Dan Porter, general manager of Zynga New York, recently sought to clarify statements he had made at a panel discussion where he stated that “Zynga is often accused of copying games, which is mostly true”.

In a blog post, Porter stated that, “Some of you have seen in the press that I supposedly said Zynga copies games. I was very surprised when the article came out because it was a misrepresentation of what I said at a small talk about the future of gaming and where I talked mostly about wearable gaming and ramification of everyday events.

“When I spoke to this group, I told them what I truly believe: the debate over copying games is a distraction if you are trying to figure out the future of social games; what matters is the ability to run those games as a service.

“But I also know that is a nuanced point and isn’t quite as sexy a headline. I should know better. Lesson learned. Sometimes it is truly better to say nothing at all.”
