Call of Duty: Black Ops 2 holds on for a second week at the top of the All Formats All Prices UK video game chart, despite an 81 per cent drop off in sales.

Despite the expected sales slump, Black Ops 2's second week managed 15 per cent more units than Modern Warfare 3 was able to shift in its second week – a positive sign for the longevity of the blockbuster shooter.

Hitman: Absolution must settle for second place, but outsold the previous best Hitman launch – Blood Money in 2006 – by almost three to one. 49 per cent of sales were on Xbox 360 whilst 42 per cent were on PS3.

FIFA 13 is up two per cent and holds at No.3, whilst Assassin's Creed 3 is absolutely static in sales and sticks at No.4. Halo 4 slips to No.5, with LEGO The Lord of the Rings new at No.6. Just Dance 4 is at No.7 and Skylanders Giants also holds firm at No.8.

Dishonored returns to the fold at No.10 thanks to strong retailer promotions, as does THQ's Udraw Studio which is up 406 per cent and charts at No.13.

With so many new releases there was always going to be some major disappointments, and this week there are three: Disney Epic Mickey 2 is at No.34, Family Guy: Back to the Multiverse takes No.35 and PlayStation All-Stars Battle Royale is new at No.38.

VideoGamer.com Analysis

Despite mixed reviews Hitman: Absolution appears to have performed pretty well for Square Enix, although it's not known exactly how many units the game has sold.

Worryingly for Sony it has recorded another flop in the UK with PlayStation All-Stars, which looks set to follow LittleBigPlanet Karting out of the chart next week. Likewise Disney Epic Mickey 2 will require large oversees sales if the series is to continue.

Look out for Far Cry 3 sniffing around at the top of the chart next week, although its arrival on the same day at the Wii U may hinder its chances at claiming the top spot. New Super Mario Bros. U and ZombiU are our picks for the highest charting Wii U titles, whilst Black Ops 2, Assassin's Creed 3 and FIFA 13 may also get a boots from early Wii U adopters.

@dav2612 - oh, the context of the comment wasn't for *us* personally, but for the target audience indeed (including a younger nephew, to provide immediate context, but she saw how it would be so limited, which falls in line with reviews that I - not she - have read).

On another note - that's a shame. :p

I imagine you and your partner are not the target audience for Wonderbook. Someone in my house likes the look of it and I don't believe she will get bored of it quickly... not that she is getting it.

PSASBR, Epic Monkey is rental inm my eyes anyway. Does look alright mind but have other games I would rather get through.

@clockpunk
Yeah they have splashed a lot of money on advertising. Seen PSASBR and Wonderbook a few times on TV and on websites.
I think they should push PSN+ more if anything, they really do need Beyond and The Last of Us to come out now rather than next year.

My partner saw the Wonderbook Spells advert on TV yesterday and just said: 'that'll get old by Boxing Day'.

A concise summary of my thoughts on the matter.

I can perhaps see PSASBR (phew) selling a few copies over time... but nowhere near the amount Sony seem to have thought it would. I mean, had I the facvilities to hand, I would probably check it out... but unlike Smash Brothers, I wouldn't pay full price for it.

If you're talking about PSASBR, then I guess a lot of people would rather wait for the next super smash bros or capcom fighting game. Not many people are interested in something that seems to be a halfway house, jack of all trades and master of none.

On the other hand, if you mean epic mickey I don't know who they think will buy this game (forgetting the fact it was released in November of all months). It doesn't seem to be aimed at either kids or adults to me.

So yeah, I can't see anyone wanting these games, or at least not right now.

Oh... 35th for PlayStation all stars has got to hurt, I get the feeling that superbot is going to be mighty disappointed about this. Epic Mickey 2 poor performance is a shame, but I can't really see who is the audience for this is.
