Fable III topples Fallout and MOH from UK chart

Latest Lionhead number 1, with new entries from WWE and Star Wars

Microsoft's latest Fable game has shot straight to the head of the UK software charts, knocking last week's champ Fallout: New Vegas down to third place.

In its third week on sale, EA's Medal of Honor has slumped to sixth place, overtaken by Ubisoft's Wii title Just Dance 2 and a new entry in the shape of LucasArts' Force Unleashed sequel.

The only other new entry comes from the latest in THQ's long-running WWE wrestling series, although EA's belated release of console adaptations of PC hit The Sims 3 arguably constitutes a new arrival in ninth place.

While EA may be lamenting the performance of Medal of Honor, its latest FIFA continues to perform well - rising back up to second place.

But despite enormous critical acclaim, the EA-distributed Rock Band 3 entered the charts at just 26th position.
