Top 5 reasons to deploy VMware with Tegile

Gameplay has cut the Internet connection to its London office to prevent employees leaking news about today's massive number of redundancies, according to sources close to the company.

It's a desperate move by Gameplay management and one that is likely to backfire on those who reckon it's a worthwhile ploy to "keep the staff quiet".

Yesterday, El Reg reported that Gameplay was set to announce jobs cuts today. Despite repeated attempts to speak to Gameplay the best we got was some bunny slamming the phone down on us.

A mass meeting of employees has been called today for 10.00am (GMT) where they will be told what is happening to the company.

We'll let you know if we hear anything else. ®
