Black Ops Tops UK Charts, DC Universe Premieres In 10th

After a single week down at third place, its lowest position since its launch, Treyarch's Call of Duty: Black Ops again topped Chart-Track's list of top-selling retail games in the UK for the week ending January 15.
After a single week down at third place, its lowest position since launch, Treyarch and Activision's Call of Duty: Black Ops again topped Chart-Track's list of best-selling retail games in the UK for the week ending January 15. The Black Ops move bumped last week's top-seller, EA's FIFA 11, down to the second position for the week and shifted Ubisoft's previously second-ranked Just Dance 2 down to third place for the week. Sony Online's DC Universe Online was the only new title to premiere on this week's top ten, pushing out The Sims 3, which fell from 9th to 11th place. Kinect Sports jumped from 10th to 5th this week, and was the only title from last week's top ten sellers to move more than two positions this week. The relative positional stability seems to suggest steady sales for top performers in the absence of much new, high-profile competition this week. 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. UK All-Platforms Top 10 1. Call of Duty: Black Ops (Activision) 2. FIFA 11 (Electronic Arts) 3. Just Dance 2 (Ubisoft) 4. Wii Fit Plus (Nintendo) 5. Kinect Sports (Microsoft) 6.

DC Universe Online (Sony Online Entertainment) UK Individual Platforms Top 10 Just Dance 2 tops the individual platforms charts once again this week, with the PS3 version of DC Universe Online premiering at the 8th position. Microsoft and Harmonix's Kinect-powered Dance Central jumps to 7th place this week after being outside the top 10 last week, while Art Academy drops from 8th to 13th. 1. Just Dance 2 (Ubisoft, Wii) 2. Wii Fit Plus (Nintendo, Wii) 3. Kinect Sports (Microsoft, Xbox 360) 4. Gran Turismo 5 (Sony Computer Entertainment, PS3) 5.
