The Sad, Final Days Of THQ

Kotaku: This afternoon, THQ CEO Brian Farrell and president Jason Rubin met with about a hundred of their staff at corporate headquarters in southern California.

Tomorrow, most of them will lose their jobs. Within the next few weeks, the video game publisher will disappear entirely. This was their last meeting.

"There were plenty of people crying," said one former employee who preferred that we not use his name. "Brian seemed very emotional." (Industry, THQ)
