VGChartz's William D'Angelo: "Today we take a look at the top 10 best-selling games for the PlayStation 3. Up to this point we have looked at the original PlayStation, the Nintendo 64, the PlayStation 2, the original Xbox, the GameCube, the Nintendo DS, the PSP, and the Nintendo Wii. This week it's the turn of Nintendo's most popular home console, the Xbox 360.

The PlayStation 3 is the sixth best-selling video game platform in history and the fourth best-selling home console in gaming history. It is also the third best-selling home console by Sony, behind the PlayStation and PlayStation 2, and has thus far sold 85.96 million units lifetime."

GTAV was a beast with more than a 20% attach rate.

Literally half of the list consists of CoD games. No wonder Activision keeps pumping them out every year. Funnily I don't own any of those games on the list.

9 out of the 10 are actually 3rd party, but COD is dominant.

6 FPS in total

wow...if GT was not on there I would have sworn, that was an X360 list. This list kind of kills the notion that people buy consoles for exclusives.

nix2022d ago

Flex, sadly yes. I would also want to see more exclusives up on that list. I personally buy for exclusives. 80% of my games are exclusives.

I don't have any CODs or BFs. I got GTAIV, got burnt. Skipped GTAV.

If they write an article on Top 10 Best-Selling PlayStation 2 Games they would mostly be exclusives since Sony had all the best exclusives in the PS2 era. Sony lost a lot of their exclusives after the PS3 release.

rocketleague2022d ago

Always weird to think that the most popular first party game by Sony is Gran Turismo. Always seems so forgotten

Imalwaysright2022d ago

By the sales it had it doesn't seem like people forget about it. Also, I think that is common knowledge that GT is the most important Sony franchise.

_-EDMIX-_2022d ago

Its one of the most important Sony franchises.

rocketleague2022d ago

I know it's near common knowledge but it just seems to not generate the hype that series like Uncharted does considering the sales

Imalwaysright2022d ago (Edited 2022d ago )


Nah It's the most important Sony franchise.




GT is without any doubt Sony's flagship franchise and has been since their 1st console.

_-EDMIX-_2022d ago

They can have more then one important franchise....

The PS doesn't just die with no GT as GT is not even half of PS's sales, its not even near that.

What...15 million or so per PS console.....out of systems that do 80 to 100 million? lol.

Its important to PS, yes....but many series are, combined they all help PS sales. Series like Uncharted are just as if you combine the sales of the series thus far.

I'm not doubting their importance, merely that Sony has more then 1 important franchise.

Imalwaysright2022d ago

Did I say that Sony only had one important franchise? All I'm saying is that GT is the most important Sony franchise.

"What...15 million or so per PS console.....out of systems that do 80 to 100 million? lol."

And Sony's other franchises managed to do less! How many "lol" does this statement deserve? lol... lol..lo..l... ?

I'm a bit sad to see only one exclusive on that list.

Start supporting first party titles and exclusives, darn it. Give incentive to make great sequels, not the annual releases that comprise like 70% of this list.

zodiac9092022d ago

Lists like these should be about best selling EXCLUSIVES for the console, Everyone knows/Doesn't care to see COD or GTA pop up several times.

_-EDMIX-_2022d ago

Those sales show otherwise. You can right now list the best selling if you want to, this article is not about that and we can have more then one list bud lol.

Also note....this is why I state 3rd party titles sell consoles, many don't want ot realize this fact, but MOST buy consoles for those titles.

Look at Wii U, no Fallout, no GTA, no Mass Effect 4, no COD, no Battlfront etc.

The systems that failed over the years, have been the systems with no 3rd party support.

Many might want to say systems sell due to exclusives....

What real numbers do we have to really support that claim? I've looked it up numerous times and I've yet to find a correlation from exclusives and sales. MOST times low sales might be due to lack of 3rd party, lack of a better performing system in regard to those 3rd parties, lack of world wide appeal, lack of diversity etc.

I've yet to find exclusives as the reason a system might have failed, as crazy as that sounds, only a few actually really buy a system solely for exclusives, those numbers show MOST buy them for 3rd parties.

zodiac9092022d ago

They could just make a separate list and I dunno maybe call it "Best selling Multiplatform Games"?? When they say "Best selling on a particular console", seeing what exclusives sold the best is way more interesting than seeing the same Multiplatform pop up on 100 lists. EVERYONE knows what the best selling series are anyway...We all know 3rd parties sell more consoles than Exclusives..

_-EDMIX-_2022d ago

"We all know 3rd parties sell more consoles than Exclusives" not all of us do as this site many times thinks exclusives sell platforms.

I disagree too, they are all interesting list, its cool to see what platforms games did the best on. Exclusive or otherwise.
