Call of Duty: Black Ops 2 kept hold of its number one slot in the all formats chart despite an 81% drop in sales and competition from new entry Hitman Absolution.

By way of comparison that puts Black Ops 2′s second week sales up by 15% over last year’s Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 3 signalling another successful week for Activision Blizzard’s shooter franchise.

There are new entries further down the chart with Disney Epic Mickey 2: The Power of Two new at No. 34, Family Guy: Back to the Multiverse in at No. 35 and Sony’s PlayStation All-Stars Battle Royale starting out at No. 38. Results which won’t please the execs at Disney, Activision and Sony respectively.

Predictions for next week: Far Cry 3, New Super Mario Bros. Wii, Nintendo Land, ZombiU.
