Battlefield 3 edges past Modern Warfare 3 to claim second, with Call of Duty close behind in third.

Ubisoft boogie title Just Dance 3 was fourth, while Skyrim, the UK's Christmas number one, was fifth.

Chart stalwart Zumba Fitness shot up from 19th place to sixth.

Need for Speed: The Run, Saint's Row: The Third, Rage and Assassin's Creed: Revelations rounded out the rest of the top ten.
