THQ: Layoffs "Just Business"

THQ on the future of Homefront on GameSpot features THQ executive vice president of Core Games Danny Bilson discussing the just-launched shooter franchise. Along the way he addresses the layoffs that followed completion of the game's development, invoking the Godfather philosophy: "Well in the film business, everybody says good-bye at the end of the movie and then they go work on something else. I wish we had enough work to go around and keep everybody employed all the time, but sometimes it's just business." Thanks IndustryGamers.

Problem. It is not the movie business. To top that, after my experience in game dev, the industry has a lot more maturing / growing up to do then the film industry as well. Also your key "actors" the ones who make the meat of your "films" don't average in the millions per game.

Edit: I guess comparison to a tv show wasn't good enough either huh? Some of those guys are on their shows for years and years. What a retarded comparison this guy made.
