UK Video Game Charts: Football Manager 2011 Tops the League
Miles Jacobson was right to feel confident about the Football Manager brand, as the 2011 release has claimed the #1 spot in this week's UK Video Game Chart.

UK Video Game Charts Top 10
{NE} - 1 - Football Manager 2011 - Sega
{2} - 2 - FIFA 11 - EA
{1} - 3 - Fable III - Microsoft
{4} - 4 - Just Dance 2 - Ubisoft
{8} - 5 - Professor Layton and the Lost Future - Nintendo
{RE} - 6 - New Super Mario Bros Wii - Nintendo
{3} - 7 - Fallout: New Vegas - Bethesda
{6} - 8 - Medal of Honor - EA
{5} - 9 - Star Wars: The Force Unleashed II - LucasArts
{9} - 10 - The Sims 3 - EA

The footy sim has even shoved FIFA 11 down a place in the Top 10, with sales of EA's flagship sports title dropping 24%. Lionhead's Fable III rests at #3 with 64% less units sold. Nintendo claims two spots in the chart, with the latest Professor Layton game jumping from #8 to #5 despite a 35% sales drop, and New Super Mario Bros. Wii reclaiming #6 after the 20th Anniversary red Wii bundle shot game sales up by 99%.

Activision is gearing up for a killer week in the charts with the release of Call of Duty: Black Ops on Tuesday. But the publisher did also have two new releases this past week focusing on another key license - James Bond. Unfortunately for 007, Blood Stone on the Xbox 360 and PS3 debuted at #18 while Goldeneye 007 on the Wii - a game that was almost guaranteed cult success - also failed to crack the Top 10 by only reaching #13.
