Looks like Activisition was right to be cautiously optimistic over the blockbuster five-day sale record for Call of Duty: Black Ops. Just seven days after its landmark launch week, Chart-Track reports that sales for Black Ops have already tapered off 85 percent in the United Kindom.
That's a serious dip in European sales momentum, but it was still able to maintain its hold as the top selling game for the week ending November 20th. The runner-up game was Ubisoft's Assassin's Creed: Brotherhood, the direct follow-up to Assassin's Creed II with a strong online multiplayer focus.
According to Chart-Track, Assassin's Creed: Brotherhood enjoyed the biggest launch yet for the Ubisoft franchise, with "only" 63,000 games separating its combined unit sales last week from those for Black Ops.
