Sony and Media Molecule's LittleBigPlanet 2 has entered the All Formats All Prices UK video game chart at No.1, but failed to outsell the week one total of the first game in the series.
According to GfK ChartTrack, 2008's LittleBigPlanet sold 95 more copies than the sequel managed last week.
Black Ops is kicked down to No.2, ahead of Just Dance 2 at No.3, FIFA 11 at No.4 and Assassin's Creed Brotherhood at No.5.
Mass Effect 2 re-enters the chart at No.7 thanks to the newly released PS3 version - combined sales up 462 per cent week-on-week.

LittleBigPlanet 2 secured the No.1 spot - the first game only managed fourth place - but sales were down, albeit marginally over the first game. It's worth noting that LBP launched on a Wednesday, giving it two extra days at retail over the sequel, but the sequel's failure to achieve better sales has to go down as a disappointment.
The loveable platformer's stay at the top is unlikely to extend into a second week, with EA's Dead Space 2 fully expected to dismember poor Sackboy and any other game which gets in its way.
