Disney Gaming Loses $115 Million

Walt Disney has had one of their toughest starts to the year. The company has revealed that in the first three months, between January to March 2011, they collectively ran at a loss of 115 million dollars. This has shown that their previous deficit of 55 million dollars has substantially increased. (Disney Interactive, Industry)

With the exception of Disney's DOS classic Coaster, of course :)

Split Second says otherwise.

And tron legacy and every hannah montana game bites back to put that theory in its place

I wonder why? Maybe they should leave the crappy kid games for the WII first party devs...

How horrible. Hope their plans with Playdom become fruitful.

That is because Disney do not make M rated games and we know if it is not M rated 12-13 year old...
...kids will not buy it.

Nothing but pocket change to Disney though.

Time to make good games I think. Maybe a FP fighter/shooter where all Disney characters go out their way to harm each other. I would buy this, but my baby boy might not like Mickey mouse being stabbed LoL
Sorry son : ( daddy didn't mean to kill mickey

If they spent less time making "Epic Mickey" and more time working with Square Enix making Kingdom Hearts games, I'm sure they would turn a profit.
