THQ lays off 250 staff, posts losses

http://www.bit-tech.net/news/2008/11...posts-losses/1

The economic climate isn't making things much better for publishers like THQ, who have posted increased losses this year.

I find it hard to be sympathetic with THQ. I remember when seeing their name associated with a game was a sure sign that it was absolute garbage. Reading through the contents page of Super Play told me which reviews to avoid because they were painful enough to read, never mind playing the games.

Still, they somehow survived and I acknowledge they've come a long way over the years, even though they've taken a recent hit. Of course the newly unemployed is unfortunate.

So basically they're going to dedicate themselves to making samey crap because that's what people buy. Pity, but with both Stalker games they showed that they have a hard time releasing a decent product.

They didn't release STALKER Clear Sky because they had such a hard time with STALKER, IIRC.
