Another sad day for this industry, last i|
looked the hype machine had figured there
will be 7.4 Billion in sales this year.
Meanwhile the French are making fondu of
IPLY and GTIS. Good deal for them, bad deal
for all the talent they are buying because
they don't know S**T from Shinola about making
Weird, we both own French game companys, maybe
a new board is in order. The best solution would
be for a Interplay/Titus/GT Interactive/Infrogrames
Yeah, and don't forget Havas. I suppose this could be described as ironic...American exportation of corrupt culture through violent videogames is now controlled by the French! What will the future bring? Forget about NASCAR games.....we'll all be road rallying in Peugeots; or perhaps Duke Nukem 5: The Foreign Legion; Deer Hunter will give way to Frog Trapper: 3D; and instead of Unreal Tournament.....we'll have games about striking sanitation workers. Hey, at least the talent will get lots of vacation.
Sales will come...one day. But there are too many problems with hardware and games are too damn expensive. I'm shocked there are enough people willing to pony up $50 as it is.....
That's another discussion. Oh well. C'est la vie!
