Even the hype of the impending Olympic Games wasn’t enough of a springboard to push London 2012 above Lego Batman 2 in this week’s all formats videogames chart.
This week’s only new entry is Dead Island GOTY Edition (which barely registers as a new entry at all) in a chart that confirms that there is indeed a summer drought of games releases right now, even if we’ve yet to actually see much of an actual summer to justify it.

1 – LEGO BATMAN 2: DC SUPER HEROES – WARNER BROS.
2 – LONDON 2012: THE OFFICIAL VIDEO GAME – SEGA
