It's not a matter of "needing" money, it's a matter of "If we don't get this money we go away" desperation. Which means that if the EDC is legit in this case, 38 studios said "We're doing fine, but with this money we could expand, bring on more people, and make more/bigger games".

But it sounds like it's possible that 38 studios was sending graft back to the EDC. Which again would answer your question.

"Hey, I need money. Say 70 million. Give us a loan for 75 and 5 of it will get 'reinvested in the community' if you know what I mean."

So, basically, they didn't need to expand . . . but if they did expand, they would need money to do it?

My point was, basically, $75 million is a LOT of money to borrow in a "just because it's useful to have" sense. I find it highly doubtful no one would have been suspicious.
This isn't like me going up to a friend and saying "Hey man, I'm doing fine, but with $20 thousand I could be doing better, ha ha."
