Publishers add nothing to the gaming industry.

Except for, you know, the capital required to make a game like GTA, Saints Row, etc.

Had there been no publishers, that capital would still be there. Either it would have come from previous sales (like it does now), or from venture capitalists investing in the gaming industry (like it does now). Or do you think that RICIETOEOETELELLOo coughs it up out of his own pocket or something?

The article mentions that THQ's publishing part was THREE-HUNDRED people. That's 300 salaries and benefits etc that every single game published by THQ had to cover. Imagine if that hadn't been there.
