Black Ops, FIFA Hold Off Cataclysm On UK Charts

Call of Duty: Black Ops and FIFA 11 retained their top positions on Chart-Track's UK sales charts this week, holding off a strong third place performance from newly released World of Warcraft: Cataclysm.
Activision's Call of Duty: Black Ops and EA's FIFA 11 retained their top positions on Chart-Track's UK sales charts this week, holding off a third place performance from newly released World of Warcraft: Cataclysm. Cataclysm did top the individual platforms chart for the week ending December 11, however, finishing just ahead of Sony's Gran Turismo 5 on that chart. The racing title also dropped one place to 5th on the all platforms chart for the week. Cataclysm's release also pushed down Ubisoft's Assassin's Creed: Brotherhood which fell from 3rd to 4th on the all platforms chart this week, and Just Dance 2, which fell from 5th to 6th. Last week's 6th place position holder, Ubisoft's Michael Jackson: The Experience fell just outside the top 10 to 11th place on the all platform charts this week, while EA's Need for Speed: Hot Pursuit maintained its previous 7th place position. A trio of Nintendo releases rounded out the top ten, with Donkey Kong Country Returns rising from a 13th place position last week to take 8th, and Professor Layton and the Lost Future and Wii Fit Plus swapping their previous positions to finish in 9th and 10th, respectively. Below are Chart-Track's all-platforms sales charts, which include unit sales of all versions of a given title, and the individual platform charts, which treat individual SKUs separately.
