    That's my guess. The company can't sell them. They're crap. Introduced at $30, a month later marked down to $10, now $5, they are not selling. They probably have thousands of these games in inventory and unless they pay people to take 'em, they're not moving. Unless you donate them to the troops for the write-off.

    A year ago the company (LFBG) was listed above $7 a share. It is now a penny stock and their most recent filing says that it is questionable if they can remain a going concern. In 5 years they have lost over $30 million. Gross sales in that time were just above $6 million.

    The product itself was a buggy mess with a poor engine and worse graphics. Oh, and the story line was somewhere between pathetic and insulting. A hard sell to the religious folk just back from howling about the evils of Grand Theft Auto.

    Don't worry, the troops won't play this game.

      Is inflicting Stephen Baldwin on those poor Iraqis, haven't they suffered enough already?

      and several other dominionists. They sucked in a few other investors but the main loss was expected and will be used as a major writeoff.

      It was also sold in bulk through the steeplejacked churches.
