Square’s taken a glass half-full approach to its Q2 financials, which is really quite admirable.
Even if it is a really small glass.

THQ’s Q1 financial results are in, and while the UFC Undisputed publisher’s far from eating canvas, we have to imagine it’ll have quite the shiner when it wakes up tomorrow morning.

Somewhere, off in an – in all likelihood fictional – alternate universe, Kevin Butler’s riding a golden jet ski powered by fuel made from ground-up diamonds.
Of course, he always did that. But now, Sony can actually afford it.

Recently, for a lot of videogame companies, we have to imagine that getting on the horn for a financial call has been akin to watching crowds gather at the gallows for your own hanging. Only problem is, execs actually survive financial calls, ensuring that they’ll have to shout “Abandon ship!” as their stocks plummet yet again a few months later. No sir, the videogame industry hasn’t been kind as of late.
Unless you’re EA, that is. If you want your financial calls cheery and full of phrases like “number one publisher” and “king of shooters,” look no further. It’s all after the break.

Say whatever you want about Activision Blizzard, but one thing’s for sure: gaming’s premier publishing powerhouse is never boring. Whether it’s Bobby Kotick tying the industry to a table and rambling on about his diabolical plans to suck the fun out of development or the recent Infinity Ward fiasco, there’s never a dull moment in the house that Modern Warfare added an extra wing onto.
Today’s Q1 2010 financial call was no different, and as a result, did not disappoint. See all the fireworks after the break.

After taking a $117 million hit from Eidos, Square Enix’s financials are looking a little worse for the wear. The two-headed Japanese giant posted a net loss of 1.67 billion yen for the quarter ending on June 30.
Sales were also down 1.2 percent when compared to the same period last year, coming in at 29.4 billion yen. In spite of that, though, the company’s games division performed quite well, with sales up 7.2 percent. Kingdom Hearts 358/2 Days and Final Fantasy XI (yes, XI) were listed as reasons for this upswing.
Other than that, though, Square Enix is basically doomed. We can’t, for the life of us, think of anything that might pull the company out of this slump. We guess they have that little DS game they released last month. Uh, Large Fictional Lizard Adventure, was it? But who even bought that?
Thanks, Industry Gamers.

Gamasutra has the full scoop on Atari’s first quarter earnings, and things are looking pretty good. Boosted by the strong sales of games like Chronicles of Riddick and Ghostbusters, revenues soared 30% up to €54.5 million ($77.78 million).
However, Atari isn’t popping the champagne and threatening to stop supporting the PS3 just yet. The future, unfortunately, may not be quite as bright.
“This performance in the first quarter is mainly due to a favorable game release schedule and should not be extrapolated for the remaining of the year,” Atari stated.

With BioShock 2, Red Dead Redemption, and Max Payne all banished to the far off temporal land of 2010, Take-Two isn’t expecting much in the way of profitability this year. The company stated as much during today’s conference call.
However, the publisher repeatedly noted that 2010 has become a promised land of sorts, with the above major games and many “unannounced titles” slated for release next year.
Analyst Jesse Divnich of EEDAR, especially, thinks there are good things in store for Take-Two. He gave Joystiq his two cents.
“The news of BioShock 2 being delayed into fiscal 2010 has drastically changed my view on the Take-Two. I originally anticipated that Take-Two would outperform the industry in fiscal 2010. Now, I expect them to dominate fiscal 2010.”
Roll with the punches, Take-Two. Never back down.
