Welcome to Microsoft Pri0: That's Microspeak for top priority, and that's the news and observations you'll find here from Seattle Times technology reporter Matt Day.

ArenaNet escapes the ax

Korean video game publisher NCsoft laid off 70 employees from its Austin, Texas, location and announced restructuring plans last month. That’s about a 23 percent staff reduction, and has called into question the success of the company’s “City of Heroes” and “City of Villains” games.

I’ve been wondering about any impact on Bellevue-based ArenaNet, which is a subsidiary of NCSoft. Spokeswoman Jenny Bendel said the reduction has had no effect on operations or personnel there. ArenaNet debuted the “Guild Wars” game last year and released a second game in the series in April.
