    Just shows how ignorant some media are, they compare PC sales to 7 other platforms combined, and do not factor in one of the biggest ways to putchase games on PC, digital distribution.

    "EAs own fault that the game got pre-released. And was available to pirates before you could even buy it. I'm sure thats responsible for a large amount of sales lost!"

    Edit: Sorry, I mean they could have sold more then they did because of that pre-release incident. Good for crysis for doing so well anyways! Crysis sure deserves it.

    EA simply didnt sell of its own brand internally developed games because they were all dire sequels. Just add 08 on the end, update the teams/fixtures and tidy up the graphics = cash cow.

    Well maybe not a cash cow for much longer. I despair when I see FIFA 08 and the latest PES riding the charts for so long. I can only assume the *younger* generation are lapping up this drivel.

    Oh well... Im sure EA will make a ton more money from another 25 SIMS2 expansion packs this year alone!

    Yeah "the sky is falling" especialy when EA releases Fifa number 234 and number 235 of ...... (fill in a ea sportsgame)

    duh!

    Lucky for them to have actually 'new' game creators under the wings that do sell...


    Also do they compare wii+ps2+ps3+xbox+x360 sales combined against pc sales?

    thats great news, i expect crysis to keep on selling well for a while, as nothing on the planet can yet see it in its true glory, at 1920x1200 4xAA , 16xAF. i can;t get the frames to do it on hard difficultly yet, so i'm definatly revisiting it when the next line of cards (not glue jobs) come out

    Same. Crysis will keep flying for months. I'm getting it once I have a new system - in the meantime, I placate myself with STALKER :)

    No doubt related to the number of pack ins with 8800s rather than retail sales I reckon.
