Top 20: More than half the chart claimed by PS3

The all-format software sales chart has been dominated by PS3 games after the machine's launch on Friday. Despite the chart only taking two days of PS3 sales into account for the week, Sony's exclusive titles Resistance: Fall of Man and MotorStorm claimed the top two positions respectively, with the non-exclusive Virtua Tennis 3 and Call of Duty 3 taking spots 4 and 5. Only the multiformat Brian Lara International Cricket 2007 could spoil an all-PS3 top five, debuting at 3.

12 of the top 20 best-selling games are available on PS3, making it a very successful software launch for the new machine. Interestingly, gaming heavyweights Ridge Racer 7 and Virtua Fighter 5 could only manage 11 and 14 respectively, beaten by several thousand sales by the somewhat dull Formula One: Championship Edition, which entered at 7. Well, there's no accounting for taste.

It's bound to sell loads of games on release in relation to two consoles which are already out, It's common sense really.

Uh no it isn't. Find this news for the ps3 launch in the US or Japan...nope you won't find it.

VF5 is not such a big system seller. ;) Ok, I was just howling on old statements I've done in the past about VF5. Still it's not that big of a game. Right?

That's good news for Sony and probably makes it's software selling comparisons to the 360 a little more realistic now that is available to everyone and not just Japan and the US.
Lets see if this keeps up. I assume we'll be seeing Mass Effect in the top ten this summer being that its been awhile since the 360 has dropped a must have. That's not a slight to MS because they have several very interesting prospects on the horizon. Every console has a dry period.
