Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 3 is getting mighty comfortable at the top of the UK Chart, as it has now been number one for three weeks in a row. With the November rush of big games over, it looks like it could be there for quite some time to come.
Despite a few games launching this week, none of them came close to dethroning Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 3 from its UK Chart top spot. The closest new entries to that coveted number one position didn’t really come close, as WWE ’12 entered in sixth place, and Professor Layton: Spectre’s Call followed just behind it in seventh.
Rayman: Origins didn’t even manage to make the UK top 40 on the all-format chart, but did manage to finish 23rd on the Wii chart - a scant consolation prize. It’s a shame as the game is currently being widely praised by critics, and might have seen more commercial success had it not been released during one of the busiest periods of the year.
Lord of the Rings: War in the North also faltered on entry, as it only just scraped into the top 40, placing in 38th. There wasn’t much change elsewhere in the charts, although Zelda: Skyward Sword did drop from seventh to 19th – Nintendo’s latest adventure through Hyrule impressed James Pickard (although that’s probably a huge understatement), and may be the last big hurrah to come from the Nintendo Wii.
Here’s the full top 10:
- Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 3
- Assassin’s Creed: Revelations
- Saints Row: The Third
- The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim
- FIFA 12
- WWE ’12
- Professor Layton and the Spectre’s Call
- Just Dance 3
- Battlefield 3
- Super Mario Land 3D
