 Battlefield 3  Holds  Uncharted 3  Back In UK Charts

Battlefield 3 Holds Uncharted 3 Back In UK Charts

November 7, 2011 | By Mike Rose

EA's Battlefield 3 managed to hold back Naughty Dog's Uncharted 3 in the UK software sales charts last week, keeping the number one spot for the second week in a row despite a 54 percent drop in sales.

For the week ended November 5, and according to data from tracking firm Chart-Track, the new entry from Naughty Dog and Sony had to settle for second place, just ahead of FIFA 12.

Battlefield 3 is a multiplatform title, generating unit sales from Xbox 360, PlayStation 3 and PC versions. Uncharted 3 is a PlayStation 3 exclusive, giving it a smaller potential customer base.

Uncharted 3 wasn't the only new entry into the chart, as Sega's Sonic Generations managed to scrape in at number ten.

All the usual suspects were also hanging around, from Just Dance 3 to Zumba Fitness, which simply refuses to leave the top ten.

Warner Bros' Batman: Arkham City stayed up high at number four, while the likes of Football Manager 2012, Forza Motorsport 4 and Skylanders: Spyro's Adventure all hovered around the same areas of the charts.

Below are Chart-Track's all-platforms sales charts, which include unit sales of all versions of a given title, and the individual platform charts, which treat individual SKUs separately.

UK Individual Platforms Top 10

While Uncharted 3 didn't manage to dethrone Battlefield 3 in the main charts, it took pole position in Chart-Track's individual formats top 10 chart.

Battlefield 3 did, however, take up the next two positions, with the Xbox 360 version once again outselling the PS3 and PC versions.
