EA and Take-Two Financials

EA Announces a New CFO and releases its Q1 results for fiscal year 2013, showing slightly lower than expected losses on USD $201 million in earnings. Take-Two reports their results as well showing losses on weaker than expected sales of Max Payne 3 and Spec Ops: The Line, though optimistic word from their post-earnings (losses) conference call says that Borderlands 2 is the "third most pre-ordered game in Take Two history (behind two GTA games)." MarketWatch offers some analysis of the news.

Not surprised about MP3 and Spec Ops selling less than expected. I've said it before and I'll say it again: people are getting tired of completely linear and scripted shooters. I expect Metro: Last Light will sell below expectations as well. Same with Homefront 2.

I hope not. I mean sure get tired all you want of mindless "action" games like CoD and BF3's singleplayers but I wouldn't want to see the Half-Lifes, Bioshocks, and Max Paynes disappear. If something has a story to tell in an interesting world (I know I'm stretching it for MP) I want to experience it. I kind of think of them as Adventure games but with a different perspective and gun... Penumbra is right inbetween.
