Two weeks later, the PS3 is still the best selling video game product on Amazon (which is updated hourly), beating out both the Wii and the XBox 360 Elite, which are ranked 11th and 15th respectively. Funny thing is, the 360 had a price drop as well, within the last week, and its sales are nowhere near what the PS3 is getting (and it’s the only hardware in the top 10). Hopefully, this means the tides are truly turning and the PS3 really comes into fruition and starts taking its rightful place on top.
For those interested, here are the current Top 10 items on the list:
- PlayStation 3 120GB
- Wii Sports Resort
- Wii MotionPlus
- Halo 3: ODST (360)
- Batman: Arkham Asylum (PS3)
- Professor Layton and the Diabolical Box (DS)
- PlayStation 3 DualShock 3 Wireless Controller
- Batman: Arkham Asylum (360)
- Tales of Vesperia (360)
- Wii Remote Controller
It’s always nice to see a multiplatform game do better on the PS3 as well! Can’t wait to see NPD numbers for September! Also of note, Best Buys and Targets are running out of PS3 slim systems, and a lot of them are even sold out, so it’s looking like the price drop and system redesign is really attracting attention, and people are seeing the PS3 as the better bargain now, since it’s the same price as an Elite system, but has a lot more built-in features (such as blu-ray and Wifi). Only thing I’d like them to do would be to include the component cables like the Elite system rather than the basic composite.
