Ubisoft sees strong performance on DS platform

Nintendo handheld accounted for nearly a third of French publisher's 2008-9 sales

Ubisoft's latest financial release reveals that the Nintendo DS was the company's most successful platform in the last fiscal year, which ended on March 31, 2009.

The publisher noted that 29 per cent of sales across the year were for its DS titles, including the hugely popular Imagine and Petz ranges, followed by 20 per cent on the PlayStation 3.

The Xbox 360 was third, with 19 per cent of sales, while the Wii took 18 per cent and the PC platform 9 per cent.

The PlayStation Portable's influence on Ubisoft sales was negligible at 3 per cent, although the company has announced plans to release Assassin's Creed for the platform this year.

In terms of the geographical split in sales, Europe accounted for 54 per cent for the full year while the US took 40 per cent, with the remaining 6 per cent spread across the rest of the world.
