Call of Duty is back with Activision Blizzard and developer Treyarch exploding at the top of our All Formats Chart with ‘Call of Duty: Black Ops II’.
With a Tuesday launch it becomes the biggest launch of 2012 and the 4th biggest of all time. It’s Xbox 360 taking the lion’s share with 60% of sales going to Microsoft’s console as opposed to 38% on Playstation 3. Last week’s No1 ‘Halo 4’ falls to No2 ahead of ‘Fifa 13’ which sits at No3. ‘Assassin’s Creed III drops down to No4 while another Activision Blizzard title ‘Skylanders Giants’ climbs to No5.
A strong boost in sales sees Ubisoft climb from No9 to No7 with ‘Just Dance 4’. The Sims are also back with ‘The Sims 3: Seasons’ making its debut at No9 ahead of ‘Football Manager 2013’ which slips down from No5 to No10. Outside the Top 10 and not to be forgotten is Black Op’s hand held cousin ‘Call of Duty: Black Ops Declassified’, which debuts at No16 and becomes the second biggest Vita launch of the year. Further down the chart Sony’s ‘Wonderbook’ appears at No25. In the battle of the cartoon racer Codemasters' ‘F1 Race Stars’ just takes the flag at No26 ahead of Sega’s ‘Sonic & All Stars Racing Transformed’ at No27.
