There is a difference between losing money and not making as much money as you projected. They are not the same thing. EA didn't make as much as they had projected, but were well above the red line for profits. They aren't losing money.
Regardless, even if they were losing money it wouldn't be because of SWtoR. That games subscriber base is over double what it needs to be to maintain a profit. Are you retarded?
EA is the top producer. There is no one bigger. More proof that you don't know what the hell you're talking about.
Yea, let's start nitpicking to hide the fact that they are down at the bottom. And their 2011 Annual Report showed red bottom line. Conveniently, anyone at the bottom would be making lots of money. Woo. The bigger you are, the harder you fall. Lmao at TOR has double the sub base to maintain a profit, nope 500k sub base (what you're alluding at, and what most P2P MMO consider as) is for an MMORPG that cost 1/5 of what TOR cost to maintain a profit. RIFT is what they call profitability, even if its sub base is much lower they also cost a lot less than TOR.
Let me repeat this again so it can get through to you: EA fall is the worst in the industry. Period. Unless you want to compare to THQ, since it's really encouraging to compare to someone who is on the verge of dying to feel good. Speaking of THQ, they made similar mistakes for example with Homefront, a 2.3m sales brand new IP that ended up closing down the Studio developed it.
SE dint launch nothing big since November ? Really ? FFXIII-2, OBLUCT, The 3rd birthday, FF Zero, Birth by sleep final mix, Dungeon siege III, Dissadia 012 etc etc
Nope no big tittles....
Big titles for Japan maybe, they don't have much presence in the West. Much less the attempt to compete with something called Activision (let's pretend for a second there that BF3 aint competing with MW3, nor TOR trying to compete with WoW at all) and end up being *cough* at the bottom while your no.1 competitor in your homeground (namely Activision) is at the very top. That is just pure promising.
Even if you consider those titles as big launch for SE, then it just means SE performed hella better than EA because they fell 33% less than EA (30% vs 40%, hello~)
And while you people continue to defend EA, their stock price continue to fall. Edited, Jun 26th 2012 1:25am by Khornette Edited, Jun 26th 2012 1:26am by Khornette
