    ...And there are Starving Children in the World!!!



    EA Earns $125 Million From EA Sports Active

    It just makes you think at what point does this need to stop.... EA profits off one game in a couple months... Does anybody else see a problem... you take 10mil of that 125 and give it to Chile and Haiti for all the victims and what have you...

    The exercise title has been EA's best-selling game on Wii, selling over 600,000 copies in its first two weeks. Additionally, EA Sports President Peter Moore said it is one of the top 20 best-selling Wii titles to date.

    In direct competition with Nintendo's own Wii Fit, EA Sports Active has managed to sell well. Moore inferred that a new genre of video game might be emerging, which he labeled "Interactive Fitness."

    Although EA Sports has announced plans to release EA Sports Active on other consoles, Moore said: "Titles that take advantage of motion, particularly with [Wii] MotionPlus, are really starting to resonate with the consumer. As a company we're great believers in the Wii. You'll see our major multiplatform launches still have a presence on the Wii. When we look at where we've been successful, it's been with specific experiences that are built around that consumer."

    EA Sports Active was released in May 2009, and its follow-up, EA Sports Active: More Workouts, was released in November. (NWR)

    Just goes to show how much piracy hurts the industry. How do you know that EA doesn't already donate to the needy? Big companys usually donate something.

    They'll keep playing that "piracy is killing the games industry" sob song over and over to sucker the commoner into buying every piece of crap (not all crap) that they push out and then boast record profits as an "in your face SUCKER!!"

    I'm not doubting that companies don't donate.... But they could always donate more......

    Usually when companies like this donate, they make a big point to let the world know about it, in case it helps sales.

    Never quantify your life by comparison. It is always going to be apples to oranges. If you feel the need to always look down on others, you currently do not own enough mirrors------ Tommie Griffin.
