During a conference call with investors yesterday, Electronic Arts touted the success of their skateboarding franchise Skate, saying the game has sold nearly two times the number of copies of the latest Tony Hawk game.
EA's Warren C. Jenson said:
"SKATE, a new and highly rated IP from our Black Box studio, outperformed an entrenched competitor. Despite the fact that we launched on three fewer platforms, we realized a 55% revenue share in North America. On current generation systems, SKATE outsold Tony Hawk nearly 2 to 1."
