FFXIII conquers UK Charts, PS3 version outsells 360 release

Final Fantasy XIII has muscled its way to the top of the UK All Format Charts this past week, with the PlayStation 3 version of the critically acclaimed RPG outselling its 360 counterpart.
Sony’s black box accounted for 54 percent of overall sales for the Square Enix title, while the 360 nabbed 46 percent. One things for sure, punters can’t get enough of the venerable Japanese franchise, and we imagine Square must be patting themselves on the back right now.

Final Fantasy XIII released last Tuesday and has shipped five million copies worldwide.

Top ten this past week:

1 – Final Fantasy XIII (Square Enix, Square Enix)
2 – Battlefield: Bad Company 2 (EA DICE, EA)
3 – Just Dance (Ubisoft, Ubisoft)
4 – Heavy Rain (Quantic Dream, SCE)
5 – Wii Fit Plus (Nintendo, Nintendo)
6 – Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 2 (Infinity Ward, Activision-Blizzard)
7 – Sonic & Sega All-Stars Racing (Sumo Digital, Sega)
8 – Aliens vs Predator (Rebellion, Sega)
9 – Wii Sports Resort (Nintendo, Nintendo)
10 – New Super Mario Bros. Wii (Nintendo, Nintendo)

    I was sick on Friday am, took off work and bought this on the way home.. started off slow and a little boring, but quickly peeked my interest and I’m greatly enjoying it now..

    I find it strange that as much as 46% of FFXIII were sold on XBOX360…. It has such average reviews !
    I was expecting something like at least 2:1 for the PS3

    it could just be 360 owners who bought it just to say “hey Sony, look what I’m playing on my 360″ lol

    The 360 still has the lead in the UK over the PS3. Multiplatform games usually favor microsoft’s system so an 8% advantage for the PS3 isn’t too bad.
