Former Atari CEO Bruno Bonnell received 3 million Euros ($4.76 million)
for running the company into the ground
to leave the company
last year. GameDaily
reports Bonnell was apparently given the package by Infogrames
-- which was a majority shareholder at the time -- without Atari's management receiving a copy of the agreement until two months after the deal was done.
Of course, this is a ghost from Atari
, not the new incarnation we're slowly getting to know
. We just like this story because, frankly, we're jealous. We want $4.76 million for throwing a company into financial ruin
... heck, we'll settle for a $100 bucks and a free round of drinks at the pub.
