    Is this store sales only, or is PSN store and other digital download services (Xbox store & Steam) included?

    Don’t forget that Skylanders will sell shed loads in the run up to Christmas, as a kids game, and has vast associated revenue streams from the figures which are in-game characters, and come in packs that cost an additional bundle…

    So a single game sale of Skylanders is a completely separate proposition in terms of profits to a sale of FIFA 13…
