EA's Q1 earnings show PC generated more revenue than PS3

Electronic Arts, one of world’s biggest publishers, has released its Q1 financial results, which shows that PC games were a bigger revenue generator for the Redmond-based company than PS3.

The story is too old to be commented.

Because PS3 owners are more interested than mindless FPS

Some of PS3's most popular and top selling games are FPS.

You are remarkably fast with your damage control comments. I wouldn't call EA's battlefield 3 mindless considering It's the most strategic and thought inducing games in the industry.

FPS's are Sony fans favorite games

Let me get this right. You call me out because I like the Green Lantern?
What the heck are you talking about? What does your comment have to do with what dathreats said and my reply to him? LoL

Trying to call anyone else out when your name is greenpowerz.

In any case, why wouldn't PC sales be higher? Many people on PC bought Battlefield 3 Premium so it would only make sense.

You have no idea what you're talking about.

PS3's number one title is COD, which outsells all PS3 exclusives COMBINED (but then again, that's not that hard, as PS3 exclusives sell really bad - God of War's best-selling title sold less in its lifetime than Gears of War 3 sold in ONE MONTH).

Let's not turn this into a console war, please. This place has enough of that already.

There is truth in your words though. The Playstation does not shy away from its shooters.

DaThreat's post is pretty idiotic, considering. That isn't to say there aren't other popular genres on the platform, because there obviously are. But to act like 'da mindless shooters' don't reign supreme on all platforms, Playstation included, well, that's just not true.

Modern Warfare 3 sold 12 million on PS3. Gran Turismo 5 sold 7.5 million copies as of December 2011 (Official numbers). And Uncharted 3 sold around 4.5 million. Those 2 games right there equal MW3's numbers so your response is wrong for saying one games outsells all ps3 exclusives.

pr0digyZA1908d ago

He is probably talking about all cods not that specific one.

@Ryo-Hazuki:

Don't you see a problem with that?

A single CoD release that year beat out two major and I mean *major* exclusives combined?

The CoD franchise alone likely outsells all other PS3 exclusives combined.

So yes, PS3 gamers aren't really that different from Xbox 360 gamers contrary to belief here.

Your trolling level s -35.
Last kratos sold 5.2 million, and gears about 5.5 LIFETIME.

U do realise ps3 has highest software ratio of all consoles, 9.3????

Why do u even post garbage, selfownage or what

Well that isn't such a surprise with Origin and BF being released with a subscription service

greenpowerz1908d ago

Yeah you would have thought PC would have topped the 360 as well ;)

modesign1908d ago

EA makes games that cater to both 360, ps3, and pc. users will decide which EA games they want to play and which to skip. overall EA has make over 800 million in sales from all 3 combined.

Guys on average a PS3 exclusive sells 2 mill worldwide....(Do the research) . Its highest grossing exclusives are Gran Turismo (7-8 mill), Uncharted 2 (5.66 mill) ,Uncharted 3 (4.46 mill) , Metal Gear Solid 4 (5.65 mill) , God of War 3 (4.42 mill) and LittleBigPlanet (4.94 mill). Please stop saying Sony's exclusives don't sell. Most of these games reached millions of households without a budget of marketing that Microsoft spends. Also GTA4 sold 9.71 on 360 worldwide and 9.21 on PS3 worldwide. Call of Duty on average sells about 2 million more on 360 than PS3, but then again it is advertised for the 360. I wish people would stop acting like software doesn't sell on PS3.....ok Im done. lol
