Fable III Tops UK Charts, The Force Unleashed II Makes Top Five
Microsoft and Lionhead Studios' Fable III debuted at number one in the UK this week, beating Fable II's launch week sales by roughly 6000 units, reports tracking firm Chart-Track.
For the week ended October 30, EA's FIFA 11 took the number two spot on the all platforms chart, and Fallout: New Vegas, last week's top title, rounded out the top three.
LucasArts' third person action title Star Wars: The Force Unleashed II launched at number five, and THQ's WWE Smackdown vs Raw 2011 debuted at number seven.
The final new title in the top 10 this week was the console version of EA's The Sims 3, which launched at number nine.
EA and Harmonix's Rock Band 3 missed the top 10 at number 26, though it debuted late in the week, and had less time on the market as other new titles.
Titles dropping from the top 10 this week include Wii Party, Wii Sports Resort, F1 2010, and Dead Rising 2.
