i actually hope some of them do go belly up. so many mass produced shit games in an industry that fails to support them.
look at all the small indi games that are making them companies lots of money now, via steam and other online delivery methods. the old system would never support them or allow them to succeed - without massive profits they'd just get shut down by the big boys.
