The Amazing Spider-Man 2 Game Tops UK Sales Charts

The Amazing Spider-Man 2 video game takes the #1 spot in the UK, but how long will it last?

The Amazing Spider-Man 2 may have started with 5% lower sells than the first one, but that didn't stop it from taking the #1 spot and taking Titanfall down to second in the UK. Apparently, critics aren't liking the movie much, though I thought it was great. Spider-Man games are usually very fun and if it is anything like the first Amazing Spider-Man game, fans will love it.

In related news, Child of Light starts off strong at #9 and Dark Souls 2 jumps to #14. Below are the top 20 selling games in the UK for the week ending on May 3rd, along with increases and decreases when applicable. These numbers come from the GfK chart-track.
