NewsActivision and Infinity Ward's Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 2 topped unit sales rankings in the UK for the third week in a row, despite slowing sales of the title, Chart-Track said Monday. Unit sales of the game dropped 32 percent during the week ended November 28, but it was still enough for Modern Warfare 2 to hang onto the top spot on the all-platforms chart, the tracking firm said. In Modern Warfare 2's opening day in the UK, the title reportedly sold 1.23 million units in the region. First-week revenues hit £67.4 million ($111.8 million) in the UK. Modern Warfare 2, released November 10, generated $550 million in its first week worldwide, pushing Call of Duty franchise sales over $3 billion, Activision recently said. The top three games for the most recent week carried over from the prior week. Following Modern Warfare 2 once again are the recently released games Assassin's Creed 2 from Ubisoft and New Super Mario Bros. Wii from Nintendo. The only game to drop out of the top 10 from last week was Warner Bros. Interactive's Lego Batman: The Videogame, developed by Traveller's Tales. F1 2009 from Sumo Digital and Codemasters rose from the number 11 spot last week to number 10 to bump Lego Batman. UK All-Platforms Top 10 1. Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 2 (Activision) 2.
