Black Ops 2 rules UK chart with 4th biggest launch of all time

Mon 19 Nov 2012 9:46am GMT / 4:46am EST / 1:46am PST

Vita's "Declassified" version manages 16th with Wonderbook in 25th

Black Ops 2 has taken the number on spot on the UK chart this week, despite failing to break the sales records established by its predecessor. Nonetheless, the game still represents the biggest game launch in the UK so far this year and the fourth biggest UK launch of all time. The release trails behind Black Ops 1, Modern Warfare 3 and Modern Warfare 2.

All this despite taking $500 million in 24 hours worldwide.

Halo 4 is pushed into second spot this week, followed by FIFA 13 and Assassin's Creed 3. The Vita gets a rare top 20 entry at 16 with Black Ops 2: Declassified and the JK Rowling inspired PS3 experiment Wonderbook debuts at 25.

I usually enjoy the CoD series but I have to say, this one just didn't do it for me. I got 10 GS for reaching rank 10 in MP then turned it off and went back to Halo 4.
