Been a bad week for the Job Loss Tracker – so I need help with it
It has been a bad week in AAA-games land.
Ouch, ouch, ouch.
It’s not all bad news. BlackOps did $360 million of revenue in the first day in the US and the UK alone. Microsoft shipped 1 million units of Kinect. Together, they pushed the UK to it’s highest week of retail sales for games ever.
The high prices of video and computer games have even been blamed for pushing the British rate of inflation (CPI) up to 3.2%.
It’s been a busy week, and I’ve struggled to keep up with it. So I’m looking for a volunteer for the Job Loss Tracker.
It’s not a paid role. It just means updating the database whenever job losses or redundancies are confirmed. (I no longer write blog posts about job losses – it was too depressing and I’m generally an optimistic and cheerful chap).
So if you read a lot of video games news sites, stay on top of the goings-on in the games industry and want some industry recognition (and to help me out), let me know via [email protected].
I reckon it will take 15-30 minutes of your time a week.
