EA claims that better-than-expected sales of GTA: San Andreas, Halo 2, Half-Life 2 and World of Warcraft put a damper on their sales with CEO Larry Probst saying, ""Everybody in the industry has been surprised with World of Warcraft...There are people who haven't played games in years who are now spending 20 hours a week playing."
