Dark Souls, the action and role play mix from From Software and Namco Bandai, has taken third place in the United Kingdom during its first week on sale, showing that even a gaming experience that is self described as hardcore can be commercially successful.
Gears of War 3, a former number one, has fallen on hard times and has slid down two places to reach four while F1 2011, the Formula One simulation from Codemasters, shows that it still has some fuel left in the sales tank by sitting in fifth place.
Surprisingly Zumba Fitness, the mix between exercise and dancing from 505 Games, has also fallen some places to occupy sixth this week with Dead Island, the zombie battling action game from Deep Silver, coming in at number seven.
