Batman beats Spider-Man to top of UK chart

Lego Batman 2 beats newcomer The Amazing Spider-Man in comic-book contest for number one; strong Vita sales propel Metal Gear Solid HD Collection into top 10; Spec Ops hits at three.

Lego Batman 2: DC Super Heroes hung on to the top spot last week, fending off new release The Amazing Spider-Man into second place. Two further debuts made the top five last week: Spec Ops: The Line hit the chart in third, while Sega's London 2012 - The Official Video Game of the Olympic Games got a sporting chance at four. FIFA 12's 40th week in the chart sees it drop three places from last week to complete the top five.

Metal Gear Solid HD Collection's Vita release secures a top 10 spot

Tom Clancy's Ghost Recon: Future Soldier fell three places despite its PC release, and The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim climbed one place to seven thanks to the release of its Dawnguard expansion. Max Payne 3 drops four places to eight followed by chart regular Battlefield 3 at nine, giving Take-Two and EA two top 10 titles each. The Metal Gear Solid HD Collection scraped into the top 10, with its Vita release last week inducing a 532 percent increase in the game's sales, making it one of the platform's biggest releases since launch.

Newly released last week PS3 exclusive The Ratchet & Clank Collection narrowly missed out on the top 10 at 11, Mass Effect 3 jumped 21 places to 15 thanks to the release of its Mass Effect 3: Extended Cut DLC, and Halo: Combat Evolved Anniversary's retailer promotion meant it reentered at 21.

This week sees the release of RPG offerings The Secret World and turn-based PS3 exclusive Rainbow Moon. Two rhythm games also reach European shores this weak: Theatrhythm Final Fantasy and Beat the Beat: Rhythm Paradise (released in the US as Rhythm Heaven Fever).
