European Software Chart suggests PS3 has the better of Xbox 360 so far this year
It’s a year that could yet see the PS3’s strongest ever market performance, and a GfK European Top 30 Chart for the first 15 weeks of 2010 paint a very good picture for Sony’s machine.
The numbers come from a Nintendo Investor presentation and are based on GfK International data.
As would be expected, the real victor is Nintendo with a staggering 13 entries, including four of the top five selling games across the fragmented European region.
However, more surprising is the prominence of PS3 titles in the higher echelons of the listings. The Top Ten finishes of Final Fantasy XIII (fourth), Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 2 (sixth), God of War 3 (eighth) and Heavy Rain (tenth) are the only titles to punctuate Nintendo’s chart whitewash.
You have to go down to number 12 to find the first Xbox 360 title – EA’s Battlefield: Bad Company 2.
