Dark times for MMO's indeed. All this stuff thats out and I've either played my fill, or have no interest in playing it.
The holiday season is coming up fast, and for once... I'm not sure if there's anything really good on the horizon for me.

Skyrim is the only thing that seems to be perking my interest, I just hope it can fill the gap till some of these big names get their release dates sorted out.

Seeing it in all industries all over the world. Trade slump is bad. Hope those people find new jobs soon and the slump problem is gone asap.

Maybe they need to develope an Australian based Mining MMO - The industry here just keeps expanding. 150K just for driving a truck around.

@mmogaddict

You actually can make great money driving a truck most anywhere in the world, but you make greater money if you work longer hours, meet deadlines/schedules and take harder-to-transport cargo along hard/god-forsaken routes. That's not counting any "boom economy" that might also be happening where you are, as that attracts LOTS of people because the money can be fantastic.

No surprise here.
If you continue to put out crap and arrogantly assume people will constantly swallow it you're in for a shock eventually.

Actually I am surprised, I'm surprised people took so long to wake the heck up.

The industry collasped in the 80's because of the same thing, it's just history repeating itself.

It was to be expected that a natural recession would take place at a given point in time. But this can only prove beneficial to the players because maybe quality and innovation will take a higher role again in MMO development instead of polishing the same old thing... It was just a matter of time and it is quite normal for any business. I take this as good news

I hate to say it, but it looks more like companies getting rid of folks to pad the bottom line for end of the year reviews. If you can't make a real profit, you fire a bunch of people, make your numbers for xmas, and get your fat bonuses. Not really anything new though ..big companies do this every year.
