    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.

    You are right, it does
    misrepresent the bigger picture, but if even if you add 35% to
    ERTS it does not
    match the order of magnitude
    difference in market cap.

    Here is where to go to look
    at the data yourself. If you look at the
    "interactive entertaiment" (which includes PC
    games) you'll
    see that ERTS does do better than
    AKLM.
