There's nothing but bad management at companies like THQ who can't run a brothel!It happens world wide and it certainly doesn't happen overnight, if said companies actually had decent accountants, CEO and board members they would never ever get into these predicaments. Instead they have a 'live for today, sod tomorrow' mentality.
They can all move up but never,ever factor in how to cope with a recession and drop.
The main thing is the board,share holders and CEO get a HUGE cut/golden payoff in the sell-off and move onto destroy another company -still putting coffers in their OWN banks.

Well, at least this way we can just blame Ubisoft when the next Saint's Row game is nowhere near as good as the Third.

Because it won't be.
