Modern Warfare 3 takes an arrow to the knee


A lot of people must have thought the heavy high street discounts for The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim were too good to miss – it’s back at #1 in the UK chart this week, pushing Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 3 down to #2.

It’s a shame that GAME/GameStation’s £22.49 deal was only for one week. At that price it would have stood a very good chance of being the Christmas number one. It may even do so regardless, thanks to word of its greatness still spreading.

This leaves Just Dance 3, FIFA 12 and Assassin’s Creed: Revelations to round off the top 5. At #6 there’s Battlefield 3 and Professor Layton and the Spectre’s Call remains at #7 for the second week running while Uncharted 3: Drake’s Deception is in at #9 up from #16. Mario Kart 7 stays in the top 10 at #10.

People must be feeling more active than normal this time of year – both Zumba Fitness and Zumba Fitness 2 are in the top 40, as are both Kinect Sports and Kinect Sports: Season Two.

And what’s this at #39? It’s Rayman Origins, which finally makes a top 40 appearance. Better late than never.
