F1 2011 also manages to qualify on the first row of the grid...

Two new releases have jumped to the top of the UK chart this week with Codemasters' F1 2011 parking at No.2 and Epic's conclusion to the Gears of War trilogy invading the No.1 spot.

We reviewed both games last week – F1 2011 held the 9/10 we gave last year's instalment while Gears 3 managed a rock-solid 8/10.

Incredibly, Chart-Track figures show that Gears 3 recorded almost as many launch week sales as both of its predecessors combined, making it the 7th most commercially successful Xbox 360 launch in UK history.

That said, Gears 3 was released worldwide on a Tuesday and the series' two previous titles were launched on a Friday, which effectively skews the figures a little by gifting this latest instalment three days worth of additional sales time.

Last week's high-flyers remained strong across the top 10 with the former No.1, Dead Island dropping two places to No.3 and Warhammer 40K: Space Marine dropping five places to No.7 alongside another five place drop to No.8 for Resistance 3.

Deus Ex: Human Revolution held fast at No.5 while Driver San Francisco missed a gear and dropped behind it to No.6 from its No.4 spot last week. Top 10 stalwarts, Zumba Fitness and LEGO Pirates of the Caribbean remained strong at No.4 and No.9 respectively, while Rugby World Cup 2011 filled the final spot.

  1. Gears of War 3
  2. F1 2011
  3. Dead Island
  4. Zumba Fitness
  5. Deus Ex: Human Revolution
  6. Driver San Francisco
  7. Warhammer 40K: Space Marine
  8. Resistance 3
  9. LEGO Pirates of the Caribbean
  10. Rugby World Cup 2011

lol delayed AGAIN "this was business reasons" bull**** more like they just want it to be next years "halo" that's why it diddnt come out this year otherwise the retarded 360 fanboys wouldnt be able to boast about halo's sales figures which have slowed to an almost complete standstill, and another reason why it wont come out in november this year is cause of the epic fail that is kinect "many shops accross the country have lots of preorders but no where near as much as microsofts predicting", why dont microsoft just stop this BS and just release it now, sony is releasing GT5 next month and even back at E3 they havnt delayed it anymore cause they knew move wasnt a big seller from release, why cant microsoft just accept the same with kinect and get there heads out of there a**es and do somthing for the gamers instead of there share holders.

Let them have their flame wars, h7pe. Best thing is to not get involved in my experience.

gfh-77... It doesn't matter what the likes of you and me think. This site will always be full of fanboys trying to prove " their " console is better than others. We will never see a peaceful debate on gaming!
