EA's fourth quarter reports were also up. Net revenue for the quarter ending March 31, 2004 was up 29 per cent at $598 million, with sales driven by "James Bond 007: Everything or Nothing"; "Need for Speed Underground"; "NFL STREET"; "MVP Baseball 2004" and "Final Fantasy X-2".
Looking into the future, EA expects net revenue for the current fiscal year, ending March 31, 2005 to be up 10-15% over fiscal 2004.
During an open conference call discussing the latest numbers, EA confirmed support for both the PSP and Nintendo DS. EA's CEO Larry Probst went so far as to say he had expectations that the PSP will be "as big as the GameBoy at some point in the future". Without providing titles, Probst confirmed EA's intention to release four to six EA titles for the PSP this fiscal year. He declined comments on the development of any Nintendo DS titles.
