Not according to what I've seen on twitter. This has turned into pitchfork party from a number of people on there. Personally, I think Brandon made a big mistake by posting the article when he did, as he clearly doesn't have enough information outside of a one-sided situation and speculation. This isn't the first time he's done this, but since it's something he appears to have taken personally, there was no common sense behind it, sadly. The unfortunate thing in this, is that kind of post is enough to shoot himself in the foot, too. I don't know (and don't think) XSEED would pull the trigger in this way, but PR companies would blacklist for stuff like what we've seen in this whole issue. A number of us on twitter had sent him an email he could use to contact someone directly at XSEED, and from looking at the article, I don't think he used the email we provided. In my opinion, he should've waited a little longer to try to get more information first- but now that he's let this blow up like it did instead of trying to work it out quietly, this is going to cause issues for both NG and XSEED. It's a giant can of worms, now. I also think that the fact that he published the article at the end of the day on a Friday is even worse. Seriously.
