MW3 sales up 2% this week as #1 spot retained
FIFA 12 shifts up to second past Assassin's Creed: Revelations
Modern Warfare 3 has seen its first weekly increase in sales since its release, with units up two per cent over last week. That increase means that Activision's shooter keeps hold of the UK's top software sales spot, despite renewed competition from EA's FIFA 12 in second.
The sales gap between the two games remains significant, however, with Chart-Track indicating a 55,000 difference in weekly sales for the two titles.
Assasin's Creed: Revelations slips below FIFA to third, with Just Dance 3 jumping up the chart from eighth to fourth. Professor Layton's latest, The Spectre's Call, holds onto seventh, ahead of the newly release Mario Kart 7 in eighth. That game is the only new entry in this week's top 40.
