Ubisoft quarterly sales rise 90.5 pct, lifts goals

Ubisoft, Europe's largest video games publisher, raised its full-year 2007/08 financial goals on Tuesday after posting a forecast-beating 90.5 percent jump in first-quarter revenue.

Sales reached 134 million euros ($185.1 million) in the April-June quarter, beating the company's forecast for around 120 million.

The company, known for hit game "Prince of Persia", tied its strong performance to early positioning on games for new generation consoles, which accounted for 79 percent of sales in the quarter, against 42 percent in the year-ago period.

The story is too old to be commented.

Good news. Hopefully with the success of games like Assassin's Creed and Haze, Ubi will give us more great and original games.

(Waiting for FarCry 2 announcement for consoles.)

i just hope they change splinter cell im tired of making one mistake and your looking at a ending screen, only certain intence sections should have this gameplay like in mgs when you had to sneak past 50 marines
