EA is turning back into a god company.I wonder,if they would give PS3 any preference over 360 because of the higher revenue



Its funny, its been said a couple of times in this thread that the non GAAP numbers are the reality for EA (otherwise they wouldn't release them) which shows quite clearly Wii > 360 > PS3.



Tease.

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.


This is what I noticed. Clearly the report shows that EA made more money from the 360 games than PS3 games.

What's interesting to is that almost all PS3 EA games on release retail at £59.99 in UK, while 360 games retailed at £49.99. You can always expect exactly the same game on PS3 to retail for more here in the UK on PS3.

We have gone through this before. IIRC, EA seems to use a different revenue recognition model for the PS3 games for some reason that shifts revenues around. The 360 uses a more straight forward model.



It will take the PS3 two or three years to close down the 8.3 million gap on the 360. So PS3 games generate more revenue than 360 according to EA financial statements. FIFA sells more on PS3 is the main answer.

This doesnt make sense, EA has exclusives for 360 such as L4D and Mass Effect 2, both really popular. There are also atleast 6 million more 360 owners... This is crazy if true.

but non of those games came out last quarter.so that's a moot point.

 

 

but the decision to give X360 exclusives and not put it on  PS3 is looking kinda stupid now.

Yes.  EA must really be regretting the massive sales of those two games.

If this great mystery doesn't get an explanation, then I'm leaving the sales analyzing business.

EA getting higher revenue from selling PS3 games than X360 games just doesn't make any sense.


The article link in the OP is clueless?

denial is the first step towards acceptance ;)

I think you need to stop posting.

It has been shown that actual revenue before GAAP is applied easily favours the Xbox 360.

In fact, to preserve credibility, you may wish to add that too your OP.

Big deal.
