FFXIII conquers UK Charts, PS3 version outsells 360 release

Final Fantasy XIII has muscled its way to the top of the UK All Format Charts this past week, with the PlayStation 3 version of the critically acclaimed RPG outselling its 360 counterpart.

Sony’s black box accounted for 54 percent of overall sales for the Square Enix title, while the 360 nabbed 46 percent. One things for sure, punters can’t get enough of the venerable Japanese franchise, and we imagine Square must be patting themselves on the back right now.

Final Fantasy XIII released last Tuesday and has shipped five million copies worldwide. Our review of the game can be read here. In the meantime, check out the full Top Ten below.
