UK Charts: Black Ops back on top

Call of Duty: Black Ops is once again top of the UKIE GfK Chart-Track All Formats Top 40. It’s Black Ops’ seventh number one and now the game only needs one more to match Modern Warfare 2’s total of eight weeks at the top.

It marks something of a revival for Call of Duty: Black Ops, which had slipped to third last week. The change at the top pushes FIFA 11 – which had held top spot for the previous two weeks – back down to second, while Just Dance 2 drops one place to third.

The top five completed by two motion controller based games with Wii Fit plus up one place in fourth while Kinect Sports has jumped from fifth to tenth spot.

The rise of these two pushes Need for Speed: Hot Pursuit down two places to sixth while Assassin’s Creed: Brotherhood and former Number 1 Gran Turismo 5 drop a spot each to seventh and eighth respectively.

Another former chart topper in the form of Fallout: New Vegas remains in the top ten but slips to ninth while Sony’s PC and PS3 MMO DC Universe Online claims 10th spot in its first week on sale.

The UKIE GfK Chart-Track All Formats Top Ten for the week ending January 15th 2011 is as follows:

1. Call of Duty : Black Ops (Activision)
2. FIFA 11 (EA)
3. Just Dance 2(Ubisoft)
4. Wii Fit Plus (Nintendo)
5. Kinect Sports (Microsoft)
6. Need for Speed: Hot Pursuit (EA)
7. Assassin’s Creed: Brotherhood (Ubisoft)
8. Gran Turismo 5 (Sony)
9. Fallout: New Vegas (Bethesda)
10. DC Universe Online (SOE)

The coming week sees a couple of big releases in the form of the long awaited Mass Effect 2 release for PlayStation 3, and LittleBigPlanet 2.  The latter has been getting some great review scores which you can see here on the Train2Game blog.

So Train2Game, are you surprised to see Black Ops back on top? What do you think about DC Universe Online making the top ten? And will one of the big new entries this week be Number 1 come next Monday?
