Modern Warfare 3 Still on the Frontline


‘Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 3’ celebrates its first sales increase since it launched 4 weeks ago, holding on to No1 with a 2% jump in sales.

‘FIFA 12’ (+30%) shimmies past ‘Assassin’s Creed: Revelations’ (-2%) to become COD’s biggest competitor this week, up from No5 to No2 - however it is still over 55,000 sales behind Activision Blizzard’s blockbuster. Shoppers appear to already have an eye on Christmas with another strong festive performer ‘Just Dance 3’ (+54%) moving up from No8 to No4. Bethesda’s ‘The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim’ (-7%) falls one place to No5, while THQ’s ‘Saints Row: The Third’ (-24%) tumbles 3 places to No6. ‘Professor Layton and the Spectre’s Call’ (-9%) on DS is still Nintendo’s biggest selling title this week, holding on to No7 despite the launch of ‘Mario Kart 7’ on 3DS – having to settle for a slightly less lucky No8. EA’s ‘Battlefield 3’ (+16%) is a non-mover at No9, as is Nintendo’s ‘Super Mario 3D Land’ (+20%) at No10, meaning the Japanese publisher has the most titles in the Top 10 this week (with 3).

There are no Top 40 new entries this week apart from ‘Mario Kart 7’, however there are a couple of titles entering the chart in their second week of release – ‘Abba: You Can Dance’ (+252%) in at No30 and ‘Zumba Fitness 2’ (+97%) at No34.
