What makes these layoffs odd is that New Vegas was an unbridled success, outselling Fallout3; I read it sold 5 million units in the first month. Even with the Alpha Protocol flop, you would think Obsidian would have enough working capital to avoid these layoffs.

Well, lucky you! Obsidian has a habit of releasing buggy, albeit great, games.
Many, including myself, have had constant crashes to desktop since the games release.
Personally, I cannot play New Vegas for 30 minutes without a CTD… on both Win7-64b and WinXP-32b PCs, although XP seems slightly more stable. This is frustrating because I love the game. I should note that I haven’t had a chance to try the latest 1.3 patch, but early reports are not good.
