Ratchet and Clank: All 4 One News for PS3

Batman: Arkham City has secured the All Formats All Prices UK video game chart No.1 spot, after a huge week of sales which sees the game claim the fourth best launch week of the year so far - behind FIFA 12, Gears of War 3 and LA Noire.

Batman: Arkham City is easily the biggest ever launch for Warner Bros., almost doubling the launch week number of Batman: Arkham Asylum.

The next highest new entry comes from Football Manager 2012, new at No.3 and 1,800 units behind FIFA 12 which clings on at No.2. Forza Motorsport 4 slides to No.4 and Just Dance 3 boogies down to No.5. The Sims 3 Pets is also a new entry at No.6.

PES 2012 slips to No.7, RAGE drops to No.8, Zumba Fitness is down at No.9 and Gears of War 3 is just about hanging in there at No.10.

Elsewhere two platform exclusives failed to light up the chart: Sony's Ratchet & Clank All 4 One debuts at No.24, while Microsoft's Dance Central 2 is a massive disappointment at No.40.

VideoGamer.com Analysis

It's great to see Batman: Arkham City doing so well given the amazing critical reception the title has received.

The poor sales of Dance Central 2 must be a huge worry for Microsoft which kicked off its second wave of Kinect titles last week. With a massive push for Kinect coming in the run up to Christmas, Microsoft can only hope sales improve in the weeks to come.

Friday sees the release of Microsoft's second big Kinect sequel, Kinect Sports 2, but will be overshadowed by what is sure to be one of the biggest games this year, Battlefield 3.

I like it very much, and think it offers enough of a fresh perspective to justify the £20 pricetage. Check the review page for my full thoughts, but the new weapon combo cards, the new area, and Sandbox mode are all fun. The new storyline/perspective is a lot more interesting, and the camera addition also presents opportunities for fun in multiplayer.

I like that Blue Castle Games/Capcom include all the original costume DLC hidden throughout the setting, and once you find them they are unlocked and easily equipped from your locker at any time.

Ghost5, Wido and myself all preordered it, each of us having completed DR2 several times apiece, and all love the new content.

Excellent and mass-marketed game sells very well. The surprise!! :p

Nice to see Off The Record still (just) in the Top 20 - I think it deserves a sligthly higher placement, but ce la vis.

I can see the Dance game picking up around late November/early December...
