Swooping straight to the top spot Batman: Arkham City is the biggest ever launch for Warner Bros, with double the first week sales of its predecessor.
Only Gears Of War 3, LA Noire and FIFA 12 have seen bigger launches in 2012.
Football Manager 2012 entered the chart at 3, with EA's The Sims 3: Pets debuting at 6. Lower down the chart there were two new entries, Ratchet & Clank: All 4 One at 24, and just scraping in at 40, Harmonix Music Systems' Dance Central 2.
This week's chart also saw some big drops, as Dark Souls fell from 7 to 18, and sports title Jonah Lomu Rugby Challenge from 10 to 19.
