UK chart: Christmas number one is...

Nothing to do with the X-Factor.

The UK all-formats Christmas number one for 2010 is Call of Duty: Black Ops, the fastest-selling game the world has ever seen.

As in previous weeks, FIFA 11 dribbles close by in second, and is followed by Need for Speed: Hot Pursuit in third, Just Dance 2 in fourth and Assassin's Creed: Brotherhood in fifth.

Gran Turismo 5 keeps on chugging in sixth, Donkey Kong Country Returns beats its chest in seventh, Medal of Honor salutes in eighth and Wii Fit Plus puffs in ninth.

Rounding out the top 10 is DS game Professor Layton and The Lost Future.
