In a financial announcement for the fourth quarter of last year, it was revealed
that Midway lost nearly $100 million total last year.
The results for the full fiscal year showed net revenues of $157.2 million, compared to $165.6 million for the year before. That left a loss of a massive $97.4 million, which translates to $1.07 per share. This is a growth on the 2006 losses of $77.8 million.
"We were delighted to bring an eager fan base the PS3 version of Unreal Tournament 3 within the fiscal year, and the consumer response to a number of our casual offerings such as Game Party for the Wii and Touchmaster for the DS was encouraging,
" commented David F. Zucker, president and CEO in a public statement.
"Now that we have overcome many of the technology hurdles that we encountered over the last year, we anticipate smoother launches as we release our strong 2008 line-up.
Let's hope so, eh?
