The Amazing Spider-Man 2 is the UK’s new number one, knocking Titanfall down to #2.

It’s Activision’s first no.1 since Call of Duty: Ghosts, although Chart-Track reports sales were down 5% from the last Spider-Man tie-in.

The individual format chart reveals that the PS4 version shifted the most copies, followed by Xbox 360 and then PS3. The Wii U and 3DS versions failed to enter the top 40 individual format chart.

The rest of the UK’s top five is the usual mixture of FIFA 14, 2014 FIFA World Cup Brazil and Call of Duty: Ghosts, in that order.

At #9 it’s a new entry, and a surprising one at that – Ubisoft’s Child of Light. As a digital release, all chart sales are from the Deluxe Edition which is available only for PC and PS3/PS4. You have to admit, that’s good going. It’s also #2 in the PlayStation 4 chart, under The Amazing Spider-Man 2.

Mario Golf: World Tour is the only other new arrival, putting in at #22, although Dark Souls II has risen up a few places to #14 off the back of the last week’s PC version.

In the single-format charts Etrain Odyssey Untold: Millennium Girl enters at #10 in the 3DS chart. With decent scores behind it, we would have expected it to chart a little higher.
