Heavy discounts have pushed Skyrim to the top of the UK sales charts.

Firstly, we never expected Naughty Dog to be behind Sony's new PlayStation 3 exclusive, The Last Of Us. But it is. And now this: Skyrim has toppled Modern Warfare 3 at the top of the UK sales charts. We thought Call Of Duty was a lock at the top for the rest of the year.

The Bethesda RPG got heavily discounted around the country last week though, so that sort of explains the game's rise. Just Dance 3 fell into third, despite seeing an increase in sales on the back of its PlayStation 3 release last week.

Pleasingly, Naughty Dog's Uncharted 3: Drake's Deception re-entered the charts at ninth, on the back of some great discounts and bundles.
