EA CEO on the Hot Seat?

A story on Reuters quotes a number of industry analysts suggesting CEO of Electronic Arts John Riccitiello is facing "growing negative sentiment" from shareholders, as EA share value has dropped 70% during Riccitiello's tenure, and fell 8% Tuesday after having risen only 2.7% in the past year. In contrast, Activision's shares rose 17% in the past year, Take-Two Interactive shares rose 35%, and THQ Inc rose 8%. They quote several industry analysts outlining investor concerns, though parting remarks from Wedbush Morgan analyst Michael Pachter indicate he thinks strong March and June quarters will save EA management from the chopping block: "I think their lineup is going to save them."

It figures - a new CEO tries to fix some of what is so very wrong with EA and the shareholders revolt. Obviously, EA should go back to the same draconian practices that made them the most hated publisher in the business, producing games I wouldn't even steal. Yeah, let's go back to that model, it will save me quite a bit of money.
