This story has been overstated through the media.

Sandi is leaving of her own accord as she is relocating to New York City and pursuing other options. Although she will be missed, we are confident that our search for a replacement will yield great results that will to further our initiatives in this space.

We have no plans to change our strategy in the videogame arena and no other employees are affected as a result of such.
