Call of Duty: Black Ops | Crysis 2

zumba1

Once again, our great gaming nation has spoken out to pledge its loyalty to health and exercise. Zumba Fitness has taken the top spot for a second week running. We're all health nuts when it comes right down to it, apparently.

LEGO Star Wars III and Crysis 2 are still bickering over second place, with Traveller's Tales latest family friendly masterpiece managing to edge out Crytek's shiny FPS. There are no new releases to speak of... but gamers will either be delighted or exasperated to see Call Of Duty: Black Ops back in the charts (likely due to the recent publicity surrounding it being crowned the best-selling entertainment product of 2010.

Elsewhere, Homefront is still in the top ten, which should be great news for even the most skittish and panicky THQ shareholders. See? 71% aggregate doesn't mean a bad game, you silly stockholders. Now make sure that Homefront 2 has a decent singleplayer campaign and you'll have an unstoppable hit on your hands.

Nintendo 3DS

Nintendo's 3DS console is set to hit British stores on the 25th... but you'll need something to play on it. To this end, we've collated a list of the launch titles along with constantly-updating feeds on the cheapest places to buy them. Here we go!

Pilotwings Resort

Pilotwings is a classic Ninty franchise that we're delighted to see return. Set in the airspace over Wuhu island, players will use a number of flying machines planes and even a flyingsquirrel-style wingsuit to take to the skies. Considering it's one of the few major first party launch titles, this is probably going to be a 3DS mainstay.

Super Street Fighter IV: 3D

ssfiv 3d It's Street Fighter IV. In 3D. With new awesome streetpass mechanics that will allow you to challenge complete strangers you happen to walk past. This is going to be huge.

Ridge Racer 3D

ridge racer 3d

It's Riiiiiiiidge Raaaaaaacer! This 3DS launch title is set to bring the addictive drift-heavy mechanics of one of gaming's most enduring racing franchises into the third dimension, and visually looks very neat despite the extra processing power required for stereoscopic 3D.

Ghost Recon: Shadow Wars

shadow wars Ubisoft haven't been marketing this one anywhere near as much as they should. Imagine Advance Wars, but with elite customisable Ghost soldiers, cutting-edge gear and loads of pyrotechnics. Tilting perspectives should make this one stand out from the crowd.
