UK Charts: Lego Batman 2 the Summer Champ?
For the fifth week in a row, LEGO Batman 2: DC Super Heroes has kept its crown, making it the number one selling game in the UK Sales Charts for July and possibly already the entire Summer.
With the London Olympics coming up, Sega’s London 2012: The Official Videogame has also been doing well, remaining in second place, while Ghost Recon: Future Soldier managed to move up to third position this week, coming from 5.
Activision’s The Amazing Spider-Man dropped from 3 to 4, but that’s partially made up for the publisher as Modern Warfare 3 rises again from 6 to 5. Meanwhile, Square Enix has the only newcomer in the Top10 with Kingdom Hearts 3D for the 3DS which enters at 6, and that other Batman game, Arkham Asylum, jumps from 11 to 7.
Mario & Sonic London 2012 Olympic Games and Max Payne 3 also did well last week and managed to re-enter the Top10 at positions 8 and 9 while The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim dropped from 7 to 10.
Worth noting: while Activision has two Call of Duty games in the Top20 (Black Ops is listed at 17), EA’s Battlefield 3 is nowhere to be seen despite some recent promotional material being sent out for the upcoming Armored Kill DLC that will be released in September.
