Mickey Mouse outfit fires gaming staff

Scrooge McDuck orders layoffs

Walt Disney is preparing to lay off several hundred people in its interactive unit, the division that includes gaming products and the Disney.com website.

The layoffs are expected to begin after Disney releases its quarterly earnings on Wednesday. Playdom, a social gaming business Disney acquired in 2010, is one division expected to see firings. 

Disney is trying to turn around the interactive unit, which has about 3,000 employees. Its new Infinity video game had strong initial sales after its release last August, helping the division report a $16 million profit for the quarter that ended in September, and an improvement from the $76 million loss a year earlier.

A Disney spokeswoman did not comment, but then it is about to issue its results so she was unlikely to do so.
