No Comment 23 Views

Sales for the first quarter totaled €161 million, up 94 percent, or up 81 percent at constant exchange rates, compared with the €83 million recorded for the first quarter 2009-10.

As announced on July 12th, sales for the first-quarter of 2010-11 exceeded the guidance (of approximately €145 million) announced at the time of the 2009-10 full-year earnings communication. This is due to:

  • The solid performance of Tom Clancy’s Splinter Cell Conviction, which sold in 1.9 million units
  • A good performance by back-catalog and casual titles, spurred by the sustained sales of Just Dance, as well as Assassin’s Creed® II and Avatar
  • A favorable exchange rate impact
