After a very successful launch last week, EA Sports' FIFA 11 maintains the top sales spot in the UK, beating out Konami's Pro Evolution Soccer 2011, reports tracking firm Chart-Track.

For the week ended October 9, Pro Evolution Soccer 2011 debuted at number two despite FIFA 11's 63 percent sales decline, which marks the first time a Pro Evolution Soccer title has not debuted in the number one spot since the series began in 2001.

Capcom's zombie action title Dead Rising 2 landed in third place, followed by other recently launched games including Codemasters' F1 2010 and Bungie's Halo: Reach.

Konami's Castlevania: Lords of Shadow and Enslaved: Odyssey to the West, both third-person action titles, debuted in the top 10 at number six and number seven, respectively.

The final new title on the charts this week is Nintendo's multiplayer mini-game suite Wii Party, which rounds out the list at number 10.

Falling from the top 10 this week are Toy Story 3, Guitar Hero: Warriors of Rock, Sports Champions, and Prince of Persia: The Forgotten Sands.

Below are Chart-Track's all-platforms sales charts, which include unit sales of all versions of a given title.
