I hope Microsoft buys them.

CloudsEnd3272d ago

Yeah maybe you will get another flop like Lair.. lol

DavidMacDougall3272d ago

Microsoft will be saving there money to "try" and buy games next year because they ain't got any

Factor 5 had no problem making great games for the Gamecube. It's obvious the crippled architecture of the PS3 was the reason they failed with Lair so I'm not worried at all.

Jenzo, on the flip side

Rare had no problem making great games for the N64. It's obvious the crippled architecture of the 360 was the reason they failed with every 360 game they've released so I'm not worried at all.

Square Enix had no problem making great games for the PS2. It's obvious the crippled architecture of the 360 was the reason they failed with every 360 game they've released so I'm not worried at all.

It's obvious you haven't played Banjo: Nuts & Bolts.

If EA, (as big as they are) are making cuts, then no one is safe.

-Games will be slashed
-Salaries diminished
-Pink slips handed out
-Money will be owed

But what does it take for this insider info to come out besides a disgruntle employee? Hey look at TECMO.

Right now if your game is not selling, then you might be in trouble.

who is factor five again honestly droids are hyping these guys way to much

PirateThom3272d ago

They made Rogue Squadron series, Indiana Jones' Greatest Adventures and Lair. If you've been playing games for more than a few months, you'd know about them. They've made awesome games, but just didn't deliver with Lair.

I feel bad for these guys but business is business. All fingers point to Lair.

If that post is real, the guy is a baby. If you lose a job, move on to another. He just burned a bridge at F5
