UK Chart: Fallout: New Vegas goes top

Fallout: New Vegas

Fallout: New Vegas has won big in its first week on release and topped the GFK Chart-Track All Formats Chart. It seems the gaming public haven’t been dissuaded by reports of Fallout: New Vegas being rather on the buggy side. In fact, Fallout: New Vegas has sold more in its first week than previous title Fallout 3 did, thus giving publisher Bethesda a new most successful debut week game.

The success of Fallout: New Vegas means that Medal of Honor is pushed down to second after claiming first place last week. FIFA 11 also drops down one to third place, after previously holding top spot before being kicked into touch by Medal of Honor last week.

There’s another new entry in the top ten, with Nintendo DS puzzler Professor Layton and the Lost Future selling strongly and taking fourth place, while Just Dance 2 drops from third to fifth spot.  Nintendo titles claim sixth and seventh spots, with Wii Party having dropped two places from fourth, while Wii Sports Resort jumps seven places up the chart and re-enters the top ten.

Former pole sitter F1 2010 continues to stay in the points paying positions, despite dropping two places to eighth. Ninth and tenth spots are occupied by Pro Evolution Soccer and Dead Rising 2 which dropped from fifth and seventh respectively.  Halo: Reach drops out of the top ten into 11th spot.

In disappointing news for SEGA, their shooter Vanquish failed to break the top ten, entering the UK software chart in 12th place. However, Vanquish fared better than EA Sports MMA and DJ Hero 2 which both failed to make the top twenty in their first weeks. EA Sports MMA entered the chart in 23rd while DJ Hero 2 took 25th position.

The full UKIE GfK Chart-Track All Formats Top Ten for the week ending October 23rd is as follows:

1. Fallout: New Vegas (Bethesda)
2. Medal of Honor (EA)
3. FIFA 11 (EA)
4. Professor Layton and the Lost Future (Nintendo)
5. Just Dance 2 (Ubisoft)
6. Wii Party (Nintendo)
7. Wii Sports Resort (Nintendo)
8. F1 2010 (Codemasters)
9. PES 2011 (Konami)
10. Dead Rising 2 (Capcom)

So Train2Game, have you bought any of this weeks new entries? If so, what are your thoughts on Fallout: New Vegas, Professor Layton and the Lost Future, EA Sports MMA or DJ Hero 2?

Will Fallout: New Vegas hold onto top spot next week? Or could Fable III, Star Wars: The Force Unleashed II or WWE Smackdown vs Raw 2011 knock Fallout: New Vegas down?
