UK Charts

Like Fallout 3 before it, which went straight to #1 back in 2008, Fallout: New Vegas has hit the jackpot for Bethesda and has also managed to outsell its predecessor on launch. Medal of Honor is now at #2, FIFA 11 at #3 and at #4 it’s a new entry for Professor Layton and the Lost Future. Sega’s Vanquish is the next new arrival at #12, followed by EA Sports MMA at #23. I thought MMA would do a little better than this seeing that UFC: Undisputed rode the chart high.

Both Enslaved and Castlevania: Lords of Shadow have had bad weeks – Enslaved has dropped from #11 to #31 while Castlevania drops from #10 to #20. That’s nothing though when compared to Naurto Shippuden: Ultimate Ninja Storm 2 which has fallen all the way from #9 to #37.

Despite good reviews DJ Hero 2 has only managed a #25 placing. This, coupled with the fact that Guitar Hero: Warriors of Rock hasn’t sold anywhere near as well as the last few Guitar Hero games, suggests that music games are on their way out. If EA’s Rock Band 3 fails to sell well then that’ll pretty much confirm it.
