What The? PS3 Earns More for EA than 360

EA let loose some financials yesterday, and the results are very interesting. EA’s software sales for the PS3 between April and June 2008 increased 969% over the same period last year. The PS3 is now EA’s biggest source of gold since the beginning of 2008.

Dollar earnings per console during the quarter:

PS3 – 139 million
PC – 86 million
360 – 81 million
PS2 – 79 million
PSP – 57 million
Wii – 57 million
mobile – 44 million
DS – 21 million

The remarkable things to me are that EA didn’t publish any big title or PS3 exclusive, and that the PS3’s installed base is lower than the 360’s. Where’s all this money come from? I’d like to see a breakdown of which games helped out PS3’s huge share. And does this mean that EA will pay attention to us PS3 owners a bit more? How about giving us some timed exclusives?

PS3 games earn big bucks for EA News

Update: reading the results, it looks like these were the releases in the quarter for the PS3:

Battlefield: Bad Company
NASCAR 09
UEFA EURO 2008

And for the 360:

Battlefield: Bad Company
Command & Conquer 3: Kane’s Wrath
NASCAR 09
UEFA EURO 2008
