Funcom posts $9.6 million loss in Q3 2009

posted by Alfonso CubiasAlfonso Cubias 2748 days, 18 hours, 4 minutes ago
Thursday, November 19, 2009 7:17:38 AM GMT
Following a round of layoffs, a delay for one of its most anticipated titles and continuing reports of the player decline of Age of Conan, we knew that Norwegian developer Funcom wasn't in the best shape. Earlier today, the company posted its Q3 financial results and confirmed our suspicions: The company's reporting a $9.6 million loss for the third quarter of this year. Compared to the company's $3.3 million profit from the same period last year, that's a pretty disheartening decline. (more)

During Modern Warfare 2’s launch event in the UK, the voice actor for the game’s Ghost character, Craig Fairbrass, mentioned that “they” — presumably Infinity Ward — are considering a game solely for Ghost. “I did in the last game a voice for a character called Gaz and in this game I’m now voicing a guy called Ghost, who now just got a spin-off comic of his own and they’re talking about another little game to go with it,” Fairbrass told Inside Xbox (video’s on Live and embedded below), “so, I’m quite ex...

In College, the Party Never Stops — for LAN

posted by Alfonso CubiasAlfonso Cubias 2750 days, 19 hours, 30 minutes ago
Tuesday, November 17, 2009 5:51:19 AM GMT
Last week, more than a million users flooded Xbox Live to play Modern Warfare 2. Here's something just as impressive: In January, nearly 300 gamers will meet in person to play a game released in 2000. Though one is obviously dwarfed by the comparison, both figures are impressive in their own right. And both speak to the health of their form of multiplayer gaming. For console games like Modern Warfare 2, multiplayer's meteoric growth is commonly understood. But for LAN parties, still playing games like C... (more)

The Games That Missed The October Top 10

posted by Alfonso CubiasAlfonso Cubias 2750 days, 19 hours, 31 minutes ago
Tuesday, November 17, 2009 5:50:19 AM GMT
We know about the games that came 1-10 in the October NPDs, but what of the also-rans? Those coming in between 11-20? Are they not also deserving of some time in the sun? While we've touched briefly on the performance of two titles not making the top 10, let's look at the other 9. Yes, nine, not eight, because DJ Hero's sales were so dismal (it's best-performing SKU being the 360 version, with 62,000 sold) that it couldn't even make the top 20. So, without further ado, here are October's almost-there g... (more)
