However there's a bit of a large gap between now and autumn, when the next wave of major releases from the giant hits. Blur is out May 28th.
"We benefited from the record-breaking launch of the Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 2 map pack, which was previously expected to launch in the June quarter," said Kotick, as the publisher upgraded their outlook thanks to the huge Modern Warfare 2 DLC sales.
"It is always helpful to begin a year with great momentum," he added. "However, we remain cautious about the economy and consumer spending and the fact that the majority of our games are not expected to launch until the fall." Racer Blur is out late May.
Call of Duty 7, the next Guitar Hero, DJ Hero, Spider-Man and James Bond titles are all scheduled for fall this year which leaves something of a vacuum. Oh the humanity. Bizarre Creation's Blur has a multiplayer beta running exclusively on Xbox Live.
