Whilst you have to respect any man (apart from Wacko Jacko) who keeps Llamas, makes mind-bogglingly strange games and defiantly chooses to live out in rural West Wales, you also have to agree that Jeff Minter is well...to put it mildly, a bit strange.
The man who created Hover Bovver for the C64 back in 1983 is perhaps best well known for Llamasoft and more recently for the Xbox360 interactive visualiser which he calls "The first step into a future filled with beauty, light, creativity and fun". Being in his brain must be ace!
It seems that Minter really has fallen for the 360 dream, judging by his latest comments in his new, regular Edge magazine sound-off. Speaking about ambling into his local Carmarthen branch of GAME whilst enjoying a nice Cornish pasty, and being baffled at not wanting to put his name down on the PS3 pre-order list, Minter has a few harsh words to say about Sony.
