UK Chart: Black Ops takes the fast lane beating GT5 to number 1

For the third time, Activision’s latest Call of Duty has taken the top spot in the UK charts.

After a slight wobble last week, Black Ops has once again risen to the top of the charts, dropping Sony's Gran Turismo 5 into fourth place. FIFA 2011 climbed to second position, shunting Assassin's Creed: Brotherhood into third.

Despite the apparent dominance of multiplatform titles, the Wii has had a good week. Overall, Wii software units have outsold all other formats, with Ubisoft's Just Dance 2 and Michael Jackson: The Experience the chief contributors, coming in at numbers five and six, respectively. Nintendo’s Wii Party came in at number eight while Wii Fit Plus climbed four places to take ninth position.

Neither Donkey Kong Country Returns nor Disney's Epic Mickey managed to break into the top 10, though. Donkey Kong Country premiered at number 13 while Epic Mickey didn't mange to improve on its launch week performance. The Warren Spector title--which is facing mixed reviews--stayed at number 11 in the Wii charts and was frozen out of the all-formats top 40.
