UK Chart: DmC knocked to fourth as Black Ops II takes lead
Call of Duty takes its first UK No. 1 in 2013.
Call of Duty: Black Ops II has taken first place in the UK charts this week, with Capcom and Ninja Theory's DmC: Devil May Cry slipping to fourth after being unable to keep the top spot for two weeks running.
It's the first time Black Ops II has topped the chart in 2013. FIFA 13--which took the charts for the first two weeks of January--is in second, and Ubisoft's island romp Far Cry 3 is third.
The usual suspects fill out the top 10: Assassin's Creed III, Need for Speed: Most Wanted, Just Dance 4, Football Manager 2013, The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim, and Hitman: Absolution.
The only new release last week was The Sims 3: '70s, '80s, '90s Stuff, which entered the charts in 36th. This Friday sees the much-loved Studio Ghibli JRPG Ni No Kuni landing on shop shelves, but will it be able to make the charts next week?
