But it doesn't confirm it won't be laying off tons of staff. It's misdirection.

total misdirection. It sounds like the company actually has been bought up or possibly sold off quietly. Often in those situations the new company lets go of what they deem dead weight and/or redundant staff that they already have.

something tells me this story gets huge by end of day.

Someone could have bought them just for the patents they own and already established infrastructure. So it's still possible everyone is getting laid off. I hope not though.

If they are closing I am sure someone will buy them since they are already a working service.

hmm. we should get a better picture soon. they'll have to address larger questions

I think they are being bought out and just haven't announced who is buying them out.

Remember 38 Studios. We got bad news first, problem-covering news second, then an all-out closure.

I am worried about the potential collateral damage if they do shut down. Bigger companies will be fine, but companies like Monkey Paw won't be as lucky.

Based on the original source, the company isn't "shutting down" its "becoming something else." Like RAVEN said above, I think they are being bought out.

Another "entity" so they are becoming someone else property. If its going to Xbox or PS3, then that explains why certain titles need to be removed.

They have an agreement with Ouya too, right?
