I just checked out <a href="http://finance.yahoo.com/q?s=IPLYE.OB">IPLYE.OB</a> over at <A href="http://finance.yahoo.com/">Yahoo Finance</a> and noticed that shares of the company are now trading at <b>3.5 cents per share</b>, which is the lowest it's ever traded at to date.
<br>
<br>
Looks like <b>Herve</b>'s master plan to get <a href="http://www.interplay.com">Interplay</A> back up and running is working swimmingly. Just for kicks, that means <b>Herve</b> has lost around <b>$135,000</b> on his purchase of 9M shares back in April.

I like the link to interplay's dead webpage. Nice touch. I personally won't be happy until Herve loses everything, but $135,000 is a good start.

Eh, someone just bought 40k shares and pushed it back up to 4.2 cents. So, Herve's only lost $72k now. Pity. Still, 3.5 cents a share is the lowest it's ever been.

I thought IPLAY was delisted from the NYSE like 5 years ago? Whatever. I hope Herve and the rest of the idiots that destroyed Black Isle go down in flames and lose more than their stock options. I'm thinking blacklisted from ever working in a white collar job would be a good start.

It's delisted. Oh, and the fact that it's called IPLYE and not IPLY is because they didn't file with the SEC yet.

Right. The full symbol for IPLY is now IPLYE.OB. The "OB" is because they got kicked off NASDAQ, and the "E" is because they're delinquent in filing their earnings report for Q1 2004.

Frowning at my monitor as I read your dumb post.
Imagine if they had foolished abandoned their plan to develop for consoles and cancel PC franchises? I'm sure they would be in worse place.

Fallout 3 would never have come close to the staggering 19k units of FOBOS for the Xbox that got sold.

Caen is a real man of genius!
