UK Chart: Black Ops II knocked off top spot

On its fifth week since launch, Ubisoft’s Far Cry 3 enjoys a first stint at number one in the UK chart compiled by Chart Track, replacing Activision’s Call of Duty: Black Ops II, which drops to number 3 after hogging the top slot for six consecutive weeks.

Overall there’s not much movement, with not a single new entry in the entire top 40 and the highest re-entry being Bethesda’s Doom 3: BFG Edition which charts at number 30. Also notable is the continued chart absence of Wii U exclusive titles like New Super Mario Bros. U, Nintendo Land, and ZombiU.

    A reason many people outside of USA dont like americans is because they shit on the world's favorite sport with their "boring" comments.

    True. Soccer is a huge international sport. Not surprising the UK has FIFA on the top 2. I'm surprised it's not on the Top 1. But well, Far Cry 3 was new anways.

    Fifa? FIFA?! A sports game is beating Black ops 2? Well, it makes sense because they're both games whose annual installments are the same. Still, i guess the UK really loves soccer. And Far Cry 3.

    Actually... soccer is extremely popular in pretty much all the world except the USA XD And yeah, the Brits do love their soccer more so than most, even.
