LEGO Marvel Super Heroes Summary
FIFA 14 almost had the UK chart crown last week but was 600 sales short of toppling Call of Duty: Ghosts which is enjoying its 3rd consecutive week on the throne, and its 5th since launch.
LEGO Marvel Super Heroes rockets to 3rd place thanks to promotions, with Battlefield 4 pulling back 4th. Assassin's Creed IV: Black Flag plunders 5th with Just Dance 2014 boogying 6th.
Hilarity: expect this. Charlie Brooker, in a bid to promote his 'Videogames Changed the World' one-off special, goes on Channel 4 News and sits down with presenter Jon Snow who has never played video games.
Brooker attempts to explain some of the medium to Snow and even puts LEGO Marvel Heroes into his hands, after having struggled to put the game disc in. "You're like a dog at the controls of a helicopter."
Activision's Call of Duty: Ghosts has kept the top UK chart spot for another week as Traveller's Tales' LEGO Marvel Super Heroes debuts second. FIFA 14 rises third, swapping with Assassin's Creed IV.
Battlefield 4 has been knocked down fifth, followed by Grand Theft Auto V. The latest LEGO instalment has become the second biggest in week one sales, beaten only by LEGO Indiana Jones.
Warner Bros Interactive launched LEGO Marvel Super Heroes yesterday on every conceivable platform, including PC, Xbox 360 and PlayStation 3, as well as heavily promoted Marvel minifigs sitting outside Hamleys in the UK.
Marvel announced at their New York Comic Con 2013 panel that a demo for LEGO Marvel Super Heroes will be arriving this week for PC, Xbox 360 and PlayStation 3 on the 15th October.
