UK Sales: Black Ops 2 keeps lead over Far Cry 3
Ubisoft released Far Cry 3 last week but even while this is by far one of Ubisoft’s biggest IP’s, it isn’t big enough to top Activision’s top franchise. That’s right, Call of Duty: Black Ops 2 has remained in the lead qua sales in the UK and we don’t expect that to change anytime soon.
In third place we see FIFA 13 still going strong, while Hitman: Absolution drops from 2 to 4 and Assassin’s Creed 3 from 3 to 5. Still, that’s two games from Ubisoft in the Top5, and with Just Dance 4 ending up in sixth place, Ubi actually has half of the Top6 in their hands. Not bad!
Warner’s LEGO Lord of the Rings drops one place, from 6 to 7, and is followed by Microsoft’s Halo 4 which is going downhill from 5 to 8. Meanwhile, Skylanders Giants and Need for Speed: Most Wanted both drop one place and close off the Top10.

Worth noting: The Wii U was released and saw several games entering the Top20, but not one of them managed to sell enough to get into the Top10. Let’s hope for Nintendo’s sake that next week will see some better figures as otherwise the future of the Wii U doesn’t look all too bright.
