Call Of Duty: Black Ops Named 2010's Top Selling UK Title

Activision's Call of Duty: Black Ops has been named the top selling UK title of 2010, outselling all other titles despite its end-of-year release, according to data from UKIE and Chart-Track.
Activision's Call of Duty: Black Ops has been named the top selling UK title of 2010, outselling all other titles despite its end-of-year release, reports the UK Interactive Entertainment Association and Chart-Track. Even just after its November release, the multiplatform first person shooter set sales records by grossing £113.8 million ($177.3 million) in one week and marking the all-time biggest grossing week for video games in the UK. Electronic Arts' ever-popular FIFA 11 found success across multiple platforms as well, falling just behind Black Ops on the 2010 all formats chart, the Xbox 360 chart, and the PlayStation 3 chart. Ubisoft also saw a handful of games on the all formats top 10, including Just Dance, Just Dance 2, and Assassin's Creed: Brotherhood, and Nintendo's Wii Fit Plus and Wii Sports Resort also found their way into the list. On the individual platforms charts, Black Ops led the Xbox 360 and PS3 charts, Just Dance landed the top spot for the Wii, and Football Manager 2011 led the chart for the PC. On the handheld front, Professor Layton and the Lost Future topped the Nintendo DS chart, and FIFA 11 claimed the top spot for PSP.
