Cataclysm third in UK charts as Black Ops stays on top

Surprise WoW placement does not reflect digital sales

Call of Duty: Black Ops remains number one in the UK all-formats software chart, with Blizzard's latest World of Warcraft expansion entering at third.

However, Chart-track's figures only represent retail sales - digital purchases for the MMO's third add-on, Cataclysm, are likely to be very high.

EA's FIFA 11 continues its long stay in the top ten, accruing another week in second, while Ubisoft's latest Assassin's Creed slips to fourth.

The full top ten for the week ending December 11 is as follows:
