The LEGO Movie Videogame has taken the top spot of the UK chart, becoming the sixth LEGO title to do so. It’s also the fifth LEGO game present in the current UK top 40. Kerching!

We attempted to discover what the last movie tie-in to enter at #1 was, and after a spot of research, we firmly believe it was Activision’s Spider-Man 3 back in May 2007. They really are a dying breed, aren’t they?

Price cuts help Call of Duty: Ghosts to remain at #2. Chart-Track reports there were 15,000 units between that and The LEGO Movie.

Then at #3 it’s Lightning Returns. Incidentally, it manages to enter at #1 in the PlayStation 3 chart, but has to settle for #4 in the Xbox 360 chart.

Back to the UK top 40: FIFA 14 falls to #4, while GTA V rounds off the top five.

Moving down the chart slightly, Fable Anniversary – which entered at #3 last week – now sits at #10, while Tomb Raider: Definitive Edition also stumbles, dropping from #4 to #11.

New PS Vita releases Danganronpa: Trigger Happy Havoc and Toukiden: The Age of Demons somewhat predictably fail to make the top 40, but they do enter the PS Vita chart at #1 and #2 respectively.

Then over in the DS chart – which doesn’t see much action these days – LEGO: Marvel Super Heroes enters at #1. After one hefty delay it was finally released last week. Better late than never, we suppose.
