Gaming market is getting rough..

I think this is just the beginning of the consolidation to come. THQ has been unhealthy for a long while but it managed to limp along for at least two years on core franchises alone, similar to Take 2's strategy.

I wonder if that's the best method of running a company? Relying on hits doesn't seem smart.

Blah, Sony or MS could have benefited from a studio or ip from the auction
It's crazy but I really really feel bad for THQ. :( this industry is cold and its a darn shame that most anything outside of mega franchises don't perform well in today's economy

I agree, Sony, Microsoft or Nintendo could have swooped down from on high and taken Darksiders, for example.

The console brands still benefit since the franchises will continue to be multi-platform

Somebody needs to get hold of Darksiders asap. Darksiders 1 and 2 is the perfect example of how to draw inspiration from a franchise (zelda) and put your own Unique , lovable slant on it.

Oh the irony: first and second Assassin's Creed creative director left Ubisoft for THQ Montréal and now it's getting bought by Ubi.
