Lego Batman 2 has refused to let up since its launch last month, now claiming its fifth consecutive number one in the UK sales charts since its initial release.

For the week ended July 21, and according to data from tracking firm Chart-Track, sales fell by 10 percent week-over-week, yet the title still held on to the top spot despite Olympics fever boosting sales for both London 2012: The Official Video Game and Mario & Sonic London 2012 Olympic Games.

The only new entry in the charts last week was Square's 3DS-exclusive Kingdom Hearts 3D: Dream Drop Distance, which entered the charts at a respectable sixth place.

Tom Clancy's Ghost Recon: Future Soldier jumped back up the chart to number three with a 40 percent increase in sales, thanks to a price drop, while sales of The Amazing Spider-Man continued to feed off the publicity surrounding its movie counterpart.

Below are Chart-Track's all-platforms sales charts, which include unit sales of all versions of a given title, and the individual platform charts, which treat individual SKUs separately.
