Sleeping Dogs maintains first place for the second week as Darksiders II launches into second.

The Darksiders II sequel debuted with an 80% sales increase over the launch of its 2010 predecessor. New Super Mario Bros. 2 falls to third with a drop of a quarter in sales following its first week. London 2012 (-31%) grabs fourth ahead of new entry Transformers: Fall of Cybertron, the sequel to another 2010 game – Transformers: War for Cybertron.

Lego Batman 2 drops from fourth to sixth, a respectable finish considering the new releases over the past two weeks.

Ghost Recon: Future Soldier is up one place to seventh as others fall around it – Mario & Sonic: London 2012 Olympic Games and Batman: Arkham City formally at fifth and sixth, now at eighth and ninth respectively. Lego Harry Potter: Years 5-7 sticks at tenth to complete the UK Top 10.
