Par for the course for modern corporate/wall street behavior.
No one gives a shit about long-term investments, and building a company that will last a hundred years. They all seem to think it's a get rich quick scheme, which it is for many. What they don't care to notice is the trail of wreckage they're leaving behind in the countries that made their success possible.
THQ and their shareholders would have dick without the talent that made games, but the talent will be the first ones they screw over.
