That would be unfortunate if not terribly surprising. Jeff's always been a frank though friendly voice of the community. He's willing to ask the questions people want answers to, even when those questions are awkward.

Like "Why should people care about your game coming to PlayStation a year late?" "What can you tell us about the performance of your game on PS3?" "Your previous installment on PS3 was known to be buggy, have you made any improvements this time around?"

While it wasn't always the case, I've grown the respect the man.

I agree with this statement. He put developers on the spot all the time when it came to the PS3 versions of their games. I hope this isn't true but if it is I wish him the best of luck, and I relay my thanks for being there when PlayStation gamers needed a voice in the media.

Sorry, but he is a complete D**K. He banned me on the PlayStation blog because I said "How about those Philly" when the lost the NLCS to he Giants a few years ago.

Well at least you live up to your name.

Quite a while ago, they put a post on the blog that very clearly told commenters to stay on topic. You didn't you got burned. Move on.

that was in 2011 when this happen and it was the last line on my post. So my post was on topic and relevant to the article I was commenting on.

He was on my PSN friends list, until I put "Let's go Mets" on my profile, haha. Then he booted me. --- 12

He lasted a good while as well.

The EU blog gets a new manager every year or 2.
Vitalogy  +   1029d ago
Well he can take the EU blog pseudo-manager with him. That fred dutton is a freaking arrogant dude that has next to none connection/comunication with the community.
