batman came out swinging.

The Meerkat2278d ago

1.77% of 360 owners bought Batman
2.54% of PS3 owners bought Batman


news4geeks2278d ago

wait a minute; if there are 33m 360s and 21m ps3s in the americas, that means just less than 2% of 360 owners bought batman and just less than 3% of ps3 owners bought it.

don't know what meerkat is on about...

Ddouble2278d ago

How exactly did you do your calculations.

Anyway the sales on both consoles are almost equal despite the 360 having a 12 Million lead in console sales in NA.

I did not expect that for a popular game. Does the PS3 version have extra content?

ABizzel12277d ago

My opinion on the matter is that

1) The previous game Arkham Asylum had the Joker challenge exclusive to the PS3, and I'm one of those people who if I start a franchise on one console I'll finish it on that one, so that could be a reason.

2) The Action-Adventure genre feels PlayStation. That's the genre I think about when I think of what makes Sony better than the others, and it's my favorite genre. Action-Adventure games aren't the go to genre for the 360.

Im upset that rage sold 300k. That game was really bad.

Aussiegamer2277d ago

It was even worse on pc using a ati gpu, Rage was about the only thing the game made me do.

newleaf2278d ago

First week sales for Ratchet & Clank are really sad.

aquamala2277d ago

GrandTheftZamboni2277d ago
