The record breaking Activision shooter beat off strong new competition from Ubisoft's Assassin's Creed: Revelations and THQ's Saints Row: The Third — both of which debuted in second and fourth respectively.

The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim dropped to third, while FIFA 12 finished up in fifth. New releases from Microsoft and Nintendo padded out the top-ten, but there was still room for Battlefield 3 in eighth.

Unfortunately for EA, Need For Speed: The Run didn't quite sprint fast enough, finishing up in eleventh position.
