A little scary considering these figures account for Madden and NCAA 13. Wonder where all the money is going.

i dont get it they lost 381 mill, yet they made 711 mil? all i see is a "WIN WIN" to me.

Theres a difference between revenue and profit.

ambientFLIER1498d ago (Edited 1498d ago )

Revenue of 711 million with a loss of 381 million means that their expenses were 1.091 Billion. Revenue and Profit are two different things. They made no profit for the quarter.

@onyoursistersback

Imagine if you started a business that made $800. The cost to start the business and hire someone was $1000.

That means you lost $200 ($800 revenue - $1000 expenses).

This really isn't that much. Considering that they publish about anything.

SWTOR Cost them 150 Million minimal amount. They tried to make a WoW clone and that doesn't work so they go Free to play and hope to make up for that cash in the long run.

What else cost them?

That's a lot of cheese right there.

All they need to do is release Sims 4 and profits will soar again.

Or a Lady Gaga DLC for Sims 3 and make it 40$.

DeadlyFire1498d ago

Simcity hits in 2013.

Sims 4 doesn't come out until 2014. Don't give it away just yet. They have 3 more expansion packs to release before 2014.

ouch, i can't believe im saying this after dealing with the 06 to 08 crappy game lineup, this sorta makes me sad. :(

Good. Releasing games like MoH and sending them off to die won't help. No, releasing a month before Call of Duty isn't a good strategy.

Just hurry up and make Battlefield an annual franchise.(If you don't believe me look at EAs newest press release where they admitted it)
