The poor economy is showing itself all over the place these days and it seems even the gaming industry is affected. EA Games is set to lay off about 600 employees to save money, cut costs and reduce their losses.
After experiencing losses of $310 million, which is up 63% from last year, EA has decided to lay off 6% of their employees in what they're calling a "global reduction." The main purpose of the lay-off is to incur a savings of $50 million. Hiring will also reduce drastically and open positions will be closed.
