Multi-platforming was a bad thing. With these good numbers I think it open other Dev eyes to the amount of money thats is there for them if they make games for most of the consoles. In the end I wonder if it will be these big Multi-Platforming game companies standing. just like EA makes big profits, Ubisoft and some other big names.

There is a little piece of the pie for everybody.

COD - is a nice series.
Guitar Hero - has struck a cord with casual gamers.
Marvel type games - are goin back to their roots.

Now how long till we see some new offerings? instead of sequals guys....

If this is true why were there massive lay-offs in their L.A. offices?

Can there be somthing bigger and better on the way, or it that how most of the profit was made?
