“The goal is to reduce [that], and put more emphasis on making our brands bigger and to release them more often, with very high quality,”

That doesn't make a *bleep*ing sense.
-Reduce money
-Release more often
-Very high quality
-expect a bigger brand

Now tell me if it's possible to connect these 4 points into a conclusion that he thinks that way the games would be better, what an asshole.

UBISOFT is not how it was , calls him self "we make on time AAA games", bullshit AAA , HAWX could be a lot better but it isn't cause it lacks of support and polishing , the campaign is short too. It could be a superior air combat game that i love ,but it doesn't have that feel , and they say to it an "AAA" game. this is just BS ; EA at least admits it has crap games , but this is just ridicolous.

That's what's wrong with companies that think a single licenced game of super successed film is about to sell as much as it , it's NOT going to , 90% of who watched the film aren't even gamers , and for the record , who the heck would buy a game from the film , it's nice , but it has to be A GAME that you make a MOVIE from. UBISOFT just makes good quality games cause they pump funds into them , but the basics are still the same , corporate idiotism, non-experienced decisionmakers and capitalist business guys alike. Look, why the heck spiderman and batman games sell so much ... just pumping funds into the game and think it's going to be a super succes is just pointless and that's what ubisoft did and does a lot of times. It's a movie adaption that's why , and now they're going to invest less to ALL licenced games they do , that doesn't mean only movie based games btw

I think by reducing money they mean reduce their spending on games based on movies and spend it on stuff like HAWX, Prince of Persia, etc.

My guess why some people don't play movie based games? The plot. In almost all other games you unveil the full story as you play, which adds mystique and a level of reward for getting far into a game. With a movie based game the general plot is well known, there's nothing to drive curiosity. That's how it is for me anyway. It doesn't help that they have to release the game on schedule with the movie, so there's no room for error and polish if things go wrong.

Yes , but that doesn't mean that chunk of funds will go to the games they do , but it would be really nice , since HAWX is a great game but it's not having that true feel on the PC , it's a multiplatformer so that's what is not making it even bigger the game could be , I mean , they make an excelent idea but just the business model ruins a good game. You get a bit deeper into it , you have stuff , but it's really low on customizations ... no console , weak multiplayer balance, no landings and takeoffs , weather/environiment effects on the gameplay , story is a bit too classic "evil business villains" you just play the action part which is only good for those xbox 13olds who watch diehard reruns and get their fix , and really low on the details , you either lose or win , mose and cat games can go for hours and nobody even damages it self , also the multiplayer upgrades are stupid in mid air , it's like those MW2 perks which *bleep* up the gameplay , it's clearly an xbox targeted game that's why HAWX on PC can't compare to the older chapions. ... and the assistance modes are really out of context , you have some godlike camera that improves your cornering and dodging missles(it activates a scalar that does this , and controls are really wacky too, you can't lock the camera to absolute , it's always relative to the aircraft) I mean HAWX is a wasted winner , i hope next one gets a bit more rich with features.

Why im saying this ,cause I love air combat games , i wish HAWX would be like it sice there wasn't a game in this genre for many years
