Activision #2 publisher April-June

  NPD Funworld announced today that Activision is the #2 publisher for console and handheld software for the April-June 2002 quarter. Although THQ took the #2 spot for the sole month of June, Activision ranks second through all three months. Sales increased 95% over last year and the company hopes to continue the trend for the next part of the year.

   "During the April through June quarter, Activision continued to significantly outperform the overall software market," stated Ron Doornink, President of Activision, Inc. "As reported by NPD, our U.S. dollar sales for the period increased 95% while the overall market grew 23%. Our results were very impressive considering that we did not launch any new titles in June, as compared to last year when we released Tony Hawk's Pro Skater for the Game Boy Advance simultaneously with the hand-held platform's debut. We fully expect our momentum to continue with the upcoming releases of Mat Hoffman's Pro BMX 2 , Kelly Slater's Pro Surfer , Street Hoops , XXX and Medieval: Total War."

   Spider-Man was the #1 video game for the April-June period and has shipped more than 1.5 million units in North America since its release on April 16, 2002. The game has been a constant top-five selling title on all three next-generation consoles.
