UK Chart: Black Ops 2 holds top spot for fifth week

Hitman Absolution jumps four places to No.2

Call of Duty: Black Ops 2 retained the top spot on the UK all formats chart during the week ended December 15.


Black Ops 2 has now held the No.1 position for five consecutive weeks, equalling Lego Batman 2 in terms of the length of time spent at the top of the chart in 2012.

Hitman Absolution climbed four places to No.2 thanks to a price promotion, ahead of FIFA 13, Just Dance 4 and Far Cry 3.

The top ten featured the same games from last week in a quiet period for new releases.
