UK charts: Batman straight in at the top

Eidos' knight in shiny armour beats Lara.

Batman: Arkham Asylum has swooped to the top of the UK all-formats chart, providing Eidos with a champion bigger than both Tomb Raider: Legend and Tomb Raider: The Angel of Darkness.

The platform split went 55 per cent in Xbox 360's favour, and Batman arrives for PC on 18th September.

Elsewhere, little has changed. Ashes Cricket 2009 extends an impressive innings by nudging past last week's high-profile newcomer Wolfenstein to take three. Wolfenstein, therefore, falls to four, and is tailed by Wii Fit, Call of Duty: World at War, Mario Kart Wii and Tiger Woods.

Lego Batman enjoys a boost to take nine, while Call of Duty: Modern Warfare rounds out the chart at 10 - it just keeps selling.

Other newcomers are the Fallout 3: Add-On Pack 2 (Broken Steel, Point Lookout) at 20, resulting in the reappearance of Fallout 3 at 37.
