Revenue is pointless, I bet PC profits are much higher.

What are the odds they'll stop being psychopaths and ease up on on their insanity? What are they odds they'll ever stop trying to nickel and dime their customers to death?

I hope they never stop winning the golden poo award. Relative to what their position is and what they do with it, they actually are worse than or on par with the banks.

I doubt that line will stay that high with the Simcity disaster.

It can't be that much of a disaster if it's sold 2m+ copies.

Not sure if those figures included the AMD APU promo which gave out free copies of SimCity, that's how I got my copy.

Don't think next gen games are gonna push hardware too much as the next gen consoles are already slow. With BF4 being rendered on them only in 720p and that's only the first game in to come up. For me it seems that PC games will be once again held up by the crappy console hardware. Our only hope is that the "common i386" architecture is gonna allow much better details on PC games..let's keep our fingers crossed
