GameTaffy Would Like to Apologize to David Jaffe
Posted by Ben Davis
After publishing an admittedly poorly-titled editorial about David Jaffe and listening to the anger of many Twisted Metal fans, I would like to apologize for comments made about David Jaffe, Sony, and Twisted Metal.
GameTaffy.com is strongly opposed to Online Passes in any shape or form, as they are a way to fight piracy by attacking those who are not pirates. At the writing of the article, my intention was to draw attention to another situation where gamers are punished for trying to save money.
However, calling David Jaffe a sell-out creator was wrong. As a fan of God of War, I know the creative genius of Jaffe. His job is to make games that are awesome and enjoyable. Sony’s job is to be sure to follow their policy for any game they publish. If Sony wants an Online Pass, they are the wrongdoers, not Jaffe.
I never contacted Jaffe before writing and publishing my editorial. In the future, I will contact the subject of the author to get all sides of a story and avoid opinionated claims.
GameTaffy.com firmly stands behind its opinion that Online Passes are criminal and will continue to report and encourage discussion about this issue. However, the Online Pass is something created by and for the benefit of publishers. Calling developers sell outs for following orders is wrong, and I accept that.
We hope that Jaffe and his fans will forgive us, and I hope that we can get past this issue in the future.
