I think they understand the industry well. There is no innovation in gaming how much longer is releasing the same game each year really going to last?

I honestly think that their investors are stupid misogynistic pigs, how can they not see that EA is making the greatest games of our proud generation? Mass Effect 3 for example, is probably the best game in the last twelve years, much better than any crap game made by that sexist pig Gabe Newell who makes video games about hiding your proud womyn heritage i.e Portal series.
I would explain why that's all bullshit but I've already done so in another article pertaining to Origin. Even on the internet you'll not find a sucker gullible enough to believe a word of what you or the other guy said about EA or Valve.

Target has a net income 7x that of Nordstorm. Something tells me this guy is gonna have some angry shareholders.
Hellfire posted that in the article I linked. It appears he was right.

UM no. First thing first WTF IS A WOMYN! Secondly EA did not make Mass Effect 3, Bioware did. All EA is becoming is a money grubbing company (wait they already have). And all you did by saying EA made Mass Effect 3 just made me think all EA fanboys are dumb...

I can't quite explain why, but this makes me absolutely furious. We don't understand the gaming industry. Suuuuure. It's our fault that your stocks are dropping. It's our fault that we might just have some legitimate reasons to not like a game that have some legitimate flaws. EA, you were good once, back when you were Electronic Arts. Back when there was The Sims 2 and back when there was actually decent sports games. Lets face it, they're a bunch of money-grobbing whores who don't give a single shit about their consumers, fans of their games and of course, quality. I'll praise the day when they go out of business, to be honest.

I'm sure they don't understand the industry, they certainly don't seem to understand how the consumers loose interest or sees flaws in a product=consumers don't buy. Then theres people who boycott due to business practices.

Also maybe looking beyond the numbers and statistics might help.

EA missed Jul 18, 12
I think EA missed the part where they were voted the worst company in America. Stocks falling is just a result of being a crappy company. Consumers and investors are sick of getting dicked around by EA. If the company goes out of business the people that were part of the smaller companies that EA bought and turned to crap will be free to make the games the way they intended again, but this time with more money in their own pocket to start with, or get a job with a non-shitty company like Valve and speed up the release of H-L/Portal 3 which is currently scheduled for 2024.

I just think out of anything it's just nothing new and innovation really. At least in the bigger leagues there isn't. Right now, the indie scene is what is moderately grabbing attention as most of the indie games are ironically games we used to play back on Super Nintendo days. Almost like we're going backwards in what's selling.

While you can also add that right now FPS's are what is gaining most attention in terms of good ways and bad ways. Good for business propositions but bad simply because there is not that many "WHOA that was SICK!" it's more like "Well I saw something similar in _____"

In EA there talk lately has been "We make the right decsions! We make the right moves!" while it is a business that falls and picks up how they bring ideas and propose things are astronomical in per portion. I mean, saying you can't let games go %75 off, making social games become what you're well known for? Sounds to me like EA just needs to really look at the big picture of what is really wrong with the stock drops. Maybe perhaps look at what others are doing to gain an audience not to simply push them away. Social games to me are a gambol and unforgettably I have to deal with that, but stay true to the video game industry not the free to (scam) play or the social two second (pay scamming money to get a golden chair) games that make games look uninspiring. Then, maybe then I'll forward to a new EA game or any game. Plus, EA has been saying terrible things about gamers. I mean the free DLC for Mass Effect 3 is a start, perhaps they should offer a little more if they want a fan-base again instead of an all out war saying "EA sucks!"

The next generation will be a hard one to see what happens...Because right now, it has become "Oh wow you got the achievements all in Skyrim?!" to which is ended with a big grin going "Heh, yeah well I got all three stars in Angry Birds levels"

I think EA is confused about "investors are confused about gaming". First thing they need to work on to fix the issue is, fire your whole customer support department. It's garbage.
