212w ago - Today CEO John Riccitiello of Electronic Arts announced that it is set to cut 1500 jobs, and in addition to that they will be cutting back on new IP by 50 per cent through the next fiscal year.
According to MCVUK.com, this is part of their effort to reduce market risks during a tough economic period.
To quote: The result has been a string of new franchises such as Dead Space, Mirror's Edge, Spore, Zubo, Brutal Legend and Henry Hatsworth. The critical and commercial success of these new ventures has been mixed to say the least, though there have been notable successes.

What Half-Minute Hero is, is a speed RPG/RTS (Real Time Strategy)/Shooter/exercise in affectionate satire. It's a frantic, multi-mode, 8-bit foray into a seemingly stereotypical RPG that will test your skills against the clock and probably make you wonder how wearing a "Charisma Wig" and "Swimming Goggles" can possibly help you save the world.
Only 30 seconds, huh...? 30 seconds may not seem like enough time to save the world, let alone play an entire game, but Half-Minute Hero promises to deliver a true time challenge...over the course of many-many stages, modes, bosses and maps. (Over 20 hours of gameplay and each mode contains 30-50 distinct...
