Battlefield 3 Tops UK Charts

Despite not actually being the all-conquering game EA were hyping it up to be – see our review here – DICE’s first person shooter behemoth Battlefield 3 has entered the UK charts at number one.

The game has already sold more in its first week than every other Battlefield did in the same period, put together.


Batman’s in at number two, with FIFA holding strong in 3.

4. Football Manager 2012 (Sega)
5. Just Dance 3 (Ubisoft)
6. Forza Motorsport 4 (Microsoft)
7. The Sims 3: Pets (EA)
8. Zumba Fitness (505 Games)
9. Skylanders: Spyro’s Adventure (Activision)
10. Rage (Bethesda)
11. PES 2012 (Konami)
12. LEGO Pirates of the Caribbean (Disney)
13. Mario Kart Wii (Nintendo)
14. Gears of War 3 (Microsoft)
15. F1 2011 (Codemasters)

17. Deus Ex: Human Revolution (Square Enix)

We’ll have the multiplayer portion of our review up later today.



  1. As soon as MW3 hits, bye bye BF3, I hope it drops in price to £15 by the holidays.

    • Can’t see it happening for a while tbh. Bad Company 2 took quite a while to drop to around £25 let alone sub-£20

      • my copy of bc2 cost me £30 in December last year so it’s going to be very unlikely that it’ll ever drop to £15 until battlefield 4 is out. bc2 was still getting in the top 20 right up to the release of bf3 and never dropped below £20 until a few weeks ago.

    • While that is likely, for once, there is a lot of games that pose a risk to COD. I personally think Skyrim and UC3 will beat cod for a few weeks. :) I doubt BF3 will be £15 by christmas as BF seems to be selling well and will probably do so for a while thus the price not going down to £15. :)

  2. Would love to say I’ve played it this weekend, but despite the game arriving on Thursday, on the occaisions I’ve tried to play, the Servers have been down on each occaision.

    My brother has played it and he states categorically, it is not a Battlefield game. Bad Company 2.5 COD wannabee but not a real Battlefield title. He says Battlefield 2 Modern Combat is a superior game.

  3. I am embarrassed to say I don’t own any of the games in the top 20.
    I will be getting BF3 soon though.

    • I only have four – Two at the top (Battlefield & Batman) & two towards the bottom (Deus Ex & Driver)!

      Although, maybe i should buy zumba…

  4. Shit Sells.

    I still stand by that motto this generation.

  5. UC3 and MW3 in the next week and a bit. Be intresting to see the top 3 then :)

  6. Was thinking the samething.Sad eiy.Uncharted 3 maybe.
