Call of Duty: Black Ops held its lead on the UK sales charts this week, and Ubisoft's Assassin's Creed: Brotherhood debuted at number two, reports tracking firm Chart-Track.

For the week ended November 20, Call of Duty: Black Ops remained at number one despite an 85 percent sales decrease, while Assassin's Creed: Brotherhood marks the biggest launch yet for an Assassin's Creed title.

Assassin's Creed: Brotherhood takes place in Rome, continuing the story of Assassin's Creed II, and features competitive multiplayer, a first for the franchise.

EA and Criterion Games' Need for Speed: Hot Pursuit rounded out the top three, and is the only other new title in the top 10.

Harry Potter: The Deathly Hallows, EA's other new title this week, did not make the top 10 and landed at number 20.

Nintendo's Wii Party and Wii Sports Resort returned to the top 10 this week thanks to a retailer promotion for the Wii hardware bundle.

Titles falling from the top 10 this week include The Sims 3, Fallout: New Vegas, and Football Manager 2011.

Below are Chart-Track's all-platforms sales charts, which include unit sales of all versions of a given title.
