Even when the industry was doing really well back in 2003-2008, Atari still managed to lose buckets of money.

On paper. Always remember that these losses are on paper, and are typically the result of blatant felony-level outright lies creative accounting.

EA has been losing money since like 1927, but the company is still perfectly fine, and the IRS apparently doesn't find this peculiar.

(of course, the US government does the exact same thing: Lose money hand over fist and keep on trucking. :p )


I gotta agree with Beamer, there's nothing about Atari that is respectable since they got bought by Infogrames. It's a miserable piece of shit company that ruins licenses, releases poorly tested games then refuses to patch them, and in general is a fucking blight on the game industry.

The sooner it dies, the better. Maybe someone decent can buy the licenses/IP they hold and do something interesting with them.
