UK Chart: Fallout: New Vegas wins big

New Vegas enters the chart at number one; Professor Layton and the Lost Future debuts at four, Vanquish scrapes in at 12.

Bethesda's Fallout: New Vegas, released on October 22, has topped the UK sales chart in its first week. It ousts EA's Medal of Honor reboot, which had debuted there only last week. EA's FIFA II likewise slips down one place into third.

The latest Professor Layton game joins the chart at number four. Professor Layton and the Lost Future is the third title in the well-received Nintendo DS puzzle series; the first game entered the UK chart at number six in 2008, with the sequel debuting at number two last year. Third-person shooter Vanquish meets with less success, taking only 12th place in its first week, despite strong reviews for this latest work from Bayonetta maker Platinum Games.

Viva New Vegas.

Expect tough competition in the upper reaches of the sales chart this week, with Fable III, Rock Band 3, Star Wars: The Force Unleashed II and the console versions of The Sims 3 out on Friday.

Fallout NV is amazing! I only had one really bad bug and it i had to restart the whole game from level 1 to fix it. I was a little pissed but its all good now!

The only bugs ive seen in fallout New Vegas (Xbox 360 Verson) is.... taking too long loading... and 2 freeze ups, but its probably dew to the fact i was playing it too much!

Vanquish looks like alot of fun, but with an 8 hour single player campain its not worth the money right now. Give it a few months and I'll pick it up at a lower price.

With medal of honor second i could care less that fallout new vegas is first. Since moh is so bad that new vegas can only be better. But seriously dead rising 2 on 10?

no surprises New Vegas is a hit over here. we're nose-diving at break neck speed into another BRUTAL cold, inhospitable winter, we're all broke and being over taxed for our alcohol and public recreation .. bugs or not, a game with THAT many hours of gameplay is going to be a winner :)

MoH IS a "Modern Warfare" type of shooter that relies on heavily scripted events that drive it's shooting. Just because it's set in a different location doesn't make it a "unique non-generic" shooter. Just sayin'.

@lightwarrior179 How can MoH be generic,I know of no other fps out there that is set in the current Afghan war period.There are plenty of "modern warfare" titles but none as far as I know of that are set in the same period.As far as fps games go,MoH is a strong game and offers good replay value with competitive campaign leaderboards and strong multiplayer. Vanquish is unique and superb but it's too short and with the lack of multiplayer it's not worth buying;just rent.Fallout's always worth a buy because it offers a really long campaign.

New Vegas is great, yes it has bugs but for me New Vegas is a far better game.

I am surprised to see that MoH is still out there on No.2. Have people not got enough of generic shooters with forced-multiplayers? No wonder something as unique as Vanquish is stranded at No.12

I'm new to Fallout I bought the PC version of Fallout New Vegas. I didn't face any bug till now I heard that the X360 and PS3 are the ones who have much bugs. The game is awesome but there are better .

I'm hanging back from buying this game for the time being hoping that a lot of the bugs are fixed in a few updates.

Yeah your future really will be lost if you keep coming in at 4! Your days are numbered "Professor!" (He's probably not even a real one! You can download degrees off the Internet these days you know!)

Not really surprising that MOH got kicked out so fast. New Vegas had way more hype then EA's non-event did.
