TechCrunch has a possible explanation for why OnLive declared ABC bankruptcy to reform under its new owner rather than a straight-forward acquisition.
That's a nice little corporate b*tch slap if true.
What a scumbag. The same guy who wanted to wait out Gaikai just so he could sue them as well. I hope the slimey jackass goes bankrupt.
A clearance sale at the employees' expense. Classy.
It's always the little people that get screwed over.
OnLive can burn in hell anyway.
I know it's just a rumor but it sounds like something the fat cats would pull. Fat cats just get fatter
When fanboys run around shouting "it's a business, it's all about the money", this is the kind of thing they are endorsing.
Every business is about the money - acknowledging that hardly endorses these kinds of practices.
Then you are as bad as they are. Yes, you have to turn a profit to survive, but customer and staff satisfaction should always be a top priority, after all without either you are nothing.
And they are a priority because? Right, because they are the things that make or break your business - e.g. Staff and Customer satisfaction is about the money.
Drop the crappy pedantic attitude, if you haven't noticed the businesses out there that make the unnecessarily obscene amounts of profit don't usually have a very good reputation and will therefore be guilty of the above practices. Maybe I should have made myself clearer, so the easily irritated could understand.
@sjaakejj hope you get ripped of bad and get a taste of what it's like.
You're misunderstanding a few things in my post 1) I do not condone of the practices such as the one specified above 2) Every business is about the money. It's the way they go about doing so that makes the difference, which is the point I was making. Does Blizzard have a bad reputation? or Valve? Yet they make more money than 99% of the businesses out there 3) I was not irritated, I was emphasising my point.
So much for keeping a positive attitude abt getting axed, & just think, some of those smiling ex-employees will accept rehire jobs , lol, unbelieveable, just bend over one more time says the man.
business is money. no arguing that but by owning one, if you wish for your customers to speak highly of you, you try your best to make then happy. in my restaurant, we try to have the best food in our city and people love it. my mom gives people free appetizers and discounts by heart although she works 13-14 hrs a day running the business. but by giving great food and service, the customers are so happy to come and eat. profit is not high when you sell high quality food for under $10 but by that, you sell more and make more.
