Modern Warfare 3 Cover Art Revealed?

Surprise! Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 3 was the best-selling game of 2011 according to the NPD Analysis. What is interesting however is the fact that Just Dance 3 claimed the number two spot, followed by a bunch of pretty hardcore titles. Sometimes people just need to dance. I get it.

I know all you want is to see the top ten list from 2011 and since I'm nice I'll show it to you. Here's the annual 2011 top 10 games from the NPD Group. Remember that these numbers represent physical retail only  across all platforms, including PC.

1.) Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 3 (360, PS3, Wii, PC) Activision Blizzard
2.) Just Dance 3 (Wii, 360, PS3) Ubisoft
3.) Elder Scrolls 5: Skyrim (360, PS3, PC) Bethesda Softworks
4.) Battlefield 3 (360, PS3, PC) Electronic Arts
5.) Madden NFL 12 (360, PS3, Wii, PSP, PS2) Electronic Arts
6.) Call of Duty: Black Ops (360, PS3, Wii, NDS, PC) Activision Blizzard
7.) Batman: Arkham City (360, PS3, PC) Warner Bros. Interactive
8.) Gears of War 3 (360) Microsoft
9.) Just Dance 2 (Wii)  Ubisoft
10.) Assassin's Creed: Revelations (360, PS3, PC) Ubisoft

Just by looking at this list it's interesting to note that two franchises scored with two titles each, Call of Duty and Just Dance, of course. The NPD had an interesting point when discussing this fact, saying that these two franchises, "couldn’t be more different," and that they demonstrate the range of appealing content on consoles for the year.

"The Dance genre was the sixth largest of 2011, growing 66% versus 2010," said NPD Group Analyst Anita Frazier. "The Just Dance property from Ubisoft nabbed two spots in the top 10 title list for annual 2011, among new physical sales of content at retail in the U.S.”

“In a bright spot for content sales, sales of games for HD platforms were up 8% in dollars in December, and 9% for the total year. Correspondingly, the PS3 and the Xbox 360 enjoyed the highest tie ratios for the year in terms of software units sold divided by the platform install base through the end of 2011," said the NPD Group.

I can't really say that I'm shocked at anything on this list. Every game that made the top 10 was exceptional and their sales prices clearly show that. Was your favorite game of 2011 in the top 10? My personal favorite, Alice: Madness Returns didn't make the list and I'm perfectly okay with that.
