Call Of Duty Black Ops 2 remains UK’s biggest seller

Far Cry 3 and Wii U Launch titles fail to crack top slot on UK games sales chart

Call Of Duty Black Ops 2 has seen off both Far Cry 3 and the Wii U’s launch titles to hold onto the top slot on the UK’s game sales chart

Anyone who thought that the public might be tiring Call Of Duty Black Ops 2 might want to cast an eye at this week’s games sales charts. Activision’s world conquering First Person Shooter (FPS) has remained the country’s biggest cross platform seller, fending off challenges from the critically lauded Far Cry 3 and all of the Wii U’s launch titles.

What’s interesting in how the chart shapes up, however, is the fact that none of the titles for Nintendo’s new platform have managed to crack the top 10. The highest Wii U entries in the sales chart were Nintendoland, which debuted at 11th place and New Super Mario Bros. U, which started off this week at 14th.

This could be down to the fact that the Wii U has only been out for a couple of days and some of the launch titles have been part of package bundles for the console units. Still, it does show that, for now, standalone titles for Nintendo’s new console aren’t shifting as quickly as some industry analysts expected.

Elsewhere in the chart, Hitman Absolution slips from its debut slot of second place, while FIFA 13 proves to be completely immovable at third.

The rest of the top 10 videgames chart shapes up as follows:

1. Call Of Duty Black Ops 2 (ranked 1st last week)
2. Far Cry 3 (new entry)
3. FIFA 13 (ranked 3rd last week)
4. Hitman Absolution (ranked 2nd last week)
5. Assassin’s Creed III (ranked 4th last week)
6. Just Dance 4 (ranked 7th last week)
7. LEGO Lord Of The Rings (ranked 6th last week)
8. Halo 4 (ranked 5th last week)
9. Skylanders Giants (ranked 8th last week)
10. Need For Speed: Most Wanted (ranked 10th last week)
