Electronic Arts Looks Toward More Price Cuts, Digital Sales, Motion Controls

The numbers are in and EA seems pleased with their financial results for Q1 2012. They have announced the preliminary results for the first fiscal quarter of 2012, which ended on June 30, 2011. Due to both digital sales and retails sales growth, EA plans on "increasing non-GAAP digital revenue guidance to a range of $1.100 billion to $1.150 billion for fiscal 2012." This means they think they're going to make bank in 2012, especially from digital games.

Some of EA's wins included Portal 2, which sold 2 million units in the first quarter, Crysis 2 sold  3 million since launch and both Dead Space 2 and Dragon Age 2 sold over 2 million units to date. EA published four of the top 20 games in Western markets with Portal 2, Crysis 2, FIFA 11, and Tiger Woods 12: The Masters.

Electronic Arts has high hopes for the rest of the year and they included a list of upcoming games to prove it. Kingdoms of Amalur: Reckoning is listed for Q4, making the a February release date likely. Noticeably absent from the list was Star Wars: The Old Republic. Don't panic though, during their Comic-Con panel it was announced the game would be Holiday 2011. My fingers are still crossed for a SW:TOR 2011 release.
