UK Top 40: Modern Warfare 3 sales increase

Mario Kart 7 skids into 8th.

Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 3 continues to dominate the UK video games chart, its sales rising 2 per cent to secure a fourth week on top.

3DS game Mario Kart 7 was this week's sole newcomer, and finished eighth. That's higher than fellow 3DS exclusive Super Mario 3D Land managed three weeks ago, but it is much quieter now.

FIFA 12 sales improved to take the football game to second place. However, EA's game was still 55,000 sales short of rampant chart leader Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 3.

Assassin's Creed: Revelations was third, behind an ever-rising Just Dance 3 in fourth. Skyrim shuffled down to fifth, but Saints Row: The Third fell further, to sixth.

Nintendo puzzler Professor Layton and the Spectre's Call was seventh, ahead of Mario Kart 7 in eighth, Battlefield 3 in ninth and Super Mario 3D Land in 10th.

Outside the top 10, Mario & Sonic London 2012 Olympic Games rose to 11th - its third rise in three weeks.

Abba: You Can Dance and Zumba Fitness 2 both managed to enter the top 40 in this, their second week of release. They finished 30th and 34th, respectively.

Meanwhile, both Rayman: Origins and Lord of the Rings: War in North dropped out of the top 40, after disappointing starts for both last week.

The full chart lies below.
