Looks like another bad quarter for the folks behind the Madden NFL game series. This time they will lay off 500 workers after reporting a loss of $310 million in the last quarter which ended Sep 30, 2008.

With game prices at record highs and their total revenues up 40% from a year ago I really wonder what they are doing wrong.

I don't know what they are doing either... If there is a huge game coming out, EA probably has a part in it nowadays.

Man what could they possible be doing to loose money. EA has so many games that are huge successes that this is hard to believe.

Warhammer Online is an EA game and I bet it just lost half of its subscriptions due to Wrath of the Lich King coming out today.

If you want good game play go to a park with a basketball and some friends.
