Weekly UK App Store Game Charts: Hitman and Spider-Man team up to hit top

Starting this week, is going to be carrying exclusive weekly App Store game charts for the UK, courtesy of the good folks at Apple.

Though the App Store itself gives a good indication of what's selling and what's not, these are actually the first week long game charts Apple has ever published for the UK.

Thanks to some high-powered meetings featuring executives in suits, espressos on tap and twenty foot long glass tables atop skyscrapers on both sides of the Atlantic, we've got hold of them.

Given this is the first week they've been published, we'll save all talk of 'high risers' and 'hot new entries' for next week - or, perhaps, never, given top ten lists tend to be somewhat self-explanatory.
