Report: THQ Cutting 170

Calabasas-based videogame developer THQ has reportedly cut 170 of its employees, according to reports Wednesday. According to reports on gaming sites, the cuts are expected to be announced along with THQ's earnings tomorrow. The report of the cuts apparently came via gaming insider Kevin Dent. If true, the layoffs would not be a surprise for the firm, which said just last week that it would be paring its efforts in kids games, completely exiting the area to focus instead on its core gamers.
