Batman toppled from his perch at the top of the charts by the blockbuster shooter from DICE.
Last week, Warner Bros. and Rocksteady's Batman: Arkham City claimed the no. 1 spot and became one of the biggest launches of 2011, but the bat has been dethroned by Battlefield 3 which takes over at the top of the UK charts.
Elsewhere, the majority of titles in the top 10 have simply each moved down a spot to accommodate Battlefield 3 squeezing in at the top, although Pro Evo 2012 has dropped out of the top 10 to number 11 and evergreen title Zumba Fitness has moved up a place to number 8. Skylanders: Spyro's Adventure has jumped from 11 to 9.
Last week's data is here. The full UK top 10 for the week ending October 29 looks like this:
1 - Battlefield 3
2 - Batman: Arkham City
3 - FIFA 12
4 - Football Manager 2012
5 - Just Dance 3
6 - Forza Motorsport 4
7 - The Sims 3: Pets
8 - Zumba Fitness
9 - Skylanders: Spyro's Adventure
10 - Rage
