Games sales help to boost Warner Bros. Q4 and full-year results
Division containing games up 9% after 6 million Batman AC shipped
Time Warner's Filmed Entertainment division, which includes the entirety of its video games arm, has recorded an increase of nine per cent to it's full-year sales figures, resulting in revenues of $12.6 billion (£8bn).
This section of the business also includes films and television, so the real impact of software is hard to judge, but Batman: Arkham City, Mortal Kombat 9 and several LEGO titles were highlighted as significant factors in the company's report.
It was also clarified that Arkham City shipped over six million units worldwide.
Whilst the figures for the Filmed Entertaiment division aren't broken down to show the performance of the various component sectors, it should be noted that the year saw the release of Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows: Part 2, helping Time Warner to break the $4 billion barrier on cinema revenues for a record third year in a row.
Adjusted operating income for Filmed Entertainment saw a big spike for the year, too, rising 16 per cent to $1.3 billion.
