Latest breakdown per studios of the SCEE lay-offs

Last week rumours about possible lay-offs circulated amongst Sony Computer Entertainment Europe (SCEE) employees. These hearsays turned out to be more than just hot air when SCEE executives confirmed the company's intentions to reduce their global workforce.

As prophesised, during the last few days SCEE proceeded to announce layoffs of up to 160 employees from their different studios and subsidiaries in upcoming months. According to sources close to SCEE, the actual estimated break down per studio for the future redundancies is the following, so far:

* ~15 positions at SCEE Cambridge (out of ~90 employees in total).
* Between 50 and 60 employees at SCEE Liverpool (out of more than 500 employees in total).
* Between 40 and 50 employees (around 20 of those are from the game studio side of the London offices) at SCEE London (out of more than 300 employees in total).

This is a small shakeup of things to come. I'm sure their are many "Blind Lemmings" who didn't see this coming, or will say this is a "good thing" for the company, but for the men and women and families of those that are about to lose their livelihood, I hope you all find employment again real soon.

Are you retarded or something? That's the lamest "nickname" to call someone.

As opposed to how Microsoft handles things? Like how in the late 90's, early 2000, Microsoft FIRED 40% of their Windows support agents, becuase laying them off would have dropped their stock price? Or how they filled the vacant positions with technicians out of India and the Philippines, "to reduce costs"?

All companies do this, it's part of corporate life.. Like it or not.

Are you saying that anybody that works for any corporation is a "lemming"?
