You should put the following in your OP:

‘Call of Duty: Black Ops II’ remains at No1 for a 5th consecutive week (+14%), equalling ‘Lego Batman 2’ in terms of number of weeks at the top of this chart in 2012.

Square-Enix’s ‘Hitman Absolution’ climbs 4 places to No2 (+91%) thanks to price promotion and EA’s ‘FIFA 13’ remains at No3 for a 6th consecutive week (+8%).

Ubisoft’s ‘Just Dance 4’ remains at No4, helped by a price-promoted Wii version (+10%) whilst Ubisoft’s ‘Far Cry 3’ drops 3 places to No5 (-25%). The trio of Ubisoft big-hitters are back-to-back this week, with ‘Assassin’s Creed III’ down 1 place to No6 (-6%). The rest of the Top 10 remains the same, with Microsoft’s ‘Halo 4’ at No7 (+2%), EA’s ‘Need for Speed: Most Wanted’ at No8 (+24%), Warner’s ‘Lego The Lord of the Rings’ at No9 (+21%) and THQ’s ‘WWE ‘13’ at No10 (+12%)

Pretty diverse top 10 that. V Good.

Looks like another big week for Halo. Showing good staying power.

AllStar has vanished for good. Book of Spells falls. No WiiU games?


OMG, Wii U bombing hard!!!

I'm on Twitter @DanneSandin!

Furthermore, I think VGChartz should add a "Like"-button.

Only Wii U game at 39 is concerning...

Not quite sure what you expected. The Vita has about 5x the install base of the Wii U, and COD Vita has been heavily advertised. The test comes in the new year, for both systems.

just a little extra info from mcvuk

"Activisionís shooter claims its fifth successive Gfk Chart-Track All Formats Top 40 No.1 this week, and actually manages to grow sales 14 per cent week-on-week.

Retail discounting helps Hitman Absolution climb from sixth to second place, with sales jumping 91 per cent."

COD BO Vita is THE most advertised game in the UK at the moment.  It is having a massive push on TV.  The ad is a constant in ad breaks.  This game has had a bigger ad campaign than Halo4 and COD BO for 360/PS3 here.  No Joke.
