According to MCV, UK retailer sold 2,978,493 games last week, for total sales of £73.9 million. As noted earlier this week, Skyrim nabbed the top spot. Although the figures represent a decrease on the same period of 2010, it’s an increase over the previous week, and the second-best week of 2011 so far; the best week occurred in November, when the launch of both The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim and Call of Duty: Modenr Warfare 3 led a pack of 3,289,421 games sold at £120.8 million. This present week is 2011’s last chance to top that effort.
