Call Of Duty: Black Ops II is number one in the UK all-formats software chart for a second week in succession, seeing off the challenge of Hitman: Absolution despite sales falling by 81 per cent week on week.
Absolution has to settle for a debut in second spot, despite outselling its 2006 predecessor Blood Money by almost three copies to one. FIFA 13 stands firm at number three for a third successive week, with Assassin’s Creed III a non-mover at number four.
After Hitman, the next highest new entry is Lego Lord Of The Rings at number six – look out for a review of that on the site later this week. We’re also taking a look at Family Guy: Back To The Multiverse, which debuts at number 35.
It’s been a dismal launch weekend for PlayStation All-Stars Battle Royale, however. Sony’s answer to Smash Bros, developed by US studio Superbot Entertainment, barely sneaks into the top 40, at number 38.
