The Bethesda published RPG toppled Just Dance 3, to finish up in first. That pushed Call Of Duty: Modern Warfare 3 into third. The excellent FIFA 12 finished up in fourth, while Saints Row: The Third climbed above Battlefield 3 into fifth.

Skyrim marks the first time a non EA or Activision published title has topped the Christmas charts since 2002. Back then the winner was Grand Theft Auto: Vice City on PS2.

It's always nice to see a different publisher at the top of the charts, so congrats Bethesda. Now go and fix the PlayStation 3 version so we can enjoy it as it was intended.
