Gamastura reports on EA's record-breaking revenue
for the 2006 Christmas season. The company reported $1.281 billion in their revenue stream, fueled by the Sims
, and Need for Speed
franchises. The company's financials talk was also a surprise opportunity to pledge support for Nintendo consoles
. Electronic Arts aims to be 'the #2 publisher' for the Nintendo DS and the Wii. The company has 15 products already in the pipe for the two platforms, with a DS version of both Spore
and The Sims
slated for release this year. This move, CEO Larry Probst was quick to point out, is not at the expense of the other systems. Their acquisition of the Headgate studio has given them additional resources, and they are choosing to 'aggressively' pursue the marketplace.
