PS3 Now EA's Single Biggest Bread-Winner

Illustration for article titled PS3 Now EAs Single Biggest Bread-Winner

What a difference a year makes. This time last year, sales of PS3 games accounted for only $13 million of EA's total net revenue. But this time this year? PS3 games account for $139 million in sales. Which is a 969% increase, and is miles ahead of 360 sales, which "only" made the company $81 million. Don't bother asking us how this happened, we have no idea. As for the other systems, the PC was the second-biggest earner at $86 million (perhaps contributing to EA Sport's about-face), with PS2 sales just behind the 360 at $79 million. If you're after the information path less trodden, click through for the full breakdown, which includes stuff like DS and mobile sales.

@Black-Dog-Howls: That's the closest thing I can think of. Euro 2008 sold a million units in Europe, which can't have hurt.

As for everyone else complaining about the dates, the ones on the far right - Q1 09 - are for the quarter that just finished. They're not projections.
