    Reason for price drop

    That misrepresents the WHOLE STORY! ERTS derives
    nearly 35% of it's revenues from PC sales and those are
    NOT part of the sales you have posted. AKLM on the
    other hand derives only 18% of it's sales from the PC
    side. And those percentages are from last year, before
    ERTS has had several #1 selling PC titles! I imagine
    that the PC side for ERTS is only going to become a
    larger percentage of the overall total.

    When you
    look at the REAL numbers AKLM derives well over 80% of
    it's revenues from the numbers you cite, while ERTS
    derives just over 40% of theirs from those same sources.
    And those percentages are from last year. I wouldn't
    be surprised to see that percentage drop for both of
    them, but more than likely it will be more of a
    significant drop for ERTS than for AKLM.

    I just wanted
    to let everyone know that the numbers you are noting
    are NOT THE WHOLE STORY!
