7 out of 15 Famitsu favourites are PS3 games

The run of positive publicity Sony is enjoying this week just got one item longer. Readers of influential Japanese mag Famitsu have listed seven PlayStation 3 games – both multiplatform and exclusive – among their top fifteen upcoming releases, as reported by German site PS3 Life. Those champagne corks must be popping like mad down at PlayStation towers.

Astonishingly, that puts the PS3 ahead of both the Nintendo DS and Wii, which garnered three and two mentions respectively. The Xbox 360 was left to fight it out in last place with the PlayStation 2 and PlayStation Portable.

Titles of note include both Final Fantasy XIII and its brooding cousin Final Fantasy Versus XIII, White Knight Chronicles and the utterly unknown and rather disturbing-sounding (to us, at least) Christmas Kiss.

Here’s the full list:

1. Final Fantasy XIII (PS3, Square Enix)
2. Dragon Quest IX (NDS, Square Enix)
3. Biohazard 5 (PS3, Capcom)
4. Monster Hunter 3 (Wii, Capcom)
5. Dragon Quest IX (NDS, Square Enix)
6. Chrono Trigger (NDS, Square Enix)
7. The Last Remnant (PS3, Square Enix )
8. Animal Forest [Animal Crossing] (Wii, Nintendo)
9. Final Fantasy Versus XIII (PS3, Square Enix)
10. Ryuga Gotoku 3 [Yakuza 3] (PS3, Sega)
11. White Knight Chronicles (PS3, Sony)
12. Star Ocean: The Last Hope (360, Square Enix)
13. Dissidia: Final Fantasy (PSP, Square Enix)
14. Street Fighter IV (PS3, Capcom)
15. Christmas Kiss (PS2, Enterbrain)
