Batman Still Number One, Five Weeks Running

Apparently there’s a new Batman film out. This, coupled with the fact that LEGO Batman 2 is actually pretty good means that everyone’s still buying the game – it’s still number one in the UK sales charts after five consecutive weeks.

SEGA’s Olympics game – which is not quite as good – holds onto number two, and will no doubt still be riding high as Bolt and friends hit the track in a few days down in That London. Mario and Sonic are still up there too.

Vita software seems quiet, let’s hope gamescom helps to shift that next month with some nice announcements, but good to see the wonderful Kingdom Hearts selling nicely for the 3DS.



  1. Wow, that is a cracking placing for Kingdom Hearts! Can’t say I’ll be getting a copy but its refreshing nonetheless to see a non-Mario 3DS game in the charts.
    With new releases coming to a halt over the coming month or two (which still confuses me – surely you would want to release your games while kids are off school so they can actually play them?!) I can’t imagine we will see much of a change to these positions for a while.

    • Bear in mind this time of year software sales are in the low 1000’s so getting no 6 is not too good. It probably sold 1k copies.

  2. Ghost Recon at Number 3 is interesting… Any good? (Yes I’ve read the reviews, just wanted TSAers’ opinions).

    • Depends what you are looking for really.
      If, like me, you loved the GRAW series and were looking forward to a sequel, move along, this is easily the worst GR in the series.

      If however you are just looking for a solid third-person shooter with a strong focus on co-op (plus the occasional stealth section) I can highly recommend it.
      Once I accepted Future Soldier isn’t really a Ghost Recon game I found myself really enjoying it – particularly the horde-esqe “Guerilla” mode

  3. I see Arkham City has gone up as well, really need to give that a go even if I particularly hated arkham asylum

    • You should give Arham City a go as it is much better them AA. Plus there is more to do this time around and the combat system has been improved a lot with more combos etc.. Oh and for not liking AA i shall batdo this to you. *throws a giant batarang at OK*

      • Those were my issues, was over too quickly and combat was boring and repetitive. By the sounds of it that’s cleared up so im tempted :)

      • It’s only repitive if you stick to using the same moves. In fact, Ac requires you to use different moves as certain enemies are immune to certain moves. Oh and all of the gadgets are unlocked at the start.(well all of the gadgets from the last game are). Also Catwoman doesn’t really add that much to the story so it doesn’t matter if you get it new or preowned or a brand new preowed copy. :p

    • AA and AC both quality pieces of gameage..

  4. I’m not surprised that the Bats has grappled his way up the chart as everyone is in the batmood due to the Dark Knight Rises. Rimlag seems to be doing well and we should get Dawnguard this week or next week and hopefully patch 1.6 as i can’t believe bugthesda has delayed the patch because it contains Dawnguard files. Surely they can disable access to them untill you buy Dawnguard.

  5. Shame the film is so bloody boring.

    • Really? You thought the Dark Knight Rises was boring?

    • Ah no way man I thought it was amazing, so much better than the previous two (And I liked those films)

  6. Last time I played a LEGO game was in 1999 or 2000, will give Batman LEGO a go as soon as it drops to £10 and I’ve been a huge fan of Batman since I was a kid. Couldn’t care less for the other superheros though.

    • Good luck with getting it for a tenner – Lego games from 4 years ago (without trophies) still sell at £20.!! :O

      • Not entirely true, I picked up Lego Pirates of the Caribbean in PC World yesterday for £9.97. :)

      • Ah fair enough – In that case, i shall change my standpoint;

        Good luck with getting it for a tenner – On consoles Lego games from 4 years ago (without trophies) still sell at £20.!! :O

        Better? :P

      • Depends if he picked it up for pc even though twas from pc world it still may have been for console wha ha ha lego games not for me me thinks.
