EA financial results show growing PC market, declining consoles

Posted on Friday, July 26 2013 @ 09:49:58 CEST by

EA's financial results show that despite sluggish sales of PCs, revenue from PC gaming rose by 8 percent compared to the same quarter last year. Full details at The Tech Report.
The graph should be self-explanatory; it shows EA's net quarterly revenue over the past five years for each major gaming platform. As you can see, console numbers are subject to kind of a see-saw pattern, and PC figures have their ups and downs, too. Still, it's clear that EA's PC gaming business is growing. Also, especially over the past couple of years, EA's PC revenue looks very respectable compared to what the company makes from the Xbox 360 and PlayStation 3.

We can smooth out the see-saw pattern by looking at yearly revenue. Doing so eliminates data from EA's latest fiscal quarter, but it still shows us an encouraging trend for the PC. Additionally, it reveals that EA's mobile gaming business isn't as big as one would thinkā€”nor is it growing as much as one would expect. (For the record, the "total mobile and handheld" numbers combine game revenue data for phones, tablets, and portable consoles like the PlayStation Vita and Nintendo DS.)
