As Ghost Recon: Future Soldier shuffles back up the charts to round out the week in third, Activision follows in fourth and fifth with The Amazing Spider-Man leading in the ageing Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 3 release.
With the week’s highest new entry, Kingdom Hearts 3D: Dream Drop Distance entering sixth in the charts, Batman mania sees last year’s Batman: Arkham City shoot back to seventh ahead of Mario & Sonic at the London 2012 Olympic Games and Max Payne 3 in eighth and ninth spots respectively. Rounding out the week’s top ten is former chart topper The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim.
