Wii U may have just come out here in the UK, but it has failed to set the UK charts alight this week. Call of Duty: Black Ops 2 holds firm in the crow’s nest, while Far Cry 3 enters at second. Check out our run-down below.

Nintendo’s highest Wii U entry is Nintendo Land at 11th place, surpassing fellow console releases New Super Mario Bros. U and ZombiU. Bear in mind however that it’s a single format, has just come out and is in limited supply.

If the American market is any measure – in which Wii U sold 400,000 units in its first week of launch, we could see the console and its software do big guns when next week’s chart releases on Monday 10th Dec.

Meanwhile Call of Duty: Black Ops 2 holds firm at the top spot, despite analyst claims that the series has entered a sales decline.

Island-hopping shooter Far Cry 3 has debuted at second place, proving that insanity sells. This is despite a slew of Uplay connection issues on PC that disrupted play.
