What are some companies that take a gargantuan shit on their former employees?

Any Japanese company ever. It's the business politics there.

Konami did literally nothing wrong

Just when Hideo thought Konami can't hurt him more, there goes Konami lmao, savage.

You're reading too negatively towards that pic related OP. Konami consists of many people and maybe not all of them dislike Kojima.

You're right on some points but they are not "switching" anything and there's nothing bold or risky about the move they are making. Konami is already in gambling and other ventures, and already makes the majority of their revenue from divisions outside video games.

They're just choosing to stop focusing on this one area altogether which is a significant, but not majority portion of their revenue. It sucks for people who were fans of their games but it's not the suicidal lunacy that people seem to want it to be.

I think they're actually angry that it sold so well - they would have preferred slightly disappointing but still profitable sales numbers. Konami is burning all their bridges to force a permanent focus on gambling and non-vidya, and their biggest game flopping would have justified the decision.

Who cares if MGSV was 50 million?
The money that single game made surpassed any development costs.

Konami should had gambled more.
Instead they lost an opportunity to make even more money with the MGS franchise and Silent Hill.

Mobile games/gambling business aren't going to make any money for Konami because that market is flooded with other products that are more mainstream than anything Konami can poop out.

....wtf is wrong with people? I hope I never become successful enough that when I die idiots will use my intellectual property to claim whatever opinion they want on me.
