Company: Gizmondo Games

In October 2005, a newspaper report was released in Sweden linking multiple high ranking staff at Tiger Telematics, the company that made the Gizmondo game console, to the Uppsalamaffian, a Swedish mafia. The report singled out Stefan Eriksson, a prominent figure in the console's development, as the leader of the mafia until he became involved with the Gizmondo, and having received at least 2 prison sentences beforehand. On the same month that the Gizmondo was discontinued in Feburary 2006, Eriksson crashed a Ferrari in California so hard that it tore in half, with the investigation into the crash landing Eriksson behind bars again, and eventually deporting him back to Sweden to face repercussions for additional crimes committed there.
