Bummer news about Amazon's games division – another round of layoffs, including shutting down Crown Channel and Game Growth. I get the business move towards Prime Gaming, but it sucks for the folks losing their jobs.

It seems like I can’t help but have questions about the challenges in the gaming industry and the balance between profitability and sustaining a creative, diverse gaming landscape.
