2. Re: EA Financials Jul 26, 2011, 21:59 Dev
My heart bleeds for EA. Poor babies lost $123 million, almost twice as much as this quarter previous year.

From TFA:
Wedbush analyst Michael Pachter
WTF is a wedbush analyst?
Edit: nm, its the name of the company he works for.

Link to actual EA quarterly info:

The GAAP info shows that EA had $221 million profit instead of a loss, wonder why the huge difference.

Also the digital sales amount is almost half of total sales if you use non-GAAP numbers, and almost a quarter of total sales if you use GAAP numbers.
I'd been figuring that digital sales made up something like half of PC sales, and those figures are good indicators for that.

EA cites 2 million portal 2 sales, which are going to be boxed only sales (valve uses EA for publishing retail boxed versions), which is very interesting to me.
Just recently Gabe reported 3 million sales. So if EA handles all boxed retail sales, that means that portal 2 sold about 1 million digital steam PC sales.
