That is one of the most insincere, passive-aggressive apologies I've ever seen. I'm willing to bet he is "apologizing" because his reputation is nil right now and he's desperately trying to still have a job in gaming journalism after his latest fuckup.
This is the guy that said "Part of the reason it's difficult is that the game is well balanced" in the NS2 review, or this little gem in the Yakuza 3 review:

Yeah, I said it. Because it's true. Don't say I didn't warn you."
This fucker is as clueless as they come.
