Calling all EA (ERTS) Shareholders

Attention EA and all EA shareholders:

You have failed as a publicly traded company to properly set and manage customer expectations.

As a result this is negatively impacting:

1. The book value of ERTS shares. As a shareholder this is affecting my pocket book.
2. My faith in your ability to properly set and manage customer expectations.

ERTS shares have dropped 7.5% in the past 2 days. Given all of the marketing, development and infrastructure cost to launch this game your number 1 priority should be protecting churn.

How do you protect churn? By developing a good product and keeping your customers happy.

You definitely have a good product w/ out a doubt but I fear you have cannibalized any future pre-order sales significantly by over promising and under delivering on early access. You should not have hauled the dates in on EGA if you were not prepared just to drive additional unit sales.

Will SWTOR be a good game and last for many years to come? If you don't pull something like this again it probably will.

Will people be hesitant to pre-order online games from EA in the future? Probably. i certainly will.

Yours Truly.

Quoted of SWTOR Forums: can you make sword in box light sword so sword come out when opened? then if sword is back after sword, use light saber on box, and saber will be boxed after sword is out.

make sure to post on the Battlefield 3 board because this drop falls in line with CoD news that it hit 1B in 16 days.

There stocks are not that bad, there profits are out of the room. Buying stocks in EA and Blizzard are the smart thing to do. I have both companies in my profilio and both will start looking good next couple weeks.
