In a move that may have ties to a slow start for the PS3, Sony Computer Entertainment Europe said in an internal memo that as many as 160 employees may be fired.

"SCEE has successfully faced a number of challenges throughout its history to become a leader of the videogame industry. However our industry is in the middle of a transition where some of the fundamentals of our business are changing," says the letter. "Regrettably, we must also now look at the possibility of making compulsory redundancies in the UK offices, in WWS studios in Europe and in our territory offices," it continues. I'd like to offer my condolences to anyone who turns out to be deemed by Sony as a "compulsory redundancy".

Maybe you should head to the US, considering you were already making much less in the UK.
