, he doesn’t have a dev kit, he’s talking about something he knows nothing about…So if he’d like to get a dev kit and really dig into it, then I’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.
