Rocksteady Studios and Warner Bros has enjoyed the fourth biggest launch in the UK this year, with Batman: Arkham City shooting straight to the top of the sales charts.

Batman: Arkham City was joined by The Sims 3: Pets, which had a reasonable debut in number six. Ratchet & Clank: All 4 One also fared better than we expected, with the co-operative PlayStation 3 exclusive debuting in the 24th spot. Not brilliant, but decent given the game's single-platform status and its release date timing. We actually didn't think it would chart so we're pleasantly surprised.

Hit the jump for the top ten.
