But once a running joke and eerie string of coincidences has started affecting real people. EA Sports is taking all sorts of financial hits.
Electronic Arts said Monday that it lost $391 million in its fiscal second quarter and will lay off 1,500 people.People losing jobs is not funny. Real shit, man.
EA's loss widened from last year's $310 million in red ink. But on an adjusted basis, EA earned $19 million compared with a loss of $20 million last year. Revenue was down 12% to $788 million.
What is funny: Michael Vick, Ray Lewis, Donovan McNabb, Vince Young, Brett Favre and Troy Polamalu. You get the drift.
