PS3 Software Sales: Up 40 Percent Year on Year – EA

As expected, the PS3’s software adoption is growing at a very healthy rate in addition to the hardware market. Figures by EA denote that the PS3 software market is up a massive 40 percent.

Last night, in EA’s Q1 2011 earnings call, Electronic Arts CEO John Riccitiello stated that sales in the “high definition console market” are up 14% ($1.1 billion) year on year, and up 21% when calendar year 2010 is compared to 2009. He also said that PS3 software sales had grown 40 per cent year on year to date.

This is great news for Sony, especially with the overall software market dropping year-on-year the past few months. The next big hurdle for Sony is the launch of PlayStation Move, scheduled for next month.

Will Sony get even bigger next year?
