Sega Sammy Lays Off 400 - Feb 09, 2008 23:48

Well, I think this article speaks for itself, so instead, I' m going to have fun playing buzzword bullsh17 bingo with the quoted text.

" Due to Sega failing to respond to changing business environment, the operating performance of its core businesses, including the amusement facilities business and domestic consumer business, has not been performing well," said Hajime Satomi, chairman and CEO.

" As part of these measures, Sega has determined to solicit voluntary retirement of employees to reduce fixed costs and gain greater cost flexibility through optimum employment."

Ouch, so not even their arcade business is doing well? I know that their home console has been doing less good for a while but not that the arcade division followed the trend.

I also thought that Sega said that things would be so much better when they didn' t have to support a console of their own ;)

How about they " voluntarily retire" the Sammy half?
