Story of my life. I'm almost always the 5% (or less) that doesn't care, isn't interested, or is unaffected. Reality shows is a great example. People watch that stuff, really? I'd rather be at the dentist.

Why do they keep referring to Battlefield Premium as a "subscription?" Every single time they talk about it, they call it a subscription, but it's just a one-time purchase. Is this wording they use to make their shareholders feel better?

It's a sign of what's coming

We know the simcity sales now. 1.6 million. Pretty big seller for a PC game. Not huge, but big.
I wonder how much better sales would have been without the crappy launch and some (immho) pretty awful design decisions (for what has always been a single-player PC game).

Probably significantly better. I know I would have bought a copy if the pre-launch info wasn't so terrible.

I wouldnt doubt its mostly EA tactics, because the game is free. They sell doughnuts which buys you things and speeds up wait time which can be up to 24hrs, and usually is. They turn off confirm doughnut use by default. Then, when your tapping away, a use doughnut button will appear right under where your finger, if you have none a buy doughnut button will appear at the same place. if your not paying attention or in a hurry you could tap yourself into the poor house. Thankfully a slight pause for the 3rd party confirmation for using real money saved me from spending any of mine.

those simcity sales figures are pretty low imo. tomb raider sold 4 million and they were complaining that it didn't meet expectations. for a maxis game they squandered a shit ton of revenue with the fucked up execution of simcity. look at how many titles the sims have sold. let alone the profits from all the xpacks/dlc.

and the sports franchises i'll never understand. how you go to a walmart in the USA and they're always sold out of Madden. i'll never understand those people, but apparently EA does? just seems like the same schlock as Activision pushing out a new garbage CoD title every year and it making fortunes.

"We sold 14.5 million units of a FIFA game that was basically last year's game with updates uniforms. We did roughly the same for just about every other sports game. We sold absolute shitloads of games on the iOs market. Battlefield Premium, which is literally air, generated 120 million in revenue, and our digital net revenue continues to grow by double digits every year.

"We are unable to make a profit."

I suspect SimCity will continue to sell for quite some time, just like every other Sim game. Its lifetime sales will likely be at least 5-6 million (not including the inevitable expansions). If the game were available on Steam and didn't have worthless DRM, it would have likely sold 2-3 million by now.

"EA's Origin™ platform for downloading digital games and services has registered over 47 million users". Hell, even I'm a "registered user", since I was forced to make an EA account to play games on my Xbox. Have I ever installed Origin or bought any games requiring Origin? Nope. "#1 publisher"...you know who is the #1 restaurant in America? McDonalds. People cant get enough cheap, massed produced mediocre junk.

That's a lot of Battlefield money in my mind.

It's not a lot of SimCity too what I would think they where after.
