    Default A facinating comparison of EA vs Zynga, with a little Acti-Blizzard on the side

    Articles like this facinate me. Just some good raw number comparison with a very basic evaluation.

    Well....I had a finance class that said something I tend to agree with. That point was "Statistically speaking IPOs have a high tendency to fail/not perform as well as expected which isn't reflected in its initial market valuation."

    It's just a tendency for a "shiny new thing". It's quite likely it's very overpriced and the market will quickly react to that once it's out. Zynga is a way to directly reach a large userbase. Extremely useful for advertising; e.g. Google. It has a lot of potential in that regard. Eventually it might earn a ton of money if it takes on a heavy advertising style like Google, but that time is not now. And the article is kinda retarded calling EA the "past". If the company continues to make solid profits then it's not dead yet (unless it's done with accounting trickery).

    Would be funny if like Farmville you suddenly see "branded" tractors.
