Are the FFXIII figures just for the PS3 or do they include multi-platform sales?
of course ffxiii will be the best selling game, it’s been multiplatform.
Why is mw2 not on tha list it is still selling big amounts of the game?
These are sales for ps3 only. Japan is most likely the cause for the high FFXIII sales.
@Niraj Shah That’s true. GoWIII has only sold about 43K copies in Japan last week, got outsold by Fist of the North Star!
@ff fan The sales figures are for PS3 only.
