EA Mobile sees Q3 FY14 sales up 13% to $97 million

EA (NASDAQ: EA) has announced its preliminary Q3 financials for the three months ending 31 December 2013.

Total sales were $808 million, down 12 percent year-on-year.

The company made a loss of $308 million, compared to a loss of $45 million 12 months ago.

It said this was due to a faster-than-expected decline in PlayStation 3 and Xbox 360 game sales; something not compensated by the launch of PlayStation 4 and Xbox One.

Homer hit

Breaking out EA Mobile's figures, EA noted that December was its biggest month ever in terms of downloads, with over 71 million installs across the Apple App Store and Google Play.

In addition, The Simpsons: Tapped Out hit a record level of daily active users during the holiday quarter.

The game has now generated over $130 million in lifetime revenue, that's $30 million up on the $100 million EA announced during its FY13 Q2 figures.

Sales-wise, EA Mobile generated $97 million, up 13 percent year-on-year.

The company had cash and short-term investments at the end of the quarter worth $2.07 billion.
