Take 2 takes $1.3m

Sales up, but profits down

Source - Business Wire

Take 2 has just unveiled its results for the three months to July 31st, showing a decline in profits from $3.4m the previous year to $1.3m this year. The good news though is that net sales were up from $71.5m to $84.5m, helped by the arrival of Max Payne at the end of July. Max topped the PC charts in both Europe and America on release, making it Take 2's fastest selling PC game to date, and both PlayStation 2 and Xbox versions are expected to be ready for the all-important Christmas shopping frenzy. Other games likely to give Take 2 a boost in the second half of the year include Smuggler's Run 2 and Grand Theft Auto 3 on the PlayStation 2, while Duke Nukem Forever might finally put in an appearance on the PC. Don't laugh, it could happen.

Are our sales up? Do bears shit in the woods? Don't answer - it's one of those, waddya call 'em, rhetorical questions.
