Spider-Man, climbs the chart like a good game can

We very nearly had an all-new UK top 5 this week. Lego Batman 2: DC Super Heroes remains at #1 and is followed by new entries The Amazing Spider-Man at #2, Spec Ops: The Line at #3 and London 2012 at #4. FIFA 12 falls from #2 to #5.

See, Activision. If you release decent Spider-Man games, plenty of people will go out and buy them.

Metal Gear Solid: HD Collection is back in at #10 due to the release of the PS Vita version. Apparently sales were only a little bit behind PS Vita-exclusives Gravity Rush and Unit 13.

Not far behind is The Ratchet & Clank Trilogy – which we forgot to mention in last week’s new release round-up because the dates kept changing – at #11.

Mass Effect 3 has shot back up to #15, due to price cuts. A few online retailers were selling it for £14.99 last week. We assume that the alternative ending DLC has helped fuel sales of it too.
