Lol, "terminated". By EA, probably.

Of which these jackals were probably either responsible for or signed off on.

I dont read numbers, but could someone explain how they sank? The Saints Row games and a yearly WWF game seems (to me at least) like a cash cow alone. Then you can add all the other games! Did they just blow the money on coke and woman? Seems like they would have millions and millions?
blah blah blah blah blah, I don't care about your clever response, only proves me right.

for each title that sold well there was a homefront, darksiders 2, red faaction and u-draw, high cost titles that didnt sell well enough even great titles like metro didnt sell to expectations, throw in anti consumer, anti family passes decimating the number of online players very quickly and you have a downward spiral of "well it has online but their last online game was empty in a few weeks so i'll skip on buying this one".


anyway as for the execs, frankly they should have been the first out of the door and if there was any justice they'd be living on the dole so their families could "benefit" from their own greedy attempts to damage the legal preowned market.
