During a video interview with God of War creator David Jaffe, Garvin acknowledged that his opinion is controversial, however added that “If you love a game, buy it at f****** full price.” “I can’t tell you how many times I’ve seen gamers say ‘yeah, I got that on sale, I got it through PS Plus,’ whatever,” he complained. When Jaffe requested how persons are supposed to like a recreation they haven’t performed, Garvin doubled down on his stance.
“I’m just saying, you don’t, but don’t complain if a game doesn’t get a sequel if it wasn’t supported at launch,” he continued. “It’s like, God of War got whatever number millions of sales at launch and, you know, Days Gone didn’t. Just speaking for me personally as a developer, I don’t work for Sony, I don’t know what the numbers are. I can tell you that when we were doing [Syphon Filter] Dark Mirror [on PSP], we got so f***** because piracy was a thing and Sony wasn’t really caught up on what piracy was doing to sales.”
Garvin went on to disclose that he was fired from his place as a consequence of his “disruptive” character.
