Paris Release

Another explosive World to discover in Big Bang Mini!

PARIS: Nighttime over Parisian rooftops is where the Paris World places you. Slow down time for a few seconds to get a better shot at the enemies by slashing downward on the touch screen with the stylus. Look out for enemies who use shots that will chase you down. Missed shots will not create falling sparks while time is slowed down, so fire away. Hidden enemies will appear as dark shadows that can only be shot when time is stopped. World Upgrade: Time Stop: Pulling straight down in a straight line activates the Time Stop. You will encounter quite a bit of enemy fire, so it comes in useful in each level. Keep an eye on the charge meter, though.

* Third-quarter sales up 13% to €508 million.

* Update on the games release schedule.
* Full-year 2008-09 targets adjusted.
* Initial targets for 2009-10.

London, UK – January 22, 2009 – Today, Ubisoft reported its sales for the third fiscal quarter ended December 31, 2008.

Sales

Sales for the third quarter of 2008-09 came to €508 million, up 12.9%, or 17.0% at constant exchange rates, compared with the €450 million recorded for the same period of 2007-08. For the first nine months of fiscal 2008-09 sales totaled €852 million versus €711 million in the corresponding prior-year period, representing an increase of 19.8%, or 24.8% at constant exchange rates.

Third-quarter sales came in slightly higher than the guidance of approximately €500 million issued when Ubisoft released its sales figures for the second quarter of 2008-09. This performance was primarily attributable to:

* The diversity and quality of Ubisoft’s games line-up for the holiday period, with a targeted offering for each type of consumer.
* A solid showing from franchise titles launched during the quarter, particularly Far Cry® 2 and Rayman Raving Rabbids® TV Party which generated sell-in sales of 2.9 million and 1.5 million units respectively and offset the impact of a slower take-off for Prince of Persia® (2.2 million units).
* The creation of a new multi-million units selling franchise – Shaun White Snowboarding – which was the quarter’s number two sports game in the United States and recorded 2.3 million units sell-in worldwide.
* The ongoing success of the Group’s casual games, notably the very robust performance turned in by the Imagine® range fueled by the success of Imagine Teacher and Imagine Wedding Designer. For 2008, Ubisoft’s market share for Nintendo DSTM games is 13.5% in Europe and 12,0% in the United States.

Going to bump this page to the front for a bit

Well wasn’t that fun? Access to Nintendo Everything has been cut off for almost two days. The issue stemmed from a new motherboard/ installation of new ram. Without getting into all of the mumbo jumbo, let’s just say that Nintendo Everything went “kaboom.”

Though, one of our technical guys has been working his tail off to get us back online. So all the gratitude goes towards him!

I also wanted to mention that such a long period of downtime is a rare occurrence. We might go down for a short while in a few hours, but I’m not expecting anything catastrophic if all goes well. I apologize that the site was down for however long it was, but I’m glad to be back!

I obviously missed out on posting a ton of Nintendo news. I haven’t exactly decided what I’m going to post up yet, but bear with me. Starting today, I’ll just try to add anything I can to the site.

Now without further ado, I’ll get back to updating the site.

Locomotive Games, owned by THQ, had begun to work on Stuntman: Demolition for the Wii. The PS3/360 saw the release of Stuntman: Ignition, so the series would be able to continue and arrive on Nintendo’s system. The game would feature an ongoing story and characters. However, disappointing sales of Stuntman: Ignition caused THQ to cancel production on the game in addition to ending the franchise.
