I kind of hope not, SouthPeak's content overall might not be great but they do put out the occasional gem. But this is because of he HD market, these publishers need to adapt more to the lower entry market like the Wii, Portables and Download services.

The key to success is to not overindulge but to keep a dedicated.

Southpeak sucks . I hope they lose everything. Hail to the Chimp? Yuck.

Buy that game. It's awesome.
