Have the suits won?


Recommended Posts

With figures like these why would Ubisoft give a **)* about what we think. They can count on new gamers loving their product which will sell enough copies to break even on PC. PC gaming magasines will sell it for them. Meanwhile they reel in the cash fromthe kids with the consoles.

And we're left with disconnects and poorly tested software. No one can claim that this software was well tested. So ladies, gentlemen and gamers.........................................Have the suits won???

DUN DUN DUN...

Please.. only reply with your best one liners.... :hehe:

Ubisoft six-month earnings up 13 percent

Six-month sales top $218.4 million in gross revenue; GRAW singled out as prime revenue driver.

Today, Ubisoft reported its earnings for the six months ended September 30, 2006, the first half of its fiscal year. Like many publishers, the company beat expectations, reporting 172 million euros ($218.4 million) in gross sales--a 13 percent year-on-year increase from the same period last year.

"Ubisoft achieved a strong first semester, exceeding our first expectations by 25 percent," said CEO Yves Guillemot, referring to the company's initial projections. "This performance results from the quality and diversity of our catalogue [and] the strength of our distribution network, which allows for efficient promotion of our games and brings us an increasing number of publishing and distribution deals."

Of all Ubisoft's titles, Guillemot singled out the Xbox 360 version of Tom Clancy's Ghost Recon Advanced Warfighter for particular praise. Developed at the publisher's Montreal studio, the critically acclaimed third-person shooter's premium map pack was downloaded 150,000 times on Microsoft's online service. Ubi's announcement did not break down sales of the map pack by territory, but it did say the publisher received 3 million euros ($3.8 million) of income from sales on Xbox Live Marketplace, most of which came from GRAW.

Looking forward, Ubisoft now forecasts sales of around 270 million euros ($342.9 million) in its third financial quarter, which will end on December 31, 2006. If the prediction proves accurate, the publisher will enjoy an 8-12 percent year-on-year increase in quarterly income over the previous year--up from the previous estimate of a 5-10 percent increase.

Its the old saying..........." Nothing succeeds like success........."

From their perspective, I guess they have, (well not won), but certainly put a lot of money in their pockets. THAT, will keep you around a long time. Profit.

I guess they have certainly re-directed the game players towards a more .....simple, linear-scripted style , predictable enemy spawns and few choices of where to go. I would have thought that it would be easier to create a game with just "objectives" and not a scripted missions, but I am wrong.

Very little re-play value, and within a short period of time, looking for the "next" installment, because I have finished this one.

There are so few choices of what I call a "tactical-FPS". Perhaps Rogue Warrior will fill the void.

Still hopeful, .............but growing disappointed.....................Kingkat

The problem with the internet is that a small but vocal community such as this one can fool itself into thinking it's the majority.

We don't matter at all.

So, yeah, ubisoft won. Along with most videogame players, who just happen to be too content to log onto message boards and whine.
