Activision's Call of Duty: Black Ops 2 has just enjoyed its fifth consecutive week leading the UK all format chart, matching LEGO Batman 2 for number of weeks at the top spot in 2012.

Hitman: Absolution makes a surprising climb to second, while FIFA 13 keeps dribbling third for its sixth consecutive week. Halo 4, Need for Speed and LEGO LOTRO keep their posts.

What's with all the chart hogging? Must be those chilly winds keeping consumers from rocking the UK sales boat too much. Even WWE '13 and Skylanders Giants are holding.

Below is the UK all format chart top 20 for the week ending December 15th.

From all the venom from existing players this surprises me. For a title that, supposedly, offers some departures from the usual "CoD" (cowboy scenes?) it doesn't look too bad, though the engine is getting old and showing it. Perhaps many parents have bought as Christmas presents for the little ' me.
