Spider-Man topples Titanfall in the UK

Xbox behemoth ousted from number one by The Amazing Spider-Man 2

Activision Blizzard's The Amazing Spiderman 2 unseated Titanfall from its place at the top of the UK charts.

Despite selling 5 per cent fewer copies in its debut week than its predecessor in 2012, The Amazing Spiderman 2 - developed by Beenox - still entered the chart one position higher. That is largely down to sales of Titanfall, which declined 17 per cent week-on-week, thereby ending its impressive run at the top of the chart.

Other new entries last week included Ubisoft's Child of Light, which entered the chart at 9, and the PC version of Dark Souls II, which pushed Namco Bandai's unforgiving RPG up to 14.

Among the new releases, the underachiever of the week was Mario Golf: World Tour on 3DS, which only managed to enter the chart at 22 despite being on Nintendo's most popular platform.
