<BLOCKQUOTE><font size="1" face="Tahoma, Arial, Helvetica">quote:</font><HR>GT to Vanish From Game Shelves


GT Interactive and Infogrames announced today on the eve of E3 that GT games would bear the Infogrames name and branding as of this month. This means that the GT name will virtual disappear from the game buyer's perspective, though the GT stock will continue to be traded publicly. Infogrames started its acquisition of GT by purchasing a majority stake in the company late last year.

"Although the GT name is associated with powerful brands, such as Driver and Unreal, we felt this new corporate branding strategy would bring a renewed level of strength for both Infogrames and GT," said Bruno Bonnell, chairman and CEO of Infogrames Entertainment and GT Interactive.

Infogrames has also revealed that it has secured from Epic Games an exclusive publishing and distribution deal for all Unreal games. The deal includes the PC, Mac, and console versions of Unreal Tournament, Unreal 2, and, optionally, Unreal 3.<HR></BLOCKQUOTE>

Hmm. I just hope they don't rape GT the way Havas did with Sierra.

/me is still pissed about the whole "Babylon 5: Into the Fire"-thing

As little as I know about that (and as little as I want to know about that), I hope so too. :)

It's all very simple...
there are lots of game companies.
some of them own other ones.
everyone is owned by the Evil Global Mega-Corporation that rules the world.

Oh no! They're after me!

Just a little snippet from the Matrix I thought would be perfect to fit in right there. :)

As for *them* listening, I worked for them (I'm 16, so ask me now, if you wish), so they can go screw a grapefruit for all I care. Always exact your revenge after you're done with them. :)

What white rabbit?
All I see are the cute purple space bunnies who are my friends...

Thanks for the offer of pills, but I'm perfectly happy with the orange ones that the nice men in white coats gave me. They make me feel safe and warm and sleepy...
