RE: Ubisoft:first-half 2008-09 sales, PS3 Top console earner
Well there are a few reasons:
1. PS3 sells much more worldwide than in NA. They are very popular in Europe (except UK its 60 to 40 for 360) and Japan (don't let the 5 week X360 win streak fool you, they have made gains of thousands, while PS3 leads like 2.3 mill to 750,00)
Ex. PES (soccer) for PS3 sold 400 k compared to 150 k (360) in Europe.
2. Ubisoft makes 65 percent revenue in Europe. + Haze was released, it ended up making decent profit.
3. Yes, Microsoft might have higher royalties + piracy might play a little bit into this.
People keep bringing up NPD numbers but in reality, WW sales are bigger than NA, and PS3 has that over the 360.
