In just a week since its launch in the region, Electronic Arts' FIFA 11 has sold 821,000 copies across all platforms in the U.K., climbing to the top of local sales charts.

The soccer game made a total of 28.93 million ($45.8 million), from these sales, according to a report from trade site MCV. It also achieved the second biggest 24-hour launch-sell through in UK history with over 684,000 units moved, bested only by Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 2's 1.23 million record.

Codemasters' Formula One racing game F1 2010 (PS3, Xbox 360, and PC), which debuted at #1 in Chart-Track's sales tally last week, dropped to #2, followed by other recently launched games like Capcom's Dead Rising 2, Microsoft's Halo: Reach, and Activision Blizzard's Guitar Hero: Warriors of Rock.

After falling off the chart last week, Electronic Arts' Tiger Woods PGA Tour 11 pulled itself back into the top ten to #6, as Sony's PlayStation Move-only Sports Champions dropped two places to #7.

Ubisoft's Prince of Persia: The Forgotten Sands, Disney's Toy Story 3, and Take-Two's PC-only Civilization V take up the last three spots of the all platforms top ten list in that order, the last of which fel from #4 last week.

Titles dropping from the top 10 this week include Square Enix's PC MMORPG Final Fantasy XIV and Take-Two's multiplatform mobster game Mafia II. Below are Chart-Track's all-platforms sales charts, which include unit sales of all versions of a given title.
