LEGO Batman 2 is still at the top of the UK retail charts, making it three weeks as the industry’s best selling packaged game. Of course, it’s over pretty much every single format possible but – still – it’s holding off the likes of FIFA and Call of Duty, which is nice.
Elsewhere, as the olympics warm up, SEGA’s official game is selling nicely, but Activision’s Spider-Man game drops down a spot to number three.
See if you can spot FIFA in there, though, and Call of Duty. You might also see a little typo in there relating to Black Ops – we’re blaming MCV for this horrendous, spirit crushing oversight and will be demanding a full apology and retraction as soon as possible.

The official tracking agency tells us that the Olympics game increased in sales by 81%, whilst Spider-Man dropped by 15% and Spec Ops: The Line was down by 24% in terms of sales. Dead Island’s new GOTY edition includes all the previous DLC, so might be worth picking up.
Modern Warfare 3 is up there due to lots of price promotions across the board, and sees an almost 200% increase in sales. The game is now the fifth all time best selling game in the UK, and the third in terms of revenue – behind, wait for it, Black Ops and Modern Warfare 2.
