The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim has taken the top spot in the UK charts from Modern Warfare 3, ensuring there won’t be a repeat of the 10+ straight weeks at the summit of the list that Modern Warfare 2 ruled over between end of 2009 and end of 2010.

The Bethesda RPG got heavily discounted last week, which maybe a result for the chart win this morning, seeing a rise in sales as much as 145% from last week

MW3 drops to second, while Just Dance 3 is third, seeing a 47% jump on sales.

Uncharted 3 renters the top ten in nineth, having been 16th last week.
