THQ is in an increasingly-overcrowded video game market and relies primarily on TV and movie license-driven content, which historically has produced poor products and low revenues. Its chief liability is its comparative lack of exposure to online gaming. Its one saving grace may be the Warhammer 40K license, which may improve once more details of the forthcoming movie Ultramarines are announced, but all indications point to a limited-release or straight-to-DVD release, which would be a serious waste of a potentially lucrative license. This suggests to me a management mentality favoring short-term profits and an inability to fuly develop the potential of their intellectual capital.
