[Video Games] French video games companies are struggling
Since Electronic Arts took a 20% shared of Ubi Soft (a french video game editor), there has been huge complaints from the french government/industry. I think the NYT made a clear point about this:
Splinter Cell, a popular video game based on Tom Clancy's action thriller novels. Would-be Sam Fishers, joysticks at the ready, may be surprised to learn that the company that developed and published the game is based in France. Even odder, perhaps, is the notion that a game celebrating the free rein of United States secret agents may be seen as a French cultural treasure.
