EA crowned top publisher of 2010

Electronic Arts has been named the leading games publisher for the second year in a row.

The firm took the biggest share of the UK games market in 2010 in terms of revenue generated from games and units sold – as it did in 2009.

Data from GfK Chart-Track revealed that Activision Blizzard and Nintendo took the second and third biggest share of the market in terms of value, while Ubisoft and Nintendo were the No.2 and No.3 publishers in terms of games sold.

2010 was also a bumper year for Microsoft as Xbox 360 took the biggest console market share. It took 35.2 per cent of the market in terms of value and 28.9 per cent of total retail game sales.
