CoD: Black Ops weekly sales down 85%

Xbox 360 version still the format of choice for Treyarch's shooter in the UK

Second week sales of Call of Duty: Black Ops fell a massive 85 per cent in the UK, but the slowdown wasn't enough to stop the shooter claiming a second straight week at No.1 on the All Formats chart this morning.


The Xbox 360 version continued to lead overall Black Ops sales, accounting for 54 per cent of the weekly total, versus the PS3 edition's 40 per cent. The split was 54 / 41 in 360's favour the previous week.

While the game held the top spot on the weekly chart, it was only 63,000 sales ahead of Assassin's Creed: Brotherhood, which enjoyed the biggest ever Assassin's Creed launch to debut at No.2.
