Hey Gaming Newsgroup subscribers, the UKIE (The Association for UK Interactive Entertainment)  have released charts for the best selling games of 2010, and you win absolutely zero TSA points if you guessed Call Of Duty: Black Ops shifted the most units!

Even just after its November release, the multiplatform first person shooter set sales records by grossing £113.8 million ($177.3 million) in one week and marking the all-time biggest grossing week for video games in the UK.

Electronic Arts’ ever-popular FIFA 11 found success across multiple platforms as well, falling just behind Black Ops on the 2010 all formats chart, the Xbox 360 chart, and the PlayStation 3 chart.
