UK CHART: Fable 3 takes the throne

Lionhead's latest is Xbox 360's 13th biggest UK launch title ever

Fable 3 has entered the UK all formats chart at No.1.


Lionhead's excellent title - check out CVG's Fable 3 Review - beats Fable 2's week one sales performance by 6,000 copies to become the 13th biggest Xbox 360 launch title ever in the UK.

FIFA 11 places at No.2 on the UKIE/GfK-ChartTrack rankings, ahead of former chart-topper Fallout 3, Just Dance 2 and new entry Star Wars: The Force Unleashed II.

Elsewhere, The Sims 3 re-enters the top ten at No.9 following the release of the console versions last week, while The Sims 3: Late Night debuts at No.15 and The X Factor at No.37.

While it has received excellent reviews, the pricey Rock Band 3 makes its chart bow at No.26.
