Xbox LIVE Game Room developer Krome might have experienced yet another round of lay-offs. IGN's recent report on the matter states that, allegedly, around 30 people were handed pink slips "overnight." AusGamers is hearing something else: the Australia-based developer's staff was allegedly cut by more than fifty people due to its inability to maintain the license to develop the Wii version of Star Wars: The Force Unleashed 2 -- a direct result, allegedly, of poor review scores and such.

If true the news is true, this is definitely one of those "bummer" stories. We'll put a word in with Krome and will hope for the best to all those who may or may not be affected by these supposed layoffs.
