Modern Warfare 3’s been able to keep atop of the UK charts for a second straight week, despite a sales decrease and a strong challenge from new entry Assassin’s Creed: Revelations.

The Activision shooter saw an 87 percent week-on-week decrease in sales, but still held off Ezio’s final chapter from the summit.

Skyrim dropped one spot to third, while Saints Row: The Third debuted at fourth, having beaten Saints Row 2’s 2008 launch by 43%.

More new releases included Halo Anniversary at sixth, Skyward Sword in seventh and Super Mario 3D Land at ninth.

There is, however, no spot for Need for Speed: The Run in the top ten, just missing out in 11th.
