Mass. High Tech reports the pitcher turned online game tycoon is looking to move his company from Maynard to Rhode Island.
Like the job UHub is doing? Consider a contribution. Thanks!
It's interesting that he is in talks with Rhode Island government officials. Could the conservative Republican Schilling be asking for government money/subsidies?
Yes, he is. Rhode Island is apparently willing to subsidize 25% of his production costs, just like we do for films. Apparently, Curt Schilling has now found a wasteful government welfare program that he likes. Maybe that's because it taxes the rest of us to subsidize the affluent?
Better to develop vaporware in RI, I suppose.
So who cares if he moves his stupid company out of Mass? The sooner we rid ourselves of him we can start working on getting rid of our new slime bag senator.
EA Studios signs publishing deal with 38 Studios
Electronic Arts Inc. (NASDAQ: ERTS) today announced an agreement with 38 Studios, LLC to publish the company's first video game, an epic single-player role-playing game codenamed 'Project Mercury'. 38 Studios is the creative enterprise of World Series MVP and avid gamer Curt Schilling. 'Project Mercury' is being developed at Big Huge Games, a wholly-owned subsidiary of 38 Studios.
Soooo, basically, anyone who knows video games knows that 38 Studios has already sold-out and the game is going to be a steaming pile of crap because EA is now involved and will:
1) force the game out the door before it's ready,
2) water down the content to extract the maximum amount of dollars per player from it,
3) rape the company for its best talent, leave no one of talent to create new content, and then fire all of the support staff that makes an MMORPG into a *community*,
4) and ultimately take what might have been a shining star and drag it through the mud in order to try and make it as World of Warcraft-like as possible...except nowhere near as good as Blizzard has done.
So who cares where the offices are going to be. They won't need them after launch anyways.
