Forums - Sales Discussion - PAL: Week 44 Charts

From Chart Track:

Microsoft and Fable II’s fairytale start to life in the All Formats Chart is cut short by Bethesda’s ‘Fallout 3’ which hands the well respected American developer their first self-published UK All Formats No1.

‘Fallout 3’ was launched on Xbox 360 (55%), PS3 (28%) and PC (17%) and tops each of its individual charts this week with the Xbox 360 launch outselling that of Bethesda’s critically acclaimed ‘Elder Scrolls IV: Oblivion’ by 57%. The original Fallout was launched in Q1 1998 and ‘Fallout 2’ in Q4 1998, so gamers have had to wait 10 years for the 3rd official Fallout game. It appears that it was well worth the wait as in two days ‘Fallout 3’ has outsold the total sales to date of every previous Fallout game combined (including spin-offs ‘Fallout Tactics’ and ‘Fallout: Brotherhood of Steel’). Sales of ‘Fable II’ drop 51%, falling from No1 to No4, while ‘FIFA 09’ moves in the other direction, up from No3 to No2. ‘Wii Fit’ enjoys its 3rd best week ever with sales jumping an impressive 126%, up from No8 to No3 and outselling ‘Fallout 3’ on Xbox 360 to become this week’s top selling title across a single format in terms of both units and revenue.

Konami’s ‘Pro Evolution Soccer 2009’ slips one place to No5 despite the launch of the PS2 version, which is this week’s top selling version of ‘PES 2009’, accounting for 38% of sales, ahead of PS3 and Xbox 360, both 30%. ‘Far Cry 2’ falls from No2 to No6, ahead of Activision Blizzard’s new Bond game ‘Quantum of Solace’, debuting appropriately at No7. ‘LEGO Batman’ from Warner Bros. is down one place to No8, but only 700 sales behind Bond. The top 8 games this week are all from different publishers with Nintendo the only publisher to have two Top 10 games. THQ round off the All Formats Top 10 as ‘Saints Row 2’ drops 5 places to No10. There are new entries for ‘Command & Conquer: Red Alert 3’ at No15, ‘MySims Kingdom’ at No25, ‘More Touchmaster’ at No28 and DS ‘High School Musical 3: Senior Year’ at No29.

Wow @ WiiFit
Is Disaster a Disaster or is there an other reason why it isn't in the charts?



In the other thread they said that disaster didnt even make it to the Nintendo top 50... what a shame =

So, Fallout 3 didn't do that well in UK ?

FIFA 09 still selling much better on 360 in footie crazy UK.

Well done Fallout 3 360 even in the midst of Fable 2 and upcoming Gears 2.

wots the individual sales of each game.
seems like there is not much difference between the sales unit of the top 20 games...

Not a good debut for PES PS2. Fallout does OK, but not spectacular. Is this Valkyria Chronicles first week or the next?
