Total waste of money that could be spent on much better things.

I'd tend to disagree. While it may be dubious what type of game gets released, I think if there was more focus on browser-based games, particularly by the f2p Asian market, the barriers of entry would be super Easy-Peazy for many (ie: No downloads or HD space required).

This would bring more people to try out games. Of course, easier to leave such games, too. Good or bad.

Having read the Big Point aquisition of $350 million, I think these guys got a better deal!

Even Asian grinders look better than most of Big Point's game catalog!
