EA Generates $90 Million in Digital Distribution Sales in Three Months

Electronic Arts amassed over $90 million in direct digital sales in the first quarter of its 2008 fiscal year, the company announced today.

The sales figures include revenue generated by the company's EA Store, which offers direct downloads of its catalog of PC titles and a variety of games for mobile phones, as well as games and content on the Xbox Live Marketplace and the PlayStation Network.

In addition to games, the company also offers music via the EA Store's EA Trax division, serving direct downloads of soundtracks from such titles as EA Maxis' SimCity Societies and EA Montreal's Army of Two.

Soundtracks featuring licensed music such as the Madden NFL and NBA Live series are offered via Apple's iTunes music download service, and are likely not counted as part of the $90 million revenue figure.
