Batman: Arkham Asylum glides to top spot in UK

You come to Joystiq for the lulz about video games, but we've got something a little extra today: Proof of a higher power. Not just that, but a higher power that loves you and rewards awesome games. According to Chart-Track, Batman: Arkham Asylum has taken the top spot in the UK sales charts for the week, beating out Wii Sports Resort, which seems nothing short of miraculous from where we're sitting.

The console split was pretty close to even, with 55 percent on Xbox and 45 on PS3, so it would seem that the Joker exclusivity thing panned out. We're so pleased that Arkham's performing well that we can't find anything to be snarky about. Imagine that!
