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.
Top 40 Entertainment Software (All Prices), Week Ending 7 July 2012:
1 – LEGO BATMAN 2: DC SUPER HEROES – WARNER BROS.
2 – LONDON 2012: THE OFFICIAL VIDEO GAME – SEGA
3 – THE AMAZING SPIDER-MAN – ACTIVISION
4 – SPEC OPS: THE LINE – 2K GAMES
