Tidligere i år kunngjorde EA og utvikler Hazelight spillet A Way Out, og under de mange intervjuene som fulgte kom regissør Josef Fares med noen vagt kritiske kommentarer om kraften og ytelsen til PS4, hvor han sammenlignet den med en 5 år gammel PC. Uttalelsen stemmer på en prikk, men likevel skapte den kontrovers, og nå langer Fares ut mot de mediene som brukte sitatet helt ute av kontekst for å skape blest rundt en ikke-sak.
"[It was] so taken out of context. And I don't even want to comment on that. It's so... I mean, the people who wrote that, it's so silly, it's not even worth commenting on. And if I meet this journalist, I would ask them, "like what were you trying to do here?"
I tillegg poengterer Fares at han ikke bryr seg om konsollkrigen:
"Look, here's the fact. Let me make this one thing straight: I'm a passion driven man. I don't care about hardware. I don't care about console war, that's all bullshit, okay? That was really, extremely, extremely taken out of context. It's not even worth commenting on, because it's so silly, you know. I own every single console, I don't even care about that. I care about games- who cares about consoles, and if they are good or not good? But people seem to like this console war, and so some journalist wanted to have some clicks on his page, I don't know."
