Electronic Arts has revealed it's fiscal results for Q3 of last year, which was arguably one of the best times that gamers have ever seen thanks to a load of first class game releases, and has oddly revealed that it makes the most money not from next-gen systems, but from the PlayStation 2.

Check below for the full breakdown of revenue earned per platform.

PlayStation 2: $301 million
Xbox 360: $196 million
PC: $148 million
Nintendo Wii: $139 million
Nintendo DS: $122 million
PlayStation 3: $102 million
PlayStation Portable: $74 million
Mobile: $38 million
Xbox: $3 million
Game Boy Advance: $2 million
GameCube: $1 million

It should be noted that the list above also includes co-partnered deals, according to Kotaku. That means that the revenue includes that earned from games like Crysis, Rock Band and The Orange Box - which earned a total of $320 million on their own.

One thing we would like to point out though - EA is also claiming that it only made four new, in-house PC games last quarter, yet it managed to earn $148 million from them. Take that, Mr. Fourteen Percent!
