Batman Prefers the PlayStation 3

August 28, 2009 Written by Dan Massi


A lot of gamers are aware that in the case of sales over a multiplatform title, Microsoft’s Xbox 360 generally comes up on top. It appears Batman rejects the status quo.

On Thursday, two days after release of Batman: Arkham Asylum, the PS3 version’s head held high on Amazon, coming in at a sales rank of 4 in the site’s Video Game section. The Xbox 360 version was still close behind, having a rank of 5, just one below the PS3 version.

The same was apparent at Best Buy, as the PS3 version Batman: Arkham Asylum was listed as the best-selling version. And at Wal-Mart, where the PS3 version also came up on top, as the best-selling version. Both retailers had Xbox 360 come in a close second.
