Sega: Lay-offs help aim for "leadership position" in "digital space"

VG247: Sega Europe has issued a statement on its restructuring plan, saying dropped 73 staff across both its London and San Francisco offices will allow it to focus on the "exciting" world of discless media.

The story is too old to be commented.

I'm sure those newly 73 unemployed people think of it like that too. -__-

They seem pretty happy about leaving 73 people jobless. I'm sure they are trying to get some extra funds by cutting costs, but they could be a little more discreet about their joy.

We, latest batch of talentless overpaid execs who used to sell soap / credit cards and now run a game company, have absolutely ZERO idea of how to compete in the internet-age of consumer entertainment. Therefore the only thing that may ensure we get a partial bonus is to cut jobs and pray someone from Zynga can send us a helpful PPT or Word doc on what to do next.
Sega are INFAMOUS for terrible support of their products, even the rare gems like Bayonetta.

Being in the game industry, I really feel for those 73 employees. Now is just not the time to be laid off.
