Bethesda tops UK chart as Layton makes top 5

Fallout outsells Medal of Honor for top spot, DJ Hero 2 debuts at 25

Bethesda's Fallout: New Vegas has hit the top spot in the UK chart on its opening week, knocking Medal of Honor to second.

The latest Professor Layton title, The Unwound Future, enters at fourth - giving Nintendo three first-party games in the top ten.

Elsewhere, Activision's DJ Hero 2 makes a disappointing start, only managing 25th on its opening week. Platinum's Vanquish just misses out on the top ten despite winning high praise at review, entering the chart at number twelve.

Halo: Reach continues to decline in sales, dropping to eleventh after five weeks on sale, leapfrogging Dead Rising 2 at tenth.

I hope Vanquish has steady sales figures, rather than tailing off quickly like most big games tend to. I've been playing it all weekend and think it's absolutely brilliantly batshit mental - definitely one of the best third-person shooters I've played in some time.

Hmmm Castelvania droped a lot and Enslaved isn`t even in the top 30 anymore :(

Guess Fallout will not be there for too long expect next week to take SW:TFU 2 to take over one given the first one was already selling well. From now till Christmas there is probably every week a new number one.

Vanquish looks awesome...I hadn't heard anything about it until today though.
