I see an awful lot of people sitting back and laughing up this idea but I don't see why it is that far-fetched. People seem to think EA's collapse (if it was to ever happen) would be gradual but I doubt it. EA will fall hard and fast. I would like to point out THQ as an example. People sit back and say "they were dying for ages" except they weren't. Their collapse happened virtually overnight. It was in 2010 when their budgets began to spiral out of control that they began to feel the burn. That is when all the restructuring happened and the bad news began to show.
That was not a long term failure. THQ were perfectly fine for half of this generation. It didn't stop them going under during the final hurdle. All it really takes is one major car crash and your legs are broken forever. EA might have a lot of money but it doesn't mean it won't be burned overnight. They may have a lot of assets but if you see they have already had serious restructures before PS4 and X1 even came out. They have faced two lawsuits over BF4, Titanfall is obviously going to flop hard. Saying the pre-orders indicate nothing is foolishness. It gives an insight to how much interest there really is in the game. Just because MS and EA are hyping it to the moon doesn't mean it will sell well. Marketing it like this only makes the burn harder when it fails.
So if they post another loss in April that will match last year when Dead Space 3 and Crysis 3 flopped. Dead Space 3 itself is proof. A game can still be insanely popular and flop due to people calling you out on your practices. Popularity doesn't mean EA are immune and that people will ignore calling them on their BS.
