From info I've seen from these links THQ has cancelled their 2014 line up and is currently existing for the purpose of trying to find buyers.

If THQ ended up going out of business, may be disappointing to lose some titles (WWE, Saints Row, etc) unless another company picks them up. But honestly, it wouldn't surprise me. I'm around THQ WWE forums and honestly, they get a lot of bad rep in customer service. Everything from releasing unfinished titles, to very slow fixes, etc.

Peoples been asking for EA or any other big company to take over the license to the yearly WWE releases... if this is true they might get their wish.

EA is a horrible gaming company so you'd better hope they don't take over. They have made some great games in the past like LotR Return of the King, but their service is lousy as hell. They're the ones that created and implemented the online pass thing.

So if I buy it used, I have to be penalized? Online passes, once again, need to be abolished. EA, you fucking make me sick.

I see. Guess it didn't matter to me as online doesn't mean much anyway.

EW basically said it all. They wanted to make the obvious method of buying EA games cheap as hell used a less viable option. I mean, if you look at just about all the EA sports games, their prices drop the fastest of any games in the stores.

I dont fuck with sports games almost one hundred percent (not a fan of pretty much any sports game, so really ea doesnt see much money from me hahahaha), dont buy to many brand new games (unless its something i definitely want first day, here's looking at u collectors edition of infamous 2, god of war 3, and collectors edition of bioshock 2 hehehe), and dont go online all that often either, so that online pass drivel hardly even occurs in my life period....hurray.....i guess lol

I don't buy much in sports either. Pretty much WWE... which is THQ, so EA is getting jack shit from me in that area. lol Started to get into hunting games though to.

There are links somewhere on GameFAQ's and THQ.com, but I can't be bothered to find it.

Anyway it seems THQ's stock has been under a $1 for a while, at 70 cents. I read they have 10 days left (from whenever the link was posted, less now) to get their stock back above $1 or they are going to be delisted.

I'm don't know what delisted is or means, I know very little about stock. But I guess it can't be good.

NASDAQ will remove THQ from their stock if they don't go over a dollar.
