EA's Labels President Frank Gibeau took a cookie cutter to the recently published NPD sales figures for the last few months, fessing up that EA's Syndicate reboot bombed like a bomb shaped thing. 

"It didn't work out for us. We took a gamble on it, it didn't pay off" said Gibeau, failing to recognise that it might've had something to do with Syndicate being abso-fucking-lutely unlike its predecessors. 

SSX, however, fared much better with Gibeau describing it as "a very successful relaunch" - successful enough to ensure we'll see more from the SSX series (though, ffs, just TAKE A LOOK AT TRICKY BEFORE YOU GO AGAIN WON'T YOU, YOU GIMPS!)

All in all, not exactly a blistering year so far for EA. Can't wait to hear how monetizing Battlefield works out for 'em.
