I don’t usually do this, but since it is topical I’ll make an exception.

My blog post at ITWorld today is an opinion piece (and I wish that site emphasized posts tagged opinion more) about the EA layoffs:

Game developer Electronic Arts announces 1500 job cuts

A bit more ‘extreme’ thoughts that I didn’t feel comfortable sharing over there; I think this is a really bad sign for the so-called ‘core gamer.’ It sounds to me like EA is shifting it’s emphasis from the PC/Xbox/PS3 triad over to free-to-play web games with micro-scams… I mean micro-transactions.

I never would’ve imagined Facebook would become such a threat to “real” games.
