Electronic Arts just posted its financial results for the first quarter of fiscal year 2015, and they revealed a quite positive outcome, with sales and income both above predictions.
It's nice to see the industry thriving after all the naysayers before. Even though it's EA, they are huge and they employ a lot of people and from what I have seen when I go game testing they treat their employees well and have an awesome setup. They even have a doggy daycare their for workers to bring there pets, not to mention full size soccer fields and basketball courts ect
The PS4 and XB1 are growing very well. At this point they're generating a whole lot more revenue than the PS3 and 360, and their year on year growth is up dramatically. The PC is also doing very well (similar to what we saw in Ubisoft's recent financial report). In terms of non-GAAP revenue we see the PC at 220 and the PS4 and XB1 combined at 234. And as expressed as percentages of non-GAAP revenue the PC generated 32% while the PS4/XB1 together generated 34%.
These numbers are not impressive. I thought EA being the biggest publisher with all the fingers in all the console and PC pies should be earning more than this. Valve's DoTA 2 makes 18 million per month. League of Legends is rumored to make 18 million every week!! Steam generated 1.5 billion in 2014 in revenue from only digital downloads with virtually zero advertising cost.
true. only real money makers EA has are FIFA and Madden.
Top grossing game of this generation for the console is Destiny. An Activision game. The scary thing is that if they go free to play in the near future Activision could make even more money.
Destiny is the top grossing game ? i would have expected a game like COD or FIFA tbh.
Look at the revenue from FY15Q1 for the 360/PS3 moving to the current gen... looks like more and more people are moving.
