UK Charts: FIFA 11 Sets Records, Halo Reach Drops Further

By Darryl Kaye on October 4, 2010, 8:36AM EDT

FIFA 11 launched at the end of last week and EA had some really high expectations for the title. Expectations which now seem perfectly justified as the title became the third biggest video game launch in UK history and in-turn, set a record for the best football game launch in UK history.

F1 2010 also saw its initial success sustained and Dead Rising 2 managed to climb to third at the expense of Halo: Reach. Tiger Woods PGA Tour 11 also saw a predictable climb due to the Ryder Cup that's currently taking place in Wales.

Next week will certainly be interesting, as some heavy hitters will enter the fray, like PES 2011, CastleVania: Lord of Shadows and Enslaved.
