UK's best-selling games of 2011 revealed

All formats and single format charts inside

Industry trade body UKIE has sent over a list of the best-selling UK games of 2011, based on GfK Chart Track figures, and there's no prize for guessing which title came out on top.


Activision's Modern Warfare 3 was the No.1 game of the year, making it three years in a row that a Call of Duty title has topped the annual rankings, following similar successes enjoyed by Black Ops and Modern Warfare 2.

EA games FIFA 12 and Battlefield 3 took the next two spots on the all formats chart, ahead of 505 Games' Zumba Fitness and Bethesda's The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim.

Ubisoft's Just Dance 3 and Assassin's Creed: Revelations placed sixth and seventh respectively, while Take-Two's LA Noire, THQ's Saints Row: The Third and Warner's Batman: Arkham City rounded off the top ten.

GfK Chart-Track business group director Dorian Bloch said: "2011 finished strongly for the traditional console gaming markets thanks to the arrival of 3DS to re-invigorate the hand-held gaming arena and also the notable UK phenomenon of Xbox 360, which sold more software both in units and revenue than any year since its launch back in 2005.

"Most of the All Formats top ten best-sellers of 2011 were released in Q4 which meant that for the first time over half of the entire year's software revenue occurred in just the last quarter of the year".
