UK Software Chart: Hitman: Absolution beaten by Black Ops 2 during week of November 24th

Written by: / / No Comments

Call of Duty: Black Ops II holds onto first place in Chart Track’s UK Software Sales listing for the week ending 24 November. As a result Hitman: Absolution has to settle for a debut at number 2, but Square Enix should still be happy because it outsold 2006’s Hitman: Blood Money, which was the next best Hitman launch, by almost three times.

Black Ops II sales drop by 81% in its second week, but still best Activision Blizzard’s previous Call of Duty title, Modern Warfare 3, which dropped 87% in its second week. According to Chart Track, second week sales of Black Ops II are up by 15% when compared to those posted by Modern Warfare 3.

FIFA 13 (+2%) and Assassin’s Creed III (-0%) remain in third and fourth place, while Halo 4 drops three spots to finish fifth this week (-26%). LEGO Lord of the Rings debuts at number 6, while Just Dance 4 keeps up the pace at seventh with sales up 39% and Skylanders Giants drops to number 8 despite a 12% sales boost this week.

Need for Speed: Most Wanted drops from last week’s number 6 to finish ninth, sales down 8%, while Dishonored re-enters the Top 10 after two weeks, taking tenth place with sales up 79% thanks to a retail-wide price promotion.

It’s interesting to see Udraw Studio make a return to the chart, with a major retailer sales event helping it finish at number 13. Disney Epic Mickey 2: The Power of Two debuts at number 34, while Family Guy: Back to the Multiverse is new at number 35 and PlayStation All-Stars Battle Royale enters the chart at number 38.
