Nvidia’s financial results for Q3 saw an increase in revenue of $1.1 billion compared to $843.9 million yoy and in profits with $178.3 million compared to $84.9 million yoy, thanks in part to increased interest in “highly anticipated blockbuster PC games.” The firm noted growth in desktop GPU sales, naming Battlefield 3 as a major factor, along with Modern Warfare 3 and Star Wars: The Old Republic.
“We believe this surge of PC gaming demand will drive increased demand for NVIDIA’s GeForce products despite the soft consumer PC market,” said Nvidia’s Rob Csongor. “We expect a multiyear PC gaming cycle, as the PC becomes increasingly more powerful than 5 to 6-year-old gaming consoles.” Thanks, Gamasutra.

EA has announced that pre-orders for Battlefield 3 hit close to the 3 million mark when it went on sale, today in the US. It’s unknown at present whether these figures are worldwide or just for the US. EA will report its Q2 results this coming Thursday, and while the fiscal report won’t include sales figures for the shooter, the firm may provide a more solid figure for the pre-order sector. Just last week, the firm said pre-orders were at “around 2 million,” and back in early September, EA CFO Eric Brown said the figure stood at around 1.25 million. BF3 is out today in the US and hits the UK Friday.
