This war agrees with them: AVault reports that Electronic Arts has more money than a dead fish. This, of course begs the question: just how much money does a dead fish have?
Video game publisher Electronic Arts reported a 50 percent jump in its fiscal third-quarter profit on Wednesday, led by strong sales for its Harry Potter games franchise. Redwood City, California-based Electronic Arts reported a net profit of $132.3 million, compared with net earnings of $88 million in the year-earlier period, Reuters reports. The company reported earnings of $147.1 million; revenue in the quarter was $832.9 million, up from $640.3 million a year earlier.
The company’s online division, EA.com, posted a loss including charges in the quarter of $36.2 million, though revenue nearly doubled to $21.9 million from $11.2 million in the year-earlier period. During the quarter, the company phased out its heavily promoted online adventure game Majestic, which was well received by critics but ended up a commercial failure due in part to its cumbersome registration process.
Next up is Raptor's introduction for the latest chapter of Holding the Line. You can find the chapter here.
Hey all, Raptor here.
HTL continues with part four of the "Toeing The Line" series, this one being
called "Scrap Mettle". As you saw in the last couple of chapters, the Border
Worlds reserves in the Nifelheim system had launched a mock attack on the
Confed carriers, giving both forces a chance to practise dogfighting and
mass engagement tactics. This chapter focuses on their Confed counterparts,
both those who are defending the carriers, and those who are taking part in
the attack with the squadrons of volunteer pilots they're training. This
chapter is written by James Andrew "JAG" Greenhow, so please send any and
all comments to him at
