Not A Good Week for Video Game Careers
Wow, this week is just not the time to be paying attention if you want a career in vidya games, is it? Just this week, Popcap announced they're laying people off. Funcom is laying people off. OnLive fired everyone then rehired only a fraction of those left. Nintendo Power magazine is shutting down. And now we're finding out that Sony Studio Liverpool, the company that makes the Wipeout games and has a nearly-30-year game development history back from the time they were called Psygnosis, is now being closed down entirely by Sony. Yeah, and it's only Wednesday.
