The UK’s gaming newsdesk, VG247, has a comprehensive round-up of EA’s recent financials, including that $1.08 billion loss for past financial year. There’s a whole bunch of other information in there, going a long way into clarifying EA’s business practices over the past twelve months. Most relevantly to our deskbox platform, the majority of EA releases last year were on PC. More interesting still was the admission by EA CFO Eric Brown that digital downloads on PC would become the dominant force in gaming. “The PC is becoming the largest gaming platform in the world,” said Brown. “Just not in a packaged-good product.”
Also revealed in the figures was that Spore sold 2 million copies, and that Warhammer Online had 300,000 subs at the end of March.
