NOT LOOKING BACK: EA CEO Andrew Wilson appeared on CNBC's "Closing Bell" yesterday afternoon where he discussed the $20M settlement in a lawsuit over NCAA athletes marketing rights and how it will affect the company's strategy going forward in its sports games. He noted the settlement wouldn't "impact us a great deal." Wilson said EA has "moved away from making college-themed sports properties." He added, "We're focused on our core 'Madden NFL' product and really looking forward to continue to drive innovation and creativity in and around that product. So our focus has moved away and we haven't spent a lot of time on it recently" ("Closing Bell," CNBC, 6/9).
