In a week full of new releases, Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 3 managed to hold on to the top spot in the UK software sales charts, despite an 87 percent drop in sales week-over-week.

For the week ended November 19, and according to data from tracking firm Chart-Track, the charts saw five new titles, but Modern Warfare 3 still took first place in its second week on sale.

Ubisoft's Assassin's Creed: Revelations was left to take second place, although it sold 4 percent more units in its first week than the previous in the series, Assassin's Creed: Brotherhood.

Saints Row: The Third from THQ took slot number four, with Bethesda's The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim refusing to drop down the charts, and digging in at number three.

Halo: Combat Evolved Anniversary, the remake of the original Halo, jumped into the charts at number six, just above the latest release in the Zelda franchise, The Legend of Zelda: Skyward Sword, which only managed to reach number seven.

Nintendo had two huge titles launching this week, with Mario joining Zelda as Super Mario 3D Land entered the charts at a lowly number nine.

This week marks the first time Zumba Fitness has left the top ten in a very long while. The game can be found down at number 15.

Below are Chart-Track's all-platforms sales charts, which include unit sales of all versions of a given title, and the individual platform charts, which treat individual SKUs separately.
