That doesn't necessarily mean EA are doing bad, just that other companies are doing much, much better.... oh god, why am I defending EA?!? :?

Your just telling the truth before all the doom mongers come on and predict the end of EA and gaming as we know it!

the economy in general, and especially game industry as whole in decline tbh.
Games are a luxury item, and one of first things people cut back on.
I rarely buy day one at full price anymore.
Feel guilty at times, but some bargains to be had out there.I use Amazon USA for digital downloads and can pick.up some bargains, simply games, gogs.com. Etc etc had witcher 2 for £7 last night, could have had it for 4.5 , if deal hasn't expired.

Its certainly not the end but I wouldn't shed a single tear if EA ended up with pennies on its eyes.

Nor would i, but its predictable that some people will see it as the end of gaming just from EA being removed from the NASDAQ.....Its as if they have a fascination with doom!

It's not about doom mongering, just a reality check.
Look at economy as whole, look at game companies going bust, shops going bust, what developers and publishers say as whole. The industry is getting forced to change and adapt to various factors, as the world has changed, and industry couldn't carry on as it was doing, without self destructing.
Industry won't Die completely, but you can bet your bottom dollar, it will be radically different in next five or so years.

Yup, they aren't worth a crap anymore. The latest phone models are seen as last roll of dice really, at least in terms of the general market, and not just businesses, but even those are moving away from blackberry

Stonecold, have you been hiding under a rock mate? RIM are all but dead and buried. It would take some kind of miracle from BB10 to save the company.
