3rd Dec 2012 | 09:22
Call of Duty: Black Ops 2 held off competition from new entry Far Cry 3 to retain the top spot on the UK all formats chart during the week ended December 1.
It's the third consecutive week at the top for Activision's shooter, which saw sales decline 35 per cent week-on-week.
Meanwhile, Far Cry 3 became the ninth biggest launch of 2012, just behind Hitman Absolution, which this week placed fourth behind FIFA 13.
A number of multiformat titles saw a boost thanks to the release of Wii U editions, but the highest new entries exclusive to Nintendo's console were Nintendo Land at No.11, New Super Mario Bros. U at No.14 and ZombiU at No.17.
In total there were five Wii U SKU's of titles within the top ten and ten Wii U versions of titles within the top 40.
