It's been another busy week in the gaming world. Topping the news was the announcement that game designer Will Wright is leaving Electronic Arts to head up his entertainment think tank, Stupid Fun Club, full-time. Elsewhere, Take-Two may have another hit on its hands -- this time in downloadable form. Microsoft will extend Xbox 360 warranties, and a report from InStat predicts the console maker will rake in a wad of cash as its number of online gaming subscriptions continues to grow.
