BUBUBUBUBUT the used games are killing the industry. Bullshit!

BUBUBUBUT social and mobile games are the future. Bullshit yet again.

This industry will just keep growing and the only reason EA is losing money. Is because they think going after the cod audience is gonna make them so much money. Instead they should have just made Dead Space 3 like the original and not mess around with Overstrike. If you make a good product and stand behind it gamers will buy it.

The question is, how much of that growth is due to mobile games? The kind EA can't pour $100 million into.

Willing to bet the market growth will not be as big on the Xbox One due to how they handle games.
