I am paraphrasing, but he went on about how smart he is, how he actually invented the Revolution controller, and bragged about how "complete" Halo 2 was.
Interesting, I got something totally different out of the Gamespot article.http://www.gamespot.com/news/6135302.html
I didn't really see anywhere where he talked about how smart he was. (although, that comment might have been directed at another interview) His remark on the revolution controller wasn't anywhere near stating that he invented it. He merely said that he thought about putting an accelerometer in a controller and the people he talked didn't like the idea. He actually applauds Nintendo for doing it. You can take his comment about Halo2 completeness two ways. If you only look at the SP of it, yeah, it was quite incomplete. But if you look at the MP of it, you can see where he's coming from...over a year of in house MP testing went into that game, and they didn't release it until they felt MP was rock solid. And from my perspective, for a console FPS MP online game, it certainly was solid.
