In an effort to describe the revitalization of the Atari brand CEO David Gardner may have been a little too enthusiastic. Not content with merely shifting paradigms and brainstorming outside the box it appears he wishes to operate with Al Qaeda-like efficiency. So expect a bunch of games no one really cares about and one spectacular games about once every ten years???

"My goal is not to go head on with EA and Activision Blizzard were the terrorist organisation here, he offered. Were going to go much faster into the future than anyone else because were small."

No doubt, the new nimble Atari hates freedom.

We shall see how massacre chasers like Jack Thompson try to spin this one.

from gamepolitics.com

"The suit alleges that Thompsons public nuisance tactic essentially violates Take Twos First Amendment rights. Lawyers for the game publisher argue that the Florida statute under which Thompson is seeking to have the games declared as nuisances essentially makes the controversial lawyer a private attorney general on behalf of the State of Florida.
