WB Games' Batman: Arkham Origins, the first in the series not from Rocksteady, is perched atop the UK chart. It has almost matched Arkham Asylum's week one sales, but not follow-up Arkham City.

Rocksteady's sequel is near double that of Arkham Origins in opening sales. Grand Theft Auto V has slipped second, followed by FIFA 14 third. Rocksmith 2014 launched fifteenth.

The top number one Batman game in the UK ever? That still belongs to 2008's LEGO Batman: The Videogame. Below is the UK all format chart top 40 for the week ending October 26th.

New game, polished pedigree....I'm not surprised. We'll see in a fortnight though as "CoD: Ghosts" enters the arena.
