EA sees Parity Between Xbox 360 and PS3

by | @AttackFanboy | on February 12, 2011

Electronic Arts is starting to see parity between the Xbox 360 and PS3.  They don’t look at it like you and I do though, they see it in terms of dollars.  In the recent quarter ending December 31st, 2011 Electronic Arts made as much money selling PS3 software as it did selling Xbox 360.  Which is a stark comparison to the 2009 numbers.  In 2009 Xbox 360 held a 28% piece of EA’s total revenue while PS3 held 19%.  This significant move up may be partly attributable to the Wii’s numbers being down in 2010 for the company.

Are more people starting to purchase multiplatform titles on the PS3?  By EA’s account it’s apparent that they are.  2011 is also a huge year for multiplatform titles from the publisher.  Games like the EA Sports titles and their perennial sales feats, accompanied by Crysis 2, Bulletstorm, Mass Effect 3, and Shift 2 will likely be big sellers for the company.  Who will they sell more for?  It looks like we’ll have to wait until next year to find out.
