The nine year-old PlayStation 2 maintains its relevance in the marketplace for Activision, even at the expense of its younger brother.
Activision, the world's largest third-party gaming publisher, netted more than $3 billion in 2008, Kotaku reported on Friday. Coming as no surprise: World of Warcraft, Wii, and Guitar Hero drove a majority of said sales.
On the flipside, PlayStation sold the least amount of console product for the gaming giant, underscoring the stark role reversal of Nintendo and Sony in just three years. The PS2 accounted for $284 million in net sales for Activision, while the PS3 accounted for $241 million. You read that right. Activision made more revenue on PS2 than the PS3 last year.
