The Skyrim's the Limit

12/Dec/2011

The run-up to Christmas means there are deals aplenty to be had at retail, none more so than Bethesda’s ‘Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim’ which climbs from No5 to claim No1 for the first time, thanks to an average price reduction of around £13 compared to last week (+145%).


Skyrim debuted 5 weeks ago at No2 in the same week as ‘Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 3’, which explains why it never made No1 at launch. Activision Blizzard’s aforementioned ‘Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 3’ (-7%) drops to No2 after 4 straight weeks at the top and Ubisoft rise one place to No3 with ‘Just Dance 3’ (+67%) – the PS3 version is new this week, but the Wii version continues to account for a massive 89% of all sales on this title. EA drop 2 places to No4 with ‘FIFA 12’ (+24%) as do Ubisoft with ‘Assassin’s Creed: Revelations’, now No5 (-5%). EA’s ‘Battlefield 3’ climbs 3 places to No6 (+30%) and Nintendo claim a third straight week at No7 with ‘Professor Layton and the Spectre’s Call’ (+5%).

THQ drop 2 places to No8 with ‘Saints Row: The Third’ (-2%) and Sony’s ‘Uncharted 3: Drake’s Deception’ climbs back in to the Top 10 at No9 after an absence of 3 weeks (+81%), thanks to some price promotional activity. Nintendo’s ‘Mario Kart 7’ completes the Top 10 (-1%), holding off the charge of Sega’s ‘Mario & Sonic London 2012 Olympic Games’ which remains at No11 (+16%).
