UKIE Week 51 2012 UK Video Game Charts

 
It appears all we want for Christmas is COD, as Activision scoop the festive No1 with ‘Call of Duty: Black Ops II’ (+2%). In taking top spot it becomes the first title in 2012 to hold the No1 crown for a stunning six consecutive weeks. It also ensures that with the exception of ‘The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim’, which claimed the title in 2011 either an Activision or EA title has been top at Christmas for the last decade. Big retailer promotions weren’t enough to see Ubisoft’s ‘Far Cry 3’ (+86%) make it to the top but it climbs from No5 to No2. Square Enix’s ‘Hitman Absolution’ (+1%) rounds off the Top 3 this Christmas ahead of EA’s ‘FIFA 13’ (+15%) which drops to No4. Ubisoft ensure they’re well represented in the Top 10 with ‘Just Dance 4’ (+7%) holding the No5 spot while ‘Assassin’s Creed III’ (+7%) slips to No7 spot. In between the pair EA make it two titles in the Top 10 with ‘Need for Speed Most Wanted’ (+27%) climbing two places to No6. It means Microsoft’s ‘Halo 4’ (+7%) slips down a place to No8. The last two spots are unchanged with ‘Lego The Lord of the Rings’ (-8%) and ‘WWE ‘13’ (-25%) staying at No9 and No10 respectively for the third week running.
