"The slump was blamed on poor performance of key titles, growing competition, higher engine licensing costs, and the upcoming next-gen consoles that are apparently reducing anticipation for current gen titles." - Andy Burnes @ VE3D

Maybe they need to realize that adding $10 more to the price of their games isn't really going to help much. :P

The slump was blamed on the fact that EA sports games blow ass. True story.

Serves them right. It's karma biting them in the ass for gobbling up all of those smaller companies. :P

I think what really did it was killing off Westwood and throwing out a POS game called "C&C Generals" that is nothing true to the series.

Then tack on the release of NHL 2005, when there isn't even a season this year, PLUS the game is THE worst installment in the NHL series EVER. I deleted it within 5 minutes of playing, it's SHITE! SHITE SHITE SHITE!

 

All that was good with EA is now dead........rot EA, ROT! :P

I want them to rot in hell AFTER they release marvel, if it's a good game (doubt it) then I would like them to rot in hell a week later.

I think EA's profits may be dropping because EVERYONE FLOCKING HATES THEM! Maybe if they weren't such ASSHOLES, and quit buying out entire franchises, they wouldn't be diving into a empty cement pond.
