This entire Aerofighters 3 debacle has been a huge cluster. There’s still a lot of information coming out from all sides. Today David Garrett has responded once more with a surprising offer: a 100% full refund. In his own words:
No this isn’t the next Call of Duty game, it’s a brand new card game. You know those games you play on tabletops without a controller? The game is a deceptively simple task of capture the flag.
If you’ve been around the site these past few days, we’ve been following the story of David Garret, a supposed ex-employee of SNK. After posting his original story, some accusations and questions came to light. This was followed by a response by David himself.
Of course one of the underlying issues is the legitimacy of the infamous Aerofighter 3 cartridge which sold for a whopping $30,000 a few months back. One of the buyers of that game has come forward with a startling accusation: the game is a fake. He’s done an in depth analysis of the cartridge, the label, instruction manual, and insert. With the events of the past few days and now this bombshell, the case for David Garret isn’t looking good. If true, this could blow the lid on one of the biggest video game hoaxes of all time.

What is Persona 4 Arena?
Persona 4 Arena is a canonical sequel to the hit Japanese RPG, Persona 4. It is a two dimensional, sprite based fighting game developed as a joint project between Atlus and Arc System Works, creators of the Guilty Gear and Blazblue series.
More news has come forth from the story of the Ex-SNK employee(?) David Garrett, as he speaks out over the controversy of Aerofighters 3 and Power Spikes 2. For those that don’t know, these carts recently sold for over $30,000 US dollars a pop.. and for any collector that is a rather large chunk to pay for a piece of a collection. So for those that don’t know why these went for that much I’ll sum it up. These were thought to be games that didn’t make it to retail shelves and were forever lost, despite having arcade release counterparts. I’ll just get to the point and show you what Dave had to say about both the the legitimacy of the carts, as well as backing up his position at SNK…
we ran an article on David Garrett who claims he worked for SNK. Originally I had planned on writing the followup article covering the second half of his story. Though after recent developments, I thought it best to take a look at the other side. Read more
