    Has anyone here ever had direct contact with MCZ management?......either through a questioner on a conference call....
    I would like to have a discussion with them
    I went on the website and found the email for investor relations...not good enough..
    If they are willing to talk with people with less skin in the game...they should be able to talk with some of us ....
    I see only one person with more than a million shares from MCZ and no institutions with a million

    Just for the record my opinion has not changed on this is my mood that has turned sour

  • !. Sales
    2.Control of expenses
    3.CASH !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    MCZ first went after expenses....which is the easiest to tackle....I rate that project excellent.....but of course now with rockband advertising ,marketing are going to rise!!!

    Rockband 4 enough said!!!....but now what ?.......virtual gaming going to takeoff ...
    They are becoming better in having a clear vision

    This remains there weakest link.....and they still must resort to these awful deals......they are coming from a weak position.....
    The are a growing hurts waiting.....its called growing pains....
    If Sales fall in somewhere between my range then $1 will be absolutely possible in Jan Feb...

  • I reviewed the sales history for the last 2 is what I came up with...
    During off peak quarters the company averaged 13-18 million in sales(average 15 million)....of course last Christmas they did 33 million..
    So let us assume there was no rockband and lets be very conservative with each assumption

    Karen said that the 39 million in sales for the quarter will be be that alone for the month of October....

    So what made up the 39 million in the quarter...I am going to say that 15 million in old stuff....and the remainder was rockband 24 million which only represented half a month.
    So is it safe to say that rockband will generate at least twice as much for a month or $50 million ...I think so considering the hype..
    So without taking any thing else into consideration that would mean $150 million in sales for the quarter!!!!.
    That sounds to good to be I will go one step further and take a drastic haircut of 50%....
    That means for the quarter Rockband should deliver a MINIMUM of $75 million and I will throw in the other #$%$ of $15 million in sales at a haircut of 50% or 7 million
    Conclusion $80-82 million worst case !!!!
    Conclusion best case $150 million....
    So is it possible that $100 million in sales can happen? YES
    Because information has a way of leaking out......If this stock rebounds back to 75c-$1.00 by Christmas and starts fading in the later part of January I would be very concerned!!!
    If management cannot deliver $75 million this quarter I will surrender the white flag....
    I don't think I will have to....
    Please criticism would be welcome

    I can't spin this ........What is causing this downturn is 2 things...
    Unable to breakeven with 39 million in sales
    This ATM
    The conference call was pathetic

    Anything good come out of this ...well yeah...
    Longterm nothing has changed....but the wait IS VERY frustrating..

    Sales in October alone could be $30-40 million according to what I read between the lines.....but this ATM IS MAKING ME VERY ANGRY.....
    probably after black Friday this 40-50c range will be a distant memory...

    Make no mistake I'm bleeding today with mcz and gluu

  • A US trader has become the first to be found guilty of "spoofing" some of the world's largest commodity futures markets in a landmark criminal case for authorities attempting to clamp down on deceptive trading driven by computers.

    A jury in Chicago on Tuesday found Michael Coscia, 53, guilty on 12 counts, including intending to defraud other traders by flooding gold, corn, soyabeans, foreign exchange and crude oil futures markets with small orders with the intent of cancelling them.

    The criminal case was a test of authorities' attempts to stamp out computer-driven misleading trading on the some of the world's most active markets.

    Spoofing is rapidly placing orders with the intent to cancel them before they trade in order to trick other investors by creating the illusion of demand. While long prohibited by authorities and exchanges, it was explicitly banned under the US Dodd-Frank financial reforms of 2010.

    The tactic has risen to prominence in futures markets with the emergence of electronic trading that has taken the place of face-to-face trading.

    Coscia faces a maximum sentence of 25 years and a $25,000 fine on each of the six counts of commodities fraud and 10 years and a $1m fine on each of the six counts of spoofing. Judge Harry Leinenweber set sentencing for March next year.

    "We're disappointed by the verdict," said Mr Coscia's lawyer Steven Peikin of Sullivan and Cromwell. "We believe this case presents many novel and complex issues, and Mr Coscia intends to pursue all of his legal options."

    A lot of level 2 activity for MCZ never makes sense !!!!!!!!
    Do not let these 100 share trades fool or scare you...I have no predictions for this quarter but I will say this

    When a stock goes down 1-2 weeks into usually bodes well for most stocks....MCZ is not a normal stock that follows common trading practice.
    Longer term my prediction is more confident....before virtual reality my target was $2-3 in 1-2 years $3-5 in 2-3 years

  • Star Citizen is a big enough project to have its own conventions. Last week, Chris Roberts showed off a few portions of Star Citizen gameplay at the aptly-named CitizenCon. One of the best parts of the con was when Mad Catz revealed its prototype of a HOTAS controller specifically designed for the game.
    Design concept
    The peripheral is actually a set of interchangeable modules, and looks to be based off the Saitek X52's design. A regular HOTAS is, well, a stick and a throttle, but Mad Catz's custom-designed connectors make it possible to arrange the controller's components in a multitude of ways.
    One particularly interesting detail is the presence of a trackball atop the joystick handle, meant for easier aiming of gimbaled weapons. The controller's keyboard section can also be split, letting pilots use the numerical pad as a weapons control.
    Interestingly enough, all these features concern the lower-end version. Mad Catz is reportedly working on a higher-end model that will include an OLED screen. The design isn't finalized yet, though. The company has made multiple prototypes of this rig, and it expects to refine the product further according to feedback from Star Citizen backers.

  • In late September of 2015, Tianyin Pharmaceutical Co., Inc. (the "Company") was informed that an investigation had been initiated against Dr. Guoqing Jiang, Chief Executive Officer, Acting Chief Financial Officer and Chairman of the Company by Public Order Corps of Sichuan Province Public Security Department (the "SPPSD") in connection with the temporary halt of production and sale of the Company's Hugan Tablets in mid 2014, which was disclosed in a Current Report on Form 8-K filed by the Company on April 7, 2014, amended subsequently on May 14, 2014, May 23, 2014 and July 8, 2014, as well as our periodic reports thereafter. As a part of the investigation, certain files of the Company have been taken by the SPPSD, which has caused additional delay in the Company's annual audit for the fiscal year ended June 30, 2015.

    The Company's Board of Directors is currently looking into this matter and ascertaining the nature and scope of the investigation. The Company will file an amendment to provide more information once it becomes available

  • Analyst: Teens still show strong demand for newest game consoles
    Article from seeking alpha

    Oct 14 2015, 21:15 ET | By: Jason Aycock, SA News Editor

    Demand is still strong among teens for the newest generation of videogame consoles, Piper Jaffray says -- and that's good news for leading game makers like Activision Blizzard (ATVI +0.4%) and Electronic Arts (EA +3.1%).

    Uptake of the Xbox One (MSFT -0.5%) and PlayStation 4 (SNE -1.5%) consoles "is at the highest level we have seen, reinforcing our expectation for a much more rapid pace than prior-gen" consoles, says analyst Michael Olson, a "clear positive" for Activision, EA, Take-Two Interactive (TTWO +0.2%) and retailer GameStop (GME -1.1%).

    The firm's semiannual survey found 73% of videogame-playing teens own an Xbox One or PlayStation 4, or intend to get one -- up from 70% last spring and 67% last fall. Some 39% currently own one of the newer consoles, up from 37% in the spring and 26% last fall.

    "We believe the combination of next-gen console uptake and a robust lineup of AAA titles will lead to sustainable software growth through second-half 2015 and into 2016," Olson writes.

    Mobile players are stable, but the number who'll pay is rising as well. Some 24% of teens who play mobile games by makers like Glu Mobile (GLUU +1.2%) and King Digital (KING -0.4%) say they spend in-game money, the survey said, up from 21% in the spring.

  • Rock Band 4 publisher Mad Catz has apologised for a shortage of Xbox One edition stock.

    Specifically, customers are having difficulty purchasing the physical version of the game with the Legacy Game Controller Adapter, which allows Xbox 360 instruments to be used via Xbox One.

    Amazon, Game, GameStop and ShopTo are all currently showing the item as "out of stock" at the time of writing.

    Eurogamer readers have also received emails from Amazon stating that the company is "still trying to obtain" the product - with orders delayed until further notice.

    The digital edition of Rock Band 4 is also available to download via the Xbox One Games Store, although you will need new Xbox One-compatible instruments to play the game - or the adapter to use Xbox 360 instrument models.

    PlayStation 3 instruments are supported as standard with no adapter required, which is probably why there is no similar shortage for the game's PS4 edition.

    "We're thrilled at the reception both critically and commercially to Rock Band 4 and have been overwhelmed with demand since pre orders opened," Mad Catz global PR exec Alex Verrey told Eurogamer.

    "For months now we have been saying again and again how important it was to pre-order if you wanted to receive hardware on day one. We did warn that demand would be high!

    "To reassure fans, the standalone version of the game on Xbox One (which comes with the Legacy Game Controller Adapter included) has absolutely NOT been delayed in any way. As promised, it is shipping today and those who pre ordered will start receiving it from today.

    "Retail will also be stocking it from today, with the game on shelves nationwide, however, as stated earlier, demand is high. More stock will be arriving throughout October and I would like to stress that the quickest way to ensure delivery is to get an order in now via retailers such as Game, Amazon or indeed the Mad Catz website.

    "We're deeply sorry if any fans are having difficulty purchasing today, we're

    The next step after Rockband 4

    ‘Rock Band’ with Virtual Reality Could be ‘Incredible’

    By Christopher Gates | 6 months ago
    Sure, Rock Band is a great party game, but its appeal goes deeper than just having a good time with friends. With a decent group, Rock Band actually captures the rush of playing music in front of a large, adoring crowd. The fast-paced note-matching gameplay helps, of course, but game mechanics aren’t why Rock Band took the world by storm. It all comes down to the fantasy that Rock Band fulfills.

    According to Steve Janiak, CEO of Rock Band creator Harmonix, that’s by design, and he hopes that the upcoming Rock Band 4 will be the most immersive game in the series yet. As Janiak told Gaming Insiders, “For Rock Band, the feeling of playing live music, of really being on stage with the lights and the crowd and the sound enveloping you, that’s the experience we’re trying to deliver with Rock Band 4.“

    Meanwhile, virtual reality headsets, which aim to make video games and other multimedia experiences more immersive, are becoming increasingly common. With major companies like Sony, Valve, and Facebook (via Oculus) trying to bring virtual reality into living rooms around the world, it seems like Rock Band‘s brand of virtual rock-stardom could become more convincing than ever before.

    Janiak agrees. When Gaming Insiders asked Janiak about Rock Band 4’s virtual reality support, he said, “[Rock Band] could be even more incredible and immersive in the context of VR, and we’re excited about the possibilities.” After all, he says, “Harmonix prides itself on being at the forefront of new technologies…. VR is an intriguing frontier, and a great opportunity to fundamentally reinvent how people connect to music.”
