EA Double-Speak

During an earnings call EA boss, John Riccitello, said the company wasn't satisfied with its overall sales performance for 2007. Riccitello said that while 2008 looks promising, EA will continue to focus less on sequels and ...

Pour One Out for Journeyman [Update]

Visit my personal blog: THE LEVELING GRIND

The name's Xav de Matos. I've been around the gaming industry block for a while and after an amazing stint as the public relations manager and staff writer on THEBBPS.com, I've moved on as a staff writer for AOL's gaming network at Xbox360Fanboy.com and as a reviewer for WorthPlaying.com and do other freelance work in the gaming industry.

Since I need a place to rant and rave, I thought Dtoid would be the perfect place for me to express my madness!
