Electronic Arts' CEO in hot seat after repeated misses

The publisher of games like "Madden NFL" and "The Sims" slashed its fiscal 2010 forecast on Monday, citing weak December holiday sales in Europe and a shift to lower-margin products.

It was the second year in a row that EA significantly cuts its guidance, and Riccitiello -- who has been CEO for three years -- faces growing negative sentiment if he cannot lead the maker of software for game consoles and handheld devices to a comeback.

"Anytime you underperform, you should be worried about your job," said Janco Partners analyst Mike Hickey. "An inability to execute on his performance objectives this year could put him at risk."
