The Xbox 360 version of Final Fantasy XIII is on track to outsell the PS3 SKU by two-to-one – that’s the prediction of discount shopping portal MyVoucherCodes.co.uk.
The site comes to the conclusion based on the number of searches made on its server, with interest in the Xbox 360 title running at double the rate of its rival.
It also states that the sheer amount of enquiries about the game point to it being the most successful release of 2010 to date. In February alone over 250,000 searches were made for the Xbox 360 release and 120,000 for the PS3 disc.
The Final Fantasy series has always been a huge draw for Sony, since its debut on the PlayStation in the form of Final Fantasy VII,” MyVoucherCodes MD Mark Pearson stated.
For Microsoft to now be sharing and in fact beating the interest for the PS3 version must be worrying Sony chiefs, who must be wondering just how to steal the march back, if it is at all possible. Our Christmas sales data showed that Xbox 360s were outselling PS3s three-to-one in the holiday period, a fact which seems to be presenting itself here as consumers show more interest in the Xbox 360 title.”
