Newsbrief: Call of Duty: Black Ops II held on to the top of the UK sales charts for a second week despite an 81 percent drop in sales, keeping the newly released Hitman: Absolution at bay.

Absolution was still the best launch for the Hitman game in the UK ever, outselling the launch week of Hitman: Blood Money by nearly three times as much, according to Chart-Track.

Lego The Lord of the Rings was the other new entry to make it into the top 10 last week, entering at number six. The charts weren't so kind to other new titles, however, as Disney Epic Mickey 2: The Power of Two only managed number 34, with Family Guy: Back to the Multiverse launching just below that at number 35.

Sony's PlayStation All-Stars Battle Royale fared even worse, only just managing to enter the top 40 at number 38, across both the PlayStation 3 and PS Vita platforms.

Did anyone really expect All Stars to sell like gangbusters. Every Sony exclusive has unperformed! With the only game doing similar in numbers being Uncharted. I feel it will have a similar showing in the US. People on the PS3 would rather play Call of Duty. The best selling game on the console then their own 1st party games.

I would have been pretty surprised to hear PS All-Stars do anywhere near as well as the rest of the games mentioned on this list, since the rest are all multi-platform. At the very least, most of them have a release on both PS3 and Xbox360, with the latter being the more popular console in the west. Considering all that and the consistent drain that's been going on in the retail console market lately, I would be surprised to see more than a dozen console exclusives within the top 50. Other than Mario and/or Halo 4 of course.
