COD: MW3 tops Amazon's gaming sales chart for 2011

Whilst the latest addition to the COD franchise has claimed top honours in Amazon's gaming sales charts, Just Dance 3 is a shock entry in second

 

Leading online retailer Amazon has announced its highest selling games of 2011 with Activision's eagerly awaited first-person shooter Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 3 unsurprisingly topping the list.

Whilst the latest COD title stormed to the top spot in Amazon's sales charts there was a shock entry in second place with party themed Just Dance 3 beating competition from the likes of Skyrim, FIFA 12 and Battlefield 3 to take the silver medal.

Unable to hit the heights of its replacement but performing strongly throughout the year Just Dance 2 snuck into Amazon’s top 10 in terms of sales units landing in eighth position.

Best Games of 2011

Having lost its crown as the year's top entertainment release in terms of units sold to musician Adele, the COD franchise topped most year-end gaming records but was piped to the UK All Format Gaming Chart Christmas top spot by Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim.

Establishing revenge COD proved victorious in the Amazon 2011 gaming sales charts with Skyrim landing in third ahead of EA’s epic FPS release Battlefield 3 in fourth.

Whilst the top five was rounded out by comic book spin-off Batman: Arkham City the top ten was completed with Madden NFL 12 and Portal 2 in sports six and seven respectively and Gears of War 3 and FIFA 12 filled positions nine and ten.
