The ‘Amazing Spider-Man 2’ ends ‘Titanfall’s 3-week reign at the top.
It’s Activision Blizzard’s first No1 since ‘Call of Duty: Ghosts’ in December 2013. It goes one better than its 2012 predecessor ‘The Amazing Spider-Man’ in terms of chart position, despite a 5% drop in sales. ‘Titanfall’ (-17%) is pushed down to No2 but stays ahead of ‘FIFA 14’ (-1%) which climbs a place to No3.
The second FIFA title ‘2014 FIFA World Cup Brazil’ (-33%) slips two places to No4 rounding off a trio of EA titles in the Top 4. ‘Call of Duty: Ghosts’ (-24%) is at No5 ahead of ‘Minecraft: Xbox 360 Edition’ (-1%) which holds steady at No6. New from Ubisoft this week is ‘Child of Light’ which debuts at No9. This Deluxe Edition hits the shelves at retail and features a host of bonus content and collectibles alongside a digital download code for the game itself. A PC release for ‘Dark Souls II’ (+36%) gives a boost to Bandai Namco’s title propelling it up four places to No14.
The only other new release to make an impact in the Top 40 this week is Nintendo’s ‘Mario Golf: World Tour’ which lands for 3DS at No22.
