Title is overblown. Yes, they are down for the month, but they're still up 39% YTD. EA isn't hurting, but they are getting signals.

How much of this stupid article is just to appeal to the enraged gamer and make it seem as if EA has already paid the price?

[–] StagOfMull 0 points 6 points (+6|-0) ago 

All of it. Most people do not understand how to stock market works. If they did they would be making money off it.

I wonder what's going to happen when they put the DLC back in the game in a few months. Probably nothing.

[–] DanielJames 0 points 8 points (+8|-0) ago 

All the gaymers will start buying their DLC shit and the stock will shoot even further up.

Star Wars was a pretty good kids / young persons film when it first game out. Since then it has been absolute trash, more so in each iteration.

OK we did get a few good games along the way, but the last Battlefront on the X-Box one was total rubbish, everyone could see it a mile off. And people still bought it, this one similar problems, and people still buy it.

They deserve everything they get. I'm gonna stick to my cheaper indie games on steam that whilst don't have the worlds best graphics (not that I care), they are actually fun to play.

Great games I'm playing now: Caveexplorers Immortal Redkneck Day of Infamy Ravenfield

all the faggots over at r/pcmasterrace will get into a huge flame war about it.

I hope they fail sooooooo bad. Gamers really need to speak with their wallets

[–] Rhymerin 0 points 6 points (+6|-0) ago 

A lot of us have been yelling this for a long time, but the reality is they'll burn a few more decent studios to the ground while retards buy into the hype and pre order the latest bugfest.

Now if only we could do the same thing with TV, and/or Hollywood (as a whole). Gamers really have an advantage, when it comes to voting with our wallets. Can't fuck it up.

Think we all know there was some sheckel changer bean counters behind this whole practice.

Even Jesus Christ who forgave his own murderers amd betrayers lost it dealing with Jews and money. Think about that

[–] Cheesebooger 0 points 6 points (+6|-0) ago 

It was the only time Christ became violent and cursed when he dealt with the money changer scum

[–] Saufsoldat 0 points 1 points (+1|-0) ago 

Pretty sure he also cursed a fig tree.

They could of just released the old battlefront with redone graphics, extra worlds, smoother mechanics, a progression system, and a larger variety of troops and vehicles and everyone would of been happy. This game is console garbage

Could of

Even for console, it's garbage. in #PCMasterRace world, it's basically theoretical garbage. As in, "haha, no one would buy that if it was an actual thing... wait, it's real? lol". Words escape me, to describe what a train-wreck this game actually is. Hopefully someone, with a more-colorful vocabulary than I, will be able to describe just how stupid of a game-design choice this was.

How EA is still a company that makes money is a testament to jewish nepotism, and nothing more.

Fourteen year old fuckwits will continue to chow down on EA's massive stinking chubby, regardless of the game quality or DLC.

They'll remain profitable, and gamers will keep noshing. If you buy EA stuff, you deserve what you get.

[–] MyWaifuIsNotASlut 0 points 2 points (+2|-0) ago 

true. I've been done with them since they killed Command and Conquer, and I am confident that they'll never release a game worth playing in the future.

[–] ThisIsMyRealName 0 points 6 points (+6|-0) ago 

8.5% how will they ever recover... I foresee some Sims 5 hype in the near future.

[–] TheTrigger 0 points 1 points (+1|-0) ago 

Once they start busting out the LucasArts IP, you know they're in dee— wait...

[–] TheonGreyjoy [S] 0 points 4 points (+4|-0) ago 

I have been waiting for this to happen for a long time. Burn to the fucking ground, you cunts.

[–] Shiggz 0 points 3 points (+3|-0) ago 

Even a couple self inflicted percent is enough to get board collecting scalps

[–] QuitWaistingOurMoney 0 points 5 points (+5|-0) ago  (edited ago)

Yea, while not a massive amount for them it's definitely not an unnoticeable amount and doesn't take a rocket scientist to find the cause.

I imagine even these losses are buffered by demand from more risk taking investors buying up cheaper stock, EA is an old relatively stable company (although it looks like they took a while to recover from the 08 crash) in terms of long term growth.

I think though that the loss is compounded that they did this during the Christmas shopping season, it will be more telling to see stock prices after the holidays.

It's the board that brought on this shit to begin with.
