Jaffe slams Fischer over Wii storage comments

By Patrick Garratt, Friday, 13 June 2008 09:36 GMT

David Jaffe loves Nintendo. But he doesn’t love Laurent Fischer, especially after the Nintendo marketeer claimed the only people that cared about Wii storage were “geeks and otaku”. The God of War creator tells us so on his blog.

“This statement, especially coming from a marketing person, reeks of one of two things:

“A – Arrogance at a level that should make Nintendo – if this statement reflects the core of the company – very ashamed.

“B – A marketing person who has no real clue about games and thinks she’s being cute and coy by dissing the ‘geeks’ cause she thinks the mainstream loves them now. If this is the case, she really needs someone to sit her down and explain to her which side her fucking toast has been buttered on for years and will eventually get back to being buttered on.”

Laurent’s a man, David, but we get the sentiment.

Thanks, GoNintendo.
