London 2012 is still number one

London 2012: The Official Video Game maintains its position at the top of the UK games chart

London 2012: The Official Video Game has hung onto to the top slot of the UK video games sales chart

Perhaps buoyed by the recent success of Team GB at the London Olympics, Sega’s official tie-in with the Games has fought off competition to retain the number one position. Mario & Sonic London 2012 Olympic Games also benefited from the Games, hanging onto the number three spot for the second week in a row.

Elsewhere in the charts, Batman Arkham City climbed to the number four slot and Lego Batman maintained its grip on second position. The highest climber this week was Ubisoft’s Assassin’s Creed: Revelations, which moved up five positions to take sixth position. Of the new releases last week, only Risen 2: Dark Waters managed to crack the top 20, landing at 14 – a vast improvement on its predecessor, Risen, which debut at 29.
