In a real underdog story, plucky up-and-comer Call Of Duty: Black Ops II has beaten the big boys to the top of the UK charts.
In less sarcastic news, though Treyarch's shooter was the biggest launch of the year, it sold 300,000 less than the original Black Ops, making it the 4th biggest UK release of all time. Bizarrely, its poxy portable counterpart Black Ops: Declassified managed to beat a record - biggest Vita launch of the year - despite only clocking in at 17th place. And being crap.
Wonderbook managed to attain 25th place, impressive considering its niche appeal. The augmented reality experiment managed to beat LittleBigPlanet Karting, which clocked in at a somewhat lukewarm 28th.
As always, we've got the official UK top ten after the break.
