Forza Motorsport 4 races into pole position

New Spider-Man, Spyro, Ace Combat and Dead Rising miss top ten spots on release

Forza Motorsport 4 has knocked FIFA 12 off the top spot by just 700 sales, making it the biggest launch week ever for a racing game on Xbox 360.

There are six other new entries making their debut in the top 20 this week too, with Just Dance 3 moving into third place, Pro Evolution Soccer arriving at number 5 and Jonah Lomu Rugby Challenge taking advantage of the current hype around the sport to enter at 10.

There were a number of big names that failed to break the top ten on release, including Namco's Ace Combat: Assault Horizon at 12, Dead Rising 2: Off The Record at 14 and Skylanders: Spyro's Adventure at 16. Spider-Man: Edge Of Time only managed number 39 in its first week.
