Call of Duty: Black Ops 2 holds on at the top of the All Formats All Prices UK video game chart for a fourth consecutive week, - only the fourth game in 2012 to achieve this, after FIFA 12, FIFA 13 and LEGO Batman 2.

Far Cry 3 also holds on at No.2 in its second week, thanks to an impressive drop of only eight per cent. FIFA 13 is up 18 per cent at No.3, Just Dance 4 climbs to No.4 thanks to retailer promotions and Assassin's Creed 3 is at No.5 with a 10 per cent sales increase.

Hitman: Absolution slides to No.6 with a 3 per cent dip in sales, followed by Halo 4 which climbs a place to No.7 thanks to retailer price promotions.

The heavily discounted WWE 13 is also back into the Top 10 at No.10, while Sonic & SEGA's All-Star Racing Transformed continues to climb the chart to No.16 thanks to the PS Vita launch.

Nintendo's Paper Mario Sticker Star is new at No.40.

VideoGamer.com Analysis

Wii U software now only claims two places in the Top 40, with Nintendo Land at No.26 and New Super Mario Bros. U at No.36. Ubisoft's ZombiU exits the Top 40 after only one week in the chart. Disney Epic Mickey 2 is a new entry at No.9 in the Wii U chart.

With nothing new coming to stores between now and Christmas the top places will be a fight between Black Ops 2 and whatever titles happen to be on sale in any particular week. GAME is discounting both Hitman: Absolution and Resident Evil 6 this week so expect both to jump up the chart this time next week.

If my 360 didn't die on me, I think I would be near prestige 8. I was gunning for it for a change. It was a tactic to help stop me buying games and play with the ones that I currently have and get the most out of them!

Alas, it wasn't to happen, so feck it. :)

It is a good game. Multi-player that is. I haven't gone all crazy on it like some people on my friend's list (one of them is prestige 8 or something fecking stupid) but it is taking up a lot of my spare time.

The Wii U software drops at this point is kind expected, not many people own a Wii U yet, after christmas software sales may pick up.

What is more depressing is the lack of sales for Paper Mario: Sticker Star. I've been looking forward to this all year, which is why it depresses me that this hasn't sold well at all. I couldn't get a copy on launch, but I will be getting one this week, probably Friday.
