EA drops off NASDAQ 100

Electronic Arts has dropped from the NASDAQ 100, an index of the 100 largest non-financial stocks listed on the exchange. GamesIndustry International reports that the publisher didn't make the cut for this year's readjustment, though rival Activision Blizzard remains in the ranking.

Microsoft and Apple also retained their spots, though their business pursuits obviously range much further than just their gaming endeavors.

We'll learn more about EA's financial expectations (which it downgraded this quarter thanks in part to Medal of Honor: Warfighter's weak performance) when it releases its third quarter results in January.

I got a BA in journalism from Central Michigan University - though the best education I received there was from CM Life, its student-run newspaper. Long before that, I started pursuing my degree in video games by bugging my older brother to let me play Zelda on the Super Nintendo. I've previously been a news intern for GameSpot, a news writer for CVG, and now I'm a staff writer here at GamesRadar.
