PS3 outperforms Xbox 360 for EA again

Forums - Gaming Discussion - PS3 outperforms Xbox 360 for EA again

The original article is actually incorrect and posted net revenue. The real numbers after GAAP gains and losses is as follows

Wii 184
X360 136
PS3 99

This seems to get reported incorrectly every time buy a few sites. Basically in the consoles Wii sells the most followed by 360 followed by PS3. It would be helpful if the original poster would check the financial report before posting bad earnings.

^^So what does GAAP and non-GAAP mean?



GAAP is the standard accounting that every company follows, I'm not an accountant so can't help you with the details. Non_GAAP is a companies own accounting standards that are designed to give investors more insight, again what that consists of I coudln't tell you.

But I can read a financial report and the adjustments made to net revenue are pretty clear. Sorry I can't be of more help.

Ignore what this post said before edit, I had the wrong link :)

Matches what Scat said.



i wonder if its because EA games are more popular in Europe, where the gap between 360 and PS3 is smaller.

well, i normally get EA games on my 360, idk why, just do, lol



^^^That's the wrong one from that site hit the current tab and you'll get the correct 1st fiscal quarter 2010 results.

Here you go, Onyx.

Thanks man.

Ok so it's the quarter ending June 30th, making the start date likely April 1st. Here's what was released on PS3 and 360. There were no exclusives.

Fight Night Round 4
Harry Potter and the Half Blood Prince
The Godfather II
Tiger Woods PGA Tour 10
Rock Band Track Pack Classic Rock

What I don't understand is that the 360 versions of all of these games outsold the PS3 versions, or in the case of Harry Potter, matched them. The 360 has a couple hundred thousand more across the five titles, but understand this doesn't take into consideration Rock Band downloads, however even that would supossedly favor the 360. Does anyone smarter than me want to venture into why the PS3 accounted for more revenue than the 360?

BTW, congrats to EA for great Wii business. They truly do get it.

Definitly NOT smarter, but there are two things going on here: 1) GAAP is a standard, but as with all standards, does not perfectly report business revenue for all types of businesses, that is why EA finds it important to include non-GAAP earnings as well (peep those, paint a bit of a different picture, huh?), and 2)  Microsoft and Sony report thier revenues from on-line sales diferently; Sony reports them in the quarter they occur, MS ammortizes them throughout the year.  Can't find the link on that, but will update when/if I do.
