Far Cry 3 Dethrones Black Ops II On UK Sales Charts

We usually don't report on weekly sales charts, but this update is plenty significant. After all, it's not every day that Call of Duty: Black Ops II gets knocked off its lofty perch.

After six consecutive weeks of being at the top of the UK sales charts, the latest CoD iteration has fallen...to Ubisoft's critically acclaimed Far Cry 3.

This occurred in the very last week of 2012 so that's kinda cool. Interestingly enough, Black Ops II fell a notch further to #3 as FIFA 13 claimed the runner-up spot. Hitman: Absolution and Need for Speed: Most Wanted rounded out the top five, and it's always fun to see a LEGO game in the top 10; LEGO Lord of the Rings landed at #9. It's good solid family fun, and features loads of longevity.

Here's the UK's top 10 for the week ending December 29:

  • Far Cry 3
  • FIFA 13
  • Call of Duty Black Ops 2
  • Hitman: Absolution
  • Need for Speed: Most Wanted
  • Just Dance 4
  • Halo 4
  • Assassin's Creed 3
  • Lego The Lord of the Rings
  • Forza Horizon

Not hard to see why, look at the innovation from far cry 2 to 3, then cod 8 to 9...
Glad to see "The Game" finally being dethroned. Hopefully game devs see what is happening with the call of duty line and keep things unique, nothing worse then watching developer interviews and hear them talk about how they're trying to imitate cod aspects.

Lol, hey Forza Horizon is there! I got 10,468,295 text messages over Black friday and cyber Monday selling dirt cheap copies of that game.

Oh and, good for FC3.

I have to say after seeing some videos on youtube of Far Cry 3's gameplay, I'm honestly surprised. It looks far better than the previous installment, though I still notice some silly things that happen in the game. But either way, I think I'd have to choose it over BLOPS2 for sure!

nice to see a good game selling really well for a change!
i wish ubisoft would release a expansion pack for it, release a new island with a few new missions and maybe some new gear to unlock.
cant get enough of that game!
its a shame the side missions are so god dam boring!
go fetch this, go fetch that.
finally finished the last one last night, a crazy dude asks you to go find 3 plants for his "medicine".
3 times you come back with the ingredients, and 3 times its the wrong stuff.
seriously, when are developers going to understand fetch quests ARE NOT FUN!
