Speaking following the publication of the company's third-quarter financial results, Ubisoft CEO Yves Guillemot has revealed that the success of Shaun White Snowboarding, which released in November 2008, will drive further investment in the sports market.

Yesterday Ubisoft announced that Shaun White Snowboarding was the quarter's number two sports game in the US and recorded 2.3 million unit sales worldwide.

"It's really an achievement for us and it's helping us to consider that it's possible to take some share of that business," said Guillemot (reported by GamesIndustry.biz).

"And we will soon announce that we will make a little bit of a merger and acquisition on that front. It's a small one but it will show you that we want to invest more in that direction," Guillemot added.

Going have to agree with Karlius on that one, as the Wii fit board provided to be the major selling point for the game. You accumlate on how Wiis there is out there now and do the figure it did best on the Wii than compared to 360 and the PS3.

I'll tell you how it sold 2.3 million copies mate. The Wii Balance board. I guarantee sales of this gme were highest on Wii. I also blame this on the lack of A Grade titles available this year for the Wii.
