PS3 brings in the money for EA

EA Games Financials Okay I am confused…

In November last year it was announced that the 360 brought in something silly like 12 times more money for EA than the PS3.

Fast forward through to July 2008 and now the PS3 is bringing EA 1.5 times the amount of money as the 360…

But having said that, I haven’t seen a single PS3 EA game that has outsold the 360 version by 12:1 or even 2:1…

So how did this happen? Can anyone remember what was released in Q1 2008 on the PS3 that did so well?

Another notable number is that the PS3’s sales are up 969% year on year

    Ive read somewhere that it due to popualrity of the sport (ie soccer) titles in EU and the strength of the Euro. We all know that the US stuff is allot cheaper than EU/UK.
