UK Games Charts 13/08/12 – Olympic Fever Persists

The top three hasn’t changed in three weeks, something which will surely differ in next week’s charts following the releases of Darksiders II and Sleeping Dogs this week. The official Olympic tie-in is holding fast, despite a 20% decline in sales and Mario and Sonic’s take on the Olympics remains beneath Lego Batman 2 in third position.

Lego has a strong presence, with Batman still riding high and Harry Potter holding up the top twenty. Lego Pirates of the Caribbean was also just outside this chart in 21st position. Mario also has a number of titles in the chart, aside from his Olympic outing there’s Karting and 3D Land in there. Those are surely soon to be joined by New Super Mario Bros 2 upon its release too.
