Black Ops 2, FIFA 13 Highest Selling Media Properties in UK for 2012

There will be explosions.
Unbelievable as it sounds, Treyarch’s Call of Duty: Black Ops 2 and Electronic Arts’ FIFA 13 were the two highest selling Media Properties in the United Kingdom. Keep in mind the number of big games, movies and albums that came out then and colour yourself puzzles as we are doing right now.

Information provided by the Entertainment Retailers Association states that Black Ops 2 sold 2.67 million units last year, with FIFA 13 selling 2.6 million. Remember, this was within the final quarter of the year. Compare that to, say, The Dark Knight Rises which sold 1.7 million.

The other major game to figure in the ERA’s top 20 was Assassin’s Creed 3 with 886,000 units at number 13 – along with the above two, it is one of 7 games of the overall 40 properties.

In one of the more hilarious comments though, Kim Bayley stated that “the quality of releases was at least partly to blame” when combined sales of the top 40 were down by 25 percent year-on-year.
