FFXIII PS3, Heavy Rain, And PS3 Console Rule Amazon’s Top 5 Bestsellers List

While Final Fantasy XIII Xbox 360 seems to be the recipient of much advertising love from Square-Enix, gamers are still flocking towards the PS3 version of the game in droves. It’s not surprising at all, Final Fantasy titles are most recognizable on said console, but what will make Sony even happier is the fact hat Heavy Rain, a game many worried would not sell well, is at the No.1 spot.

Now amazon will never be able to give us an accurate view of what’s really taking place around the US, but it’s at least a good predictor. Just like Many other titles, including Mass Effect 2, if they’re performing well on Amazon, then it’s a good sign.

The PS3 console is also standing firm in the 4th spot and rising, hoping to make a comeback as the Xbox 360 outpaced it in the sales arena according to the latest NPD results, outselling Sony’s black behemoth comfortably.

Expect these numbers to change even while you read this piece, but it’s always great to have a glimpse of what’s happening on the sales side of things.

Wouldn’t you say?

    Actually, January NPD numbers showed 330,000 units for the 360 VS 270,000 for the PS3. That’s a difference of 60,000, hardly what you’d call “Comfortable”, especially since the 360 had Mass Effect 2 which, according to the legions of fanboys, was supposed to be “The best RPG in the history of everzzz!”.

    Compare that with Japanese sales for the month which were 120,000 in favour of the PS3, more than enough to “Comfortably” offset the minor 360 advantage in the US. Fact is, despite Mass Effect 2 causing fanboys to wet themselves with excitement, the PS3 dominated the 360 in worldwide sales for the month of January, so the NPD figures are kinda irrelevant.

    It’s good news that Heavy Rain is selling well, though and everybody knew the PS3 version of FF XIII would be the only choice for the real RPG fans.
