    As it stands, the most recent information gathered from official sources seems to be that EA has undergone a staff reduction of about 5%. EA’s website indicates the company’s employees worldwide to number 6,100, which would put the number of layoffs at about 300, but it is likely 6,100 is a conservative figure.[/quote:2363ca6531]

    Conserative Figure, so it could be more :(

    They probably weren’t working hard enough :(

    Sounds like more of a restructuring, so no death knell for the industry yet…
