Pachter vs. Gamer's Voice

Wedbush analyst Michael Pachter has issued a response to Gamers' Voice after they reacted to him calling them a "cry baby" over their efforts at calling out Activision to the UK government over unhappiness at the shipping state of Call of Duty: Black Ops for the PC and PS3. Pachter's missive is posted on Computer and Video Games (thanks Joao), where the admittedly "arrogant" analyst seems interested in a war of words on this topic. Here's an excerpt from his 953(!) word response:

"Now that I have had the opportunity to take their comments into consideration, I think that I may have insulted all crybabies by using that word to describe Gamers' Voice. They seem genuinely unaware about standards for product performance in the UK and elsewhere; products must perform adequately, not flawlessly, unless there are safety or health concerns.

"As far as I am aware, none of the bugs in Black Ops cause people to have seizures, so I'm pretty sure that health is not a concern. I am also not aware of any issues with safety, unless the Gamers' Voice organization is concerned that the overweight segment of the gaming population might suffer if they have to arise from the sofa to re-boot their PS3s when they seize up.
