    ERTS First Call estimates

    I started trading ERTS after Amiga so I do not know the whole story. But let's stick with the present, shall we?

    EA has become a gorilla, THE gorilla in the video game industry so their relationships with the console makers have become the key to everyone's success. This may not be the case 4 or 5 years ago when Sega used to be another dominant player in the hardware and software business.

    Rab, I forgot one other point about Sega. Sega is no longer a formidable company that it once was, from the cash standpoint. Their management made many costly mistakes, bad consoles being one, and outrageous payouts for advertisement (remember Joe Montana's "Sega"??) I am sure there are more. At one time, they were in danger of going under. So with regard to R&D, let them try to outspend EA to compete with EA by 2002. They will be lucky to have one game on the top 10 list. Did you buy their stock yet?
