    THQ Closing Their Doors

    did you really just ask if Bo has his cwp?

    he shot his name into the application form from 1000 yards... while on a Segway... One handed with his USP in .45ACP... While doing pushups AND eating his sandwich...

    always a bummer to hear a company is closing its doors, hopefully most of those people will be offered positions by the buyers of their projects.

    yeah really - and one thats been around for a long time. Used to think that THQ made crappy games way back in the day... not so much now -- sad to see 'em go

    //edit - and Atari filed for bankruptcy as well

    Despite bringing in roughly $5.1M with their bundle sale apparently they were in the hole in a big way.

    I liked SR3 and all of the Red Faction games (I have the original RF even).

    Xbox sales are down by $1B too.
    To make a game people can love, you have to love it first.

    Both the PS3 and the X360 are nearing end of life. Both will probably be replaced in 2014.

    Edit- both were strong machines and lasted a long time. Weaker consoles (like the Wii-Wii) die quickly... and rightly so.

    just saying if you don't have one yet (or do), you probably aren't running out to buy one, its not surprising the sales are down.

    Probably true to a point... but I did convince a dude at work to snag one on Black Friday... mostly to get people to play GT5 with.
