"the company's loss was exacerbated by poor sales by Sony Corp (SNE) of its new PlayStation 3 computer console. The games maker said that it believed the Sony PS3 would take longer to succeed than originally forecast, unless Sony was to cut its prices for the console. As a result, SCi Entertainment increased its provision against expenditure on PS3 products from GBP4 million to GBP13.8 million, worsening its net loss for the year."

These guys make Tomb raider and bought Edios last year.

Damn... this doesn't sound bode well for a Carmageddon sequel. :(

Someone needs to buy the rights to that game before its buried in all this crap.

There is so much potential for an awesome game with today's technology.

If these guys go under and are sitting on the Carmageddon name we'll probably never see another one...

They should just sell the IP now.

I must be alone in saying that I thought the Carmageddon series blew chunks... What was so special about it?

Carmageddon 2 was the only decent one IMO. It had good gameplay, early game physics, and was gory for it's time.

The article says there are a few companies wanting to buy them out.

I wouldn't say it's the best today. I would put the Burnout and Flatout series way above it.

games like twisted metal are action racing games
games like Burnout are arcade racing games
