    Thinking of this sector

    Does anyone have a favorite way to compare Computer Game Software companies against each other?

    Specifically, do people like P/E, PEG, Free Cash Flow, Price/Sales, or some other measure?

    • " I was just pointing out the fallacies in your one-way thinking, which is when ERTS buys a studio, it is a "great" acquisition, while when MSFT buys one, it is "throwing money down the toilet."

      ---It wasn't me that said that. What's wrong with you? All I said (chiming into the conversation between you and jamok [in case you still are unsure who originally said that]) was that Rare has so far been blown money. What was it, $400 million or so? For what? Nothing. Better to hand Rare $50.00 to make a couple exclusive games for Xbox. MSFT was just throwing money around like a gorilla throws his poop around. There were better ways for MSFT to go about acquiring a Rare game, which as I've said there still isn't a Rare game on the Xbox.

      MSFT should be very concerned about a lot of things. ERTS's only concern is staying on step ahead of the competition. Luckily MSFT isn't in that competition lol.

      Is also the same company that ENTERED the console market just 2 years ago and helped cause Nintendo's first losing quarter since it has been a public company in over 40 years by outselling Nintendo and taking thier market share, not to mention the fact that in one year's time, they did what ERTS has been only talking about for the past 5 years, that is building an online arena and filling it with nearly a million paying subscribers.

      Yep....it is that same company....And they are just getting started. Cha-ching!

    • <<Wow, that's really help MSFT and hurting ERTS /sarcasm. >>

      I never said it was hurting ERTS. I was just pointing out the fallacies in your one-way thinking, which is when ERTS buys a studio, it is a "great" acquisition, while when MSFT buys one, it is "throwing money down the toilet." Your inability to see outside your ERTS blinders is sad.

      <<I'd say it's hundreds of millions of dollars MSFT threw down the toilet. >>

      I'd say it is a great step towards adding a quality developer to MSFT's game studios.....not to mention the fact of taking one away from Nintendo. It is just another testament to MSFT's commitment to being a dominant player in the VG industry.

      MSFT is for real....they are not a fad.....and ERTS should be very concerned about having the world's biggest monopolist and dominant software company in the other corner, putting on its' gloves.

    • Wow, that's really help MSFT and hurting ERTS /sarcasm. I'd say it's hundreds of millions of dollars MSFT threw down the toilet.

    • <<More to the point, what has Rare done for Xbox so far? ;) >>

      Eliminated any possibility for a Rare made game to ever appear on a Nintendo game console. ;)

    • Word, sentence, and dangling participle, yo!

      I�ve been around since you showed you�re face, I just for the most part don�t respond to morons like you. First you go on and on about the same things over and over and when you are proven wrong, you still continue on with the same shit. Today after reading your same old same crap for the millionth time I just felt like throwing that little jab in which by the way I truly meant. Secondly Jamok and Turtle own you, they train wreck you time in and time out, I don�t need to even reply to your stupidity, I just sit back and laugh while you get slaughtered.

    • you really are cluless

    • Based on your post I can only assume you've been shorting since $94.00 :)

      "Hell, anyting above split adjusted $40 would be a gift."

      How does it feel to be wrong and underwater...yet again?
