... In case you're serious, There are G8 countries that don't make 4.6 billion. The hell did you get that number from?
Actually, the G8 country with the lowest GDP is Russia, with 1.29 trillion.

Wasn't the G8 rendered defunct by the G20?

I still wanna know where that 4.6 Billion figure is from. That seems more like a figure that would apply to all of EA -- I want to know how the maxis bit specifically is doing.

GDP =/= Profit.

Go to jail. Do not pass Go. Do not collect $200.


Or I'm wrong and I embarressed myself.

Eitherway, 4.6 billion is a HUGE amount. The Republic of Mongolia doesn't make that.

That really doesn't matter for the sake of this arguement in any sense whatsoever.

You're in my way, sir.



Dude, you're dreaming that you're a pony.  I don't care how good the show is.

You act as if anyone gave a turd about Mongolia. Large corporations have been making more than third and second world countries from day one, there's nothing special about EA.

You're missing the point. He wasn't talking about multi-million companies like EA, he was refering to Maxis. And Maxis doesn't produce Madden '08 by the truckloads.

I guess EA doesn't release revenue data from their individual marques.

Maxis do not really exist any more. Just so you all know.

That's my point. The good ol' Maxis we all know and love was absorbed by the money-grubbing sore that is EA. I was referring to EA.

And i am just making it clear that they do not even have a real studio any more. The name is still there but is just that. A name. Though that i guess is a rare honor in the EA sphere as normally when they cancel a studio the name also vanish.

There's some "darkspore" rumour going about based on the usual scummy snooping of what companies have been registering as trademarks, if anyone cares.

A rumour? Might as well Google it to see some truth.

Just because they registered that trademark doesn't mean they're gonna make the game.

It's often that they just don't want anyone else to trademark that name.
There is, of course, a difference between having a laugh with someone, and having a laugh at their expense

Hmmm, been a while. Dunno if Spore is truly dead but the game basically ate my best and oldest save, rendering the Noripod empire (and I spent hours on it so this was a pretty large empire with all tech and space game toys) a distant memory, mainly because I basically re-installed because the game started going weird on me after the save delete and if the Noripod empire was bugged it was basically game over because it had its massive tendrils in every spiral arm.
