Black Ops 2 secures all formats top spot for fourth week

Bad week for Nintendo sees sales of Wii U titles drop and Paper Mario: Sticker Star barely register in 40th.

Call of Duty: Black Ops 2 takes the crown for a fourth consecutive week, becoming only the third title this year to accomplish the feat (the other two games FIFA 12 and, surprisingly, FIFA 13).

Elsewhere, Ubisoft’s Far Cry 3 performed well again on the back of positive reviews to hold second spot, while retailer promotions propelled Just Dance 4 up the chart from sixth to fourth with a 54% leap in sales week-on-week.

Nintendo’s Wii U meanwhile is still to see any of its bespoke titles make a dent on the top ten (with Nintendo Land dropping 15 places to 26th and New Super Mario Bros. U falling 22 places to 36th), while the company’s debutant 3DS game, Paper Mario: Sticker Star was only able to make is presence felt at 40th.
