Electronic Arts 2Q Financials - BF3 Ships 10M

Electronic Arts 2Q financial reporting shows increased losses on increased revenue, and were followed by word that EA is raising its forecast for the fourth quarter, in part based on the strong launch of Battlefield 3 (according to the detailed pdf-format report found by VG247) we're talking 10 million units). Word is:

The net loss in the three-month period ending on Sept. 30 grew to $340 million, or $1.03 per share. Last year, the company had a quarterly loss of $201 million, or 61 cents per share. EA said costs for marketing, research and development increased from last year.

Excluding stock compensation costs, acquisition expenses and other costs, adjusted earnings came to 5 cents per share, beating the adjusted loss of 4 cents per share expected by analysts polled by FactSet.

I still can't play BF2 because Punkbuster kicks me out every 15 seconds. Did they fix that?

Yes but only if you install Punkbuster after installing BF3.

edit: configure and update it for BF3.

Yeah, it was nice to see they posted a prominent notice on battlelog detailing how to manually update punkbuster. I got the "kicked by administrator" bug on one server, if not for that notice I would have just assumed I was getting kicked to make room for clan members.

It's incredible that after sooo many years they still can't get punkbuster to autoupdate, check for the newest version, or give useful error messages reliably. But at least the update worked and only took a couple minutes.

Jesus. I was kidding. I didn't think that they could actually still be having those problems.

I was getting kicked at the end of rounds, and had also assumed that I was just being removed to make room. I did the update though, just to be sure, and suddenly I can play more than one round on a server.

The AA vehicles, with a secondary missile, are lethal. I may not be able to fly worth a damn, so I'm gonna make sure no one else can either.
