Call of Duty: Black Ops retains UK gaming chart top spot

Black Ops takes fourth title in five weeks

Call of Duty: Black Ops has retained its UK gaming chart crown as the phenomenally popular first person shooter takes the sales top spot for the fourth time in its five weeks since launch.

Dislodged for just one week by the arrival of the long overdue Gran Turismo 5, Black Ops has become a regular fixture atop the UKIE All Format Top 40 this week followed by the ever-present FIFA 11 in second and the week’s highest new entry World of Warcraft: Cataclysm rounding out the podium positions.

With Gran Turismo 5’s opening fortnight global sales having topped 5.5 million copies, the most realistic racing sim to date has seen its single platform constraints drop it to fifth in the UK charts, two places ahead of rival Need for Speed: Hot Pursuit.

The PC exclusive World of Warcraft: Cataclysm marks the first occasion that an expansion for the hugely successful role-playing game has been launched in solid state and digital download forms simultaneously.

Focus now shifts to which gaming release will top next week’s UKIE charts and ultimately take the title of Christmas Number One 2010. Which game do you think will be this year’s festive chart topper? Share your thoughts and predictions with us via the T3 Twitter and Facebook feeds
