    It was also announced by Pixologic (makers of ZBrush) that Tomas Petterson (creator of Sculptris) will be joining their team. http://www.sculptris.com/story.html

    guess pressure of competition became a thread to them.
    Buy up your enemies ,break the toy, and stay the biggest. That's how Corel messed up Paint Shop pro and Xara
    Just say: "Rage It", because we already know it's art.

    I doubt that Sculptris is seen as a threat to ZB. It seems Pixo wants to incorporate the Sculptris technology into ZB and develop it further, not destroy it. They've also hired Tomas to join their team. Whether Sculptris will continue to exist in its present form (read "free") as a standalone app, is another matter entirely...

    Exactly, one competitor less. And if they start selling it, they gain also.
    Corel didn't destroy the software either.... They made it Corel...
