The majority of Crysis 3 copies were sold on Xbox 360, at 57 per cent, while Metal Gear Rising: Revengeance fans made their purchase for PS3, with 61 per cent opting for the Sony console.
GfK Chart-Track points out that while having a new number 1 and 2 is a first for this year, both games fell short of the launch numbers Aliens and Dead Space 3 recently enjoyed.
