It's sad to see an upstart company made more money than EA all thanks to one game. EA released tons of game every year for all types o gaming system since the 1980s only to be compared, usually in a negative light, with a company that sold only ONE game in the past decade.

More importantly I do hope this won't force EA to abandon us for mobiles.
