Lego Batman 2 has held the top spot in the UK all format video game chart for the third week running.

That was despite a challenge from Sega’s London 2012: The Official Video Game, which nearly doubled in sales since its launch last week, and moved up from number four to number two.

The Amazing Spider-Man, which came in at number two last week, slid to number three. Spec Ops: The Line also dropped a place from number three to number four.

This week’s highest new entry was at number five, from Koch Media, who celebrated decent sales from the Game of the Year edition of Dead Island (which comes complete with all DLC).

Dead Island was the second biggest new gaming intellectual property of last year, second only to LA Noire.

Skyrim is still selling, and found itself at number six, followed by FIFA 12, which is finally slipping down the top ten now Euro 2012 is over. Modern Warfare 3 trebled in sales and shot back up the chart to number eight, due to price promos as ever.

Tom Clancy’s Ghost Recon: Future Soldier was at number nine, followed by FIFA Street rounding off the top ten.

Theatrhythm: Final Fantasy was a new entry at number nineteen for Square Enix, a 3DS only title. And The Secret World, a PC only MMORPG from Funcom, published by EA, only managed a disappointing number thirty-eight, barely making the top forty.
