Eidos banking on 10m PS3 bonanza

According to Parker Consulting, 360 is installed in over eight million homes globally – and Eidos chief financial officer Murphy told MCV that the publisher is looking for PS3 to reach or better that number by April next year, leaving the market ripe for Eidos' top-line franchises.

“We have absolutely no doubt that PS3 will be a very successful platform and we’re completely behind it,” said Murphy. “Ideally, we would like to have a market that is a worldwide installed base of eight to ten million PS3 units by the time we bring out our big products. But we’ll have to assess how that moves.”

“We will have some PS3 products over the coming months, but we’re holding back our major top line products until this time next year.”

The news comes after the Britsoft publisher released its financial interim results for the six months ended December 31st, 2006.

Parent company the SCi Group revealed that revenues stood at £74.5 million, up a healthy £24.4 million compared to the same period the previous year. Losses were reduced by £2 million year on year, totalling £17.9 million.
