THQ wins WWE royalty dispute

After an inhumanly long period of butting heads with partner Jakks Pacific, THQ has finally prevailed, according to Gamasutra.

The in-fight was waged over a contract dispute, which has now, obviously, been ironed out. An arbitrator gave the nod to THQ, saying that Jakks is now entitled to six percent of sales from WWE wrasslin’ games — a significantly smaller chunk of change when compared to the ten percent it received before the dispute.

With that out of the way, it’s all peace, love, and dove between the corporate tag-team partners, right? Nuh-uh. Jakks and THQ are now trading lawsuits over WWE contract extensions.

And that, children, is where videogames come from.
