Fable III atop of the UK chart

New: Star Wars! WWE! Sims 3! Rock Band!

Update: UKIE has released sales figures for the top 10 games. These show that leader Fable III sold 128,895 copies since launch on Friday - 6000 more than Fable II managed.

That makes Fable III the 13th biggest Xbox 360 launch ever. Halo: Reach, remember, is the largest.

Fable III also represents Microsoft's third Xbox 360 exlcusive UK all-formats number one this year.

Sales for the rest of the top 10 are as follows:

  1. Fable III - 128,895
  2. FIFA 11 - 75,703
  3. Fallout: New Vegas - 69,613
  4. Just Dance 2 - 58,375
  5. Star Wars: The Force Unleashed II - 56,054
  6. Medal of Honor - 48,650
  7. WWE Smackdown VS Raw 2011 - 47,785
  8. Professor Layton and the Lost Future - 45,470
  9. The Sims 3 - 28,624
  10. PES 2011 - 26,732

Original story: Fable III is the new leader of the UK all-formats chart.

The Xbox 360 exclusive beat off challenges from fellow newcomers Star Wars: The Force Unleashed II (fifth), WWE SmackDown vs. RAW 2011 (seventh) and The Sims 3 on console (ninth).

Harmonix's fantastic Rock Band 3 spent a first week in 26th, with a significant 61 per cent of sales made on Xbox 360. The Sims 3 PC expansion Late Night arrived in 15th.

FIFA 11 held strong to take second, last week's leader Fallout: New Vegas was third and Just Dance 2 was fourth.

Medal of Honor occupied sixth, Professor Layton and the Lost Future seventh and PES 2011 rounded the chart out in 10th.

Rock Band 3's weak performance this week underscored a flagging music genre. Rival Guitar Hero: Warriors of Rock dropped again to 27th, and DJ Hero spent its second week down in 39th.

Vanquish struggled, too - dropping from 12th to 28th after two weeks on sale.

This week's winner: Fable III. EG plays the first 15 minutes.
