Call Of Duty: Modern Warfare 3 was the best-selling game of last year at retail in the UK.
The 2011 chart released by UKIE contains few surprises, with Activision's shooter beating FIFA 12 to top spot, ahead ofBattlefield 3 and Zumba Fitness. This is the third successive year that a Call Of Duty game has outsold the competition in the UK.
Modern Warfare 3 was also the best-selling game on Xbox 360 and PlayStation 3. Zumba Fitness topped the Wii chart, while Professor Layton And The Spectre's Call was the top-selling DS game andSuper Mario 3D Land topped the 3DS chart. Football Manager 2012 was the year's best-selling PC game at retail, ahead of predecessor Football Manager 2011.
New UKIE CEO Jo Twist said: "In a year when overall consumer spending was down, the launch of so many high-quality titles showed that there was still strength in the UK's boxed-product games market.
"However, digital is where much future growth lies and it is therefore vital that we understand the size of this market. UKIE's digital charts, launching this year, will be a step towards measuring digital revenues."
