Football Manager 2011 top of UK chart, first weekend beats PES

Sports Interactive's Football Manager 2011 has rocketed to the top of the UK all formats chart, unlike Activision's new James Bond instalments.

FM 2011's first weekend sales beat multi platform PES 2011's, says studio boss Miles Jacobson. Goldeneye 007 rebooted 13th, Blood Stone 18th.

"Err – have just been told that our first weekend sales on one format beat Pro Evo’s first weekend on multiple formats. Gulp,"  twittered Sports Interactive's Miles Jacobson. Football Manager 2011 is the latest PC only title to conquer the UK chart.

Goldeneye 007's reboot entered 13th while Bizaree Creations' 007: Blood Stone was a lacklustre 18th for its debut. Fallout: New Vegas has fallen from 3rd to 7th. Fable III was unseated by FM 2011's arrival with FIFA 11 holding 2nd place.

Below is the UK all format chart for the week ending November 6th.
