EA: Investors don't give a sh*t about quality

Electronic Arts CEO, John Riccitiello, has stated that his investors really don't care about quality when it comes to software, explaining that higher review scores don't translate into stock sales.

"I don't think the investors give a sh*t about our quality. They care about our earnings per share. They wait for it to happen. We had three years where we didn't make our expectations. If I were an investor, I would wait and see. That's fine with me," Riccitiello explained when broaching the subject of EA's stock failing to shift despite the rise in review scores. Electronic Arts' outspoken CEO also touched upon the ongoing battle for Take-Two. 

"I don't care if people write about Take-Two. It doesn't matter to me. What matters to me is that ... we're making progress toward that goal," claimed Riccitiello. "Having clever verbal sword play about Take-Two doesn't really matter. I'm not really playing for a headline in the New York Times."
