REDWOOD CITY, Calif. (AP) ' Video game maker Electronic Arts says its second-quarter loss expanded from a year ago due to cost increases on marketing and research, even as revenue grew.

Excluding stock compensation costs, acquisition expenses and other costs, adjusted earnings came to 5 cents per share.



Analysts polled by FactSet were looking for an adjusted loss of 4 cents per share.

Revenue rose 13 percent to $715 million from $631 million.

Shares closed up 11 cents at $24.50 before the results were released.
