Good news for the PC gamers among us .. ehm yeah .. all of us ;) EA CEO John Riccitiello stated during a quarterly earnings call that the PC is rapidly becoming the largest gaming platform in the world. The game publisher also unveiled sales from digital game distribution were up 60 percent to $80 million in the company's fiscal 2009.

"In terms of distribution, the way we look at a lot what's happening in the future is, we've got probably a billion PCs out there in the world," he continued. "Very rapidly the PC is becoming the largest gaming platform in the world, just not in a packaged-good product."

"As you look at what that means in terms of distribution of product, we think that's incredibly exciting because it's going to open the market to new demographics, new countries and new types of gameplay," he added.
