PS3 now on parity with Xbox 360 for EA

Sony's console recovers lost ground on Microsoft's machine while Wii revenues tumble.

EA made as much money on PS3 software as it did on Xbox 360 for the first time in the quarter ending December 31st 2010.

Net revenue for PS3 was up 19 per cent year-on-year to $282m. In contrast, Xbox 360 revenues fell 18 per cent to $285m, leaving both with a 27 per cent share of EA's total market.

I hope not. I hope nintendo makes a real machine next time but I doubt it.

Spitfire_Riggz2875d ago

I havent bought a nintendo console since the 64. My favorite console of all time personally. Hopefully they give me a good reason to buy their new console

trancefreak2875d ago

ya i have a wii but I remember waiting for super Mario 64 and also the delay of the console. Good times I loved the 64.

I offically own all 3. Wii is the only console nobody touches lol....wouldnt be suprised to see Wii 2, but I too would absolutely love to see Wii compete instead of taking the casual route.

I remember seeing this story a few days ago this is a duplicate.

PS3 and XBOX 360 both with a 27 per cent share.

Nice way to restate the article. lol

ChristianGamer2875d ago

I'm still shocked that ever since the ps3 launched, this is the first quarter that it made EA as much money(3 million less actually) as the 360.
We aren't even talking entire financial year here, just one quarter. Ps3 was up 19%, 360 down 18% too meaning ps3 is yet to even reach the heights 360 has for EA.
All of this and EA have been yapping about how 360 will never be as popular as ps3. Talk about not knowing which side your bread is buttered

BIGBOSS082874d ago

but i clearly remember other article before where EA made more on ps3. is it really the first time? especially with FIFA and ps3 in europe.

I think I remember reading that too about a year, year and a half ago.

TheGameFoxJTV2874d ago

@base, just discredited this site's information.

GrandTheftZamboni2874d ago (Edited 2874d ago )

No debate that 360 was more popular than PS3 in its first year. 360's first year that is.

Soldierone2874d ago

Yeah the PS3 didnt even sell a single console! :D haha, however the first year PS3 was actually on the market it was expensive and had no games so id give 360 two years, or at least a year and a half.

But now its PS3's time to shine.

let me tell you mi friend that the truth hurts
360 will never be as popular as ps3, EA name brand was made in the ps2 era,.... they know who is the cook in the kitchen and thats sony 20+ studios pumping games powerhouse. Sony dont loose they make the console and feeds from it.

Good old Sony, always bringing up the rear.

SuperStrokey11232874d ago

Did you even read it? Its on par with first... hardly the rear...

jony_dols2874d ago

'Sony, always bringing up the rear'

Hmm you've obviously never heard of the best selling console of all time. Does the PS2 ring any bells?

147 mil sold and still counting.

dead_eye2874d ago

151 million according to an article on here the other day.
