FIFA 11 has become the third biggest ever game launch in UK history. Oh, and FIFA 11 has also unsurprisingly taken top spot in the GfK Chart-Track All Formats Software chart.
The achievement means that FIFA 11 is the strongest ever launch in FIFA history, with the only other games with more successful launches being Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 2 and Grand Theft Auto IV. FIFA 11 was released on Friday, with various UK retailers attempting to offer consumers the best deal. The record breaking, chart-topping achievements of FIFA 11 mean that last week’s number one, F1 2010, has dropped to second place in the UK chart.
Capcom’s Dead Rising 2 remains in third position, moving ahead of Halo: Reach which drops two places from second to fourth.
Guitar Hero: Warriors of Rock moves up one to fifth place. Ryder Cup fever has played a part in Tiger Woods PGA Tour 11 re-entering the top ten in sixth position.
Sony PlayStation Move game Sports Champions drops from fifth to seventh, while pushing Prince of Persia: The Forgotten Sands down one more position to eighth. Toy Story 3 still remains in ninth place. PC exclusive title Civilization V occupies the final place in the GfK Chart-Track top ten, having entered in fourth last week. Former chart topper Mafia II drops out of the top ten and into eleventh place.
The full GFK Chart-Track top ten for the week ending October 2nd is as follows:
1. FIFA 11 (EA)
2. F1 2010 (Codemasters)
3. Dead Rising 2 (Capcom)

So Train2Game, which of you have got your hands on FIFA 11? Was it always inevitable FIFA 11 would top the charts? And with PES 2011 released this week, will FIFA 11 still be top of the league next Monday? Could Enslaved: Odyssey to the West be a contender?
