Who's buying THQ? You might as well said, buying Electronic Arts... If they want to add a lot of headache to their year then they should consider either.
Personally, I think they'd do a lot better buying up the French company GameLoft... Take a close look at their earnings. That company is doing great without a lot of promotion and it is getting a large chunk of its revenue from the states.
Yes, it's true. Reliable sources on the intArweb have informed me that Kotick ate some really strong peyote Black Friday and thought he was getting a great deal at the Apple store. No wonder we were down Friday.
