Thats a fantasy land like defense force comment :P
Nah, I have zero intention to defend CDRP. I don't even like their games very much.
You are looking at the surface only, the sales number. Are you aware that there stock value went down by a decent amount because of this situation? This has directly affected the shareholders / investor interest in the company. After big releases companies expect a rise in the market cap, not the opposite.
I do believe a strong message was delivered to the industry. But I didn't say that the industry was forever changed by that.
