Black Ops II tops UK chart

Call Of Duty: Black Ops II is the new number one in the UK all-formats chart. The latest installment in Activision’s all-conquering shooter series enjoyed the biggest UK videogame launch of 2012, and the fourth biggest of all time, according to chart compiler UKIE.

It means last week’s number one, Halo 4, slips to second in the chart, with Assassin’s Creed III falling two places to number four with FIFA 13 holding onto third place.

The sole other new entry in the top 10 is The Sims 3: Seasons at number nine, but there are several debutants further down the chart, the highest of which is Vita stinker Call Of Duty: Black Ops Declassified at number 16. Wonderbook: Book Of Spells is at number 25, one place ahead of F1 Race Stars, while Sonic & Sega All-Stars Racing Transformed is just behind at number 27.
