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
