Back in June Hazelight (A Way Out) founder, Josef Fares, came into the limelight for all the wrong reasons. In an interview with Engadget, he likened the PlayStation 4 to a five-year-old PC, which unsurprisingly resulted in quite a bit of backlash. Reflecting upon the uproar, Fares recently told GamingBolt that the journalist stirred the pot by taking his comments out of context, and that he doesn’t care about hardware.
When quizzed about his controversial comments, Fares expressed his displeasure and said:
It’s so… I mean, the people who wrote that, it’s so silly, it’s not even worth commenting on. And if I meet this journalist, I would ask them, “like what were you trying to do here?”
Look, here’s the fact. Let me make this one thing straight: I’m a passion driven man. I don’t care about hardware. I don’t care about console war, that’s all bullshit, okay? That was really, extremely, extremely taken out of context. It’s not even worth commenting on, because it’s so silly, you know. I own every single console, I don’t even care about that. I care about games. Who cares about consoles, and if they are good or not good? But people seem to like this console war, and so some journalist wanted to have some clicks on his page, I don’t know.
