UK Charts: Football, football, football, FOOTBALL!

Fable III enjoyed a single week at the top of the chart before the inevitable happened. Lionhead’s “amazing” role playing game has been shunted into third place by a pair of football games, with Football Manager 2011 taking first, and FIFA 11 taking second. Oh you Brits and your love of incredibly boring sports!

Elsewhere, Professor Layton and the Lost Future jumps up to fifth place, while Goldeneye 007 and 007: Blood Stone debut at thirteen and eighteen respectively, arguably disappointing positions for such a major license published by such a powerful company. Is Bond not cool anymore?
