Rage in Receivership

Beckham game firm calls in receivers (thanks muff) is the BBC news article with the latest bad news for embattled game developer Rage Software. The article details the company's financial woes (story), and goes on to offer this grim prognosis:

The software company that makes the David Beckham Soccer Game has collapsed, with the loss of 77 jobs.

Receivers have been appointed by Liverpool-based computer game firm Rage Software, ending hopes that a rescue package could be put together.

The Liverpool-based firm is now likely to be broken up, and any new games it is working on sold off.

The future of the remaining 85 staff will depend on the sale of the intellectual property rights of games currently in development.

Its nice that they are fixing the bugs, but jesus, look at them!, all the bugs are really bad gameplay bugs, nothing to do with hardware.
