UK charts: Fable 2 straight in at No. 1

MS dominating top ten. Full top 40 inside.

Fable 2 has gone straight in at number one on the UK all-formats software chart, making it the fifth fastest-selling Xbox 360 game of all time. (GTA IV's the fastest ever, if you were wondering. Probably not.)

According to data providers Chart-Track sales of last week's chart-topper, Pro Evolution Soccer 2009, have fallen more than 50 per cent - leaving the game in fourth place. FIFA 09 sales are also down, this time by nearly a quarter, and it's at number three.

So who's in the No. 2 spot? Why, it's Far Cry 2, making its chart debut this week. A third of copies sold were for PS3, while 43 per cent were for Xbox 360 and 24 per cent for PC. Other new entries in the top ten include Dead Space at No. 6 and Midnight Club: Los Angeles at No. 10.

Nintendo's maintaining a presence in the top ten with Wii Fit and Mario Kart Wii at 8 and 9 respectively. However, what's more unusual is to see is Microsoft claiming the best-selling version of five out of the top six games in this week's chart. Gosh.
