Newsbrief: Call of Duty: Black Ops II held on to the top of the UK sales charts for a second week despite an 81 percent drop in sales, keeping the newly released Hitman: Absolution at bay.
Absolution was still the best launch for the Hitman game in the UK ever, outselling the launch week of Hitman: Blood Money by nearly three times as much, according to Chart-Track.
Lego The Lord of the Rings was the other new entry to make it into the top 10 last week, entering at number six. The charts weren't so kind to other new titles, however, as Disney Epic Mickey 2: The Power of Two only managed number 34, with Family Guy: Back to the Multiverse launching just below that at number 35.
Sony's PlayStation All-Stars Battle Royale fared even worse, only just managing to enter the top 40 at number 38, across both the PlayStation 3 and PS Vita platforms.
