Could many developers even afford to pay for overtime? Some companies are really suffering. Throw in who knows much more money and that could be the final nail in the coffin.[/quote:0d54a6dbea]
Well, companies like EA could.
Of course smaller companies may not be able to, but usually with smaller companies the workers are more willing to work overtime for nothing because they feel a part of the company as a whole and have an interest in seeing it grow.
Having said that, they should get some sort of reward for their efforts, and I don’t mean a patronising pat on the back either.
