PS3 software attach rate hits 1.65

Just as it revealed that Resistance: Fall of Man and MotorStorm had swept into the top two spots in the all formats listings this week, ChartTrack also confirmed that overall, PS3 games were sold at a software-to-hardware ratio of 1.65.

Considering the price of the console, this represents a significant success for platform holder Sony, although its predecessor PS2 boasted an opening weekend attach rate ratio of 1.67.

The high volume of software sales meant that the new Sony format put in an impressive showing in its debut week at European retail. Six new PS3 games entered the top ten, with 13 in total across the all formats top 40. Five of the 13 were also PS3 exclusives.
