I thought this was interesting as well

Forbes info
Thanks for the link!
BTW, that titus mentioned there I believe was that french company that bought out interplay and subsequently failed under Caen's leadersihp, if I remember right.

Speaking in general now, not to a specific comment:
As I recall, the total they spent on fallout MMO development over the 4 years in question from the contract was something less than $1 million, out of the $30 million they were contractually obligated to in order to keep the fallout MMO IP. And I recall at least part of that time where it was less than Caen's salary, much less his salary and inflated bonuses. Didn't he end up having to take a paycut, and then firing all the executives, and hiring his brother as an executive so he could still siphon a nice chunk of change from interplay's corpse?

I documented a bunch of this a long time ago on blues, complete with source links. Maybe I should go dig it up.
