Former Epic Games designer Cliff Bleszinski has been on something of a Twitter crusade lately, stating that the used games and AAA markets cannot co-exist while big budget games cost so much to make. Bleszinski has now suggested that Sony does have anti-used measures up its sleeve, and is using outrage over Microsoft’s Xbox One policies as a free PR tactic.

In a lengthy personal blog post defending Dead Space 3′s action bent, Gears of War creator and self-professed horror fan Cliff Bleszinski has said triple-A doesn’t really support true survival horror any more. “The $60 disc based market horror doesn’t fly – it’s the ultimate ‘Campaign Rental’ that’s played for two days and traded in and I’m sure EA knows this. When we’re fully digital we’ll see more true horror games coming back. Look at Amnesia and Slenderman on PC,” he said.

Gears of War creator Cliff Bleszinski has signed on to give PAX East 2013′s keynote. Penny Arcade‘s Jerry “Tycho” Holkins describes the developer as having “seen a lot of shit” and “in a very good position to handle this format”. Bleszinski has never been particularly shy about speaking his mind and having left Epic is perhaps even more likely to serve up some interesting observations on the industry. Outspoken developers are something of a PAX keynote trademark – David Jaffe’s 2011 effort was particularly memorable. PAX East takes place in Boston from March 22-24. Some passes have already sold out.

Gears of War creator Cliff Bleszinski isn’t too impressed with the latest Resident Evil games, it seems. In a much-shared tweet, the former Epic staffer asked Capcom to call him, so that they could “fix Resident Evil. Together”. Capcom UK took it in good humour, suggesting only that Bleszinski bring pizza, and the developer later noted that his original comment had been “cocky“.
Resident Evil 6 produced very mixed reviews, although I’m not sure handing over to a western developer is quite the answer fans are looking for. Bleszinski seems to have a number of ideas as to where his career might go next.
