Our favorite part of Ubisoft's recent financial report was the game schedule for the 09/10 fiscal year, but there's one other intriguing aspect that will appeal to PlayStation 3 owners.

One might assume that with the user base difference between the PS3 and Xbox 360, publishers will rake in more profit from Microsoft's system when it comes to multiplatform titles. Well, Ubisoft does multiplats and yet, according to the report, Sony's machine was actually their top sales generator. It came in at 20% while the 360 and Wii followed closely behind at 19% and 18% respectively, but again, it's the user base discrepancy that matters. Despite that, the PS3 still competed favorably, which is good news for the future: Ubisoft won't be ignoring Sony's console for future projects, now will they? As for the year-over-year statistics, the PS3 stayed steady at that 20% number (it was 20% in 2007, too), and the 360 fell 7% while the Wii rose 7%. Big movers for the publisher were Prince of Persia and Far Cry 2 , and we're not about to say that Haze really helped Ubisoft's numbers in any way, even though it was exclusive to the PS3. For now, it's just good to know that publishers can indeed do well with the PS3; this console war has only just begun and the PS3 is charging hard.

Anyway, we'll wait to hear more information on Ubisoft's upcoming titles and for our part, I Am Alive and Assassin's Creed 2 top our list.

I am really surprise that wii had 18% even thought it had neither Prince of Persia or Far Cry 2.Hopefully Se will stop ignoring PS3 owners and will get back to business.As for Assassin's Creed 2, I am sure it will be a GOTY nominee.

P.S I would like to know when we say GOTY who exactly crowns and picks the game.Is it Ign or something like that?

I'm pretty sure it's the VGA's on spike. Although every site chooses their own GOTY as well.

As far as I know every publication, TV show, awards show, etc has their own GOTY.

I'm interested in I Am Alive. I'm renting AC2. That 1st one was a waste of my $$$. And I would buy Splinter Cell but wait Ubisoft only putting it on the XBox360.

i dont like splinter cell always thought it was nothing compared to mgs but far cry was a good game bit disapointing in terms of story

I still love Vegas2. This is good news cause it should make them focus more on the system they used to just port over games for. Hopefully this gets us more effort and quality.

If were making more money then give us spliter cell. @ King James I thought I would be comparing SC to MGS too, but I find it's a totally different experience.
