Empire acquisition gets closer

More names are associated with possible Empire buyout. SCi is emerging as the most likely candidate. Grabbing dominant market share by buying out competition is the oldest trick in the CEO book of “Ways to make money”. Let’s hope that further game industry consolidation in U.K. will eventually lead into continuous game industry evolution and not just inefficient monopoly stagnation.

One more thing, it really pisses me off to read about how SCi managed to turn around the faltering Eidos. Eidos had good product slate and they just needed money to monetize their titles - SCi brought money to the mix and magical potion was ready to be served for investors.
