UKIE Week 47 2012 UK Video Game Charts

 
‘Call of Duty: Black Ops II’ holds off Square’s new entry ‘Hitman Absolution’ despite an 81% drop in sales. It’s a successful second week for Activision Blizzard with sales of their previous Call of Duty title ‘Modern Warfare 3’ having dropped by 87% in its second week.  In fact, 2nd week sales are up by 15% compared to those posted by MW3 last year.  ‘Hitman Absolution’ settles for a respectable No2, outselling the next best ‘Hitman’ launch (Hitman Blood Money in W21 2006) by almost 3 times.  There is no change at No3 and No4 as sales of both ‘FIFA 13’ (+2%) and ‘Assassin’s Creed III’ (-0%) remain reasonably static.  ‘Halo 4’ (-26%) drops to No5, ahead of newcomer ‘Lego The Lord of the Rings’ from Warners which debuts at No6.  Family titles ‘Just Dance 4’ (+39%) and ‘Skylanders Giants’ (+12%) are still proving popular, with Ubisoft’s title a non-mover at No7 and Skylanders slipping to No8 despite a 12% jump in sales.  ‘Need for Speed Most Wanted’ (-8%) holds on to a Top 10 position at No9, while after two weeks out of the Top 10 ‘Dishonored’ (+79%) returns at No10 thanks to a retail-wide price promotion.  A major retailer sales event propels ‘Udraw Studio’ (+406%) back into the chart at No13.  There are new entries further down the chart with ‘Disney Epic Mickey 2: The Power of Two’ new at No34, ‘Family Guy: Back to the Multiverse’ at No35 and ‘Playstation All-Stars Battle Royale’ at No38.
