Titanfall has the potential to beat out Call of Duty and Battlefield 4. Maybe not in total sales but Titanfall is definitely the big new competitor on the field. Over two million played the open beta, which was only open for a brief period of time (meaning had it been open for longer, maybe more would have played it. One of the Titanfall trailers on YouTube has over 2 million views, and Microsoft is going to bundle a Titanfall Xbox One game in each Xbox One it sells. That is an extremely bullish move for both companies, especially after all the rave reviews Titanfall received. While it's hard to say just how many copies will be sold, I'm banking on strong sales and plenty of hype when it comes out. Especially considering it is sold only on the Xbox 360, Xbox One, and PC, which should add to the hype via the ongoing console fan wars. On top of the possibility of strong sales, Titanfall will come out with free updates and 3 DLC's which could cost $10 each or $25 for the whole pack that may come with bonuses if you preorder. EA is about much more than just Titanfall, but expect the release of this game to be huge. I'm a huge gamer and when I played the game it made me more likely to pre-order it, just as a small disclaimer there.

Think Blizzard is the play, they are a lot more reliant on mobile game sales than one should feel comfortable with a stock at that sticker price.

Sales with battlefield 4 will help the lackluster performance of Madden 13.

EA has sports gaming fairly locked down. Appears to be avoiding Online failures such as Vanguard these days. It has also recently acquired Star Wars after the closing (to my gamer dissatisfaction) of the venerable studio responsible for so many hours of my Star Wars gaming entertainment consumption. However, with the upcoming release of Star Wars: Battlefront and Disney's power house of a marketing machine behind it things are looking good for investors in Star Wars gaming.

Short term bumps from company profit earnings despite being the worst company in terms of customer support and products, it still is a cash cow.

This company is quite possibly the worst company I have ever seen and their latest big release, Sim City, is a good example for that.

Sim City used to be a great franchise and managed to earn a lot of consumer goodwill. And then EA decides to force the traditional single player game into multiplayer and require a permanent internet connection. As an investor I can appreciate their attempt to improve the monetization, but they are doing it wrong, because they are alienating fans of the franchise in the process.
So, anti consumer behaviour is one thing. But when Sim City also goes down into history as the worst game launch ever, because there werent enough servers available for people to play on, eventhough it was soooo obvious that this could be a problem (since competitors have encountered similar problems in the past) I really start to wonder.

So the bottom line is: EA fails to monetize their games as well as ATVI (except maybe Battlefield 3), drives their consumers crazy (Sim City, Mass Effect 3...) and their organization/management is an obvious mess. And to add on top of all that: Their stock isnt even anywhere near cheap.
Pretty much the contrary what I am looking for.

Major video games are moving hard towards a blockbuster business model, like publishing of books and films. This is very bad. It turns production into a form of gambling on big winners to make up for the losses of the sea of failed titles. Add onto that the total inability to predict what will be big? The console market shrinks. The casual game market prefers smaller titles, with smaller teams. The big AAA titles, the MMORPGs, will all fade to black as the smaller indie studios dominate against a sea of mediocre major titles.

EA is successfully shifting focus to mobile games and game downloads. The Simpsons: Tapped Out is one of the most successful games recently with nearly 3 million active daily users. In its most recent quarterly report it showed a 46% gain in game downloads, and downloads now contribute nearly 50% of the company's revenues. The company should continue to expand mobile development, while maintaining its EA sports franchises to navigate the murky video game industry waters.

EA makes a lot of crappy video games. A big part of their strategy is tied to their exclusive deal with the NFL for Madden. Low morale at EA is an old, old story. Console gaming is struggling, and EA is definitely not the best in its class.

EA disregards or does not understand the importance of user experience around its digital distribution and account management system. Absurd projections for Star Wars: The Old Republic will fail miserably if this does not change.

$EA is still ridiculously cheap, its price is currently near a 10 year low. Video game stocks are getting crushed due to the industry shifting to mobile and social. $EA has a great game portfolio that is popular right now, and will continue to be played whether its on consoles, phones or social media.
