Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 2 has beaten competition from FIFA and Grand Theft Auto to become Amazon’s best-selling video game of all time.
The retail giant confirmed the milestone as part of its 15th birthday festivities.
While exact sales figures were not divulged, Modern Warfare 2 also fended off fellow Activision juggernauts Call of Duty: Black Ops and Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 3 to claim pole position.
Impressively, GTA V managed fourth on the list despite barely being on sale for a month, while The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim also put in a solid performance.
Amazon.co.uk’s Video Games & Software Category Leader, Ketu Patel, commented: “Call of Duty, Grand Theft Auto and FIFA are three of the largest entertainment franchises in the world, so it’s no surprise to see them dominating the top ten best-selling games chart.
“The success of Skyrim suggests that there is a real appetite for the epic fantasy games, whilst Zumba Fitness’s appearance in tenth place shows just how big Nintendo Wii’s fanbase is in the UK.”
