UK software chart sees two new entries in the top three

This week's number 1 belongs to the spandex sporting heroes of Warner's Injustice: Gods Among Us, which gives the publisher its first taste of the top spot since LEGO Batman 2: DC Super Heroes.

The new entry pushed BioShock Infinite down to 2, while number 3 was home to the only other new entry, Fire Emblem: Awakening for Nintendo 3DS. It was released alongside a special edition 3DS XL Blue, which represented 31 per cent of 3DS XL sales for the week, and contributed to a 49 per cent boost for the handhelds sale compared to last week.

Further down the chart a couple of titles managed to sneak back into the top twenty, with God Of War: Ascension rising from 22 to 18, and Sleeping Dogs making it back up to 20 from 24.

Skyrim is like a fart, a smell that just won't go away. Except it's not bad, it's awesome! So perhaps it's not like a fart......... unless you really like farts.

I'm really rooting for Awakening to be the first Fire Emblem to crack 1 million worldwide. It really deserves that success.
