UBI will make SC conviction multi since they can make money from it by selling in USA as well as europe

RIP FLOP BOX 360

The Killer2826d ago

they tend to buy more of the same game because their beloved console keeps scratching and damaging the disks they put in!

while ps3 owner r the real ones that buy all type of games and have higher attach rate and their console is not hacked yet!

Hum...this is wierd. First, EA says they made more money on the PS3 (few months back) and now Ubisoft says the same. Something about people not buying games and stuff...just..not fitting here anymore.

Still, nothing beats NDS and those damn crappy games they've gotten from Ubi.

EDIT - Looking at the diagram more closely, something seems off. I know some companies Q1 of the next year start a fewmonths before the year begins, or a few months after, so I assume this is the case for Ubisoft talkinga bout Q2 sales of 08-09. So the 6 months of 2008/09 that I think the description may be referring to if anything, what would that mean in terms of actual months. Is that from april to 0ctober, or a future estimation.

Genesis52826d ago (Edited 2826d ago )

Yeah I read the same thing about EA. What's up with the 360 attach ratio. What games are they attaching? Not many of EA's or Ubisofts, 2 of the biggest publishers.

Really for an 8.1 games to consoles stat. Shouldn't somebody be making money off of it.

supahbad2826d ago (Edited 2826d ago )

yeah weird was the first thing i thought too, how can it be the hardest to develop on with the lowest install base, and still be making third parties decent profits? maybe 360 fans are just holding out for their first party titles this year

Edit: and shouldn't games written on blu ray cost more too? i'm not getting this economy right now.

dro2826d ago (Edited 2826d ago )

and they said ps3 owners only buy blu ray movies and not games.... :/ !!!!!

Coheno2826d ago (Edited 2826d ago )

Jep, somethings going on! Probably M$ taking high fee's for publishing on their platform? Can't see where else their making money in their gaming division?!

After a closer look, maybe not. It says sales, not earnings? Wierd

morganfell2826d ago

These companies have to furnish the cold hard facts to investors and can't dilly dally with numbers the way MS does when they are trying to mislead the public.

Some of us aren't so US Centric and know that there is a big wide world out there where MS has an infinitely harder time in attempting to snow people about what is really happening in the console war.

ruibing2826d ago

@Genesis5
I'm pretty sure that tie ratio was from NPD, so it only counts for the US.

@supahbad
I'm not sure about development cost, since they are split down the middle with all major titles being cross platformers. But making games on Blu Ray shouldn't cost much more than DVDs ever since the PS3 supported LTH technolgy, which basically lets normal DVD assembly lines to easily converted to support Blu Ray. You can read it up, but Blu Ray cost less in terms of only having a single polymer side but evens the cost up with protective coating. I really don't think it makes much of a difference when they are made in the millions.

The Matrix2826d ago

Why do they have fallout 3 as one of their games?

Flipgeneral2826d ago

Piracy might be the culprit for these odd events!
My friend does not have a SINGLE legit game! (I do NOT support piracy btw, I give him crap for it every time)

NaiNaiNai2826d ago (Edited 2826d ago )

yea that is odd. >.> and they aren't the publishers since Bethesda Softworks
and ZeniMax Media, are labeled as the publishers, someone mind explaining.
-nai-

sonarus2826d ago

Its fukin Europe. That has to be the explanation. But who really knows. All i know is that DLC will soon start to get costly for microsoft:)

uxo222826d ago

Well before sounding the conspiracy theory horn, there are several things to be considered here. Obviously Apr 08 - Mar 09

1. Are they counting any games that were released on the 360 prior to the report.

2. What does the lifetime xbox 360 attach rate have to do with the UBISOFT 08/09 Fiscal report showing PS3 with higher sales.

3. The PS3 had Haze and Prince of Persia classic release in this period. Haze being an exclusive and Prince of Persia Class was release outside of the quarter for the 360. There are probably other titles that fit this same criteria that is not being considered.

4. This reports is only covering the first half of the fiscal year, still one half to go.

5. Page 3 of the report says: "This statement may contain estimated financial data, information on future projects and transactions and future business results/performance. Such forward-looking data are provided for estimation purposes only."

Just something to ponder. Additionally is this for the entire UBISOFT company or is this report for European sales?

kwicksandz2826d ago

Looks like haze didn't flop sales wise as much as it did reviews wise!

shine13962826d ago (Edited 2826d ago )

both x360 and ps3 are on 20 percent. Where did you get the summary figures from?

Edit: Just read it a second time to confirm....Shame on all of you. I won't be taking off bubbles but jeez.

Coheno2826d ago (Edited 2826d ago )

Obviously NOT Apr 08- Mar 09. It says period ending Sep 2009, so it's probably Okt. 08-Sep. 09, thats their fiscal year.

Beast_Master2825d ago (Edited 2825d ago )

HAZE!!! Was not multi-plat game folks. that is why PS3 has higher sales. I am sure if Take-Two posted their earnings from last year it would be flipped because they had Bio-shock and GTA4 plus 360 didn't have MLB the Show to compete with. Then if they showed this year PS3 would be higher because it has Bio-shock.

I hate 360 by the way, but let's have a little better prospective.

Now if EA or Activision say they made more on PS3 that would be big, but I doubt it with Rock Band 2(EA) timed exclusive and L4D (EA) not being on PS3.

uxo222825d ago (Edited 2825d ago )

Man who knows, It says that the halfway point ended sept 08, therefore I'm guessing they FY is actually Apro 08 - Mar 09. Not Sept 09.

Page 2: "Paris, October 23, 2008 – Today, Ubisoft reported its sales for the fiscal half-year ended
September 30, 2008."

When we look at the software sales its always usa so we think the xbox 36 is winning but not it isn't ps3 is winning worldwide.

Silogon2826d ago

No way Ps3 sold more software for Ubi and Ea now... That's gotta be pretty telling for these 3rd party comapanies and maybe this is the reason why Ea has been making the Ps3 the lead on a lot of their newer games.

Strange days. 14% stock drops, 20% software increases... this gen is the most unpredictable one in years.

pwnsause2826d ago (Edited 2826d ago )

well it just shows that those anti-PS3 articles are invalid in every way, shape and form, its just a bunch of fanboys writing articles.

tocrazed4you2826d ago (Edited 2826d ago )

Are you still in denial? THIS CAME FROM UBISOFT THEMSELVES ARE YOU TELLING ubisoft that they are wrong?
ANd yes it is unpredictable take the wii.. nintendo found a new market of families and kids and they are focusing on them while leaving the hardcore market for xbox 360 and ps3

pwnsause2826d ago

Siligon is just surprised that the crap articles that he reads on the Internet from anti-PS3 fanboys are just fake, and this article proves it. this is why EA went PS3 lead earlier in the Year. and it shows that we PS3 gamers love to Watch movies and Play Video games all the time thanks to the versitility of the PS3.

ultimolu2826d ago

Go Sony! :D
That's pretty cool.
