"We're riding the top of the sales charts for Rayman and Splinter Cell," says Alain Corre, managing director for Europe, the Asia-Pacific region and South America, "and it's thanks to the innovative spirit and know-how of our in-house development teams, our comprehensive distribution network and dynamic marketing activities. There is no doubt about it: both of these Ubi Soft blockbusters not only meet but surpass the ever-increasing standards of today's players. This is the first time we've simultaneously led the market around the globe on all formats and it feels great. It's increasingly clear that our strategy is right on target, taking us both upward and outward."
