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.
