Half of EA’s revenue comes from the Xbox 360

According to EA’s recent filing, Xbox 360 software made up half of the revenue EA made from console game sales in the third quarter. They’re like a super-powered mega-American tag team.

Xbox 360 software pulled in $218 million for the publisher while Sony and Nintendo split the other half, with $111 million coming from the PS2, PS3, and PSP and $106 million from the Wii and DS.

According to GamePro, Xbox 360 sales were up 31 percent over last year, as were DS sales (from $14 million to $47 million). The PlayStation 2 suffered the biggest drop, as sales fell to $73 million from $269 million.

The last quarter should prove to be pretty interesting as EA has a huge line up set to come out this holiday season.
