'Sony' and 'trust' don't go in the same sentence, EVER.

I still remember when Sony shutdown www.lik-sang.com despite Sony bosses buying stuff from the site. They got each Sony localisation unit (e.g. Sony UK, Sony Germany, Sony USA etc.) to sue Lik-Sang at the same time. Unsuprisingly Lik-Sang couldn't afford to fight 40 or so legal disputes at the same time and were forced out of business.

Yeah, but having Psygnosis staff split between 20 other divisions isn't the same thing.

It's like Ed and Tim Stamper (founders of Ultimate Play The Game, which eventually became Rare) and the other main guys at Rare being split amongst other divisions (or creating their own). They create their best work when they are together as one team.

Sony isn't the only company killing game studios. Electronic Arts has been doing it for the past 20 years or so - Bullfrog (Theme Park) and Westwood Studios (Command and Conquer) spring to mind. Infogrames has started doing it too
