Hopefully the losses continue and the NFL kicks EA out of its bed.

Their stocks are still way up overall from last year, but it's still a nice thing to see. They frakked with Star Wars and loaded a $60 game with performance altering microtransactions, and it bit them right where it hurts. About freaking time.

EA was at a peak of $68.12 in 2005

...a low of $11.41 in 2012


$106.02 yesterday.

Their market cap is still $32.73B


Guys, I think they're going to be ok... They're probably going to tone down the P2W model, but microtransactions aren't going anywhere. :cry:
