As many of you know a few days ago ANN broke the story of Media Blasters laying off 60% of its staff. This report is on top of the news last week that Bandai is doing a major downsizing regarding its North American operations.
IF you needed any idea of the issues facing our industry in 2012 these two stories are a good example of what I'm talking about. The industry is undergoing a fundamental change in the way it does business (and once again the people who "know this business" never saw it coming) and its not all due to piracy. (to be fair it is a component)
I think this will be something discussed further during a convention panel. HMMMMMMMM
