Not so much a coincidence - This was an investor earnings conference 
call with shareholders, they were announcing a major aquisition., and 
this is the most important product of that major aquisition.

Now that they have further control of the game (Not that they didnt 
before - being the distributors) - They will rearrange the delivery time 
to even out the books over the year - Offset the aquisition costs with 
the additional revenue generated on a near quarter with a major product.

Get over the consipiracy theories, etc - EA is just a company out to 
most money for their shareholders. As a shareholder, i appreciate it :)


This is their 5 day stock outlook - 25th was the day of the conference 
call. See the stock jump?  :)
