They’ve also revealed that the company’s distribution service Origin has over 39 million registered users, 17 million of which are mobile users.
On the retail side of things, packaged games generated $568 million during the quarter ending December 31, a 23 percent drop from the $738 million they brought in during the same period in 2011.
Overall, EA revenue for the quarter is $1.18 billion, down from $1.6 billion at the same time last year, while non-GAAP diluted EPS was $0.57. Non-GAAP net income was $176 million from the quarter, down from $334 million in Q3 2011.
According to CEO John Riccitiello, the decline is due to consumer spending reflecting the console generation change, as Sony and Microsoft prepare to unveil their new systems.
