Black Ops 2 & FIFA 13 Dominate 2012 UK Entertainment Charts

2012's biggest entertainment properties have finally been ranked in order of sales; encompassing the biggest movies and albums of the year. However, videogames have managed to secure the top two positions, while some of the most successful games of 2012 rub shoulders with the likes of Avengers Assemble, Prometheus and Twilight.

If you want to see how games stack up with other forms of entertainment in the UK, we have the entire top forty below for your perusal.

As you'd expect, Black Ops 2 and FIFA 13 were crowned as the best-selling entertainment properties of 2012, shifting over 2.6 million copies apiece (a million more than The Dark Knight Rises, which came in third). Considering how much each copy usually costs, we're talking about some serious money here.

Assassin's Creed 3 crops up in 13th place, edging out Now That's What I Call Music 82, while Halo 4 earned a respectable 21st position. Elsewhere, you'll find Hitman Absolution at # 36, Just Dance 4 at # 37 and Far Cry 3 sneaking onto the list No.40. Doubtlessly Ubisoft will be chuffed to see no less than three titles raking in the cash.

Since we're a gaming site, I'll leave the rest of the discussion about movies and music up to you. Without further ado, here's the UK 2012 top forty entertainment sales charts - data courtesy of Chart-Track and Official Charts Company.
