HP spokeswoman Marlene Somsak said it would be "incorrect" to say HP is shutting down Voodoo, but didn't offer a denial that jobs will be or have been cut.
"We continually assess and rebalance the size of our work force relative to the business environment and market conditions," she said. Beyond that, she said HP had no comment.
Seems a costly loss and a heck of a label to loose if ya ask me. Considering Hp's only real offering the gaming branch is the blackbird.
I don't know anyone who even owns a boutique shop PC, but killing off VoodooPC seems like a bad idea.
"Everyone always wants new things. Everybody likes new inventions, new technology. People will never be replaced by machines. In the end, life and business are about human connections. And computers are about trying to murder you in a lake. And to me, the choice is easy." - Michael Scott (The Office)
It would be very sad. Voodoo is been one of the greats for a long time.
HP probably realized they can take higher end machines off their standard production line, inflate the price, slap a label on them that says "VoodooPC", and most people won't know the difference.
What part of "Ph'nglui mglw'nafh Cthulhu R'lyeh wgah'nagl fhtagn" don't you understand?
Yeah it would be sad to see the Voodoo go away I use to have a couple of Voodoo cards long time ago and they were huge!
