Jealously and competition is something EA has always feared. Activision? They should start making actual games. COD franchise needs more attention. It's just their way of saying how bad their sales are.

Come to think about it, I wonder how the Sims would be if R* bought the rights for it and started making their own Sims. Would it turn out like Playboy The Mansion or something?

What he is actually saying: "No, no shareholders, don't worry keep your monies here! It's not because our games were pale in comparrison. It was because GTA V sold a billion. See it's their fault, not ours!, please stay, please".
 
This is quite pathetic coming from a CFO.

 

 

Thing is though, it's pretty much what he has to say. Firstly it's true. Secondly, even if it's unfortunate for EA to have to admit that they don't have any franchise to compete with GTA, they know it's unlikely another major one will be released for a few years.

 

On this point, I must remember to sell short on EA and Activision next time a GTA is going to be released. Take2 share prices have already shot up at the vaguest whiff of an announcement, I bet secondary impacts are more sluggish. The problem with timing it right with R*'s propensity to delay releases.

I'll wait for the day until EA goes bankrupt on their price policies, unfinished games and origin.

 

I dont buy EA games for a reason and you should too.

EA gets a boner thinking about having Rockstar and the GTA licence. They tried to buy them in 2008 and failed and now there butt hurt and going to start bitching

 

Thank you EA for ruining games and developers I like for example

I was/am playing Skate 3 as long/longer than GTA IV/V combined. I played Skate 2 quite a bit too! I played most of the SSX games besides the most recent. I played Desert Strike, Jungle Strike, Urban Strike, and Nuclear Strike. I played NBA Street until 3 (Three sucked soo much!!)

 

Until they start talking about making another Skate game...

 

FK EA!

:lol: True talk bro...but tbh if you come to look at it the GTA IP is the weirdest and the Greatest Of All,A PS1/PC 2D-top down game in the late 90s (even though 3D was coming into use) to a franchise that evolved into 3D an took the Game world by storm and Revolutionising/Popularising and defining a Genre forever creating the term "GTA Clone" then the HD Era games (IV-V) broke records esp. V making $1bn in 72hrs and making it an Historical record in the History of the Entertainment Industry...tbh R* are Super Lucky and Bless with an Ultra Powerful IP which is GTA and atm no IP and i mean no IP can be SO dominant as GTA or beat it records or even do all innovations GTA did in just 17 years of it existant,lol even Activision STFU after losing it challenge of Cod Ghost beating V's Historic record...and apart from the Monster of an IP that is GTA,Rockstar also have Red Dead and Midnight Club (two solid IPs) and Midnightclub is R* solution to NFS,lol why E.A and Activision cant even find a solution to GTA...

Lol damn! I have to say, R* does everything better than ea, in making games, money, AND taking advantage of their consumers. Weirdly... I feel proud... Mad props R*! Rather it be you than them.

Rockstar pissed EA enough for them to make a statement? 

Good game, Rockstar. Good game.
