LEGO Batman 2 is still sitting pretty at the top of the pack this week, for the third time, with Dead Island's GOTY Edition the only proper newcomer in the top ten this week.
Modern Warfare 3 jumps 26 places back into view, and FIFA Street climbs up the table once again to sneak back into the top flight. Theatrerhythm makes its debut at #19, and Funcom's ambitious MMO - The Secret World - slips into the top 40 at #38.

Spider-Man, Spider-Man. He does whatever a Spider-Man. Though Beenox' latest movie tie-in can't quite knock Lego Batman 2 off of this week's top spot, instead swinging into second place ahead of newly-released shooter Spec Ops: The Line.
SEGA's official London 2012 game (not the Sonic and Mario version) clocks in at a respectable fourth, further relegating chart mainstay FIFA 12 into fifth place, where it may continue to languish now that the Euros have come to an end. At the bottom end, the Metal Gear Solid HD collection caps off the top ten; its sales revitalised by the new Vita version. I daresay that many of you will have bought it on the PlayStation Store at its (surprisingly?) competitive price of £19.99.

IGN went live with an early E3 trailer for Beenox and Activision's upcoming The Amazing Spider-man, and it looks pretty amazing. We still have fond memories of slinging it Spidey-style through the streets of Manhattan in Spider-man 2, and this trailer features enough swinging action, and bad guy beatdowns to make us interested. Jon'll have a hands-on report from the show later this month.
Best cameo ever? Legendary comic designer Stan Lee will be a playable character in The Amazing Spider-Man; the movie tie-in set to hit this summer.
Details are scarce, and we don't know whether Lee will be an awesome new character or just a skin (fingers crossed for the former), but it's a fun bit of fan service nonetheless. You can see the interview with Addict Of Fiction here.
Announced - sort of - last week at New York ComicCon, we now have a trailer - albeit filmed off a low-res phone or camera - and some scant details on The Amazing Spider-Man game coming from Beenox. The trailer is pretty good actually, suggesting the game is further along in development than we expected, and showcases what appears to be a return to an open-ended - if not quite open-world - New York city, with plenty of web-slinging and even a few giant, multi-legged mechas thrown in for good measure.Hit the jump for more on the game
With a Men in Black 3 game announced earlier today, a fellow Sony Pictures outing has made the jump to home consoles, with Marc Webb's The Amazing Spider-Man reboot announced by Activision over at New York ComicCon. We've not much else to go on, other than a poster outing the title, which features Andrew Garfield's web-slinger slinging himself towards us.
We do seemingly have a developer attached, however, with a Beenox Studios logo visible at the bottom of the poster. Beenox, you'll remember, were behind the solid Spidey outing, Shattered Dimensions, and the less solid-looking Edge of Time, which is very close to release. Third times the charm, some say. [IGN]
