Batman: Arkham Origins

Batman: Arkham Origins has jumped ahead of Grand Theft Auto V to the summit of the UK sales charts. The latest entry in Warner Bros’ third-person property garnered a similar number of sales to Batman: Arkham Asylum – but failed to outpace its hotly anticipated successor Batman: Arkham City. To date, LEGO Batman: The Video Game remains the best-selling title starring the caped crusader.

It was a fairly predictable week elsewhere, with FIFA 14 tussling for the championship in third, and Skylanders: Swap Force sticking around in fourth. The recently discounted LEGO Lord of the Rings returned to the throne in seventh, while Just Dance 2014 boogied into tenth. Finally, Beyond: Two Souls slipped all the way into thirteenth.
