The UK video game charts are in. The lead-up to Xmas begins. There is no Need for Speed good enough to take its one-time traditional place as Xmas #1. In fact, Modern Warfare 3 is the Christmassy best-bet. However, in more interesting chart news... "Cultured" Skyrim has been seen off by "Yobbish" Saints Row: The Third.

According to Chart-Track, "Saint's Row: The Third, up from No4 to No3 (-40%) swaps places with Skyrim (-43%) even though both titles are down by similar amounts."

In terms of the rest of the pack:

"Assassin's Creed: Revelations clings to second place despite a 61% drop in sales...

"FIFA 11 (+22%) and Just Dance 3 (+22%) are the only Top 10 titles to increase sales this week with EA[/i]s Christmas football favourite a non-mover at No5 and Ubisoft's popular dancing sequel up 2 places to No8. The new releases are coming thick and fast, but nothing on the scale of last week's Assassin's Creed: Revelations with WWE 12 the highest new entry at No6 (22% up on THQ's 2011 title), one place ahead of another chart debutant - Nintendo's Professor Layton and the Spectre's Call new at No7."

What of MW3's biggest genre rival? Battlefield 3 sits at #10 with sales 4% down week-on-week.

Finally and yes, predictably, "Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 3 (-41%) keeps its grip on top spot for a 3rd consecutive week after launch, a feat predecessor Black Ops couldn't manage last year (denied by Gran Turismo 5).

Love Saints Row. Nice to see it not get lost in the shuffle with all the other big games out this month.
