Call of Duty: Black Ops has become the 7th best selling game ever. We have spoken to you previously asking you what your best weapon setups, what your favorite tactics are for the zombie mode as well as reporting all of the connection problems that you are facing. Another of my favorites is the most amazing Tomahawk kill you will ever see.
According to Eurogamer.com’s Fred Dutton, COD: Black Ops absolutely smashed the sales for November accounting for more than 25% of all software retailing, the new Assassins Creed: Brotherhood also did rather well hitting a cool 2nd spot. A new comer that everyone loves jumped in at number 7 and I think it will continue to rise is Donkey Kong Country Returns, Nintendo have even dedicated their homepage to the great ape. I remember in my younger days me and my friends all being cramped around the TV playing the original DK Country, trying to defeat King K.Rool to get back the banana hoard.
Interestingly on the hardware side of things, Microsoft has grown considerably up 68% most probably due to the Kinect arriving on the scene. Interestingly the PS3 has dropped to the bottom of the big 4with sales down 25%. Obviously people are favoring the Kinect over the PS Move.

As a reminder if you haven’t got Black Ops already, we have included the official trailer at the bottom of the article, courtesy of Treyarch.
