    Just for them to sell 100,000 copies, they make 6 Million.
    I'm not an expert but i think you have to consider the following costs :

    -Production costs
    -server costs
    -development costs
    -service costs
    -The latests simcity probably lowered the companies value too .
    -transport costs
    -taxes also make the price higher

    Maxis used to be a great company. They got fucked over when EA bought them out.
    I am the seer in the dark,
    the vagabond of yore,
    valediction.
    I am the sum of all your parts,
    and proprietor of all.
    A miasma,
    the conclusion,
    blackmonger of Inlé,
    valediction.
    Synapses fray,
    my form now vivid,
    as torpor sets and blood grows tepid.
    With every ounce of flesh now offered,
    I hold your corpse within my coffers.
    Knitted cells now split asunder,
    stand alongside me brother.
    Take your place amongst my Owsla,
    we march at dawn now and forever.

    Outsourcing fees. Developer fees. Import fees. Production costs. Paying the employees. Depending on location fees pertaining to the geographical location of the developer/production facilities. Advertising (which is fucking expensive for one single-minute commercial) Etc.

    EA doesn't make all of the money. They make a percentage based on their publishing rights and dependent on the commercial contract.
