Revenue By Platform (in millions):
PlayStation 3: 139
PlayStation 2: 79
Shocking I know, especialy considering they've released more games for 360. PSP tied with Wii also suprising.
That really wonders me... So the PS3 is MORE casual than the 360... (I consider nigh on each EA game casual)
Wii is explained easy... They didn't release that many games for it^^
Kept you waiting
This is just for the quarter and is reversed for every other quarter aside from this one.
The reason for the big boost this quarter is because of FIFA and UEFA. Those sold tremendously well in Europe (which is not only Sony's best market right now but also the most financially weighted).
The next quarter will have Madden, Tiger Woods and such and the X360 and Wii will move back ahead of PS3.
Normally i would say PS3 owners were idiots for spending so much on EA but EA have thoroughly impressed me this year with Burnout and Bad Company.
Add to that great looking IP's like Mirrors Edge Dead Space, Spore, possibly Fifa 09 and Red Alert that i have already placed pre-orders for which is rare for me when it comes to EA. Well done EA and the CEO Riccitiello you kept your word.
Both developed by other companies (Criterion & DICE).Burnout and Bad Company
The only game this gen that was developed by EA and impressed me to a certain degree was skate.. Wheres my SSX btw.?
Didn't the next-gen SSX get cancelled in favour of that Wii one?
Note of advice: If you aren't willing to support the platform properly upon it's success, then don't bother alluding to any numbers about how it has made you successful.
This news gets thumbs down
Cliff, I don't mean to in that manner. Just that the PS3 doesn't make them the most revenue on average and as far as profits go, it's at the lowest. If a thread is going to suggest something false, I'm going to say something about it.
EA reported huge losses recently due to not making profits off their HD games.
EA made $3.7 billion in revenue last fiscal year (using standard FY calendar). Far more than any other 3rd party publisher yet they tallied a loss of $454 million.
