Batman triumphs for third week on UK chart

Dead Island: GOTY Edition and Theatrhythm: Final Fantasy this week's new entries

Just two new entries in the UK software charts top 20 this week meant that the caped crusader managed his third week running at number one with Lego Batman 2: DC Super Heroes.

There were only two new entries in the top twenty this week, the new Game Of The Year Edition of Dead Island, which entered at 5, and the Nintendo 3DS title Theatrhythm: Final Fantasy, which entered at 19.

Beyond the top 20 The Secret World entered at 38, and sold 74 per cent of its week one sales in 24 hours after launching on Tuesday. It should be noted that this game was available digitally, as well as at retail, so this represents just a part of its first week sales.

It was a great week on the chart for Call Of Duty: Modern Warfare 3, which thanks to retail promotions saw a sudden leap in sales and jumped 26 places up the chart to number 8.
