I like these financial blurbs. The business of games is always interesting to me. I wish a smaller company would give more insight into how one goes from idea to $ just for informational purposes to gamers. The big ones are always just playacting to the street and giving stereotypical earnings jargin.
Not sure if I'd call it "play acting." These financial reports are for one purpose - telling their investors how the company's going. Said investors are most likely long-time players on Wall Street and therefore naturally have their own shorthand, just as we gamers do.
