Train2Game News: UK Charts – LEGO Batman 2 No.1 for third week running

LEGO Batman 2: DC Super Heroes holds top spot of the UK charts for the third week in a row, the position the Warner Brothers title has remained since being released last month.

London 2012: The Official Video Game from SEGA sees sales almost double as it rises two places to No.2 as the Olympic Games get closer.  Last week’s new releases The Amazing Spider-Man and Spec Ops: The Line both drop one place each to No.3 and No.4 respectively.

New entry Dead Island: Game of the Year Edition completes the top five.  Originally released in September last year, the standard edition of Dead Island held top spot for two weeks.

The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim is up one place to No.6, moving above FIFA 12 which drops to No.7. Meanwhile, Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 3 re-enters the top ten at No.8 after moving up 26 places after price promotions at various retailers.

Tom Clancy’s Ghost Recon: Future Soldier slides down three to No.9, while FIFA Street moves up four to complete the top ten.

Theatrhythm: Final Fantasy for 3DS reaches No.19 in its first week on sale, while physical copies of Funcom’s The Secret World see it make No.38 in the retail charts. However, the figures don’t take into account digital sales.

The UKIE Gfk Chart-Track All Formats Top 10 for the week ending 7th July 2012 is therefore as follows:

1. LEGO Batman 2: DC Super Heroes (Warner Bros)
2. London 2012: The Official Video Game (Sega)
3. The Amazing Spider-Man (Activision)
4. Spec Ops: The Line (2K Games)
5. Dead Island Game of the Year Edition (Koch Media)
6. The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim (Bethesda)
7. FIFA 12 (EA)
8. Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 3 (Activision)
9. Ghost Recon: Future Soldier (Ubisoft)
10. FIFA Street (EA)
