Midway might be in trouble. Last week three high-ranking officials left the company thanks to a very poor performance in the last financial quarter, and now Midway's Austin studio is laying off anywhere from 90 to 130 employees, and canceling Criminal, a game that was first reported to be in development two years ago.

In a press release, Midway assured the media that the studio will stay open, and these layoffs are a result of the cancelation of the game, not vice versa. Add this to the list of things shaking up the videogame industry from the inside out. We'll keep you posted if anything more develops.

If anyone asks us for a Fool's Gold (starring Kate Hudson and Matthew McConaughey) movie night, we'll pass...along with 2K Games founder Ken Levine. Speaking with Videogaming247 about the upcoming film adaptation of BioShock, Levine said:

“You’re always going to be worried that in that first meeting [the film producers are] going to be, like, ‘OK, it’s Kate Hudson and Matthew McConaughey on a desert island hunting for pirate treasure,’ but it’s not going to go that way."

Pirates of the Caribbean director Gore Verbinski is currently on the seat for the movie. According to Levine, Verbinski actually "gets" the BioShock franchise. “My expectation at this time, from everything that I’ve heard, is that it will very much honour the dramatic and thematic elements of the game… They certainly understand the material and are able to provide a stamp of their own.”

Prince of Persia's big screen debut has been pushed back a year by Walt Disney Pictures. The Jerry Bruckheimer-produced film was originally set for a June 2009 release. Bruckheimer, who produced Pirates of the Caribbean, said that the movie will be inspired by all Prince of Persia video game titles.

Prince of Persia: Sands of Time is directed by Mike Newell, who did Harry Potter and The Goblet of Fire, and will be starring Jake Gyllenhaal as the prince himself. However, the prince's next-gen video game console debut from Ubisoft, Prince of Persia, is still set to be released this November for the Xbox 360, Playstation 3 and PC. Check out some gameplay footage after the cut.

Call it "blowing things out of proportion", but we're huge fans of Casino Royale and if there's any news or gossip about 007's latest mission in Quantum of Solace, we're all ears...or eyes. When BBC reported about R&B Sensation Alicia Keys and Raconteurs front man Jack White recording the new Bond theme song, they may have written a phrase that links to Daniel Craig's first film as Bond. Of course, you have to click the link to find out (and we're not splling anything from the first film).
