Gamasutra is reporting that the layoffs will help the company save$5 million dollars. Even though sales of specialty controllers were up over last year, it seems that Rock Band peripherals didn’t move as anticipated.

Rob's been gaming since he was a wee lad. It all started with a NES, and a Super Mario Bros./Duck Hunt combo cart one Christmas morning. Since then, he's been an avid lover of all things video. He also likes comics, manga, movies, long walks on the beach, candlelit dinners and dogs. Rob is also quite adept at speaking in the third person.
