UK top 40: Lego Batman 2 blocks Amazing Spider-Man

Debuts for Spec Ops, London Olympics and Ratchet trilogy.

Lego Batman 2 has held onto the UK all-formats chart top spot despite tough competition from a handful of big new releases.

Film tie-in Amazing Spider-Man swung in to second place, shooter Spec Ops: The Line took third and the official London 2012 Olympics game finished fourth.

FIFA 12 fell to fifth as a result.

Ghost Recon: Future Soldier slipped to sixth - despite the arrival of the PC version - and Skyrim climbed a place to seventh, thanks to the new Dawnguard DLC expansion.

Max Payne 3 was eighth, and Battlefield 3 ninth.

The Vita release of The Metal Gear Solid HD Collection helped that game re-enter the all-formats chart in 10th.

MGS HD Collection also became one of the biggest Vita launches outside of the console's launch week, apparently. Sales were only "a small number" behind Gravity Rush and Unit 13.

The Ratchet & Clank Trilogy arrived in 11th.

Mass Effect 3 jumped significantly from 36th to 15th, thanks to shop deals, as did the Xbox 360 remake of Halo 1 - up from 40th to 21st.

The full top 40 continues after the video below.
