Symantec won't be the only one to get hit with a suit of this type.

God no, a net profit would attract tax. Its the first thing accountants teach you not to do.

The really sad part is that the accountants used all of their tricks to make the numbers they reported as good as these. The truth would probably cause most stockholders to sell every share of EA they have.

It's not irrelevant if you're running a game studio...

It is because it only tells the retail sales part of the story and that for only three markets. This is almost as good as one of Pachter's "predictions".

After all that 3D Realms has done, and more importantly what they have not, I don't think Scott Miller should be telling anyone how to use their money.
EA should not look to acquire anything other than a profit, something that has eluded them for quite some time.

Courtney Love getting a complete and coherent sentence out would be miraculous, so I doubt she said anything of the sort directly, but what she babbled may have been interpreted as her now saying Cobain would have been cool with GH5.

Nah, I don't need a sandbox to have fun... sandbox is overrated. They learned a lot transitioning from Mass Effect 1 to Mass Effect 2, and hopefully they do the same with Dragon Age 2.

That would be criminal.

I just hope they don't do to Dragon Age what they did to Mass Effect.

Desperate times call for desperate measures, yes, but even this measure is not desperate enough to work.

They value development for its own sake, rather than just trying to put something in a box and relying on marketing for sales

This is the part EA has continued to get wrong for the last three years. It's why EA has continued to lose money and why they will continue to lose money. Yes, they have a few (very few) titles that sell well, but those few fail to make up for the preponderance of crap that EA shovels out on an annual basis.

No more Ubi for me. This is about as retarded as it gets.

If the service is only necessary when you start the game, why do you need to have an active Internet connection for the entire time you are playing?

Maybe they should look into automated unit testing tools to handle this stuff for them, since their game is so big and complex. Puh-leez! That has to be the lamest excuse for a bug that I've heard in 20 years as a programmer.

PhysX does not show up in screenshots. It is a physics system, not an imaging system. You can't see physics in a static image.

Given the results of Spiderman 3, I wouldn't want Raimi to do anything game-related until after he has redeemed himself from that rancid turd of a movie. It made money, yes, but it sucked donkey balls compared to the first two Spiderman films.
