Well this is a bit of a surprise! Despite it almost seeming certain that Modern Warfare 3 would take the Christmas number one spot in the UK chart, Skyrim has prevailed. Close behind it is Just Dance 3, with MW3 coming in third.
Apparently this is the first Christmas is eight years where an EA / Activision game hasn’t been number one.
