Hitman Absolution

When a game manages to stay #1 in the UK chart despite an 81 percent drop in sales, you know it’s sold a lot of copies. Call of Duty: Black Ops II has, emphatically, sold a lot of copies.

Hitman Absolution fails to take the top spot then, but its #2 entry still stands as the best launch in the series, outdoing 2006’s Hitman Blood Money by a factor of three.

The familiar faces of FIFA 13, Assassin’s Creed III and Halo 4 complete the top five.

Lego The Lord of the Rings at #6 is the second highest new entry, after which it’s a big old wait before we find Disney Epic Mickey 2: The Power of Two at #34, and Family Guy: Back to the Multiverse at #35. 3DS-exclusive Disney Epic Mickey: Power of Illusion takes #8 in the 3DS chart.

And where is PlayStation All-Stars Battle Royale? At #38. Hmm.

Meanwhile THQ can take some joy from this week’s chart, as hefty discounting has seen uDraw Studio re-enter at #13.

As predicted, sales of Call of Duty: Black Ops Declassified have fallen off a cliff now that people know that it’s no good. It’s down from #16 to #33.

    Do you know the spilt between sales of PS All-Stars between Vita and PS3?

    No, Chart-Track didn’t impart that information, the blighters. It’s #12 in the PS3 chart, and #8 in the PSV chart – which means almost nothing. Neither got into the top 40 individual formats chart by units, but the PS3 version is #28 in the individual formats chart by value – but it’s more expensive than the PSV version.

    I realise this isn’t helping… I’d guess the PS3 version was the lion’s share of sales, though.
