EA: PC becoming biggest platform, digital distribution profits doubled this year

EA has been making a killing in the PC gaming space (unlike its performance with music-based games), the company revealed during its recent financial earnings report. Shacknews has reported that EA has seen profits from digital distribution on the PC platform double over last year to $80 million, whereas the company’s digital distribution revenue on the whole has generated $400 million for the company this fiscal year.

CFO Eric Brown says EA’s online business is growing at a phenomenal rate, “as much as 60% year over year.” As such, EA says “the PC is becoming the largest gaming platform in the world,” prompting the company to focus accordingly.
