UK Chart: No Suprise As Black Ops II Fires To The Top

Published November 20, 2012 by |
Call of Duty: Black Ops II

It’s that time of the year again. Another Call of Duty and yet another chart-topping hit.

A Tuesday release for Black Ops II gives it the best launch week of any game in 2012 and the fourth best of all time. As expected, the majority of copies sold for Xbox 360, with 60%, and 38% on PlayStation 3.

The big hit of last week, Halo 4 marks down second and FIFA 13 sticks at third with Assassin’s Creed 3 hopping over to fourth. Skylanders Giants climbs one spot to complete the top five.

Need for Speed Most Wanted drops two and Just Dance 4 gains two, as both meet at sixth and seventh respectively. Borderlands 2 holds ground at eighth from new comer The Sims 3: Seasons as it enters the chart at ninth. Football Manager 2013 sustains a five place hit to complete the top ten.

As for other releases this week, Call of Duty: Black Ops Declassified, the handheld counterpart of the chart-topper, lands at sixteenth as the second most successful PlayStation Vita launch of the year. Wonderbook on the PlayStation 3 manages twenty-fifth, F1 Race Stars finishes far from pole position at twenty-sixth and Sonic & All Stars Racing Transformed at twenty-seventh.
