Battlefield 3 sees off an offensive from the biggest PS3 exclusive of the year...

EA's Battlefield 3 has remained atop the UK charts for the second week running despite a 54% drop in sales from its launch figures last week, making it the first Battlefield game to retain the top spot. Its Previous iteration, Bad Company 2 could only hold onto No.1 it for one week back in March 2010.

This means that the highest new entry this week, Uncharted 3: Drake's Deception has been held off the coveted top spot. As with its predecessor from 2009, Uncharted 3 could only manage No.2 despite a 37% increase in launch sales over Uncharted 2 and managing the 11th biggest launch of any PS3 exclusive in UK chart history.

The only other new entry in the top 10 was Sonic Generations, which peered into the sharp end of the chart at No.10. Elsewhere there was a bit of moving and shaking from No.3 to No.9, but only among the usual suspects...

FIFA 12, Just Dance 3, Zumba Fitness, and Skylanders: Spyro's Adventure were all non-movers at No.3, No.5, No.8, and No.9 respectively. Batman: Arkham City and Football Manager 2012, meanwhile, suffered two-spot drops to No.4 and No.6, while Forza 4 moved down one place to No.7:

  1. Battlefield 3
  2. Uncharted 3: Drake's Deception
  3. FIFA 12
  4. Batman: Arkham City
  5. Just Dance 3
  6. Football Manager 2012
  7. Forza 4
  8. Zumba Fitness
  9. Skylanders: Spyro's Adventure
  10. Sonic Generations

Another point to make post 63 even if you have pre ordered it ( which i very much doubt ), they don't take the payment from your credit card until the game is released

Let's get one thing straight with Battlefield 3: EA has only acknowledged its existence briefly in a financial conference at this stage. There has been no official announcement containing a press release and assets from EA yet.

How post 63 managed to make a pre-order on the EA Store is beyond me. I certainly can't find the directory on the website now. Sounds like porkie pies to me.

usually a preorder doesnt require full payment but i doubt that EA is making a huge amount of intrest from just £15, other than that £15 for a new game is some what of a bargain, even if you have to wait for it.

I preordered 3 for PC at 14.95 from EA Store months ago. Hope they are loving the interest they are making on my money :-(

I'll be building a new gaming PC for Battlefield 3, and I hope its all DX 11, and uses the destruction 2 Frostbite engine.

To reiterate the posts below, we can't even be absolutely sure that the game is still in development, let alone when it's going to release. Clearly DICE has been working on a Battlefield 3 over the last few years though...
