Unsurprisingly Battlefield 3 and Batman: Arkham City were October's biggest selling games in North America.

It was a big month for multiplatform software, with Battlefield 3, Batman: Arkham City, NBA 2K12 and RAGE all appearing in the top five. Surprising, huh?

Sony touted a 5% increase in software sales for the year, and also announced that inFamous: Festival Of Blood had become the "fastest selling PS3 digital title ever launched on PSN". Well deserved too.

Hit the jump for the full software top-ten.
