As you can see, results were mixed. In the US, EA's market share actually rose, almost across-the-board, while in Europe, despite record sales of FIFA 09, EA's market share was down.

Note that this doesn't mean sales were necessarily down in the Old World. Just that EA's share of the market maybe didn't grow as quickly as others. Like, say, Nintendo.

That seems incredibly large. I imagine Activision is another 30% or so, meaning that the rest of the publishers out there make up just 40% combined.
