Activision's latest Call of Duty retains the No.1 spot for the second week running...

Despite an 87% drop in sales over its launch figures last week, Activision's Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 3 has retained the No.1 spot in its second week on the UK charts as the series has done for the last four years in a row.

The big news this week, however, was an influx of new releases into the top 10 as the game industry belched out one last volley of Christmas launches before the release schedules go relatively quiet until next year.

Assassin's Creed: Revelations debuted at No.2, Saints Row: The Third came in at No.4, Halo: Combat Evolved Anniversary surfaced at No.6, and Nintendo enjoyed two new entries into the top 10 with The Legend of Zelda: Skyward Sword and Super Mario 3D Land at No.7 and No.9 respectively.

This all means sizeable demotions for some of last week's top 10 titles, with Battlefield 3 and Just Dance 3 both dropping five places to No.8 and No.10 respectively. The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim and FIFA 12 were the most resilient titles, with the former slipping one spot to No.3 and FIFA 12 also dropping one position to No.5.

A number of other notable new entries failed to make the top 10, with EA's Need For Speed: The Run just missing out at No.11, LEGO Harry Potter: Years 5-7 slotting in at No.13, and SEGA's Mario & Sonic London 2012 Olympic Games launching at No.20 (that last title may enjoy a resurgence in sales as the Olympic Games move into full swing next year though).

Despite some positive feedback from a small handful of reviews, Kinect: Disneyland Adventures only just managed to make it into the top 40 at No.39 on its launch week.

  1. Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 3
  2. Assassin's Creed: Revelations
  3. The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim
  4. Saints Row: The Third
  5. FIFA 12
  6. Halo: Combat Evolved Anniversary
  7. The Legend of Zelda: Skyward Sword
  8. Battlefield 3
  9. Super Mario 3D Land
  10. Just Dance 3

1 simple fact a lot of you will disagree on but know its the truth, if these game's were purely and simply exclusivly only on PC they would not be as bad as they are right now. consoles restrict content, restrict MP modes texture res ect basicly if you really wanted to see these games evolve you should stop playing on games consoles and play on gaming PC's, its console gamers who are stopping these games from there evolutional cycle. pc's recieve upgrades every day and evolve every year while console slow this process down considerably and this gen has to end now, by keeping this gen as it is you wont see any noticable change in gaming franchise's and COD is a prime example of this. BattleField 3 on the PC using current gen graphics cards among other current and upto date components makes the games look and feel leauges better than the console's, basicly while the PC is in the premier legue both the 360 and ps3 and in a regional conferance miles away from last devision let alone the prem (if you understand english football you'll kinda grasp what im getting at) basicly the consoles are past their sell by date and now there just old and crusty, for games like COD and BF to pregress and evolve we need the next gen consoles now not in 2 or 3 years time, in fact for all games to evolve we need the next gen of consoles. the PC already has the next gen but is constantly being held back i just with not only console gamer accept this true fact but also sony and microsoft too, nintendo are/have done somthing about it and its about time sony and microsoft did too. yours the antagonised PC gamer.

The graphics are ugly and the sound is terrible.
