UK Charts: Battlefield 3 dominates

To say that Battlefield 3 is off to a good start in the UK would be an understatement. Not only has the Modern Warfare 3 challenger claimed the top spot, it out-did the launch week sales of all the previous Battlefield titles combined. Considering there have been 17 BF games, that’s mighty impressive.

The DICE shooter has also become the 10th largest all-time week one seller by units, and 9th by revenue. Last week’s #1, Batman: Arkham City, has no choice but to settle for a runner-up’s position.

As for other newcomers, there’s Kinect Sports: Season Two which debuts at #18, and Dragon Ball Z: Ultimate Tenkaichi which takes #23.

Top 10 follows:

1. Battlefield 3
2. Batman: Arkham City
3. FIFA 12
4. Football Manager 2012
5. Just Dance 3
6. Forza Motorsport 4
7. The Sims 3: Pets
