This Is Why Midway Is Totally Screwed

Midway filed for bankruptcy yesterday. Grim news, but it's also a bit...vague. It's hard to tell from mere words just how badly the house of Mortal Kombat is faring. So let's use numbers instead.

Short on alternate bedtime reading, GamePolitics have combed through the court records surrounding yesterday's move and found the the list of people Midway owe money to. And how much they owe. It's grim reading, particularly if you're in any way involved with Wells Fargo Bank.
