Electronic Arts has released its quarterly financial data for the 2006 holiday season. Total revenue was up slightly at $1.28 billion from October to December. Over 10 million games were sold in the Sims 2 subseries during that period, along with several million more Need for Speeds, FIFAs and Maddens. EA was the best selling game publisher on the original XBox, XBox 360, Playstation 2, Playstation 3, PC and PSP in both Europe and North America in 2006. Income from digital content distribution and cellular phone games were also each above $100 million for the last year. The company expects to end the fiscal year on March 31 with total revenue just above $3 billion.
"We are pleased with the performance of our products on next-generation consoles," said Larry Probst, Chairman and Chief Executive Officer. "In the year ahead, we plan to build on our leadership position on both the Xbox 360 and the PLAYSTATION 3, and to significantly increase our support for the Nintendo platforms."
