UK chart: COD blops Creed from top

Need for Speed in hot pursuit.

Call of Duty: Black Ops has denied Assassin's Creed: Brotherhood and Need for Speed: Hot Pursuit a top spot in the UK all-formats chart.

Activision's record-breaking game is top (54 per cent on Xbox 360, 40 per cent on PS3); Ubisoft's celebrated action game second (55 per cent on Xbox 360, 45 per cent on PS3); and EA's fantastic racing title third (48 per cent on Xbox 360, 47 per cent on PS3).

Call of Duty: Black Ops sales dipped 85 per cent from last week, but Treyarch's shooter still managed to sell 63,000 copies more than AC: Brotherhood. The latter has enjoyed the biggest UK launch of the Assassin's Creed series.

The rest of the top 10 is boring: FIFA 11 in fourth, Just Dance 2 fifth, Wii Party sixth and Wii Sports Resort seventh.

In eighth is Professor Layton and the Lost Future, ninth is Kinect Sports and last but not least is New Super Mario Bros. Wii.

Awful movie tie-in Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows - Part 1, entered 20th.

There's a common theme to the games dropping out of sight this week. Off the bottom of the top 40 list are Kinectimals, Kinect Joy Ride, Your Shape: Fitness Evolved, Sonic Free Riders and Sports Champions.
