Call of Duty: MW3 Shoots Down FIFA and Battlefield 3 to Stay on Top of UK’s Best-Selling Games List

January 12, 2012, By Sanjeev

Yet another year, and it seems there no one as yet to challenge Call of Duty in war gaming? Nobody, in fact, in the UK’s interactive entertainment industry market last year, says the latest figures released by UKIE. The sales figures released by this the only trade body for the UK’s wider interactive entertainment industry, reveals that Modern Warfare 3 was the UK’s best selling game during the last year.

With these figures, MW games have set a hat-trick, by being on the top of the list for the consecutive third year. First it was Black Ops which topped the list in 2009 as the most sought game in the UK market, while Modern Warfare 2, the immediate successor of Warfare 3, snatched the crown in the 2010 listing.

The fight was not an easier one for Modern Warfare 3. FIFA 12 was close at heels as per the figures of market performance, but finished second at the listing, behind Modern Warfare 3.

FIFA 12 was the only non-war game genre which made it into the first three places, as Battlefield 3 – one of the most adrenalin pumping war games ever – became the third largest selling interactive game in UK for 2011.

The listing has something interesting this year, as non-combat games and dance games found getting to the top places in the list. To the surprise of the gamers and analysts, Zumba Fitness managed to get a fourth place in the listing, while just Dance 3, a dance game, became sixth in the first ten top popular games in the UK market in 2011.

Well, here goes the complete listing.
