Konami All Cashed Up

The whole company (games, slot machines & gyms) was up on the previous quarter, including the games division, which saw a sales increase of 8.6%, with net revenues totalling USD$292 million. Surprised? That's what happens when you own Pro Evo and when you release Metal Gear Solid: Portable Ops. You make money.

omg if konmai dont want to go bankrupt they must port MGS4 to the 360

To quote an old Meatloaf song "You took the words right out of my mouth." So much for but, but, but everything has to be multiplatform to make money.

That might have been the tune devs danced to 6 months ago when PS3 was still losing exclusives just because of the small user base, and I said then it would be temporary.

By the time MGS4 is out PS3's userbase will be 10M strong at least and actually climb with the release. That plenty of units to support a AAA hit.

Goodtimes, noodle salad.

That is their big thing, which is funny.

I'm glad they like the smell of money 'cos there can only be a lot more going their way with their wise decision to open up the MGS franchise to other platforms.

First they give Rockstar a boost, now Konami, and it's almost time to I guess put $50 million into Square Enix hand and and get our Final Fantasy on. Let's see, while we are shopping, are there any more IPs we need??? Let me look at the list again.......

EKWB reportedly plagued with financial disarray many gaming pc's left without parts

EK Cooling allegedly has slipped itself into a hot soup of seemingly endless financial woes, where it has not paid its staff, suppliers, and contractors for many months as the company is facing liquidity problems and a surplus of inventory left unsold, stuck in the warehouse for a more extended period. Gamers Nexus investigated these claims made by former and current personnel, where he found trails of unpaid bills lasting as long as three to four months and unpaid raises that accumulated for almost a year.

EK Water Blocks has two entities—a Slovenian-based headquarters and a US-based subsidiary, EK Cooling Solutions. Steve narrated the series of events in detail, stating that the company was reportedly irresponsible and negligent regarding payment. Consequently, partners and employees are forced to share the burden of alleged mismanagement. It all begins with its extensive range of products, leading to a surplus of goods. EK has over 230 water blocks, 40 liquid cooling kits, 85 reservoirs, 40 pumps, 73 radiators, and 212 miscellaneous accessories.

Yes this is not about video games directly but indirectly this will impact the pc gaming/workstation space hard.

This company is massive one of two in the water cool space so if it goes poof then thousands out there have no spare parts or half built computers.

SO yeah i know not about a video game but think of it as amd leaving the pc space but this is ekwb that could be leaving water cooling in the pc space

Jayz2cents a supporter of there products also has issues

As someone that has built a watercooling rig. EK is big, but there's so many numerous watercooling part companies out there. EK's stuff isn't exactly amazing quality for the price compared to others either, it's just ok. Much like Corsair. The impact would be negligible long term. For perspective the majority of my parts are XSPC, at most I use EK for my gpu waterblocks and fittings. Both easily replaceable.
